welcome to the live original blog.

Sadie Rob in the house! Welcome to my first heart to heart with y’all via blog post on the LO website. I could not be more excited for this journey.  Disclaimer: I am not a counselor and do not have a degree, but I do have Jesus in my heart. I allow the Holy Spirit to lead, and I will speak to my personal experiences of what I have learned through God the father –  always turning my weakness into His strength. I want you to know that I will not be holding back from speaking truth over the many lies that the enemy speaks to us in the world today. Jesus is always able to speak truth over every lie, no matter how deeply rooted the lie goes, and that is one of the reasons I admire His love so much.

I have made it my mission to seek out wisdom from the truth, and I want to share with you some of the truths I’ve found in my own life. I sincerely hope it will speak over the lies you may be walking in today. In Ephesians 4:25, it says, “ So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body.” So that is exactly what I will do on this blog. That brings me to the first lie I want to discuss – the deception of the word passion in a relationship. Sadly, I fell for this one. At one point, I began to believe that the essence of passion was emotion. Where you fight but make it through and kiss to forget. It was a love that was formed from the hard times.

We were so … “passionate” – and to me, it seemed like that couldn’t possibly be a negative thing, because I heard the word passion at church all the time. That was a huge LIE and created so much confusion for me. I thought our connection was so deep because we created this false love for ourselves that said it was okay to constantly fight like cats and dogs, scream hateful words and cry till our eyes were swollen. All we’d have to do afterwards is share a kiss, make up and then boom – our relationship would be stronger than ever. That was wonderful and all…until the next throw down came which was inevitably not too far around the corner.

We would go through this unhealthy pattern of “I hate you, I love you. I hate that I love you.” The world makes that seem like such a normal, attractive  concept through movies and music, but let me tell you, it definitely is not. We figured out the hard way that all it leaves you with is a lot of hurt, loneliness and confusion. You can go with the media’s version of passion, but I’m speaking from experience here when I say that even if it survives and the relationship lasts, you will be living for temporary moments of happiness and gratification instead of true joy.

So, ask yourself…is your goal in life to just get by and make it through, or do you want to experience true love and joy in a relationship? Let me go a step further. Maybe you’re sitting here thinking “Yeah, I get it…this relationship is not necessarily the best, but we have already been dating for so long…and oh, Sadie, our good moments are so good, and our chemistry is just off the charts. Oh, and when we kiss…I still get butterflies. I can push through and survive the other 20 out of 24 hours that aren’t so glamorous.”

If this sounds like you, or you literally just told your accountability partner this when they questioned you, then you my dear are living in a temporary survival mode in your relationship. If you experience moments of happiness and little things that help you hold on, but then find yourself experiencing pain that goes beyond what is healthy in a relationship, then you are living with a false passion. Although it is normalized in our society, I want you to know that fear, jealously, pain, selfishness, impurity, manipulation and degrading comments are all UNHEALTHY components in a relationship and should not be considered normal.

Things weren’t always like that in my past relationship. We knew how to have fun. We laughed uncontrollably, danced in public and sang karaoke in the car. We ate ice cream and cooked pancakes before climbing on the rooftop to watch the stars say their final goodnight. We were free to be the best version of ourselves around each other, and let me tell you… I so adored him. Over time, we welcomed sin in and allowed it to create a wedge between us and God. We unintentionally removed ourselves from the foundation of true love. God never moved or separated himself from us, we just tuned out truth and started walking down our own path. That is a dangerous yet very common place to be.

Hindsight is 20/20, and when I look back, I know that God carried us both through. We were just too numb to feel His presence the time. I buried myself in excuses and lies. Eventually, I couldn’t even remember the truth anymore. One night after an intense fight that ended with the words “I love you”, something struck a cord in my Spirit. The word love awakened something in me. I grew up in church, so of course I knew that in 1st Corinthians 13 it talks about what love means. The Spirit led me to go read that chapter again.

I remember sitting outside of my hotel room in New York City after walking in fashion week. I was trying to hide from my family and friends so they would not see the makeup that was running down my face after an intense fight I just had on the phone. I clicked on my bible app and I re-read 1st Corinthians chapter 13. This is when I decide to seek truth and invited these words to tear down walls of lies that had been built up for so long. I remember comparing the conversation I just had with my boyfriend to the words I was reading in the bible, and let me tell you…it was the furthest things from the words we ended with…I love you.

I followed after the voice of truth and began a pursuit of peace. After reading all of the stories in the bible that showed a clear example of what I should be expectant of when it comes to the word love, I knew it was time to end the relationship. Ever since then, I have noticed that the word passion has a new meaning in my life. It is a passion that is pure, and it is the very thing that fuels me to press past the feelings that rise up and make me fear the future. When I find myself in a season of singleness, and jealously arises when I see someone I once loved with a new girlfriend, I don’t have to be envious or afraid. God gives me the strength to pursue my dreams and the purpose He planned for me long ago.

I no longer live in survival mode or pursue temporary feelings of happiness. I strive to live life the way it was meant to be lived – to the fullest. My story does not end in heart break or death. I have an abundant life full of joy, hope, freedom, and a word I have come to fall in love with… PEACE – which was waiting for me on the other side of trust.

God’s love is the breath to our spiritual life. I used to make list of what I want in my future husband, but now I just write prayers that circle around the list the Lord help me write. My husband will be a man who has practiced and respected patience. He is charmingly and truthfully kind. He is not jealous, because He trusts in the Lord enough to trust in me. He is not boastful or proud because our love speaks in actions. He surely is not rude. Our love most definitely does not demand its own way for we know and long for the Lord to lead our path. He is not irritable when times are stressful. Together we will keep no records of wrong. He dances with me and rejoices when truth wins. His joy carries us through the valleys. In the hard times, he will love even harder. He will help silence my fears, but he will not accept them. He believes in truth over convenience or being comfortable. He feels my cry, is encouraged by my laugh, and joins me in song no matter how off key to worship our father God. He will never give up, because his eyes are on God and not me. He will never lose faith. Even if the whole world is against me, he will be for me because he loves the Jesus in me. He knows a river brings joy into the city of God even when the nations are in chaos. He sits still with me and knows that God is God. He will be able to endure all circumstances, because I will be right there with him holding his hand – striving to do the exact same thing. He will lead me where the Lord is leading him. We will meet at the Lord’s feet.

This kind of love is what I am passionate about.  It makes me smile when I wake up and encourages me to pray before I sleep. I do not search for perfection, I search for someone who is led by the perfect love of our Jesus. I pray for him daily. I cannot wait to bring Godly passionate love into a dull world. Ladies, I hope this speaks truth to you and that you can join me in fighting for pure passion. Pray for your hubby even before you meet him. Also, pray for the woman that you will be in the relationship. Begin to practice being the woman you read about in Bible stories. Pray for the characteristics of the iconic Proverbs 31 woman. By beginning to pray now your passion will only grow in excitement for the love you will one day have. Be expectant and do not lose the passion the Lord creates in you.

Ps : This was Sadie written and Blake approved. I know what y’all were thinking J all is well mates.

  • Lex says:

    I’m 16 years old and I grew up in church and I yearn to have a strong relationship with god. I began dating a boy four months ago and he does not believe in god nor doesn’t feel the need to change the way he lives. I pray that god will open his eyes so that he can be the guy that I need him to be. I can’t let him go because I just don’t want to. Please pray for me. Give me strength to do what needs to be done. Reading this just really pierces my heart …. you really are an inspiration Sadie, love you !!! ?❤️

    • Tiffany Snider says:

      I read your comment and I wanted to say I’ve been in the same place before. I prayed to God all the time about it and one day I was reading the Bible and I got the answer I was looking for. i ended my relationship with my Ex. Boyfriend and it was hard but I have friends who helped me through it. Now my faith is stronger then it used to be and God blessed me with a guy who’s faith is just as strong as mine. I’m praying for you and hope God leads to the answer your looking for, just like he did for me. ❤️

    • Heather says:

      I will be praying for you! I hope he sees soon how he’s afftecting you.

    • Haley Byrd says:

      Lex,
      I am not a relationship guru whatsoever lol, so I am not going to give you any advice. I will say that as cliche as it might sound, God does have a plan for you. I pray you find happiness in the end. Whether it be with God and no boyfriend, or with God and a boyfriend who wants to be the man God intended for you to have.

