Hi! My name is Stefanie and I am 24 years old. Up until five months ago I had never had a boyfriend and that experience turned out to be pretty horrible. I always wanted to date and I have liked plenty of guys over the years but God never gave me the okay to date anyone. I have struggled with this on and off over the years, so much waiting. I have a blog, and a specific post that really shares my heart on some things. I just felt led to share this in hopes that it will minister to someone else who is struggling in a season of waiting.

Respond to This Prayer Request

  • February 26, 2015

    Wow. Your blog was almost word for word what I have been going through. That subtle slow fade where I lost all hope and trust in God really made itself known last month. Shamefully, I got mad at God. "If You loved me, you wouldn't put me through this" , I prayed.

    It amazes me how understanding patient God is with me. He allowed me let out all my frustrations. Then, when I was ready to receive it, He comforted me and spoke love into my spirit again. Now, because of the situation that I'm in, I have realized that I'm lacking in the trust department. I wasn't aware of that before. It's easy to trust in the good times. Thankfully, I have something to focus on, building my trust in the Lord.

    Thank you for sharing your post. It really encouraged me.

    Romans 4:20-21 NKJV

    He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

    I am soooo glad to hear this. My prayer is always that whatever I write, and whatever I have experienced, would speak to someone else. If you ask and really listen, God is faithful to speak!! :)

    This really spoke to me today. I actually don't even really have the words right now to explain what that meant to me, and how it really "fit" with what's going on with me right now. But I wanted to say thank you for sharing- for following God's voice.
