Instead, he laughed, made jokes on himself and his single status, and endeared himself to everyone who watched that episode.
But when 30 hit, let’s just say God and me were in a fight.
You go to youth group, you love Jesus, you meet someone, you graduate high school, you get married, and as the fairy tales say, “You live happily ever after.” When I was 19 I was ready. At 27, I understood and accepted that God was using the last few years to prepare me for marriage.