  • Anna says:

    This is amazing!! Could you write one about when to know if the time is right to date for the first time? ❤️❤️

    Beautifully written. So honest and encouraging. ❤️

    This post is great, Sadie!! You write so well and I love how the Holy Spirit speaks throug you. This definitely spoke a lot to me and the relationship I am beginning. I want to have that spiritual purity and spiritual freedom and spiritual passion in the relationship to fuel a God-breathed relationship. Thank you ?

  • Tiffany says:

    Thank you Sadie I really needed to hear this. It could not have been better said. I can’t wait to see you on your tour and to hear more about God from you. I go to church and I believe in God but sometimes my faith is not as strong as I wish it was. I’m trying to and build a better relationship with God as each day passes. ❤️❤️

  • Prestelle says:

    This was so encouraging, Sadie.

  • Ruby says:

    Wow Sadie! I’m only 14 and I’m not allowed to date but I know I should start praying about all this that you said. I usually don’t like reading long things but this pulled me in. I remember you posting picture of Blake. It always made me feel that I want that relationship. But I guess through the picture you don’t know what it’s like on the inside. No one beside the 2 people in the relationship really know what’s going on. And I write down list that I want my husband to be but that’s not even close to the husband God has set for me. I will definitely pray for all this. I will be praying for you too! I never pray for people like you because I figure you’re so perfect and smart and you don’t need prayer because you have a strong relationship with Jesus. But now that you write this I’m learning so much. Thanks for writing this Sadie and thanks for approving it Blake. Love you Sadie thanks for everything

    Hi Sadie,

    You are an incredible inspiration for one so young. My age is older than your Mom, but younger than your Grandmother and your example of living for God and giving Him all the glory is an awesome thing to see! Even though I’m so much older than you, I think you’re a wonderful young woman and I just love you to pieces! Your family is a wonderful example of Godly love and living The Word!
    Keep that bright light of yours shining Sadie! Lots of love from Michigan….

  • Jackie C. says:

    Thank you Sadie! I love this and appreciate your honesty in these words. I think that what you spoke about was true to scripture and is so important at a time when this culture makes it difficult to find deep and meaningful relationships.

  • Grace says:

  • Meredith says:

    Wow reading this reminded me of my last relationship. Literally EVERYTHING you said spoke to me.

  • Kellee P. says:

    Wow I really needed to here this beautiful message today! Thanks for being a great role model to me and many other fans!

  • Jimmy says:

    Passion. The passion that you have to reach this [wonderfully made] young generation is beautiful and pure. As individuals try to remember that being alive is generally good, rather than listening to the lie that life is a painful struggle, your positivity is a glittery glow.

    To the web admins:
    Quality site, but I would highly suggest an alternative font for the blogs posts (as well as other word-heavy content.)

  • Makenzie Stewart says:

    You have no idea how much this spoke to me. I broke up with my boyfriend almost 2 weeks ago + he has been fighting to recover all that was broken. I know it is not what is best for me, but this truly spoke to my heart and made me realize that I deserve someone that you wrote about… and those characteristics do not develop over 2 weeks. Thank you sadie ❤

  • Chuck says:

    I like you even more now ❤

  • Jackie says:

    Wow! What maturity and grace, from such a lovely young woman! You radiate sunshine! My daughter is only one but I already pray for her and her future husband! The exact husband you describe! Looking forward to reading this blog!

  • Sandy Royall says:

    Hi Sadie, such an insightful blog that everyone young person (girl and boy) should read! So powerful and true. I prayed for my husband-to-be and God truly blessed me with a wonderful, Godly man. It wasn’t easy… I waited A LONG TIME for him but it was SO worth the wait! I will pray for you as you wait on the Lord. Passionate, Godly love is worth waiting for!!

  • Kirra says:

    Thank you so much for writing this Sadie. I was in a relationship much like the one you desrcribed for close to two years. When it ended this past spring I was devastated, because I was only thinking of our good moments. Over the past couple of months I have begun to realize that our relationship was not healthy, much like the one you described. Your words have spoken to my heart and they were just what I needed to hear today.

  • Marina says:

  • Ryleigh says:

    I love this blog already! God has been laying a lot on my heart about the upcoming year. I start high school, and I feel like God has changed me into a whole new person this summer.

  • Haley Byrd says:

    I have always been a Christian but recently fully committed my life to Christ. I would like to say a quick prayer on this blog post because I feel this is one every single person can relate to no matter your age or gender.

    Dear Lord,
    Please guide every one who seeks a relationship with You, into a Godly based relationship.
    Please guide those who aren’t seeking You, to seek a relationship with You because YOU are our one true love and can give us the happiness we wish for.
    Please encourage anyone who is reading this blog to step away from that toxic relationship they find themselves in.
    Please encourage parents to show their children what true love looks like and what they should be striving to seek in a Godly based relationship.
    I pray that everyone finds that true love within Christ and their significant other.
    Sadie, you are a role model that inspires everyone around the world. I hope all these positive and uplifting comments keeps you on the right path to be that role model for generations to come.
    Amen.

    I can not wait to hear you speak at the Live Original tour in Louisiana!

  • Sadie-

    Thank you so much for this! I went through a similar break up but there is so much truth to this post! I just love it! I will keep it forever to remind me of what love is really like! I need to find my focus on God & not wordly things. Thank you so much for this! ?

  • Emma Meredith says:

    Wow this was so amazing!! Exactly what I needed.

  • Vicki Kerns says:

    Thank you, Sadie. You’re a very wise & strong young woman. I’m 61 & was in love with a "suppised" good friend of 12 years. I gave, he took & my heart ended up being crushed. I am looking to God to help me learn drom this, forgive him (& myself) & keep moving forward. I believe that even at my age (never been married) God still has someone wonderful for my life & that He protected me from further hurt. You’re a wonderful role model for young ladies & I just love all of the Robertsons. God bless you, young lady.

  • PR says:

    You are such an inspiration! I am so blessed to feel your passion for the Lord though this post. You inspire me, Sadie <3

  • Jessica Nelson says:

    Wow wow wow. Love this so so much!! Thank you for sharing!! <3

  • Marion Howell says:

    Wow!! Just wow! Amazing job Sadie! Thank you for the honesty! I personally see myself as the poster child for waiting for God to bring your mate to you! Currently stuck in a horrible marriage where we haven’t lived together for 4 years he is a lot like your former boyfriend. Stay strong! You are Bea, amazing and Gods princess! You deserve His best!!

  • Breeann Sasselli says:

    Love this so so much! Thank you!!

  • Kat says:

    Love this extremely encouraged

  • Faith says:

    Very encouraging! ♡

  • Jodi says:

    As a Christian therapist so relieved that Blake approved because it was obvious who you were talking about by the events mentioned. This is a very public post and most of your followers are so gracious, but there are those who will exploit. I so appreciate that you are a passionate voice of faith and growth! What an incredible, exciting, vulnerable role to step into. Continue to surround yourself with others with passionate faith!!!

  • Mikaela says:

    I cannot express how much this means to me. You are so wise Sadie. I’ve been struggling for so long to try and find peace in a certain situation, and God made it very clear through you. Always let your light shine! You’re definitely a blessing to everyone – including those of us who only know you by your posts.

  • Kennedie Burston says:

    Thank you for your honesty Sadie. I was never in a relationship quite like this but I have let men overstay their welcome in my life due to the expectation of a relationship that society gave me. Every time you make a post or video about your personal experiences in the love department, you encourage me not only to be patient (for what God has for me) but to seek God first. You also just gave me a prayer to pray for my future hubby! ? Have a blessed day girl, and keep letting God use you.

  • T. Loreal says:

    For the Lord truly works in mysterious ways. I’ve been in a relationship for 4 years almost married for 2 and the perfect way to describe it is just the way you described. There are some days I can’t even stand to be in the same room. I’ve been unhappy for a long time yet something keeps me here. I’ve prayed and prayed to be shown a path to choose, do I stay or do I go? After a huge fight recently and a $400 windshield later, I prayed harder for a choice and somehow I stumbled upon your blog. And how odd that it be about the exact things I prayed about not two days ago? Thank you for your words of wisdom and I pray that the Lord can show us both to healthy relationships.

