just you

i cannot express to you how important alone time is. alone time as far as – putting your phone down, driving by yourself, shopping for yourself, spending time with the Lord, focusing on yourself, turning social off, and just having one on one time with yourself and with God.

now, i couldn’t be telling you guys this if i haven’t done it myself. and i have, recently, for the past two months. really just focusing on myself and who God is calling me to be. to say the least, it has been the best moments of my life. it has grown me so much, taught me so much, and has changed me. during this time, my mom bought my flowers for when i was having a bad day. i was expecting them to die in at least a week, because all flowers do, but they are currently 4 weeks old. yep, FOUR WEEKS. and they are looking good as new. i put water in them when needed, but thats it. and for the first time – it reminded me of something.

you are the flowers. and God is the water. if you continue to FILL yourself with His word and His presence, you will continue to bloom, you will continue to live, and you will continue to be beautiful. i think the Lord used this specific comparing situation for a reason. this season of alone time, He has continued to just blossom me. He has continued to water me. and just like me, my flowers are going four weeks strong. this is a reminder to me, that i want to share with you, that He is going to continue to water you as long as you let Him.

Psalm 46:10 – Be still and know that I am God. Be still, be quiet, listen, remind yourself of who He is and what He can do. close your mouth and open your heart. sit quiet, sit in silence, focus on Him, and allow majestic things to happen in your life.

you will find yourself, you will find God, and you will find joy in time alone. it probably sounds weird and cliche, but seriously. now, you are not going to learn or grow if you are not putting any effort into it. you cannot expect the Lord to grow you and move in you if you are not allowing Him to. you can’t put a limit or time on Him – you can’t tell Him how you want something – and you can’t override His purposes. during this time, you have to open your heart to Him and allow Him to make changes in you. i know, we don’t like changes, but they are GOOD changes!! changes that only our God can do.

alone time gives you the time to solely focus on Him. distractions away, just you and God. meditate on His word, His miracles, His promises, just GOD! you will grow in knowledge, grow in your faith, and grow in your relationship with Him.

to my single peeps – don’t feel discouraged. don’t feel like the man/woman you’re looking for isn’t appearing. don’t feel like you need to settle just because. don’t long for that attention from a man/woman. use this time, use this time to find yourself, and allow God to mold you. i can promise that the Lord is shaping and getting the man/woman He has for you ready. ready because you deserve the best, you deserve someone who will put you first, and someone that you don’t need to “fix”. friends, i’m in this boat with you and i am loving the single life. the life where it’s about me and it’s about God. the life where i can grow individually and prepare myself for what the Lord has in store. and i can only hope and pray you use this time for yourself, don’t throw yourself out there, and don’t settle.

to my gals who are taken – just because you are in a relationship doesn’t mean you cannot have alone time. i would hope your boyfriend/fiance/husband/girlfriend/wife would understand that your personal mental and emotional health is important. i would hope he/she would understand that your relationship with God comes first. yes – you might be in a relationship, but time to yourself is still important. you still need to grow individually and find yourself. i’ve been in this boat, too. and i lost myself in the midst of my relationship. i didn’t know who i was without B. i lost sight of what i deserved. i lost sight of God. but months later, i am completely in awe in who the Lord is shaping me to be, and turning me into. it is SOOO important to know this, and i have learned this. hint, why i am sharing with you. so, to my taken friends-  don’t lose sight of yourself, don’t settle, have alone time with yourself, but more importantly, with God.

the feelings and emotions i have been feeling is something i want and desire for you to feel. i cannot keep this quiet or to myself because everyone deserves this, God deserves this.

don’t be afraid or discouraged to have alone time. find yourself. bloom into that flower. allow God to water you. turn your eyes upon Jesus.

Hi sunshine!!
I stared this blog in about January of 2016 to share His Word in a creative way. I was praying one night, and it kind of just came onto my heart.

I pray that The Lord may speak to you through me, I can only hope I can help you in your relationship with Christ.
