    God is Not Finished with Your Story

    Monday, December 14, 2020

    God is not finished with your story.


    Sometimes big life events, our own choices, or another person’s decisions leave us feeling like life is over. God can’t work anymore. God can’t redeem this mess. We find ourselves at the bottom - after a divorce, a breakup, a loss of a loved one, the abortion.


    I’m sure Moses, after he killed a man and fled to the desert for 20 years, thought that God was finished with him and could never use a murderer. He later went on to lead a nation to freedom and to a homeland.


    I’m sure Joseph - after standing up for purity and righteousness, being lied about, and thrown into prison - wondered if he should’ve gone the easy route. Why was he punished for choosing good? He later went on to become a ruler and to save two nations from famine.


    I’m sure the woman at the well, chasing men for satisfaction, thought she was too far gone with her choices. How could God use an adulteress? She later went on to evangelize her entire town.


    I don’t know where you find yourself today, but your story is far from over. Philippians 1:6 says “that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”  If you are in Him, He is sanctifying you and making you look more like Christ. Nothing separates us from the love of God. You are loved by our Father. He is a good Author who can take twists and turns and smooth them out into a 𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓾𝓽𝓲𝓯𝓾𝓵𝓵𝔂 𝓢𝓬𝓻𝓲𝓹𝓽𝓮𝓭 story.


    The best is yet to come, my friend. Keep trusting. Keep walking in His faithfulness. And keep reading the story of God’s goodness in your life.


    Beautifully Scripted Book Release

    Friday, December 11, 2020

     


    Guess what!? I just released my new book, Beautifully Scripted! I am SO EXCITED! God led me to write this book about singleness, and I am trusting He will use it for His glory. It all started several years ago when I found myself needing encouragement in my singleness journey. All the books I found were either written by a married man about the theology of singleness, written by a married woman who had already found her special someone, or was solely focused on finding the right man. All of these books have a place and are good. However, I longed for a book written by a single woman who wasn't on "the other side" but was right in this season with me. So God called me to be that person.

    Beautifully Scripted is written to encourage women currently in the season of singleness: how to find your identity in Christ and not in your relationship status, how to have FUN, wisdom for dating, practical advice, and much more. (If you are married, there is a chapter dedicated to how to encourage the single women in your life. Also, it helps you understand the struggles of this season that many of your friends might find themselves in.)

    Here is the description on the back:

    I knew what my life was going to look like. It felt like reading from a script. Everyone around me whispered the lines for the next scene. There was safety and surety. I loved knowing what was to happen next. However, the day came when it seemed as though my life had “gone off script.” Wasn’t marriage supposed to follow college? Where was the man I was supposed to meet? I had always been told it would happen. But instead of entering a marriage scene, I found myself feeling misplaced in a scene of singleness. Being single was never what I wanted. Do I have the right script?

    It took years to realize that my script — though different than I imagined — was written just for me. I have a grand part to play. When I started to listen to the Script Writer for my lines and direction, I began to understand that He gave me a part in a story greater than I could ever have dreamed.

    Maybe you have felt or currently feel the same way — confused, overlooked, bitter, discontent — because singleness was not the part you wanted. The truth is that the Author of your script lovingly penned this part for you. Your life is Beautifully Scripted by His hand. The question is — are you ready to accept this role and gracefully live out your season of singleness?

    Beautifully Scripted is now available on Amazon for $12.99 on paperback or $9.99 on Kindle. You can order a copy here. When you get a copy, please share what you are learning! Tag me on Facebook, on Instagram at @singledoutforhim, or shoot me an email at singledout4him@gmail.com. I'd love to hear how God has used Beautifully Scripted to encourage you. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

    You are seen. You are cared for. You are loved.
