    I don't know why, but I just felt led to write in this thread tonight: I WILL be a wife and mother in the name of Jesus. I know He placed that desire on my heart and He WILL fulfill it at the appointed time. I thank Him in advance for this blessing. Amen and amen.

    It's funny, I went looking for this thread after a thought just a minute ago. I'm kinda mad at G-d about something else and then the thought occurs to me, "You're here...maybe He won't move you yet because He wants you to meet your husband, dummy!" :giggle:

    Well, maybe.

    I need to lay my head here for awhile. This has been such a tough emotional and extremely lonely year for me. I hope and pray that things will get better for me moving forward. I don't want to be by myself anymore.

    I pray he will take the desire from my heart. I am struggling so much right now in my faith- feeling sidelined by God. I know he is there, I dont believe i've been forgotten, just have a feeling of being placed on the back burner for 20 years. If it is not his will that I be married, why have I always longed to be?

    Please read this: https://www.theevangelista.com/faith/2017/8/6/the-waiting-is-the-cross-edel-gathering-2017

    "I remember practically bursting into tears when I read that, because it resonated so powerfully with me at a time in my life (I was 31 and still very single) where I wondered if I would ever get married. And I think her mother's insight is a powerful one: the waiting is the cross. The not-knowing is the cross. "

    I would like to partner up again in marriage, but sometimes feel guilty as some in my circle have never even had so much as a gentleman friend. I had a great godly marriage of almost two years after waiting for 20 plus years until his decease in 2012. Singleness is not my ministry I minister better as a helper team player but God knows, " A faithful man who can find?" KJV. ....But God.

    Her story has blessed me SO much. She went from an emotional mess to meeting her husband, getting engaged and married in a year. They are now expecting. Ladies, let's not lose hope. God has a plan. His timing is perfect even if it doesn't feel perfect. He will not abandon us.

    Ladies for those of you who are praying and yearning for a husband you are doing the right thing by asking God but also pray for your own preparation. I've been married for almost 3 years and let me say I'm blessed with an amazing husband but marriage is hard work. Meaning you no longer have to care for yourself you have another person you have to cater to. Even after a long day of work I'd love to go home and sleep or relax and watch tv but I have to cook, clean take over the baby etc. at times you will feel exhausted. Grateful my husband can cook, clean and do laundry so if I can't he will do it but I always feel the pressure as a wife I need to stay on top of things. I say all of this because not only should you pray for the husband but pray to be a strong and dutiful wife. It's a lot of work to raise a family. It's the best feeling in the world loooking at my husband and child knowing that's my legacy I'm building but I was ready. Be ready for what you're praying God for.

    Another amazing blog post: https://www.theevangelista.com/faith/2017/8/18/his-yoke-is-well-fitting

    "A couple of years ago, a blog post by a former spiritual director of mine, Msgr. Charles Pope, helped me understand Jesus’ words in a new way:

    'Jesus says that the cross He has for us is “easy.” The Greek word χρηστὸς (chrestos) is better translated as “well-fitting,” “suitable,” or even “useful.” The Lord is saying that the yoke He has for us is suited to us; it is well-fitting; it has been carefully chosen so as to be useful for us. God knows that we need some crosses in order to grow and He knows what they are. He also knows what we can bear and what we are ready for. Yes, His yoke for us is well-fitting.'

    Mind. Blown. His yoke is well-fitting. It was designed for me, which means that with God's grace, its weight won't crush me. His yoke is well-fitting. Only the crosses Jesus asks me to carry will be well-fitted to me."
