Put me inĀ Coach

16 05 2010

My blog used to be about the clever and funny things my boyfriend Brian said. It can’t really be about that anymore because I don’t have a boyfriend named Brian. Turns out, he didn’t want to marry me either.

So a new direction is needed. While eating my heartaches worth of Graeters Black Raspberry Chip in a waffle cone with sprinkles today, the topic came up that there is a serious lack of singles ministry available in our church community.

So I came home and really thought and prayed about it. I took a bubble bath and thought about it. So I sat down and opened my study bible and began looking for references and guidance. And then I prayed some more. And cried. Well that’s putting it pretty lightly. I had a soul cleansing/wrenching sort of cry.

Here’s what I got smacked with though. I am not the only single lonely person at my church. And my church’s motto is everyone gets to play. Well guess what? I’m ready.

I got up from my knees and immediately this plan started to unfold.

It’s going to start here with verses and inspirations and book suggestions. Along with probable thoughts on the whole idea of being a Christian single in this secular polluted environment.

Todays verse (worth saying outloud trust me. seriously don’t be scared, say it outloud.) taken from the NIV version

Psalm 138 7-8

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord endures forever- do not abandon the works of your hands.”
