I immediately began to rehearse the worse-case-scenario (i.e., being 80 and single) and I was tempted to push God out the way and handle the match making on my own because He clearly didn’t understand that my hopeless romantic self needs somebody to be hopelessly romantic with and that I needed that somebody, like yesterday.
It is almost midnight and I am finally finished editing my video for this Crown Tip Thursday (I have a very slow computer and I am a perfectionist; those two things combined.....sis, pray for me). In this video, I share some of the resources I have been using over the last few months on my Jesus dates, and during my bible study time. These resources have been essential to my continued spiritual growth and each has challenged me to seek the Lord with my whole heart.
He wanted it ALL--my heartbreak, my shame, the condemnation that I heaped on my own head. Was he happy with my decisions, heck no! He grieved my sin. But he saw the end from the beginning and pursued me relentlessly because my purpose was not canceled the day my son was born. Matter of fact, he has opened my eyes to see how every high and low of my twenties has led me to this very moment in my life. Even to this blog.
Sis, maybe your insecurities don't keep you from posing in front of a camera. But do they stop you from speaking up in the Boardroom? taking that college class? leading a song on Sunday mornings? Teaching.....you fill in the blank. If our faith is in Christ, we must put our faith into action and trust what he says about us, in ALL areas of our lives. You are an image-bearer of the Most High, don't doubt it, don't downplay it! Lift your head with BOLDNESS and walk it, like you talk it. I'm trying to.
