I knew what I wanted.  I was very clear and direct with my prayer. “God, I’m ready to start dating to find my wife.”  While this prayer might not seem like big deal to someone else, it was HUGE for me. At that point in my life, I was trying to dig myself out of a hole.

Song: All I need is you, All I need is you, All I need is you oh my God! -Erica Campbell Reject-  A. to refuse to believe, accept, consider, or submit to something/someone. To refuse to hear, receive, or admit To refuse as lover or spouse (Mirriam-Webster) One of the hardest parts of dating is rejection. Throughout my life, I have suffered with rejection. I would cry myself to sleep when that ugly voice came to tell me I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, skinny enough, or pretty enough to be accepted. Not just by men but also by friends, family, ministry leaders, employers etc.Read More →
