Blog Series: Encouragement from Marrieds to Singles (Tierra Moore)

Me: How long were you single? Tierra: 6 years (from my last serious relationship to the time I married).

Lord of the Harvest

Mark 4:26-29 And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.  For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the… Continue reading Lord of the Harvest

Marriage at Its Finest

Saturday evening I was wandering aimlessly as my day’s plans had changed and I suddenly found myself with too much time on my hands (I know, I know, poor me). I was trying not to give in to temptation so prior to the cinema starting I made a last ditch effort and texted a friend… Continue reading Marriage at Its Finest

A Long Way Home

Four years ago I couldn’t have imagined that I would become entangled in this way.  Not with him that is…And every meeting pushes me further and further away from my goal which is Christ.  To live for Him, to surrender to His will, to walk with Him.  Instead my spiritual compass is sporadically pointing in every direction and much… Continue reading A Long Way Home

A Way of Escape

When I was a kid I remember doing this fire drill in a huge building filled with fake smoke and a fake fire.  We dropped to our knees, put our heads down, and on hands and knees, followed the person in front to the nearest exit.  The experience itself was to prepare us just in case we encountered a… Continue reading A Way of Escape

Suddenly the friendly evening banter turned into sexual suggestions, painting vivid pictures of erotic positions in my mind’s eye.  I fought the urge not to lean into him but gave into the desire to… Continue reading Fighting Temptation

A Letter to My Single Brothers

I’m not a man so I can’t fathom the temptation to engage a beautiful, godly, woman in conversation.  To proceed with texting her, calling her, and showering her with terms of endearment (via social media or otherwise), all the while having no intention to commit to her.  I can’t possibly fathom that temptation. I’m not… Continue reading A Letter to My Single Brothers

True Love

But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. . . . The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars… Continue reading True Love
