LONELINESS: BANE OF THE CHRISTIAN SINGLE
p>
It’s no question I battle with loneliness.  I am just on of many millions that feels isolated and alone on a planet of billions of people. I pray against it, try to learn more about the root cause of loneliness and boldly stand on God’s word regarding the issue.   This is a great study to have if you battle with the same prison of loneliness. As it has lifted me up– so I hope it does for you…..       LONELINESS: BANE OF THE CHRISTIAN SINGLE by Dr. Ken Matto The subject of this study is loneliness. It is really amazing in a world of 6 billion people that loneliness can be so pandemic. I want to deal with some symptoms and causes of...

conversations about the “M” word ….

conversations about the “M” word ….
p>conversations about the “M” word – is relentless love attainable on this Earth? My back is starting to peel a bit, but my tan from Cabo is still going strong.  That trip was so amazing.  To see my best friend, marry her best friend, really got my heart and head stirring. And even today…a week of being home, I can not stop trying to understand what happened to my heart while I was there.   To be single for so long, and be at this age, and to go thru the awkward relationships I have had in the past (me being the awkward piece) I have concluded for the last few years that the M word, “Marriage” really might not be for me…...

RIP to my favorite teacher and coach….

RIP to my favorite teacher and coach….
p>  — I remember it like it was yesterday…. sitting in his History class, entranced with the way he told stories.  I could almost envision it all coming to life with his great chalk drawings and his amazing story-telling.  I almost forgot that I was learning. Besides being a great teacher, I had a special opportunity to get to know him a little bit more….   Jr High was so so so many years ago…whew– almost 16 years ago? wow. But, no matter how many years pass by, the impact this one teacher had on my life will never fade away.   Playing basketball my 8th grade year was a challenge, I had a crappy coach who only played her...

Seduction… He is Seducing me.. but its not what you may think.
p>Seduction… when you read that word… what sort of feeling does it give you? or image? does it only have a sexual connotation? a negative angle? Do you think of Scandal? or… Do you think of God’s character? weird huh?   —-   I wanted to describe the last few days and this crazy thing that God is doing in me… but the only word I could find to describe it, was …”seduction..”   but it just didn’t feel right to use that word. it feels weird to put the word “seduction” and “God” in the same sentence, right? – I looked up the definition just to see if there may be a better...

I am still here….beat up but not broken…

I am still here….beat up but not broken…
p>Wow. Have you ever been in such a flurry of emotions that your ability to communicate effectively, your desire to create and your focus somehow disappears. I have been so quiet lately… Not writing… not sketching… not creating new product… not being “me.”   Its now June.  And I have yet to land that next career move. My patience is wearing thin…my confidence is wavering…. i feel beat up I knew in April when I was laid off, that this process would be a tedious,  roller coaster of hope and discouragment.  That even though I have a big faith in a Mighty provision and a great confidence in my abilities, the job market is...

Running my first half marathon… just a few days away and…
p>I am nervous! It’s so crazy! I have been training for a while now. But not training at 100%. My body has been tired and I have been going through such a crazy time in my life. I was laid off from my job on April 1 and I have been spending day in and day out seeking jobs and applying. As each day passes, and I still have not found my next career adventure, I have to check in… and really say it out loud until my heart believes it…”I trust You God.”… force myself to let go of the control… but I still have a hard time staying focused on training. The focus on getting a new FT marketing gig, somewhere in this country, is wearing on...