  • Addie Cummings says:

    Sadie, thank you!! You are the greatest influence.. I look up to you in so many aspects of my life. I loved this!! Thanks again.

  • Grace says:

    This was exactly what I needed to hear. I just broke up with my boyfriend yesterday and this is exactly what our relationship was and it hurts right now but I know it’ll be good in the long road. It makes me feel better to know that others experienced the same thing I have. Thank you for writing this.

  • Savannah Benton says:

    Sadie you are my role model and I strive to be just like you someday. I want my relationship with the Lord to be just as close as yours in. We love you Sadie and are so thankful that you are willing to help others in their faith and encourage others in their faith.
    Love ya girly and can not wait for another blog

    Loved this so much Sadie! You really poured your heart and soul into this blog and I thank you for this. This is exactly what I needed to hear today. To have a passion for the Lord and give everything to him because he is in control of everything. To pray for peace and love that only the Lord can give me and to strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman and have a closer and deeper walk with the Lord. I pray for this everyday and I am so thankful for you and your fellow writers for this blog and the daily encouragement through this blog. God bless y’all one and all! ❤❤❤❤

    Thank You.

  • Ashley Hawkins says:

    Hey Sadie! I just wanted to thank you so much for sharing this. It was such a huge encouragement! I’ve been going on and off with a guy for a while trying to figure out my feelings and how to deal with our relationship…I’ve cried myself to sleep many nights just thinking about how much i want to be in a serious relationship with him and to hear what you and the bible have to say about love and passion is such a huge encouragement! I know that I can find my strength and comfort in God because He is my rock and my only source of strength♥️ It’s also good for me to hear that I’m not the only one struggling with these problems so thank you again so much!! Much love, Ashley??

  • Charlotte says:

    Sadie,
    I really enjoyed reading this, both as a girl and as a pediatrician who is always looking for positive influences for my teenagers. I respect you so much for staying as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside! Also, some might think that future husband you described is a tall order but he really does exist! I didn’t meet that one for me until I was 27 years old after I had begun to believe that all the good ones must be taken. But trust me he was so worth the wait… and worth every single breakup. So never be afraid to break up when you know it’s not just right.
    Love, Charlotte

  • Emily Grace says:

So thank you for for letting God speak these words of wisdom through you to people like me and others who are in the same boat☺️

  • Sadie, this is so good! You have grown so much and I’m so thankful that God has revealed these truths to you. You are in a place of influence on this generation, and I pray that as you stand against the enemy, you will have confidence that the Lord is protecting you.

  • Olivia says:

    Recently I just strive for this. I watch these YouTube videos of these couples who center their relationship around God and I just pray and pray for that. I pray for what you described in this post. My parents just recently got divorced and I know I never want that to happen to my relationship. I have hope and faith that God will bless me with a relationship that will praise Him and be blessed by Him and will last a lifetime because of Him. I’m 18 and I’ve never had a boyfriend or even a first kiss for that matter. i believe this is Gods plan for me for a reason. I know consciously that I want my relationship to be special and based on God and I want to truly connect with someone. I’ve felt the hurt my parents felt and I know I never want that to happen. I find myself praying daily for this man and myself to be the Godly woman God wants me to be.

    thank you so so much for everything that you speak towards, and everything it brings to many many people.

Thank you again it truly makes an impact on my life!!

  • Dakota says:

    This was honestly so amazing and just what I needed today. Sadie, you are a true gift from God. Thank you so, so much for this❤

  • Hannah Burkhart says:

    This is amazing. Exactly what I went through about two months ago. Thank you for sharing. Just knowing someone else has felt the same way is a great feeling. Nice to know you aren’t alone.

  • D'Anna says:

    This was exactly what I needed. I too just got out of a damaging relationship and it still kills me even though I say it doesn’t. He is actually trying to get with my best friend, who I feel is caving in. As painful as that is, I find peace knowing that God is in complete control. He already has this written out and I can’t erase that. And that’s okay. Thank you for being so inspiring to me.

  • Lori Lickliter says:

    THAT! THOSE WORDS! This blog post has so much truth in it. I am so thankful that you have been given a platform to expose lies and be a Godly example. Keep being you…it’s amazing! I also wanted to speak to one more thing regarding this post. This may be a role your eyes, here we go, response on your end…but I have to put it out there. I have a 21 year old son who understands this and has yet to meet his mate, but is praying for her daily. I’m sure everyone has ‘the perfect’ guy for you, so I won’t compel you with those words. But, if this happens to prick your heart and not leave your mind, give me a shout. You never know!

  • jessie says:

    This was just what I needed on this rough day, thank you so much!! ??

  • Ainsley Kanning says:

    Can’t wait to see how God uses you through this blog, Sadie. He’s already spoken through you in so many ways, and I can’t wait to hear what He wants you to say. Looking forward to future posts! ❤️❤️❤️ Lots of love and prayers! ??

  • Maddie Meza says:

    Sadie my goodness does the Holy Spirit shine bright through you!! Thank you for spreading God’s glory and being such an amazing light in this dark and perverse world!! Keep it up girly!:)

  • Rachel Arrington says:

    Thank you Sadie. The timing for this was literally perfect and was a great reminder in so many ways. You’re a true blessing to me and so many people. Keep pursuing God wholeheartedly because He is using you in ways you can’t even imagine. Thank you again!

  • allison says:

    Sadie, I had a mentor who told me the best compliment you could give a person is to tell them God shines brightly through them. I just want you to know that you are one of those people! You are inspiring and beautiful, and you’ve touched me with your truthful words! Absolutely can not wait to read more from you!

  • Kaitlyn says:

    Thank you Sadie! ?

  • Sharon Jones says:

    So good!! This is such a refreshing perspective on relationships, its very encouraging to hear!! Thank you so much for sharing your heart!

    ps…a Baton Rouge date would be much much appreciated:-)

  • Anna Weber says:

    Thank you for the reminder to pray for my husband!! Every relationship, even a great one, needs a daily reminder that growth in our love for our Lord and Savior is growth in our bond with one another.

  • Skylar says:

    Wow! I needed that! The characteristics you used to describe how you pray for your future husband are spot on! I pray for my future husband often, but I go through times of loneliness when all my friends have boyfriends and I try to find comfort in an ungodly guy so that I am shown affection. This was a great reminder to trust God and be patient. I also am going to start praying about the woman I will be in my marriage which Is something I’ve never thought about!

  • this is something I have needed for a year now and it answered so many questions I have about a relationship I’m in that I am constantly second guessing. tonight I have been really bothered about the situation and uncertainty of our relationship and this is exactly what I needed. thank you, Sadie

  • Abigail Bradford says:

    thank you for this! I have wondered about this for a while and didn’t really get it until now. I wrote down a few things to remember daily and help my focus stay on what is truly important: Christ! The Lord is working wonders in your life, and your smile and joy are radiant with his Love! I’ll be praying for you!

  • Heather says:

    So well said, Sadie! You are such an encouragement to me as a single girl, living original! One of the few peers I look to for encouragement, to grow in my walk with God, and know you spend time daily in God’s Word. Love you sweet sister, Heather

  • Mikaela - says:

    Girl this is exactly what I needed! I just got out of a very long, toxic relationship with a guy who had no passion for God. For the last 2 years of that relationship I really struggled with my personal relationship with God and became complacent in life. About 2 months ago our relationship ended and I was sad at first, but now I feel "peace" like you mentioned in your blog. The fire I have in my heart for God is growing and I never want that to stop. I have started keeping a journal, and in that journal I write a prayer to God concerning my future husband every night. I was so close to getting back into that toxic relationship I was in because I feared that someone else couldn’t love me because of mistakes I made while in that relationship. God has truly shown me that He does have someone who will love me unconditionally and continutes to show me daily that He loves me. I cannot wait to read more of these blogs! You are truly a Proverbs 31 woman and set such an amazing example for other 20 somethings in our generation to follow! Thank you for sharing this incredible post and reassuring me what love should really look like. You’re a blessing!

