A Journal of My Favorite Bible Verses

I recently watched the movie War Room, a movie I have been wanting to see for quite some time.

War Room is about a woman who works as a real estate agent, and is having a tough time in her marriage. She then meets an older woman, who is selling her home, to move in with her son. The older woman begins asking the agent about her marriage. Once the agent opens up about her problems, the older woman tells her how she can help give her "weapons" to fight for her marriage, and about her "war room," which is an empty room, where she puts prayers up on the walls, for people she prays for.

The agent is hesitant at first, to pray, and to take this up, but after giving it some thought, she gives it a try, and she sees how much good prayer does, and how much changing her attitude towards her husband, and marriage, for her.

It is a very inspiring movie, that I would definitely recommend you watch!

After watching it, I decided to get a journal and write my favorite bible verses in it, like a couple of the characters in the movie did.

                                              The journal I got for my favorite bible verses.

I already have about 20 or so pages filled with verses that speak to me. I am also going to put inspirational quotes and songs in it as well, and read this journal when I am having a tough time.

Being Single

Valentine's Day...that holiday for happy couples.

Well, I am not a part of the "happy couple" equation, so Valentine's Day isn't one of my favorite days, holiday-wise.

I don't have a significant other to love. Plus, I'm not big on the commercialization of the day.

I know that people would say that I could love my family, and myself on this day.

I love my family anyway, and one day devoted to "love" just doesn't cut it for me.

I am learning to love myself, so it's not quite that simple to "love" me on Valentine's Day.

Anyway, back to my singleness, and a holiday that reminds me of that every year.

I have never really had a boyfriend/been in an official relationship with anyone, so Valentine's Day isn't really that special.

For a while, I have been happy with being single, but now, seeing friends in relationships, and getting engage/married, is making me feel like it's never going to happen for me.

I really want to have a meaningful, long, loving relationship with someone who will love me for who I am, who will love all of me. Someone who will not ask me to change anything about myself.

Someone who I will do the same for.

I want to get married, and have a family, someday. Hopefully sooner rather than later (I am not looking for a relationship, just to be in one. I have decided that I am really ready for love, and for to share my life with someone).

Although, it seems like it won't be happening any time soon.

But, I am not giving up hope. I know someone is out there, somewhere, who will be there for me. Who will want to be with me.
