Who Said You Have To Wait?

Relationships

Take the bench when He offers it with great joy, dear friends. It is His grace to show you your limitations, because in them you will be able to see more fully that He has none. And as Paul learned to rejoice in His weaknesses because in them He knew the grace of God more completely, may we rejoice in our limitations and see with heaven-set eyes that only He can do it all. The bench just might be the place you need to see this from.

Benched

Well-Watered Women

How do we patiently wait for the Lord when we do not receive the answer we are seeking? How do we get through those moments, or weeks, or years of “Not Right Now”? We long to be women who trust the faithful hand of God more than we long for His answer. Let’s lean into the Not Right Now.

Not Right Now

Well-Watered Women

Dear Single Self (& Single Friends), You are not alone. I feel I need to repeat this so it sinks into your heart, you are not alone. In the world of singleness it is easy to feel, well, singled out. Kind of like you are wearing a scarlet letter that say available and alone. You may feel lonely and you may feel hopeless, but don’t allow feelings to direct your steps.

Dear Single Self

Relationships

There is a box of letters underneath my bed that contains bits and pieces of my heart. In this box are ten years worth of letters I wrote to my future husband. Filled with longing, dreams, and unfulfilled desires, these letters became an act of surrender and trust to the Lord. Over the years the Lord transformed these letters from being about the man my heart longed for to being a love note to my Savior. In my moments of desperate longing where I cried buckets of tears (yes, I’ve cried a lot in my lifetime), the Lord has proven to me over and over that Jesus is the only Man who will ever satisfy my heart. Most of my middle and high school years could be described as a season of waiting. Even at a young age, I longed for marriage. I craved a God-sized love story. I ached for love from a man. These longings culminated in what ended up being a full box of letters hidden beneath my bed for safe keeping.

True joy, in fact, is never found in chasing the perfect. It is only found in chasing the genuine life of following Christ. It is the road less traveled, but it is the only road that brings us to true life!”

post from my sister on her journey of infertility, receiving news of the unexpected, and chasing Christ in life’s journey!

For This Child I’ve Prayed – A Post From My Sister

A Beautiful Blessing

Uncategorized

Dancing around the room, my heart beat quickly imagining my Prince I would one day dance with. Blue tattered tutu, plastic princess heels, and hair curled from my pink sponge curlers the night before, no dream was too small for my mind to imagine. And dream I did. For years I dreamed about my future husband. […]

A God-Sized Marriage

Relationships

This post is for those of you waiting on a husband. This is for those who feel lonely, alone, unwanted & confused over your singleness. You. Are. Not. Alone. (If you would like to read the e-book I wrote on “A God-Sized Love Story”, click here for the Kindle and here for the PDF version) Images by of Greg and I were taken by Nancy Ray Photography – the BEST photographer!) On November 17th, 2012, I committed before God and an audience of about 400 to give my life to Gregory Loius Saffles. Needless to say, at that very moment, my life changed.

Waiting: {the active pursuit of God}

Relationships

Ever since I was a little girl, I have longed to meet my prince charming. Most of you probably understand this desire. I watched about every princess movie available, imagined ridiculous, fairy-tale ways we would someday meet and even slept in a princess night gown…just in case he came to sweep me away! (a girl’s […]