  • Selena says:

    I absolutely loved this! You are such an inspiration! I really needed hear this. I just got out of a serious relationship and this really spoke to me! I pray for you to keep doing this and I can’t wait to read more!!❤️

  • Andrew says:

    Sadie, thank you for your incredible vulnerability and inspiring hope in Jesus. As a 22 year old recent college grad this post really related to me. I had liked an incredible girl for 3 years; we enjoyed each other’s friendship but as I pursued her more romantically, her feelings faded and I was blind to the truth. Despite this, God really used her to bring me back to Himself, as my heart strayed from the greatest love of all. It’s encouraging to see women like yourself so on fire for Jesus. Praying you’re able to continue spreading His love and wisdom through this platform!

  • Frankie Hearon says:

    Your an inspiration and it is amazing to sit back and watch the Holy Spirit work through you .. Keep on going and let the light of Jesus Christ keep shining through you Sadie

  • Brandi says:

    So glad to hear a sister in Christ turn the "worldly" perceptions of a relationship into God’s perception! Love you Sadie 🙂

  • Audrey says:

    just read proverbs 31 last night and wondered why God brought me to that chapter;)) LOVED this!

  • Camryn says:

    This was absolutely beautiful. This week has been full of firsts for me. I met a boy who loves the Lord with his whole heart. I’ve liked him for a while now and he asked me out to breakfast this past Wednesday. (He’s 19 and I’m 17, and neither one of us have been in a relationship before)We prayed over our food together and even locked arms in the movie theater. He is funny, charming, kind and caring. Then on Friday we held hands and watched the sunset. It sounds cheesy but it was so beautiful. I’ve enjoyed being around him so much. Today he asked to meet for coffee because there were some things that had been weighing on his heart. We sat in the car together and he told me that he didn’t want to pursue a relationship because he felt that God wasn’t calling him to that at this time. We sat for a bit longer and talked about the world and Jesus. We’ve agreed to stay friends, but my heart still hurts. I know he is good and that his intentions are pure. I know that God has plans for him that are bigger than the world. I know he’s not perfect, but it is so refreshing to meet a boy that is chasing after Jesus wholeheartedly. I really needed this post. God is so good and gracious. Thank you for this. I’m just really asking for prayers over the two of us and our hearts. Thank you?

  • Kennedy says:

    Needed this! ❤️

  • Emily says:

    I’ve never been in a relationship, but have lately been praying more earnestly for my future in general, and a husband is something I haven’t thought about a lot in the past, but since starting to pray for him it does have me excited that God has that person for me! Thank you for sharing, Sadie, and I just want to encourage you with that this is spot on! ❤❤

  • Katelyn gray says:

    Thanks for this. I’m a huge fan and your just such an inspiration to me. Thanks ??

  • Karrah says:

    Sadie,

    When I went to college my mom gave me these words that have stuck with me. She said when you find the person you want to marry use their name in place of love in 1st Corinthians 13 and I did. I have found my best friend, the one I have been praying for. He and I have been together for almost 2 years. We are more in love with God and knowing each others hearts for God than ever. Reading your post shines so bright into my life and I’m sure into so many others. Thank you for letting Gods light shine through you and into others lives. God bless you in all that you do and thank you for sharing!!

  • Tara says:

    Bless yourself with St. John Paul II writings… The theology of the body… your blog is weeping with its truths. God Bless

  • Marita says:

    Okay first off: you were SOO right, was totally thinking it was about Blake. And honestly I was so shocked. I thought because I follow you on social media and read and listen to you talk that I know who you are (more or less). But this really showed me that what they say is SO TRUE. You don’t know someone based off of the cute highlight pictures they post. I had no idea this was going on and you both looked SO cute together. It shocks me but actually is an awesome realization for me. Thank you for sharing this with us. Also I love your article and especially your list of what you want in a guy. That was so beautiful I wanted to cry. You didn’t say any physical characteristics and I think that’s so cool. I love how deep and real you want your husband to be, and although our lists are a bit different, your list is really inspiring to me. Lastly, this doesn’t really have to do with the blog but I want to just say anyways that I know you had/have anxiety and fear and I suffer from that too in different areas of my life, but your turning to God through it is really inspiring and it’s encouraging to hear that He is helping. It helps me turn to God more with my anxiety. For a future post could you maybe talk about how you conquer your fear/anxiety with the Lord? That would help me so much.
    God bless you Sadie,
    Marita

  • Carolina Trueba says:

    Absolutely loved it! Awesome post and very well said! Looking forward to your future blog posts and strengthening my relationship with Him!

  • Emma says:

    This is SO true and beautiful and eye-opening and inspirational! Thank you for all your insight and God-given wisdom! This has made me rethink "love" and what it really means to "love" someone and be in a real relationship. Thank you.

  • Tiffany brubacher says:

    The way you put passion in such a new perspective for me has really made me think. I have always looked at passion in a way that’s exactly like what you described as the wrong kind of passion. I always thought it meant this crazy movie love story that always ends up being totally "amazing." The way you see passion makes a lot more sense to me. This blog made me realize that finding a partener isn’t going to be easy but I am not going to settle for a man that doesn’t love God and make me love God more and more each day. I’m only 15 so finding a life partener isn’t really a huge concern for me but this is a reminder not to forget about the right kind of passion in life. I’m so glad you’re writing blogs!! You remind me to be a better version of myself ❤️❤️

  • Tiffany Messer says:

    I needed to hear this. As a girl who is struggling from an abusive relationship this really spoke to me. It makes want to keep fighting and find the strength to be at peace with myself and God. I want to try and have an connection with God but don’t even know where to start? Thank you for this

  • Sara says:

    Wow! I am so glad I signed up for this! Reading this tonight has helped me so much!?

  • Charli Tyree says:

    Going through this EXACT situation at the moment. Thank you for sharing. I can’t tell you how much this post has helped me tonight. I have tears running down my face. Thank you for sharing your heart. ❤️ God truly knows what we need when we need it!! ?

  • Mira says:

    I love how God is speaking through you girl! I just got out not so healthy relationship and what you shared has encouraged me beyond what I could have hoped for. Thank you for being transparent and giving the glory to God. This gives me so much hope and joy for the future my Lord has planned for me!

  • Linda Underwood says:

    This was an amazing post Sadie. It really puts thing into perspective about what passion really is and that we can always find our answers in the Bible.

  • Caitlyn Moore says:

    Hello, first off I just wanted to say that there is no better way to end my birthday than to sit here and read this. I am about to start my senior year in high school and I have never been in a relationship before. I have recently found myself craving for a kind of relationship where we can have fun and do all the crazy/cute things that couples do. While reading this I realized that if I am desiring these kinds of things, then I am not focusing upon the only relationship that matters. This blog reminds me of a quote my small group leader used to tell me which is, "When you chase after God with all your heart, there will come a man that will have to chase just as fast to keep up with you." I now desire to have a completely fulfilling relationship with Christ, and if a relationship with someone else is to come out of that, then let it be one that has a foundation solemnly upon Christ.

    I’ve been struggling with the feeling that I’m idolizing relationships, especially Godly ones, and that I’m putting the search for a husband above my search for more of God. This post reminded me that it’s not bad to desire a Godly husband, but that the best way to strengthen my future relationship with a husband is to strengthen my relationship with the Lord. Prayer is a beautiful and powerful thing, and it allows us to bring God the things we care about in a way that is not idolatrous, including a future marriage!

  • Maggie L says:

    I absolutely love this. I feel so encouraged to seek the truth of the Lord in relationships and have courage to be lead by His spirit. Thank you for this!

  • Savannah Ortiz says:

    This was beautifully written, you are wise beyond your years. Thank you for sharing your story, although I’m sure it was not easy to write and to put in to words, it is helping hundreds of girls at this very moment. Thank you,
    Sadie ?

  • Alicia says:

    This is absolutely great. I agree with every word that is said! Keep speaking truth boldly girl! God has given you a platform to speak where girls look up to you and admire you. I think it’s amazing that you a Godly remodel for young girls. You keep being who God created you to be!

  • Allison says:

    Wow. Sadie, it’s as if you were just inside my head! These are the same thoughts I’ve been having lately surrounding the topic of future love. It brings me so much hope, joy, and excitement to pray about it. I was pleasantly surprised to learn it brings you those things too. 🙂

  • Hope Nolen says:

    Coming from someone who NEVER comments on people social media anything, blog, etc. God spoke straight to my heart through this. Thank you Sadie for being a woman pursuing Jesus not just a godly relationship but the Savior himself. While I’ve found myself in a season of singleness I have also found God showing me girls to pour the love of God the Father into. Thank you for being an encourager and boldly sharing your heart.

