to be a wife
to be a mom
to follow Christ with my whole life
and to fall more in love with Him everyday
Where are my unmarried, single-girl bloggers at??
I feel like we're not a hugely represented group in the blogosphere.
Maybe it's just because nearly every blog I follow seems to be written by either a newly engaged/ newlywed/ new mom/ or awesome mom blogger.
My perspective is a little skewed and don't you know that comparison is the thief of joy?
This in-between and sometimes frustrating stage of life involves a lot of waiting. And feeling like your on the brink of all you've ever wanted, but you're just not getting there fast enough.
Trusting in God's timing, while at the same time longing for Him to hurry it up!
I am learning BIG (sometimes hard) lessons these days. But I can so clearly hear God speaking to me everyday. Clearer than ever before.
Be patient, I have plans to prosper you. Trust me! Be HERE with me now, in this moment, in this place where I have brought you. You are exactly where I want you to be and I will not abandon you here. I know the desires of your heart.
I just have this crazy assurance that God is making me stronger, drawing me nearer, covering me in his strength. Strength to not just "get through" this stage, but strength to make much of Him all along the way- even when I'm frustrated or discouraged.
And I am finding joy and excitement.
For the future, for right now and for everything God has promised.
"Rejoice in the Lord always.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near."
Philippians 4: 4-5
