I know, I know. I've been woefully neglecting the site lately in favor of the Instagram and Facebook accounts, and that kind of stinks. No defense here. It's just been out out ease and the craziness of my own life. Between leaving a job, getting a new job, and now looking for a new job (long story for another day)...there hasn't been much time for more than a snippet of things here and there.
But I'm going to try and be more focused now, because I wasn't kidding back in January that God was really going to make this about a year of #Faith. It is true. I've been trying hard to trust Him in everything, and I've truly been tested. It's a real thing that, when we fully put ourselves in God's hands--when we truly trust in Him--that the enemy will come in and try to destroy our faith. The enemy will do everything he can to make us walk away out of frustration.
I wish I could say that my singleness has been the first thing on my mind, but when it comes down to living life, paying my bills is key right now. I support a parent and have furbabies that rely on me! A job is key to keeping a roof over their heads and food in their bellies. So dating? It feels like a luxury. So it's funny how what seemed so important 6 or 8 months ago now takes a backseat. That being said, by dating not being this big priority, I've also been able to relax into dating someone with no pressure to move it too fast or too far. We just enjoy some easy time together.
Weird how God uses some things like that, right? Romans 12:12 is right. Life isn't going to always be sunshine and rainbows. However God is there in our hope. He is our light. He is good and faithful. He is there in our times of affliction when the enemy attacks us. He is our strength. When we turn to Him in prayer, He answers.
Now does that mean I'm not going to keep talking about dating? Oh, no. There's so much to talk about. I mean, just this week a guy I used to date came back with one of those "How you doing?" texts. Really? You disappeared for six months! And I'm not the only one in the world dating. You all share wonderful stories--good, bad, ridiculous, fun, and inspiring--that help one another out. So no more 6 month wait. We're back on track, baby!!
