your encouragement for ablaze this week has humbled and encouraged me.
i have written every now and then on singleness because it’s something i struggle with sometimes, and i’m passionate about single women finding contentment and joy there. but it was never something i necessarily wanted to write about, because writing about it made me remember i was single, and that’s a fact on which i usually try not to dwell.
so for the first time, i really want to write and talk about how we find joy and contentment, and above all, Jesus in the midst of being single (or in a relationship or breaking up or being married, wherever it is you happen to be). i think those stages are gifts, from the mighty, benevolent hand of God Himself, and i think when we explore and probe – even though it may hurt – why He might have us there, we will learn so much more about Him and about ourselves.
but today, we want to hear from you.
we want to hear your stories, your wisdom. we want to hear about what God has taught you where you are, today, here, right now. & we want to set a blazing fire to the passion within us for His glory and for His kingdom.
it’s your turn; take the floor; link up and end ablaze with a spectacular round of contagious fireworks.
