“Most people don’t wait long enough on me.” –God Wow! How accurate is that sentence? We’ll admit it; A lot of us here are impatient. We hate long lines, we dread traffic, we get frustrated when God says “no,” but we really feel pained when he says “not yet!” For some reason, hearing “not yet” hurts more than hearing “no.” We think it’s because, when God says “not yet,” we know the good thing is coming,...

At some point we have all made these wonderful plans of where we’d all be in ten years post high school or college. And, it’s only proven unsuccessful, as we often look at where we are now and realize that our lives are nothing as we had planned so many years ago. For me — and maybe your dreams were similar — I imagined being married with children, living in a huge house etc. with a...

Waiting on God is good, but can be tough in the society we live in. Sometimes we need to ask: Are we waiting on God or is God waiting on us? At times, we pray for things expecting God to move, when in reality, God is honestly waiting for us to walk through a door He has already opened. I was in a conversation with a friend, and we were evaluating the importance of prayer....

There is a common need that all people have in this life — the need to be connected with people in a real way. This is the reason that solitary confinement is the worst punishment known to man. As a man, I feel at times that I can take on and conquer the world no matter how much physical pain I’m feeling. But,  isolation is a different kind of pain. I think it is important to...

You are probably familiar with those infamous questions like, “When are you going to get married?” and “Why aren’t you married yet?” and “When are you going to have kids?” There are tons of other similar questions and statements launched at singles by family, friends, and even strangers. According to society, marriage is the typical idea of the “American Dream”. To attain this “American Dream,” many of us are led to believe that one should graduate from high school,...

Timelines. They take many forms and we all have them: career, fitness goals, and even ones for relationships. Have you ever wondered why waiting for Mr. or Mrs. Right feels like forever, even though you are “doing everything right”? If you’re like some of us, you’ve probably thought once or twice, “I should be married with kids and own a house by now. Things just aren’t going according to plan.” It’s easy to get frustrated...

Another year has gone by and the Facebook status still says “single.” Maybe you’re the only single woman in your circle, and you are starting to wonder why Christian men are not pursuing you. Disappointment sets in and you question if there is something wrong with you. You wonder … God, when will it be my turn? We can understand the difficulty of waiting to be found while there seems to be an extinction of...

As descendants of Adam and Eve, we all have this inner longing to be with someone who will fulfill our desires of companionship. We read stories like those of Boaz and Ruth and we immediately start to visualize a person (maybe we know them, or maybe we don’t) as the “other half” to our own love stories. As godly single women longing to be pursued by a godly man, it’s easy to sit and go...

Written By: Richelle Henry I used to pray and be mad at God.  I was so mad at the fact that He wouldn’t listen to me concerning my future spouse anymore. I was so mad that, try as I might, He still wouldn’t give me what I wanted. I mean, I’ve been faithful. I cut off all those “randoms,” and I even stopped praying about it and I’m still here. Single.   How often have...

This is a little embarrassing for me to admit, but hey, I’m feeling pretty generous today: most of what I learned about romance, I learned from Saved by the Bell. Zack Morris, the smooth-talking, charismatic, “blonde Tom Cruise” protagonist had that effect on lots of men-in-training in the late 80’s to mid 90’s. As a burgeoning teen in late 90’s, I started to see that reality truly is stranger than fiction. Zack Morris’ charm only...
