I’m 30-something, single, independent. I’ve experienced a broken engagement, enough awkward first dates to last a long time, and eHarmony. Sometimes I’m frustrated, sometimes joyful. But none of those adjectives define me. And while my experiences have contributed to who I am, they don’t have the ultimate say in my identity. I am a daughter of God, a worshiper of Jesus Christ. Though singleness is difficult at times, I cling to the truth that Jesus is more than able to satisfy.
This blog is born out of a frustration with a lack of resources for Christian singles desiring to live godly in Christ. Oh, there’s plenty of books out there about whether to date or not to date, how to find the right one, how to be the right one, whether you should kiss before the altar. There’s not much that encourages us to live a purposeful, fruitful, joyful life right now. I’m tired of hearing what to do to ‘fix’ my situation, or being given an laundry list of things to do in order to find or merit a husband. I want transformation. I want a faith that trusts Christ for everything I need for life and godliness, because He says I have it in Him. I long to be filled with the fullness of Christ. And I long for others who are hurting and struggling with being single to experience the joy and blessing there is in trusting Him and living in the moment: content, at peace, and full of joy in being single and purposeful.
