When you hear the word purge, what do you think of?
I can’t say this word was a regular part of my vernacular at all, but it seemed to become a definite part of my life.
So as I was getting rid of much of my stuff, the Lord continued His encouragement to purge my life.
I walk my dog around the community of the condo two to three times a day. This gives me opportunity to do lots of thinking on these walks and I’ve had many conversations with the Lord as well.
During one of these conversations He told me to stop. I don’t remember the specifics of the conversation, but the word was clear, stop.
I knew exactly what He meant by His one word injection into my life. Stop dating, focus on me.
Stop I did. It wasn’t easy, but through prayer and tons of petitions, He lead me through it.
Stop equaled about 4 1/2 years of single hood where I was learning what it meant to believe in Jesus as my soul mate.
Where He wanted me to close one door of my life, He opened another.
