Being Single and Making a Difference
- Tuesday, June 12, 2012
So you might be asking, "Kris, did you ever get to Europe?" Well, I did make it England with my boyfriend for a couple of weeks during that time we were living together. We did all the touristy things, ate all the amazing food and met some great people. Then I spent the next ten years paying off the debt. But today, I am so happy to tell you that God is taking me back to the U.K.—his way. I was recently asked to come to London on tour with my new book, Jesus, Single Like Me. I will also be working with a lady in London on setting up a similar singles ministry that I lead here in the States—one in which we teach singles how to fish versus just giving them fish. I am praying England will only be the start of reaching all of Europe for Christ, single by single.
Join me in prayer for all singles, here in the U.S. and in the world—to realize their singleness is loved, valued and embraced by God to do wonderful and marvelous things for him. Pray that they will not only know this but believe it by living their lives in contentment with where God has them until he moves them somewhere else. Singleness has power. Just ask Jesus.
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me (2 Corinthians 12:9).
