It's been awhile since I've written about singleness--part of it is because I haven't felt like anything has really changed and partially because I like to think of it as the elephant in the room, err, blog.

I never really thought about it as such, but I always hesitate to share about it because most of my struggles are cyclical and tend to come and go. So a lot of the feelings I've had and written about, have already been written about and shared.

But then that little voice that reminds me that this is MY blog, MY life, MY story--and it's worth sharing. 

Because there will be times when people skip over your blog posts and there will be times when your words are repetitive or long. But that doesn't mean it's any less of a story. And a story that's not worth sharing.

So am I still struggling with singleness? Yes, yes, and yes.

My relationship status hasn't changed, my worries haven't changed, and my dreams haven't changed, either. 

And the more I think about singleness and the more I pray and pour tears over it, the more I realize that it's okay to have these feelings. It's okay to want a relationship.

But I need to put my wants for Jesus higher because only He can fulfill.

So if you're hurting today, over a broken relationship, a fight you just had with a loved one, or because your dreams just haven't come to fruition as you would like, know that you're not alone. And that these feelings are valid.

But God's love is even truer than those feelings. 

And that's what I'm clinging to today.
