When you aren’t a child/teenager, you aren’t married, and you’re not a mom, where do you fit within God’s community on earth? While I have no doubt that God loves me and that I’m truly not alone in my struggle (since He is always present in my life), I still feel like a square peg trying to find a square hole here on earth.
I have always done what I was supposed to do in order to be the “good girl,” and have remained the definition of single.

We have to allow God to lovingly pick us up from our low place on the floor, dust us off, and breathe His love into us once again because without God, we can’t ever feel real contentment or true happiness.

Isaiah describes pride as trying to raise ourselves above God or make ourselves like God and in Genesis 3:2-6 we see Eve being deceived by the enemy … Continue reading Proud

I once saw a meme that showed a cartoon of a girl with her parents who were telling her she was beautiful. The … Continue reading Potato Head
