We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Man Cave “Relationships” Panel at the Brooklyn Tabernacle
Living single isn’t so easy. I shared my thoughts and experiences as a single Christian living in NY. Here’s what I said about being single and dating in my 30s: 1️⃣ Lists: “I think lists are a good thing. They are simply a statement of your values and the qualities you want in a partner. But over time, with maturity, your list should change. I went from having a list filled with physical attributes and material things to one filled with character traits.” #maturity 2️⃣ Marriage: “It’s a goal for sure but it’s not my only one. Being healthy, whole, and mature while pursuing God-ordained goals is my highest priority.” #goals 3️⃣ Being pursued: “I know what it feels like to be in a space or a season when no one is asking you out. You can feel unworthy, unattractive or start believing some other lie about yourself. Reflecting on it now, I wasn’t overlooked or undervalued, I was hidden.” [Psalm 119:114]
So glad that this encouraged you, Marcia!! Thanks so much!
