Lead a Life Worthy of Your Calling: The Old Has Gone

With a new year upon us and quickly becoming history, how do we make it more "successful" than past ones? How do we accomplish those things we want and strive to do what we are called to do? And how do we "deal with" the inevitability of hopes and dreams which don't come to fruition this year?

Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Rested

Because I can spend as much time on things as I want, I can also become overly engrossed to the point of not taking the time to rest. I can easily become "busy" without allowing God to give me perspective on what I am doing—even if the "doing" is for him.

The Single Life: In Case of Emergency

"Who should we contact in case of an emergency?" That's a good question. My parents are both deceased, as is my only sibling. Sure, I have friends, but it seems like an imposition to saddle them with that responsibility without at least discussing it first. So what's a single girl to do?

The Relational Economy: Deficit Living – Part 3

In truth, none of us operates at a deficit—we just live that way. We are not poor, it just feels that way. "I pray … that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints …expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus."

Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Understood Loss

What is God telling you about yourself in regards to loss? Thank you, Lord, that through understanding loss you created a bridge to reach us so that one day we will spend eternity with you in heaven where there is no loss.

Turn Your Disappointments into a Miracle

We often think we know what is best for our lives and put pressure on ourselves to "make it happen," and when our expectations fall short we become disappointed. However, if we look beyond ourselves and are willing to be used by God, we may be surprised at the miracles we may see.

What a Woman Brings to Marriage

The Proverbs 31 woman is great and all. But the ultimate example who should inform what I bring to marriage is Christ. He modeled so well the type of intangibles that I hope to one day bring to a union with my future husband.

No Man Is an Island

If you are missing a parental figure or mentor in your life—seek someone willing to fill that role. If you don't have a friend—go and be that friend to someone else. If you feel you are the only one on your island—start walking because there are many others who share your feelings.

This month in "He Said-She Said," a reader writes: "I meet a lot of women in particular who are fixated it seems on having 'just friends' relationships. What's that all about?" See how "he" and "she" have answered in response.

The Relational Economy: Deficit Living - Part 2

The truth is that this side of heaven we all live with a deficit. We all walk with a limp that testifies to sin in the world—that all is not as it should be. We are not who we should be, could be, or will be and this has nothing to do with our relational status.

Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Was Grateful

As a single adult, I get so focused on the future that I forget what God has given me now. Jesus lived so much of the lives that we live today as single adults. So how was he grateful for where God had him, in his singleness? And, am I grateful as well?

The Single Life: Table for One

You're hungry, but your cupboards could pass for Old Mother Hubbard's so cooking is out. What you really want is a delicious meal served by someone else. That's what restaurants are for, right? Ah, but you don't have anyone to go to dinner with you. Now what do you do?

The Relational Economy: Deficit Living - Part 1

Sometimes the thought of losing again is just too much to bear. You may know something is not profitable, but in your deficit living just want anything to work out. You may just want to win, so you fight well beyond the point of good sense until the blisters form on your heart.

Don't Let Your Fears Lead to a Life Filled with Regrets

Don't allow your fears or doubts to rob you from your heart's desire. Don't end up like the other disciples, who cowered in the boat and followed the group. Get up, take a step out and trust God like your life depended upon it and like there is no tomorrow.

He Said-She Said: A Past History of Homosexuality

For five years a woman in her mid-40s has been dating a pastor who has a past history of homosexuality, but now she is "frozen" in her tracks. "Do I continue the relationship or do I avoid the risk?" See what "he" and "she" have said in response.

One Wife or None? Singles as Elders

"Husband of one wife." That's how most translations of the Bible render the Greek phrase from 1 Timothy 3:2, where the apostle Paul describes prerequisites for being a church elder. But what biblical principle did Paul really want to convey with these three words?

The Relational Economy: Identity Theft

If the process of relational discovery costs you your soul, it is too much. You must believe with a stubborn confidence that the you God has made, and is making, is beautiful. You must believe this despite what the failures might tell you. You must believe this despite words to the contrary.

The Single Life: Bible Study, Solo Style

If you choose to study the Bible alone, you get to make all the decisions. What to study, when, where, even why is up to you. The first—and probably the biggest—decision is what to study. Pray for guidance, then consider this: do you want to go with a teacher, a topic, or a territory?
