singleness

Someone recently asked me “can you see yourself marrying me?”… and for some reason I had no idea how to answer that. Not because I didn’t want to marry him, but because for a split second I wondered why marriage was on the cards before a relationship had even begun. Except that’s precisely the mindset […]

I remember being over-familiar with the opposite sex whilst in a relationship and, understandably, my significant other wasn’t too impressed. In a later relationship, I happened to be on the receiving end and it made me feel uneasy. In both cases, neither of us had done anything particularly bad. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop the other […]

A while ago, a friend of mine and I were talking  and she mentioned the fact that singleness is always viewed as a temporary stop. Yes, people are encouraged to enjoy this ‘season’ but it’s meant to be just that: a season. Those who have the ‘misfortune’ of languishing in it are invariably pitied. “What […]

Tokens of Love by Brandon and Sheretta Taylor was one of my favourite reads from 2019! I really enjoyed journeying through the love stories of the Bible. I don’t usually read devotionals, but I’ve been blessed by the YouTube ministry of this couple and I wanted to read what God had put on their heart. […]

My friend and I always find it funny that guys actually thought we were attractive during puberty i.e. before the ‘glow up.’ Astonishingly, they did. So much so that we ended up in relationships. However, the sixteen-year-old version of me certainly had no business being anyone’s girlfriend… “Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, not to […]

Almost everyone is familiar with The Proverbs 31 Woman – but what’s the male equivalent? In all my years of churchgoing, I can’t say I’ve ever heard men encouraged to embody a specific passage in the way women are. Yes, the Proverbs 31 characteristics are also applicable to men; however, when you’re selecting a potential […]

I was at a wedding recently and a guy used this line on me: “I’m trying to find Mary so that we can make Jesus. Are you Mary?” Whilst I applaud him for shooting his shot, I really hope that’s not a line he’ll be reusing. Nevertheless, I assume Mary was a metaphor for the […]

I once entered a relationship with the conviction that it was undeniably God’s will. I had prayed for a sign, and as far I could tell, He delivered. We didn’t get married. Did God get it wrong? Did I misinterpret the sign? “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your […]

Social Media Question #2: “Personality vs Love Languages. Is there a difference between these two? Do they go hand in hand? How important are they? Do they help build better relationships?” “Afterward it happened that he loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.” (Judges 16:4) In Context The Bible is unclear about […]

I attended an evangelism school in my teens and I remember one of the speakers encouraging us to “dedicate our 20s to the Lord.” I wasn’t keen. I had milestones I wanted to reach and things I wanted to do. Serving God actively could fit in later. “I want you to be free from the […]
