I'm fine...

I'm fine... really... most days.

I have a great job, amazing kid, outstanding family, kick butt friends... it makes this all a whole heck of a lot easier. 

But sometimes, I'm not fine... and the moment I'm not fine is the moment I start the believe that I will be alone forever. 

I know I know, that chances are that isn't true, but I am sure at one point or another you believed that as well.

Because my life is complicated, and I really do think that will scare pretty much all guys off (pretty for sure it already has, LOL).

And I am a pretty strong individual, and I'm gonna need someone even stronger to compliment me and support me.

And the fact is, I know about a handful of single guys, and well... none of them are exactly knocking down my door! (PS, my friend Hanna says you don't know what your missing out on).

But I seriously get really discouraged when I think about the future. When I think about having to take the trash out my entire life... I really hate taking the trash out. And even more so when I think about the things in life I want to accomplish.

In my mind, my goals and aspirations would be much easier and more efficiently accomplished with someone by my side. But have I limited by God by believing that I can only achieve my dreams if I have a man?

Don't get me wrong, I want someone in my life who will love Liv and I and take care of us... someone that is just as passionate about ministry and Jesus as I am... but if I get so focused on finding that person, thinking I need that person to accomplish God's plan, I might miss out one what God has has for me in the meantime.

Maybe I will be alone forever, it's definitely a possibility. But instead of living in that despair, I want to start living in Gods promises. If and when someone else comes along, I want to be so lost in God and fulfilling my purpose. 

My dreams aren't dependent on someone else coming into my life... And it's time for me to stop waiting for them to come along, and start fulfilling my dreams. 

Eph. 2:10 For we are Gods masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

  1. Paige, I like the way you are real in your blogs. I have only read a few but see lots of realness, passion and guts to just throw yourself out there in all honesty.So thanks for being REAL because we all need more of that.

    A quote that I lived by after a really rough season wondering if I would be alone forever or find a man who I could share life with the way God intended me to was, 'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

    I can honestly say that when I stopped looking for a man to complete me, God sent just the perfect man into my life that helps me be all that I can be in Christ.

    Keep seeking God, shining for Jesus and doing ministry the way He leads you to, day in and day out, AND God will complete you and probably send you a man to walk beside you so you can experience marriage the way He created it to be.
    Love you girl, Kay Meade

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
