Singleness isn’t a disease to be cured. It’s a season to be experienced. Here’s what I’ve struggled with being single, and here’s what God says…
Sometimes, the times you are least ceremonious, the times you come to God ugly crying or confused or just feeling gross, you see God in a whole new light.
You become acquainted with how your imperfections can’t possibly wedge a single inch between you and Jesus.

I think it’s normal to wish you were dating someone when you’re single, and I’ve had that feeling before, but that’s not necessarily what I’m talking about.

Here’s the truth: I want to stay a kid forever.
Is that possible? To preserve a wild imagination in a world like this?
Is anyone else afraid that school will shut down again?
Despite the terrifying possibility, I have THIS hope…
We live in challenging times. I wrote this journal entry not long ago, and I am still challenged to this day. It is difficult realizing YOU were made for such a time, a time of chaos and deception and havoc.
But God knows what he’s doing.
