One Year No Dating Challenge

Let me go on record saying that when I wrote my last post, I had no idea that the Lord was about to call me into a new season of life. I was taken by surprise, and didn’t even know just how much I would need that post.

But being led by the Spirit happens (I get a lot of it wrong, but I pray to get this right), and so today, I am writing to talk about this new season…what it is, why I’m doing it, and what it’s all about. Let me also say that I do not think it’s a good idea or even the right idea for everyone. I think you have to examine where you are in your own life and ultimately your relationship with Lord, and then see where to go from there. I also know that it’s important to pray about it before you dive in blindly…then crash and burn from not being equipped or adequately prepared.

Why It’s Okay to Be Alone


 
We don't think it's okay to be alone.  Being alone has a stigma.  Nobody wants to "be alone."  I have learned that being alone is one of the greatest things.  There are no distractions, and there is nothing to compete for my attention or draw my focus away from what I'm trying to accomplish at the given moment.  Being someone who has never really given being alone a chance, I never thought I would be the one to say this, but…being alone is such a blessing.

2015 Goals

Goals

As cliché as it may be, a new year is the perfect opportunity to work towards growth and improvement. The last year was a rollercoaster for me. It was the best and worst of times. The grace of God has never been more evident in my life than in 2014. In order to not make some of the same mistakes again and to stop being complacent in life I wanted to write out a specific set of goals for this year. The value of physically writing out your goals is limitless. I know that if I want to see change in my life, then I must be willing to change myself. So if I can stretch myself to complete these tasks, then no matter 2015 may bring…I can be better prepared. Ultimately I know that the Lord is in control and my trust is in Him. But I also know that I must be a responsible steward of myself, time, relationships, and possessions. I can do so by investing in personal growth, improving my time management, building old relationships and cultivating new ones, and glorifying God with my possessions. My goals span all areas, including spiritual, physical, and financial. Here goes:
