God's Plan for Me...

So for months I have delayed this brilliant idea that a fellow writer hit me up with.  While standing in midst of Disney World, they said "Becky, you really should write about dating and being a mom".....something that I am obviously no expert at.

My Gifts from God - he uses me to show them.  
At first, I laughed it off - who would want to read about my near nonexistent dating life?  Then as the months turned, I feared more, who would want to date me if I talked about dating, relationships, and marriage?  After all I seem to have failed every relationship I have entered - that is why I am single.

Then somewhere in the middle of those months God started putting people in life, people that were doubting relationships, confused about relationships, and struggling with the concepts of relationships....there is a odd confusion about love and lust.

As I begin searching for answers - often to contradict something they had said to me - I begin to realize that I have been hiding from God's calling for fear of humiliation.

A little over a month ago as I sat in church I listened to the pastor preach on God's plan for you - I have known God's plan for years - but I have been stuck in a rut.

In short words God has said to me "Becky, you know what is right from wrong, you know that true lasting relationships are real, and you know how to deliver this message - SO DO IT"

I never thought I would be called by God for anything - I mean who am I?  Then recently I was shown this....

 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen  Hebrews 13:21 New International Version (NIV)

Today begins my personal exposure to learning what love, dating, marriage, family relationships, and life is suppose to be......Ironically, I am not as modern as most would think, so I leave you with this.

 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.  For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.  Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.  Ephesians 5:22-33 New King James Version (NKJV)

Born a Female, Made a Feminist

Sunday over lunch I told my family “I am a feminist” and they laughed at me.   As I sat there, I remembered we have forgotten what a true fe...
