It was like an eye opening alarm went off in my mind 9 years after ending that toxic relationship and coming to know who I was in God. What He called me to be and that His love never failed me….. I just failed to see the love He had and still has for me.
It wasn’t until I truly embraced my singleness and started walking in purpose, on purpose, for a purpose that God spoke to me and told me that He hadn’t forgotten about me.
My best friend met her husband on Christian Mingle and she said “Lez, I think you should give it a try.” So I did. There were several lessons that I learned being on that site.
1. Many people have their own definition of what being a Christian is.
2. We all are a work in progress.
3. God’s timing, is not my own and patience truly is a virtue.
I met this amazing guy on Christian Mingle in 2010. Well it depends on who tells the story…. I say one website. He says another one. Needless to say, we had the exact same profile on both of the sites. So since this is my blog, and I am telling the story, I say Christian Mingle.lol.
We instantly talked and talked and talked for hours and hours every day. He was a man who I could be Lezlie with no mask… no make up… no filter… just me. He celebrated me and never forgot anything that I told him. Some time passed and our conversations lessened and we both sought relationships elsewhere but always remained friends.
At a very low time in my life my buddy called me. It was as if he could feel my pain over 1400 miles away. When I answered the phone he asked what’s the matter. So I told him everything. The ugly. … the uglier….. and the ugliest of all. And in the sweetest most caring voice I have ever heard in my life his response was “And God still loves you.” That was all I needed to hear. At that time in my life, I thought God didn’t love me due to my poor choices and that I was unforgivable. But my buddy reminded me otherwise and the healing began.
I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Have any of you ever been at a point in your life where you thought God forgot about you or didn’t love you? I would love for you to share your story with me.
