In November, I had the privilege of sharing my testimony at church. I thought, as I reflect on everything God has done for me in 2012, that I’d share it with you here over the next few days. Happy New Year, friends.
You’re 29. Jesus is leading you to do things in His strength you never thought you could. You buy a house at auction, and move it across a county. You travel to Europe by yourself. You build a wonderful network of loved ones across the country, across the world. You lean hard on Jesus during the tough times.
You tell men who’ve had too much to drink at parties that you’re a virgin, and watch their responses. It’s usually something along the lines of, “But you’re good-looking!” You laugh, and tell them it’s a choice – not a lack of opportunity. But you sometimes doubt your own worth, your own desirability. You date men occasionally, and get confident enough in yourself and in your God to let them go when they aren’t right for you. You get lonely sometimes, but you lean hard on Jesus. He holds you up.
