Who Am I?

I’ve reached a point in my life where I have no control over what happens next. I know I want to be married and I want to have children, but I have no idea when it’s going to happen and, to be honest, that used to make me anxious.

Growing up, I learned to depend on God and I had always blindly trusted Him. But, as I get older, there are moments when the blind faith is hard.

So, what can I do about that?

I pray, read my bible, oh, and I blog.

It started out with Instagram, jotting down my feelings and thoughts. But because I talk a lot (a lot, a lot) the thoughts turned into essays. So, I needed another outlet to just share my thoughts on life.

So, I turned to blogging.

And it has been one of my best decisions.

  1. How would you know that your guy is "The One"? God will tell me and God will tell him. I'm not trying to figure it out anymore. It really makes my heart hurt.
  2. Will you continue to write Dear Future Him when you finally meet "The One"? Yes! Maybe? I don't know. But, that's neither here nor there. Right now, it's all mine.
  3. What are you looking for in a guy? I expect a lot because I bring a lot. All in all, I want him to love and obey God, be my best friend and have the heart to help others. I'll write a blog and link it here one day.
  4. Who inspires you? My parents are my inspiration. They have been married for 41 (and counting) years and they are still in love.
  5. Where did you learn to have faith? My parents taught me about God when I was young. They read stories to me and explained who God was. I've even seen miracles happen because of my faith. I remember hearing that we would have a tornado when I was 7 years old. I remember going into my bedroom and praying to God that He would allow the tornado to pass over my city and it DID! Now, that may not seem like a lot to you but to a 7 year old...that was a miracle! That was a game changer for me because I asked God and I just believed He would protect me. Unfortunately, I got older and my faith diminished a little. I was praying prayers and I didn't see the results as fast as I did when I was 7. It was discouraging and the more I learned about God I realized that He wasn't giving me what I asked for because it wouldn't have been beneficial to my growth. So, that changed faith for me again. It's been a growing process for me. Faith is a journey with God.
  6. If you don't meet Dear Future Him will you be sad? Maybe, but honestly I loving my single life and I have gained so much clarity about me. So, of course, I will be sad....but it doesn't stop me from living my best life. I will continue to love on me - intentionally. Hopefully he comes, but I'm not twiddling my thumbs waiting for him. I'm living my life. Oh what a wonderful life it is!
