So I’m slightly obsessed with Fabs Harford and her Jesus-loving, single-lady insight. This post struck home for me because something I’ve become very aware of this past year is that I’ve wanted everyone to know what I needed but in all honesty didn’t really have a clue what I needed myself.
My favorite little snippet of the blog post:
“I hide who I am because I know the truth: in the world knowing determines loving. We want to test drive the car before we buy it. We want to make sure that what we know about someone makes them safe to love. That’s how dating works, that’s how friendships work, that’s how employment works, that’s how everything works in our world: I will decide whether I love you based on what I know about you.
And as long as those are the rules, this sinful flesh of mine is a real handicap. That’s why I’m thankful for God. His worldview is different. For God, love determines knowing. He knows those who are His. He enters into ‘knowing’ with us because He loves us. He does not love us because of what He knows about us.”
Fabs also has some fabulous articles on Singleness that I’d encourage any single lady to read. (heck I think they are even good for all you committed ladies!)
