Today, Eleisha speaks to us about doing our single season well, she shares a poem she wrote about her current season, and she speaks to us about her job as a storyteller.
Inspiring biblical passage of the moment: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
This verse has kept me from overthinking and becoming anxious about the uncertainties of life. So often, we want to figure everything out in the moment and have our lives planned in every area, but sometimes, the best and most freeing thing to do is let go and rest knowing God has the best in store for you and His timing is perfect.
Spiritual growth focus at the moment: The word that I truly believe God has be focused on is TRUST. For me it means fully surrendering and submitting my thoughts, plans and life to Him on a daily basis and teaming with Him as he continues to develop character within me whilst filling me with inner peace and strength. When and if I encounter storms down the road, I will stand strong because if you are deeply rooted in His truth, you will not be shaken. He wants us to go to him so we can give to others from a full tank and a place of overflow. I’m learning the importance of digging a deep well by spending more intentional time throughout the day, praying continually in order to be in constant connection with God. It’s helping me stay grounded and centered in Him so that I won’t be swayed by anyone or anything else that could take His place – because let’s face it, there are so may distractions and counterfeits to His goodness, and it’s our job to be aware of the lies and distractions around us. There is so much vying for our time and attention, don’t come to God with the very last announce of energy and time when your day has ended to spend time with him.
“I love getting the chance to be the salt and light, especially when so many stories require interviewing people from all walks of life, which most of the time is during the most dramatic moments of their lives.”
Not Yet Married by Marshall Segal. WOW – now this is one of the best books I’ve read on the importance of being single and not rushing into dating and marriage. Now, ladies I know that it’s a tricky and trying season being single. It highlights that in our single years we have the best opportunity to learn and understand that God is speaking identity over us that we can step into. He does this by speaking truth into our lives that becomes our mantra that we live by. We become a new creation, our worth is found in Him. Are we desiring a man/woman before first desiring God?
