Good day WordPress Fam
I pray that God continues to strengthen and keep you throughout summer 2021. Sooo today is another post dedicated to the ‘chronicles of a christian single lady occasionally featuring some of her friends’.
Today I desire to remind us all of the importance of learning to come to terms with reality! Sometimes accepting the truth hurts, but the pain of accepting reality is nothing in comparison to encountering avoidable heartbreak (well in my eyes). Ladies and Gents I want to encourage you not to allow feelings of disappointment to consume your soul because of a ‘could’ve been’ relationship!
For example if you notice communication beginning to dwindle as soon as you mention your love for God, honey it’s time to let that person go. It’s not you, rather it’s their hate/distaste/lack of interest towards the things of God! In fact what we should be doing is thanking God for delivering us from potential heartbreak, as well as keeping us from possible pain, hurt, or even abuse. In everything give thanks, as painful as rejection may be at the time, God’s plans for our lives are GLORIOUS. So we should be grateful that the indwelling of the Holy Spirit drives away individuals who would harm us if given the opportunity. God’s presence has the power to remove the right people (toxic persons) from our life.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 ~ Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Jeremiah 29:11 ~ “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
[Side-note: In some circumstances it may be a case where it’s not the right time for you to be in a relationship with a specific person. It’s not that you’re both bad people, it may be that you’re both still growing and will end up destroying each other if you start courting prematurely!]
To summarise if someone ghosts you, don’t be too disappointed, try and look on the bright side of life. Also I forgot to mention in the previous post that if you encounter abuse within courtship, flee. Abusive behaviour is absolutely unacceptable. The bible warns us not to befriend angry people for our own good!
Proverbs 22:24 ~ Don’t befriend angry people or associate with hot-tempered people.
Ghosting: The shut down/ceasing of communication with someone without notice.
Sending love and blessings your way.

James 1:2-4 ~ “Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”
