Dear Jesus, please explain...

Guy: "Hey, so do you wanna grab coffee sometime?"

Hannah: "Well, see, I would love to, really, but I just feel like I need to remain single for a while. To focus on my relationship with the Lord. Ya know?"

Guy: "You could have just said no."

So, here's the thing, if some single lady*raising hand* feels that God is calling her to a season of singleness(singlehood?) what is said single lady suppose to say when invited out for coffee by a boy who, under normal circumstances, she would LOVE to sit down to a skinny vanilla latte with? I'm sorry, but the Bible just doesn't cover this. I don't want all three of the boys who ask me out  those boys who ask me out  to think that I'm trying to avoid saying no, but at the same time, I'm not going to be disobedient. Would it be easier if I just said no? Perhaps I should just give them my blog address and have them read this.

This would be one of those times when I wish God had provided a how-to manual for this season. I mean, what will the three boys  all those boys think if I keep saying no? I'm not sure I'm cool enough to be a woman of mystery.

Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited to be at this place with God. I cannot wait to learn the things He's going to teach me during this season, but how does one explain this potential dates? Explain this one, Jesus.



  1. I feel as though this was partially directed from conversations we've had. That's incredible. I'm so excited for you. But three boys? Wow. Are they cute?

  2. Haha no it was not. And that was a made up number. And yes they were. ;)

  3. You tell them whatever you are comfortable with. Frankly, it'd be cool if one of them responded, hey, that's awesome... i'll pray about it, too; or can i pray with/for you?

    for me, it would be easier to say it is about my walk with God... because then they know up front it isn't all about them (and saying no).

    good luck, sweetie!
