The below is a direct entry from my personal journal. The Holy Spirit has prompted me to share glimpses into my life and my relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. May these words inspire you to grow deeper in love with your faith journey, remembering that no journey is perfect and every person's path is different. I can only share mine, and I'm sharing the unfiltered version. I pray that you receive what you need and can see God's love in your life as I share His love in mine - through the great times and challenging times. Feel free to share your thoughts and if anything came through for you in the comments. Many blessings and love to you.

I'm back on the dating apps - not because I doubt God and what he's shown me, but because I feel like I need to let go and surrender more. I need to make sure I'm really allowing myself to let go, trust, and just be.
This is the first holiday season where I don't feel sad or lonely. I actually feel quite at ease. This is probably because I really do feel so solid in my relationship with God. I trust His plan and want what He wants for me.
I am positive this is my last Christmas season single, so I'm enjoying it very much. I have moments of a dip in mood, but that's all it is. God has my back. He is my number one "man" and love. Through Him, I am satisfied. Through Him, I have peace, joy, love, and all I need. It feels so foreign, but genuinely so good to write these words and actually mean them and feel them instead of writing them down as a form of willing them to be real.
God, thank you. Thank you for everything - all the love, support, blessings, guidance, messages, peace, and beyond. I am forever grateful to truly be surrendered to Your will. Thank you for loving me and choosing me back. I love you.
