The “I Wanna Be” Syndrome

“Everyone I know is getting married or engaged!”
“I sure wish I had a “SPECIAL” friendship like…”
“I am already 19 (or 22 or 35) and I don’t even have a serious boyfriend or suitor!”
“I thought for SURE I’d be married right after graduating High School!”
“Maybe I should try E-Harmony or something so I can figure out where my friends are finding all these spouses!”

Dear Sisters in Christ,

Each spring and summer season seems to bring a bevy of engagements and weddings among our friends and acquaintances. While we rejoice with our friends we can find ourselves growing discouraged and discontented. Some of us may even be tempted to ditch the “wait-upon-the-Lord” program in favor of some “Instant Fix” sales pitch. I am deeply concerned by the prevalent: “Woe is me, I’m not married and I better do something about it!” attitude among Christian young ladies. When we respond in this way we are demonstrating that our hearts are discontented with God’s sovereign will and purpose for our lives! The purpose of this note is to encourage the unmarried woman to wait patiently on her God, with contentment and joy. “For godliness with contentment is great gain…” (1 Timothy 6:6) Continue reading “The “I Wanna Be” Syndrome”

New Leaf Press Book Giveaway!

New Leaf Press recently sent me a review copy of their new edition of  Mornings & Evenings by Charles H. Spurgeon. This is a marvelous devotional with short, meaty reads for the start and end of your day. Better still, this new printing is accompanied by a very nice blank journal for your own devotional notes, favorite Bible verses, and more. I’ve got the book on my bedside table and have enjoyed rediscovering this excellent devotional tool from one of the most famous Reformed preachers of the 19th century. Spurgeon’s words still ring true and are powerfully relevant for us today. Mornings & Evenings is an ideal book for busy moms, providing a launching pad for breakfast and evening devotional discussions with children. I can already see this new copy will become as well-thumbed and enjoyed as the one my parents gave me when I was married 14 years ago.
