Valentine’s seems to be one of the few seasons where you suddenly become aware of your relationship status. For some, single or in a relationship, it ‘s an enjoyable period. For other’s it can feel overwhelming, lonely and disheartening. This is the group of people I am speaking to today. Not to make you feel stupid but to love on you, encourage you and hopefully set your heart back to peace again. In this post I will be asking you a series of questions and I want you to deeply think, consider and meditate on them. Most importantly I want you to be truthful to yourself regarding the answers.

Today is the 2nd of February 2017. Do you all know what that means??? It has officially been a year since I started My Heart’s Cry !! *whoop whoop*
I know for someone else, one year might not be anything and in the grand scheme of things, it isn’t much. However for me, it’s a testament of the faithfulness and sustaining power of God!