    Much love,
    Hope

  • Hannah Coyle says:

    The sentence that caught my eye was "Pray for your hubby even before you meet him." Because it’s SO TRUE!!! I used to be so worried about my lack of relationships until I completely gave it up the the Lord and put my energy into praying for my future husband rather than worrying about not having one… Almost IMMEDIATELY God put the most incredible man into my life, and I thank the Lord for him every day because we have an wonderful relationship! 1 Peter 5:7 says that we need to cast all of our cares upon the Lord because He cares for us, and that has been made so evident in my life these past few months. I still pray for my future husband, because I don’t know if I will end up marrying this man, but it’s so neat to see how the Lord works once you give Him room to work. This blog post was such an uplifting encouragement to me! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  • Tatum Richey says:

    Wow. God continues to shine and speak through you Sadie. You are such an encouragement to me and a wonderful example for me. I literally just went through a breakup and had my heart, I guess you could say re-broken, after deciding to give a second chance in the wee hours of this morning. I know that God is protecting me and I feel like by putting a halt to starting things up again I am following through with God’s will for me. But your words just completely confirmed that for me. I never thought of our relationship in the way that you just outlined but it was so spot on.
    Thank you for taking the time to write and share your wisdom. You are such a light and I can’t wait to read more!!

    God Bless?

  • Alaina says:

    I just got out of a relationship with my best friend, and I never saw it coming. I have really been searching in my heart for the Lord and for His peace. I have been so torn and heartbroken that I have put myself and my own problems above the Lord, trying to solve them myself. Sadie, those words really hit my heart. I’m so thankful you shared that with us. I really felt the power of the Lord touch my heart. I’m so blessed and I’m so thankful for people like you….you’re the best! God is so good!

  • Heather says:

    Beautifully written! I’m past the dating season and have been married for almost 7 years, but 1 Corinthians 13 is definitely a good start when it comes to any romantic relationship! Also pray, pray, pray for your husband even while you are single! I did, and not only did God meet my desires but he exceeded my expectations! Be blessed!
    Heather

  • Sydney Beavers says:

    Well said Sadie!! You are such an inspiration to me. Thank you for being such a light in this world!!

  • Ashley Smiley says:

    this hits home for myself. after dating a guy for three years and experiencing a lot of the things you wrote, I have assurance that breaking up with him was Gods plan. now being single for the first time in a long time, I sometimes find myself being sad and lonely but then I am reminded how much I am truly loved and that God has a better plan than I could ever think of, it gives me so much peace and hope for the future! thank you for being someone that people (especially teenage girls) can look up to in this crazy world today!
    much love,
    Ashley

  • Lydia says:

    Wow. Thank you. You are an amazing inspiration Sadie. I am 27 and still single. So many of my friends are married with kids already… and I just had to tell a guy I’ve been dating for a little while ( we never got serious) that I don’t see a future with him. He is a good godly man, but I knew in my spirit that he wasn’t for me. And no matter how much I prayed about it, God wouldn’t change his answer. It’s hard, but I trust him. I want God’s choice for me and I know I am gonna find him. =)

  • Becca says:

    This has been something God has placed on my heart for the past couple days. I needed to hear this more than you’ll ever know. Thank you for your words and your wisdom!

  • erin says:

    this makes me realize how badly I need to tell my dude that isn’t even my dude anymore "peace"…… wow hits home

  • Nora McMahon says:

    First of all thank you. You inspire so many people to be bold and speak the truth so never stop doing you. Secondly, this is just what I needed to hear. Today a very good friend of mine (a not quite boyfriend) and I broke off our relationship. It was so so good, but God has other plans for us and even though it is really hard for both of us I needed to hear some of the things you said. That I need to really live and not just survive but get back up on my feet and live my life again and be that joyful presence to others. So thank you for the encouragement, I’m not even sure if you’ll read this but your words really hit home especially today when I needed it most.

  • Gabriel de Witt says:

    Sadie, this just happened to me. A relationship I had been in for four years just ended. We fought almost exactly as you described and lived almost exactly as you described. It’s been almost 2 months and seeing this opened my eyes. We were doing a lot better in the last few months of our relationship and I was ready to do anything to be better. But she had made up her mind, even if she didn’t realize it. I see now how bad it was and how it was survival living. Thank you for this wonderful blog. Though it has shown me why it was the way it was, I feel so much worse knowing this and don’t know where to go from here…

  • Sydnee says:

    This blog truly meant a lot to me Sadie. I know this must have been very difficult for you to share something so personal to the world. I am thankful that you did because it showed me that I have been praying for the wrong things in my future husband. I also have been praying that I will be a Godly wife to my future husband and start learning how to be now. However, I have not been trying my hardest. Thank you for showing me the truth.

  • Morgan says:

    You are WISE beyond your years. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart with millions of people around the world. I, too, am finding myself in a season of singleness after being cheated on for the 4th time (out of the 4 guys I’ve dated….says something about my taste in men, huh?), and it’s not an easy season. Thank you for your encouraging words. I know I needed to hear them!

  • Ashley says:

    God is using you in amazing ways Sadie. This post just spoke straight to my heart. Keep it up, keep living for the Lord and standing up for Him. I absolutely love this post, it’s beautifully written. I cannot wait for the upcoming posts and the ways the Lord will use you! Reading this tonight is just what I needed. <3 God bless you Sadie!

  • Clare says:

    This was so beautifully written. As someone who never comments on blog posts, I felt as though I couldn’t scroll past without letting you know how much this meant to me. Thoughts of future love have been on my mind for a while now, but your articulation of bold truth and love spoke to me heart. Thank you for sharing your light with the world and giving me the words I didn’t know I needed to hear.

  • Elisabeth says:

    Girl you just said everything I needed to hear. Thank you. Xo

  • Macie says:

    I needed to hear this. I’m so thankful that you have such a passion for the Lord and that you could share this with us.

  • Megan says:

    I have been searching for advice, guidance, and just some clarification on Christian relationships and this was exactly what I needed. Thank you so much for all the time and dedication you put into your work Sadie! It is truly inspirational and I’m so glad you do what you do. God has truly blessed the world by using you in so many amazing ways. You have helped me get through body and facial criticism just by leading by example and I could never thank you enough for it. Of course I’ve been looking in the Bible for the answers I’m in search of but I feel these were the words I needed to clarify what God has been trying to tell me all along. I need to be looking for a Godly man but to attract one I must be a Godly woman myself. Thank you so much for writing this. I can’t wait to read more blogs and continue to grow in my faith with your help! <3

  • Luke Schweinsberg says:

    Absolutely amazing. A true story inspired by God. It is amazing how our testimony can help stgrenthen other followers of Christ. As well as lead them in the right direction. Thank you for doing this and being such an amazing light in the dark world:)

  • Nicholas Barclay says:

    Thanks Sadie,
    I appreciate you putting yourself out there and opening yourself up. I went through something with someone I thought I loved quite recently, she kinda played with my feelings and when I finally was breaking things offf with her she mentioned how she "Loved" me. After ending things, I thought back as well and realised how easy it is to say you love someone or something but not actually mean it and sometimes how easy it slips of the tongue. However I know the love the father Has for us is so much greater than anything else we can ever imagine and that we can only hope to love him as much as he does us.
    Thanks again,
    Nicholas

    ps. I come to Scotland!!

  • Michelle says:

    You just put into words what I’ve been trying to sort out in my mind for a long time! Thank you for that Christ filled loving message, it truly meant a lot!

  • Rylee says:

    This truly is God working because I just started this thing where I write a prayer down and put it in a container, so one day I can look and see how God was working after then. And before I read this I just wrote "God help me to be patient in waiting for a Godly man because I get so impatient and want love so bad!" And this just gave me strength even more! Thankyou Sadie!!

  • Lynlee says:

    It would be great if the whole world would read this!

  • Evette says:

    Hi Sadie,
    I love every word you spoke and I know that you will reach many young ladies and older ladies too. You are an amazing young lady and I can’t wait to see where God leads you.

  • Hailey says:

    It’s crazy how some things cross our paths. Was just talking about these very things to my best friend, prayed about them to our Lord & just came across your message. Thank you for this, endlessly. Thank you

  • Kayla says:

    O….M…..G!!!!!! This was amazing thank you Sadie!!!!!

