Hey everybody it’s ya gurl Nij and I want to let yall in on my latest endeavor. After watching Larissa J’s YouTube video “Praying for my Husband,” I felt led to do something similar – not at first though.
Although I liked her idea, by the same token, I didn’t feel compelled to do it. Funny how God will give you a change of heart right?? For about a month, the thought kept coming and I ignored it – until it became apparent that the Lord was laying this assignment on my heart.
So on April 20, 2019, Love Notes Until We Meet was birthed. It’s an an Instagram page dedicated to prayers, poems and daily chats to my future husband. No I haven’t gotten hitched YET, but in this season of my singleness the Lord has me speaking to this thing uhkay??!!
I invite you all to check out my new channel and give me some feedback, comments and/or questions. Also feel free to repost and use the hashtag #lovenotesuntilwemeet
Yall know I couldn’t mention that line and not think of Aaliyah right??!! Anyway, it’s been a whole 7 months since since we last talked. I know I know (shame on me) but although I’ve been kinda quiet on here, I’ve been active on my IG and YouTube.
Hopefully the announcement that I’m about to make will get me back in your graces. So here we go…now yall know usually I’m helping others on their events by vlogging and promoting, but this time I AM HOSTING MY VERY OWN!! It’s been a few years in the making, starting with being led by God to speak more boldly about my singleness and things I have learned while on this journey. First, healing had to take place and then I had to gain some courage and confidence in this season of singleness – especially in a world where the idea of waiting on the Lord to bless you in your love life is seen as a joke. But yall, I’m living that blessed life to the max and decided to gather some single men and women together so that we can chat and chew uhkay??!!
The date is set for Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the beautiful Tabula Rasa Art Gallery in Rahway, New Jersey. Tickets are available so be sure to snatch up one or two…and I hope to see you there!
I was scrolling through the ‘Gram and came across this post and felt it was necessary to share this quick word of encouragement.
Now I’ll be the first to say that being single isn’t always “easy,” however, neither is being connected to the wrong person. For that cause – when it comes to love and matters of my heart – I’m taking my time because I wholeheartedly believe that true love will find me one day. I mean, how upsetting would it be to let my future dude down by settling?
When will he show up?
I have no idea…but I’ll be low key glad…then I won’t have to answer the #1 question “Why are you single?” again *insert chuckle*
Here are 5 points I want to leave you with pertaining to your season of singleness (but could also be used for any aspect of your life actually)…
Live life and walk boldly in your purpose.
Know your worth and don’t allow anyone to sweet talk you into giving discounts.
Know the difference between the one who tells you they want you versus the one who actively pursues you.
If he/she reminds you of the past, RUN!
Trust God through the process because your obedience will pay off
By the way, if you’re looking for more inspiration check out the video below:
My precious singles, that’s all I have for today. In the meantime, I want to leave a question for you: What is one thing you love about being single?
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to send me some questions you want me to answer or topics you’d like me to discuss. My email address is email@example.com. I’d love to read your comments.

1 week agoby iamnijahjWhen we "get ready" for something, we start going through the preparation process for whatever it is we have to do or where we have to go...because there's an appointed time...a destined time...which God says, "At the right time, I the Lord, will make it happen." Isaiah 60:22 Liiiiisten, God is up to something!
