Going Stagg

"Going Stagg" seemed fitting for the title of this blog that I have been encouraged to write. Its a bit of an older term that we use to say when someone was going some where "alone" aka. not with a date. In the past couple months I have been on this roller coaster dealing with being in the season of singleness. Some days I am enjoying my independence and other days I'm on my knees praying that God would have my earthly knight and shining armor come knocking on my door at that instance.

I know I'm not the only girl who is dealing with this, who struggles with the reality of "always a bridesmaid never the bride". I do desire to be swept off my feet, to get giddy when I see this man, I desire to be chased, to be fought for, to experience a "toe popping" kiss, to have a partner to do life with, to have a man that I respect and I'm blown away that the Lord chose me to serve him. But until that season of life comes, what am I doing in this season of life that I am in?

I am guilty of this but I am so tiered of talking about being single and wallowing in it. I'm tiered of having the response of I'm learning how to be patient and waiting on the Lord. Waiting for what? My life doesn't start when I get married and have children(thats when chaos starts). The Lord has me in this season for how ever long He sees fit because He loves me and knows this is what is best for me. There are so many things that I've never done and want to do, things I want to learn how to do, places I want to see, cultures I want to experience, books I want to read, goals I want to achieve so what am I waiting for? Why am I not doing those things and wishing away this season of freedom?

So I am starting this blog as an outlet to share about that singleness really is a gift from the Lord and its time that I receive this gift with gratitude and enjoy every minute of it!

  3. Another book for you...regarding this season of singleness, Knight & Shining Armor - P.B. Wilson - really helped me embrace my season of singleness and focus on preparing myself and making myself stronger before marriage, instead of focusing on the fact that I'm not in relationship! (Amanda B. has read it too!)

  4. Ebony thanks for that book recommendation! I will for sure have to check it out!