  • Ashleigh says:

    Thank you Sadie for this I have been wanting to rush into a love that is not meant to be and this really put me in the right mindset to realize I need to wait for the right man. You are an amazing woman and I find so much joy in reading what you have to say! Thanks again Sadie you are awesome!

  • Grace says:

    Thank you Sadie. I will pray for you in hopes that your blogs will reach and teach many people about the love of Jesus and how believing in such a wonderful God will truly change your life.

  • Isabel says:

    You NEVER fail me Sadie ?

  • Story says:

    This was truly amazing Sadie, I love you so much. You are such an inspiration.

  • Caleb Davies says:

    Excellent post Sadie. A man that has a burning passion to serve and live for God in everything he does, is a man that will be able to love you how God commands men to love their wife (Ephesians 5:25-33). I will pray for you. That you would not be anxious, but that you would continue to trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:6-7), and that if it be God’s perfect will for you, that He would provide a man that loves you, but has a stronger love and PASSION for the Lord!!
    In Christ,

    Caleb Davies

  • Megan says:

    Hi Sadie! You’re messages are so amazing. I grew up in a very strict Catholic house and wanted to get out of the religion and how everything had to be a specific way. But I watched your video a few weeks back and it changed me. It made me want to get back to church, it made me want to pray to God. I want to thank you; for helping me renew my relationship with Him

  • Kelsey says:

    Thank you so much! This is one of the most clearest explanation of passion and is so relatable thank u so much again!!!

  • Melody says:

    This was good even for us married ladies to read.

  • Bdclined says:

    YES! GIRL, YES!

  • Debby says:

    Sadie, Blessings, You have been touching lives for some time now. Thank you for your loving transparency .

  • Delaney Morrow says:

    That was amazing. I admire that kind of passion and hope to have it too some day, I’ve started praying and listening to God and I thank you for helping me get here. Much love Sadie ❤️

  • Kandise Paige says:

    This is so encouraging and inspirational Sadie! Thank you for being a blessing to us all and for always letting your light for Jesus Christ shine throughout you daily! Praying for you always!

  • Macy says:

    Wow. Thank you

  • Diana says:

    I was in an unhealthy relationship as you were describing yours to be and we also ended it. It was after the relationship ended that I too startedlooking at things in a whole new light. I then started praying and asking God to bring someone into my life that He thought was perfect for me. I quit really going out and looking for my Mr. Right and instead asked God to guide me to him because I knew He had a plan for my happily ever after. God guided me to my husband and he is a wonderful man. We will be married for 13 years on August 21st and tofgether for almost 17 years. I continue to pray each and every day for God’s guidance so our relationship continues to grow in His love. Your message is wonderful. Thank you!

  • Mallory says:

    Sadie, words cannot describe how much this spoke to me. I have been living my whole life in the shadows of lies, but this post opened my eyes and challenged me to come out of the dark and find my life through the Lord. Wow, I am awestruck. This moment, the one that brought me across the bridge into a new life, I will cherish forever and ever. I can now experience a life full of happiness and serve the Lord in a way that the world always seems to ignore. Thank you, Sadie, for not only being the amazing role model that you are, but for instilling in me the knowledge of what life is like with God right beside me. God bless you and your family for changing the lives of people across the world. <3

  • I absolutely love your blog and I can’t wait to read more! You’re one of the people who inspired me to write and live for Jesus, my blog is lovinglikechrist.wordpress.com !!

  • I’m currently crying right now. Hi, my name’s Darby, I’m 15, and you’re probably my biggest role model. After watching your video of you speaking in front of Passion City Church, I was encouraged to make a YouTube channel to share my love for Jesus. But anyway, one thing I constantly think about is the guy I’m going to marry. I’ve always struggled with being boy crazy, so stepping back and deciding to not date anyone at school has been hard, but I know it’s for the best. I’m always worried that when I start dating, I won’t know what I need or how to act or anything, so it won’t work out. I’m terrified of marrying a person who isn’t God’s perfect match for me.. But your blog has just given me hope. Reading that one paragraph about what you need and want in a man just sparked hope in me, bc even at the age of 15, I still know what I want in the future, and that was it. I now know that that type of love is attainable and only through God will I be able to attain it. So thank you so much Sadie.. You have no idea how amazing and helpful you are. I love u so much 🙂

  • Melia says:

    I have never been in a relationship but I do sometimes experience being jealous of couples and sometimes doubting that I’m not good enough. This helped Remind me that I need 2 work on my relationship with God b4 and myself so i can b ready 4 my future spouse!! Thx Sadie!!??

  • Michelle Amaiu says:

    Hi, I really needed this so I thank God for giving you this experience so that you were able to share it with all of us. Thanks again!?

  • Rachel says:

    Absolutely wonderful!! You are a beautiful human, writer, and Christian! Thank you for sharing with us 🙂

  • Amy says:

    Sadie, the Holy Spirit just spoke directly through you to the exact situation I struggled through and am still struggling with today. Thank you for speaking truth and for giving me a renewed passion FOR passion. God is so good, He continually blows my mind away!

  • Abby says:

    Thanks so much Sadie! This is so helpful for me.

  • Skyler Mears says:

    Oh my goodness, love this! This post has been such an incredible blessing to read. So thankful to know that with the heartbreak caused by relationships, comes an amazing God, who has lots of love & a plan for every moment of our lives. <3

  • Kaitlyn Heeringa says:

    This really hit home for me. I just have gotten out of a relationship that sounded very similar to your past one and at first it was really hard for me because I thought he was the one and I really could not let him go. The more I focused on Jesus the more I saw that I didn’t deserve to be treated how he treated me. Now I’m so much happier living as a single, waiting for the man God is going to put into my life. Tha k you so much for putting all of this into words.

  • Madelynn Amick says:

    This inspired me so much… thank you for this and for being bold in your faith! Please never lose your fire for god because you encourage so many people, including myself ??

  • Chelsea Swisher says:

    Wow Sadie! This was so honest, genuine, and wholeheartedly written.
    YOU are an awesome role model. ?

  • Josie says:

    I loved loved loved your closing line!!! I’ve always kind of been afraid of the word passion, as in movies and in real life it always seems so messy, leading to mistakes or fights like you said. But to hear about harnessing your passion for the Lord is a really cool perspective. Looking forward to more on the topic!!!

  • Mackenzie B says:

    Mackenzie B.

    Hello My Dear!

    You have beautifully written a wise truth. I have been praying and journaling, since a young age, for my future husband. I bought a book a while back that goes through the basis, but also the depths of what I will cherish in a man after God’s own heart.

    I am 18 and I have not even gone into the dating world yet. What you said the most that stuck out to me (which all of it is amazing of course) was," He will help silence my fears, but will not accept them."

    As a girl, I know it’s hard sometimes to be confident in your own skin. For me, I’m most afraid of stepping into a relationship and not be able to give everything I have into it. Not in a way of giving myself to him, but being confident in my identity in Papa God.

    So I thank you, Sadie, for speaking from a place of love. Your words matter for more than you know. Papa is so proud ?

  • KM says:

    Wow…. this hit hard for me because I’m currently on a break with my boyfriend because we both decided we lost focus on god and we need to recenter who we are so we can be the best we can be. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to see him or have a conversation with him, and I feel like it just keeps getting more difficult as I keep going. This post lifted my spirit. I pray constantly for peace because I need it now more than ever and patience needs to be a really good friend of mine right now. I absolutely love this.

  • Miranda Robinson says:

    Thank you for being vulnerable, Sadie!! I needed to see this tonight. God is SO good!!

  • Anna says:

    This was so inspiring and eye opening! I seriously respect and admire your willingness to be vulnerable with us. Thank you for opening yourself up to us in a way that really motivates us to be better. Many blessings to you and your family!!! 🙂

  • Anna Thiele says:

    You speak truth that encourages me every time I see/read it to reignite the passion I have for God. To start back up my devotional’s or open the Bible and read or even just to pray. You have no idea who I am but you encourage me so much!
    I love that God is using you in so many powerful ways and I want you to know I’m praying for you. So many things can come up and make it easy to take the glory for yourself, or things that make it hard to want to continue. But I pray that you keep on keeping on and focus on the easy part, God’s never ending love and undenying faithfulness!
    Thank you so much Sadie

  • Peter Amendolare Jr says:

    We serve a sovereign and powerful God and there is power in the name of Jesus our God is for us not against us it’s the gospel that makes the way and its the power of Cross.

