Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. Psalm 127:1

If I have these three relationships at the top of my priority list, then my job will be more fulfilling, my friendships will be more loving and my service to others will be more lasting.
No spouse? No children? No problem. With no spouse or children vying for your time and attention, you are blessed with the extra time to devote to what the Lord has led you to. The high calling of serving while single is nothing to take for granted or be ashamed of. On the contrary, it’s a humbling state of giftedness and love.
Having been single for most of my adult life prior to meeting and marrying the man of my dreams, I learned I was able to serve the Lord in so many other ways. Though I am now happily married, God still holds the number one spot in my heart; my time is just divided differently.
My heart is eager to give more freely when I ask the Lord of all creation to lead my every step. When I go before the throne of grace and lay my life with all of its ups and downs at His feet, then I am at peace. He alone can and will lead me to much more loving relationships with those He has called me to nurture and love.

In His embrace,
