  4. Thank you for this blog. Especially the latest post about Holidays and Abuse. I believe God has had me learn more about domestic abuse in Christian families, so I woukd better recognize red flags and not be too easily duped again. Never was married, but I have met my share of ‘Mr. Super Christian’ men, who had very controlling, cruel and abusive characteristics. It seems most of the Christian bachelors I have met are this cold, intellectual control freak type – with an enormous desire for power and control (often including strong ambitions to climb the career ladder in a church hierarchy and gain recognition that way…)
    .. I do not want to paint all of those control freak men as abusers, but I am concerned, and apprehensive whenever I see the same pattern.
    Being single is tough, and feels like a failure at times, but I am grateful to my Heavenly Father for keeping me safe and sane, free from abusers.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I am so sorry that there seems to be so many control freaks who you are coming across in the church. I found the same issues when I was single with kids. Keep praying and working for the Kingdom. If God’s best for you is to be married, he will make it happen. If his best for you is not to be married then know that there is NO FAILURE in that and indeed you are blessed beyond measure. I am glad you are learning about abuse and red flags. It is so important to understand these things so you can keep yourself safe in relationships as well as in work etc. God Bless you!!

      1. Thank you for your kind words! Yes, the more I have seen in the church scene (not just in one church, but in general), the more I see the pattern.
        However, I do disagree with the (often heard) notion that ‘If God wants you to be married, He will make it happen’.Certainly it is all His grace that can bring it about – but we humans have an enormous responsibility in our choices as well. I’m in my 40’s now, have traveled, been on missions, met people all over the globe, and the older I get the less I believe that God somehow dictates what happens – this belief somehow is also the reason why many men are so passive and cannot relate to women as sisters in Christ (the expectation that God just makes the right woman to fall to his lap..)
        As years go by, I get to see more and more how important it is to seek the Lord in everything (as I have tried to do all my Christian life, with varying degrees of success…), to take steps of faith, and ultimately, the other person also has a free will – God’s will does not automatically happen (if it did, Jesus did not teach us to pray so strongly ‘Your will be done’) Many singles I have spoken with, face the same dilemma – what’s the ratio of God’s direction/human response, and what to do, when other people change their minds and walk away.
        I know God will comfort those who mourn, and that’s what heaven will be like – no grief. My prayer is also to be able to reflect His goodess while here on earth…
        Being divorced isn’t easy either, and I have been blessed with all the testimonies I have heard or read about God’s presence in the midst of divorce and struggle. I trust that He will comfort us singles as well and show the way to go, when we are looked down with suspicion and disdain (happens in churches..)..