  • Shelby says:

    God bless you for being so open to all of your followers. I have been looking up to you for years, and I always struggle to remind myself that you are still a human, you still make mistakes, and you still aren’t perfect, despite how many times you remind us that you have just as hard of times as we do! This post was beautifully written and really shines His truth. Thank you for loving us enough to open up about painful times you have had. May we learn from things you have experienced, and may we glow with God’s beauty like you do.

  • Seven says:

    Awesome, sis.

  • becca says:

    i watched you at passion and i love to read your posts. Not only do you inspire everyone who hears you, but you have inspired me to do exactly what you’re doing and spread the truth & love of God to His people that don’t know Him or have forgotten their first love. thank you for helping me see my passion and my calling. love you, sister❤️

  • becca says:

    p.s. i’d love to contact you and talk more about what you’re doing and your hopes and plans as you continue to spread God’s love to people!! becca.edwards39@gmail.com

  • Mandi says:

    Thank you, Sadie, for allowing God to use your heartache to minister to others. I have a 14 year old daughter. I’ve been praying for her, and for the man, that she will one day marry. I asked her to subscribe to this blog. I didn’t have to remind her to read it. She came to me and told me all abt it. She was so encouraged! Thanks, again! God bless you!!

  • Hillary says:

    Having come through a situation that was similar in so many ways I know that it can be so worth it to let go of a relationship that isn’t right to make room for whatever God has planned. It’s hard to let go of something that you’ve already put so much into, but the day I decided that God knew better than I did, I was finally able to start getting past the sadness I felt from losing my boyfriend because I knew I was making room for more positive relationships. Thank you for sharing your experiences Sadie!

  • Chelsey Chaffin says:

    Awesome girl! I love this so much ❤️

  • Morgan says:

    Thank you Sadie for the advice, I want to find a man who knows God’s word and all the characteristics of knowing God and having a beautiful relationship. Even if It takes me all of high school to find him because I’m only 15

  • Lisa says:

    Preach it Sadie! Thank you for speaking out, following God’s call in your life and encouraging others! What a blessing it is! Thank you Sadie for letting Christ shine through you and continually use you. You encouraged me as well as so many that have read this blog. I can’t wait for the rest of the days to come, with everyone else’s posts too! What a brilliant idea to do this! Love ya Sadie girl 🙂

  • Hannah borges says:

    Thank you for writing this Sadie, I’m in a relationship right now and some of the things you described gladly were things that I see in my boyfriend and it made me smile to know that we don’t have a love that is selfish and inconsiderate. But this has also illuminated the fact that we need to refocus our attention to God in our relationship. Thank you for opening your heart again, you are making a real difference in the world. <3 – Hannah Borges

  • Rachael says:

    This is amazing. I thought I was the only one that prayed for my future husband. Keep the posts coming! ?

  • Michaela says:

    This. Just this. So many beautiful words and truths that hit so close to home. It may be 3am but I know the tears that are streaming would be just as real in the afternoon. Wow this woke me up.

  • Patty says:

    Such a beautiful post Sadie! I met my husband at sixteen and the crazy love you described was us. BUT GOD is one who redeems. We both had to struggle to get through and have been together now over 10 years but we both had to be willing to learn to love God first and allow for him to teach us to love one another. It’s empowering to see a younger person like yourself stand so firm in your faith not wavering in your standards and wait for the best that God will bring your way! It’s an example I hope my kids will follow. You know the promise and you seek it. I cannot wait to see how He unfolds your story! If you continually seek Him you’re going to be a force for your generation and that is amazing!

  • Addison says:

    Love this ❤️❤️❤️

  • Your are so right that we swapped real Love with a substitute of Love. A substitute is not the opposite but it is off the mark, because it is off a little, people are mesmerize by it. People behave like animals in life and death struggle in the fight or flight with adrenaline rushing through their system. God has a better plan! God Bless. – Dale Robertson

  • Abby says:

    Sadie your words reminded me how important it is for my boyfriend and I to not stray from the path God has for us, but to stay founded on Him. We recently discovered together that we started to create our own path, and are working to come back to Gods paved road. Thank you for the reminder of what true love is. And I absolutely loved the idea of praying for my future husband. Thank you for letting God use you!

  • maddy green says:

    thank you for sharing. my boyfriend and i broke up last night and this really hit home. there is so much truth in this and it really helped me. thank you so much.

  • Kate says:

    I truly appreciated this , luckly im not in that position with my husband but hes in the military and we are sparated from each other on and off till he comes home from feilds or deployments , this helped me some for our relationship and making it better and stronger . Thank you for what you shared it really inspired me and i know it did for several others too 🙂

  • Tiana says:

    I definitely needed to read this. This just reminded me about the importance of Christ in your telationships to help them thrive.

  • Lillie says:

    Sadie you really opened my eyes in this post. I now realize that live has a completely different meaning that I thought and I need to dig a whole lot deeper. I kind of wasted three months on the worst relationship if I’ve ever seen one. He was unfaithful and talked about other girls and how pretty they were and it made me feel awful. Now you have made it clear, it’s not like that with God. His eyes are on us all the time and he always loves us and purists us but we have to take the step and do the same and love him as he loves us. Every night my mom and I pray for my future husband and I thank you for making that point that God has someone so perfect for us in store that we need to have no worries ! Thank you so much for your words Sadie , you’re a true inspiration in my life !

  • Ellie says:

    My boyfriend just broke up with me, and by reading this my eyes were opened into how my relationship was going and how it wasn’t going right. The lord put this man into my life for me to learn and to help change me for the better and I am so grateful that i realize that now.

  • Megan says:

    This was top notch. Thank you. ❤️

  • Annie says:

    You are amazing Sadie! That was one of the best things I have ever heard!!!! So good!!

  • Anna Parks says:

    I feel like this is my relationship right now. Thank you so much for this!! God really opened up my eyes!

  • Madison Pearson says:

    I recently went through a relationship that I had to end because the love of God was no longer the center, it was lust, and desires of the flesh, rather than the desires of God. It was all a incredibly hard thing to realize, and to go through. Reading this gives me peace. It’s a true testament proving that I’m not alone. Everyone goes through these kinds of things. Thank you for sharing. Keep posting, I know God is constantly smiling and laughing with you. See you in Lake Charles!

  • Hannah veloz says:

    Sadie!!! This was great of course everything you say brings tears to my eyes. Recently I had broken up with my fiancé that I got engaged to recently. I am 18 years old and he was the love of my life , and still is. I pray every day for him and us and that somehow in Gods mysterious way we will find each other again. But by losing the love of my life I found again the other love of my life, God. I always knew God since I was a kid bc I grew up Christian private school and I was always and stil Lam always in church and I always had a relationship w God but when I was with my fiancé he was my everything and I put him above all else in the world he was like my God because when I love I love so hard. And he was in the army at the time we broke up but I met him back in high school. God has become apart of my life now more than ever before. He has shown me so many things that are important and I have grown and changed so much with him just in the span of two months. I don’t know what Gods plan for me is but I pray every day that if it’s this man he brings him back to me because honestly Sadie every time I think of him , even the slightest memory makes me wanna rip my heart from my chest bc it’s the hardest thing . In my own thoughts I feel like he was the one for me but God only knows. So all I can do is pray about it. I’m so glad I found you though Sadie! I am so glad I binged watched duck dynasty lol & that everyone in school and even in public used to ask me if I knew you because everyone !!! I mean everyone said I was your twin lol! Fine by me! Thanks for listening to me xoxoxxo – Hannah veloz

    Thank you.

  • Alyssa Glenn says:

    Praying for my future husband is so important to me. But thank you for giving me a new perspective and new ways I can pray for him "He will never give up because His eyes are on God". Being almost 20 and never having dated before, this gave me a Christ-filled perspective on relationships. Thank you for your vulnerability, Sadie. Jesus is using you in a mighty way. Keep pursuing Him, girl.

