My Decision

Relationships and I don't mix. I haven't had many relationships, but the ones I have had all ended badly.  It has been a while since I was on the dating scene, and the whole thing is just a bit scary.  I have no idea where to meet people!  I have tried Match.com, SingleParentMeet.com, Plenty of Fish and ChristianSingles.  So far, I have had no luck!  It seems that most men are looking for skinny/athletically toned women who have never been married and who have no children.  This is obviously not me!

Today I came to a realization and made a decision.  In the past, I have prayed that I would find that special "someone."  The lessons at church have taught me that God wants us to be happy and that there is someone out there for each of us.  This is all well and good, but it seems to put me no closer to finding Mr. Right.  I have realized that I am not putting my full faith in God.  I am asking Him for help, but I am not sitting back and listening to what He has to say.  I pray, but then go out there and keep trying, all the while not having complete faith in Him.  My decision is to leave it in God's hands.  I am going to stop trying so hard and start listening and paying attention to what God has in store for me. 


  1. Good for you, Kim! I found Andrew when I had absolutely NO INTEREST in dating for the first time in my life - haha. Also - we met on ChristianCafe.com - if you ever decide to try another site - haha.

  2. Amen Sister! Seems that God is speaking to you and wants Him to be the first man in your life who will love you for being you. I went thru a transition to a deeper faith when I started dating Mike seriously after highschool. I had a strong urge to become a nun, there was such a sense of peace in me when attending church, and the fact that in the relationship with God there wouldn't be arguments, judgments and He always gives unconditional love. But after praying about it the urge to have children grew stronger and I knew I had to marry and have a family of my own. But that mindset to put God first will open doors in your life for sure!
