God changes our directions whether we want Him to or not...

When God is in control of your life, it doesn't matter which direction you want to turn. God will always steer you in the way that He wants you to go. I used to be scared of this, now I embrace it. Im' single and living my life in the way that God wants me to. I'm letting him take the reins of my life and lead me to do whatever He would have me to do.

So much of my life has changed in the past 6 months and I thought it was going to be scary. But I have now realized that everything I have went through since then has just been preparing me for the life that God is wanting me to lead right now. That is amazing! I signed up to volunteer with the SC chapter of Make-A-Wish and Ronald McDonald House and I got my paperwork for both of them. I can't wait to help make a difference in someone else's life. I read an article online that talked about how singleness is a sacred opportunity. I believe this to be 100% completely true. I thought my last relationship would lead to something that would last forever, but God had other plans. And that is okay.

There is a quote that says, "For it is when we take our eyes off our own inadequacies and losses that we are truly able to be used for others." and how completely true is that. For some reason we tend to think about ourselves all the time. Our wants and needs. But how great is it when we forget about what we want and need and focus more on what other people's needs are. It's amazing.

Being single and being okay with it has opened up some opportunities for me. I know that I'm getting older, I'm reminded of it everyday. But I believe that God has that perfect someone for me, and he is out there, but God hasn't wanted us to meet yet. For whatever reason. I have had plenty of opportunity to move back to Indiana in the past 6 months, for some reason I feel like God is telling me to stay here. I'm not sure why, but I can't wait to find out. If God wanted me to be married right now, I know that He is more than capable of sending someone to me. :) For now, I'm content. I'm ready to be used for God's great works. If I meet someone along the way, then so be it. But I will only be committed to someone from now on, if I know for sure that it is God's will. I don't want to keep breaking off pieces of my heart and giving them away to people who don't truly care about me. I've done it in the past and it has gotten me nowhere.

I had the opportunity to attend REFUGE yesterday and it was nothing short of amazing. Such a small setting (because its fairly new) but the power of God in that room was sooo AWESOME! I'm glad I just happened to read my friend's status on Facebook or else I would have never known anything about it. I decided to look it up online and found someone who gave me some more info about it. It's amazing what God does. :)

I'm pretty stoked about life right now because God is sooo amazing! I can't wait to share His goodness with everyone!
