Prom was last night.. Let's just say it was disappointing I went with my group of friends.. Then it ended up just being me and my best friend who didn't have dates. So we hung out and toasted to getting fat that night. We left before prom was over. It was so noisy!!! All they played was that heavy rap music just about. We had to just about holler to be able to talk to each other. So we left and went to a nearby town and ate at Huddle House :D We had fun all by ourselves :) And the Lord protected us! I love Him so :)

Surrender... Jesus has been tugging on my heart about just surrendering to His will. Just to seek Him and be so lost in working for His kingdom. After reading Sacred Singleness a second time (Excellent book by the way) I just want to do something for Him more!!! There are so many children out there, who have no home and are being sold into slavery. There needs to be hope for these precious children. Why should we single young ladies be sitting around mourning our lonliness and feel like we are going to die if we ain't got a man. I know words are so cheap these days. But my heart burns for these children. They need momma's and daddys and love. We don't have to be married to make a difference in a child's life. Be their mother and God will be their Father.

These past few days God has been gently correcting my sighing heart. What I mean about sighing is that for example today I was unloading the dishwasher and I was thinking about how I didn't have my man yet. Then the Lord brings to my attention to surrender and my heart cries something similar to "Lord I know you have a plan, and I want to be in your will." It's not easy for my flesh to say that. I know that as long as I just get myself lost in God and work for His Kingdom. Nae, my hands are not bound, nor my feet, my heart is free to be captivated by the Saviour, to walk and live in His Spirit. Yes, I still long for the day when God sees that me and my husband are ready for each other. But right now I need (not just want) to go deeper in Jesus. I just thought of something. You know how people ask that question "So has God brought that special someone into your life?" Do the whole happy sigh thing and twist a piece of your hair and say "Yes!!! His name is

I'm soo proud of you!! You did the right thing, even when it was hard! What an example! And, this is a promise: You WILL be rewarded!! God will bless you for your obedience and surrendered and sumbmitted lifestyle!
Keep on loving, trusting, and surrendering to Him! I know this from experience, He'll always be a million times better than the best human guy ever could be for you!!

I'm sorry that your prom was not what you expected it to be. I know how you are feeling because I used to feel that way before God brought Brian to me. He may not be ready for you yet, so rather than give you someone who is "half-baked" God wants to mature him to be the man that will lead your home one day. Love you.
