Is God Changing Your Plans?

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it’s the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – Proverbs 19:21 If you would have asked me in college what my plans were, I would have said something like this: I was going to graduate with a business degree, obtain a prestigious corporate job, meet a nice guy, get married, buy a house, have kids, and somewhere in the middle of all of this climb the corporate ladder to a 6-figure salary. I had big plans for my life! And in every way, I was headed in that direction. After college, I obtained a …

10 Things I Learned in 27 Years

Last week (March 8th to be exact) I turned 27! Since then, I’ve had time to reflect on my life and all that the Lord has done for me over these years. So I compiled a list (in no particular order) of the top 10 things I’ve learned over my 27 years: The best thing I could (or you could ever do) is to truly follow Christ – not halfway, not kind of sort of follow Him – but really follow Him. Doing our best to live a life worthy of the Gospel. Learn to forgive. Forgive those who have …

Single, Saved, and Still Wanting Sex: Is the Church Talking About Sex Enough?

Over the past week, I’ve been seeing this advertisement for an event entitled “Single, Saved, and Still Wanting Sex… I Still Want It: A Transparent Conversation About Being Holy and Horny”! Reactions to the event ranged from laughter, to being appalled that the church would even hold such an event, and to finally, the church is keeping it real! The event has yet to happen, but many already have their opinions and feel it is just too much – too vulgar, too direct – and just not something we need to talk about. Regardless of how you may feel about the event, I …

Dear Future Husband: I’m Not Waiting On You

Dear Future Husband, I’m sure you are worth the wait, but I’m not waiting on you! Of course, as a Christian woman, I will wait on you in terms of purity. Because the Bible says my body is a temple – not my own, bought with a price, therefore, I should honor God with it (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). And I will wait on your pursuit. Because he who finds a wife finds a good thing and receives favor from the Lord (Proverbs 18:22). But this letter is not about waiting in terms of purity or your pursuit. It’s about that …

Single on Valentine’s Day: 3 Things To Do Instead of Feeling Sorry for Yourself

Oh, Valentine’s Day! A day that can be a single’s least favorite day of the year. As you watch all your married and in relationship friends post pictures of their fancy dinners, bouquet of roses, and boxes of chocolates, it can be hard not to feel sorry for yourself – to not wonder why you’re still single and spending yet another Valentine’s Day alone! I’ve been there before! I was in a 5 1/2 year relationship with my high school sweetheart and that first Valentine’s Day as a single was dreadful! I spent that Valentine’s Day crying and listening to …

This Beauty Called Singleness

From one single woman to another, I really want to encourage you to hold on to the true beauty of singleness. I’m 27. A young woman in the Lord, just like many of you. And I understand the desire to want to be married and have a family. But I also understand the importance of waiting on the Lord to meet that desire. And the beauty and the freedom we have in our singleness with Christ. I didn’t always understand that, I spent countless years dealing with randoms (guys you know you will never marry and use to fill the …

Why BecomeLess?

BecomeLess.net was created with the following verse in mind: He must become greater; I must become less – John 3:30 In a world where many are encouraged to become more (more beautiful, more wealthy, more famous), Christ encourages us to do the exact opposite. Rather, He must become greater and we become less. BecomeLess.net was created to encourage people in their walk with the Lord and their pursuit to make Christ greater and themselves less.
