First Blog Post: Let’s Get Aquainted

Hello and welcome to my blog. 145Girl was taken from my favorite bible scripture, Luke 1:45.  There’s so much in there!  The amplified version says, “And blessed [spiritually fortunate and favored by God] is she who believed and confidently trusted that there would be a fulfillment of the things that were spoken to her [by the angel sent] from the Lord.”  Trusting in God takes faith- faith that says, “No matter what it looks like, sounds like or what ‘they’ say, I trust You Lord.”

145Girl is a blog dedicated to single women.  And while my blog may be dedicated to single women in particular, it is for all women: single, married, moms, professionals, college students, etc. On my blog we’ll discuss day-to-day life topics, recipes (because I get lots of requests) and encouragement to do and be all that God has purposed in our lives.

So in my first blog I just wanted to let readers know what I’m doing, what it’s all about and to introduce myself. I’m a 47 year old single mother of two; I have a 27 year old and an 8 year old. I’m from Gary, Indiana and currently reside in Memphis, Tennessee.

While single I have noticed a growing number of disgruntled single people, especially the women.  I want to encourage single women everywhere to wait and trust in God’s perfect timing and will for your life.  Myles Munroe said, “When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable.” Take this time to discover or grow in your purpose. Travel abroad. Start a business or two.  Go back to school.  Tutor some students. Volunteer. Write a book or blog.  Learn a trade or get a hobby. Seek God about doing the things that are dear to  His heart.  If you don’t know your purpose, then you’re bound to, or will allow someone else to abuse (misuse, mishandle, mismanage, damage, mistreat, exploit) your time, talents, gifts, abilities, and assets. Take this time to get your affairs in order and allow the Lord to do what needs to be done in you before marriage.  A married woman once told me to stay in the presence of God and learn how to woo Him. Let us remember that God is the only one we should ever be thirsty or desperate for.

I pray this richly blesses you,

Edie
