How long have you been on your own since and what did you to do get through it?:
I have been single for a year. I can't say I "got through it", as I am confident and comfortable on my own...I would say however, I have been very preoccupied with what God has been doing in my life: humbling me, drawing me back to Him, softening me heart and submitting me to Himself, teaching me of His grace, mercy, love, and worthiness to be praised, of His will for me.
With all that said, I would say in the last 4ish months I have started feeling a desire to find someone who I could see myself marrying...and my pastor told me that his wife prayed for someone who loved God more than her...and that struck me as beautiful and I have been praying for the same thing.