  • Minie Garcia-Meeker says:

    You are a lady after God"s own heart. Thank you for sharing your vulnerable moments and the lessons you learned from them. It also shows your graciousness for you did not put down the man who hurt you, instead, you still blessed him. True accoubtability and owning your side of the street.
    I love you and so proud of you. I hope you don’t mind, I even named my dog ?

  • Michaela Brown says:

    So much wisdom in someone your age. I can only hope and pray for this much wisdom when I’m 20. Loved this so much and desperately needed to hear some truth. So thank you Sadie??

  • Maggie says:

    Much love Sadie, thanks for being such an inspiration for this generation of Christ followers.

  • Preston Overstreet says:

    Sadie, you are such an amazing young woman, so much so that you are the spitting image of Jesus! You’re a woman after God’s own heart, like a previous comment said. I’ve taken notes over this lesson and it’s helped open my eyes to so much more! Thank you times a billion xoxo ❤️

  • Courtney Bosold says:

    Beautifully written, so many time when we are in seasons of singleness it can be so hard to push through and not dwell on what you don’t have and what others so, I LOVE your comparison to the chapter in 1st Corinthians. It’s a gorgeous way of encouraging others to pray for the partner God has created for them and a vivid description of what we as daughters of God deserve and should be expectant of. Thank you for your heart and your spirit. I am so grateful you share both with the world!!

  • Yessenia Barrera says:

    Wow Sadie, from watching you as a young teen to how you’ve grown now, shows the "seeds" that have been planted in your life and Jesus IS LORD OVER YOUR LIFE! You are an inspiration, and wonderful example to the younger generation. May the GOOD LORD bless you as you continue the "good fight" .

  • Ashley Stein says:

    This surly touched my heart, Sadie. Thank you. The words you wrote are just what I needed to hear in a long years worth of doubt that the man I "love" doesn’t know what love is. I pray that I find someone who does some day.

  • Rhonda Robertson says:

    Wow!! Beautifully written and I can feel it as I read it that it was straight from your heart. I want this for my daughter. She is 23 and has been on and off in a relationship since she was 14. They have broken up so many times and have been through so many arguments and then find their way back to each other. I want this for my son too, he is 25 and single. I am sending them this article and your blog. Thank you so much for speaking out about such personal things in your life to help others. I thank God for you and others that are lead by the Lord to reach out like this.
    ??????

  • Kayla Brown says:

    I wish I would have read this a long time ago. So many years I spent in unhealthy relaltionships. But guys, we have to know our worth. God sees us as his precious child. Jesus literally thought you were to die for. Do not let any boy make you feel unworthy. Now I am engaged to a man that treats me as I know God would approve. My family approves, he works hard, and he will pray with me. He believes In God my savior. I am blessed. But I was lost before and I made choices and mistakes that I so would take back now. I realize now that I am worthy. I’m a child of God and love Is so much more than the world depicts it to be. Read the chapter Sadie talked about and put your name in the verses. Are you doing the things that is describes love to be. Is your significant other doing those things for you? This is where actions speak louder than words. Live out loud for Christ.

  • Kara says:

    you inspiring angel you

  • E. Shaina Bradley says:

    Wow. What an amazing post! You are wise beyond your years, Miss Sadie!

  • Michelle Davis says:

    I Cannot Wait to show god to my daughters (16, 13). My oldest, Sarai, has gotten the priveledge of seeing you at Wintrr Jam I believe in Lexington! I am almost forty years old, married for 20 years, and a mother of three, but your words incited a Passion even in me!! The Scriptrue speaks of Dry Bones, and my Goodness, I believe that is what I have been living lately! Dry Bones! And God speaking through you, Sadie, has awakened something powerful…and I hope tonshare it with my husband AND my children. We have prayed for their future mates since before they were born. But it is HARD in this Instagram, "how many likes do my selfies get" age, to protect our children’s precious and tender love for the Father, and discourage our love for self that we ALL struggle thru. Thank You, sweet daughter in Christ…for seeking Truth above comfort. And for sharing your amazing words and Spirit gift with us!! My prayers will be lifting you daily, that the Lord encompass you round about with a hedge of protection, to keep away the enemy who would try to silence His truth!!! Thank you, dear!! For speaking LIFE and giving young ladies everywhere a look at reality, truth, and being an example for them to follow!!!! Blessings on You!!! Michelle Davis ❤️

  • Britt Emminger says:

    I had no idea, but this is exactly what I needed to read at this point in my life. You should consider creating a guide for us ladies to read our Bible daily focusing on who we should strive to be in our future endeavors and building relationships with others and of course Jesus. I know a few other Christian bloggers have done so, and it is an even more intimate way to connect with your readers and truly touches the heart like this post has done.

  • Sheryl says:

    Sadie- you are wise beyond your years. I know that’s only because of the Holy Spirit working in you and because of your willingness to follow Jesus. You obviously are in The Word or you would not be in tune with God’s will or have the ability to discern. May God continue to use you as you minister to so many young girls. Thank you for speaking the TRUTH in love.

  • Bella says:

    I have dated in the past… but I soon realized that after dating an atheist who made jokes about Christianity, and being taking advantage by this "attractive football player"… (lol) I have SOO learned that I need to pursue God, NOT a boy friend. I make lists and write all the time about what I want my husband to be like. After seeing what Sadie said about her husband future husband… it left me in awe. I’ve heard countless times about what type of man I "should" be with… but it never quite clicked like this. With that said, thank you for sharing your personal story Sadie❤️

  • Katie says:

    I was in a very bad place when I saw this blog. Having no idea how enlightened I would become I found myself reading it over and over again. I am most thankful to you, Sadie. Your words always without fail bring out the best in me.

  • Brittinee says:

    Thank you for these words! I was in a relationship like one you described at the beginning of the post, I had always had that gut feeling inside my chest that this was not who God had planned for me to be with, but the way the world shows us love I wanted to hold onto it. Until I was broken up with, I did not realize how much God needed that to happen for me to begin to focus more on his word and redirection of my life. Your blog post has reassured me that I am not alone in this. There are so many girls out there, like myself, that need this reminder. God is the one who is writing our love stories and we need to stop trying to grab the pen. Focusing on his words during times where I feel lonely are what is making me strong and happy to be single and praying for that man God has lined up for me.
    Thank you for sharing your words. Exciting to have a blog that I can read that allows the words of God to flow through it and not the words of the world!

    • Same here! Even though I had a painful breakup, it made me put so much more trust in God and helped me incline my heart towards Him who is always faithful and comforting. 🙂

    • Bayley S says:

      Thank you, for taking the worlds I didn’t know how to type and putting them into a comment! God bless you, Brittinee!

  • Kathleen says:

    I just found out that the guy that u thought truly cared about me was in a relationship. While we were never together beucase he was afriad of messing up a friendship I stayed and let him play me. Now reading this I’ve seen I don’t need him he isn’t the one God has picked out for me and I just have to learn to be okay with that. I know that I’m now going to be getting stronger without him.

  • Amazing! The second to last paragraph is a wonderful description of the kind of love I seek in my future husband. Thanks for being so raw and deep with your story. God bless. ❤️

    Sadie, you are so beautiful! I loved watching your awesome family on Duck Dynasty what an amazing family you are a part of, I really liked that you all sat down to eat dinner and prayed first!!
    Keep sharing your faith, I admire your for that!!

  • Alyssa says:

    This is such a great reminder of what love should look like in all of us❤️ Thank you Sadie and thank you for your passion in wanting to encourage us girls to dive deep into Gods word and uncover the truth that is there behind the worlds lies!

  • Destiny Briann says:

    Oh my gosh! You are such an inspiration to me! You constantly blow me away with how strong your faith is! Thank you Girly!!!

  • Bayley S says:

    A week ago from today, me and my boyfriend of only about 2 weeks ended things. We dated all throughout the summer, since May. He literally was the answer to so many prayers. He was such a true blessing and I really mean that. The relationship was my first. I’d never dated anyone before. (I’m 19.) The relationship taught me so much about myself and the power of Jesus within me. I never knew I could have so much of an effect on the people around me. Throughout the relationship, I prayed so much. Not more than I used to because I pray A LOT, but I was praying about different things. About God’s Will for us, His timing, His strength, our strength in Him, our growth, ourselves, our health, our safety, our relationship. Now that it’s over, it’s like everywhere I turn someone’s blog I follow, or something on Pinterest pops up about praying for your future husband. I pray about my future husband. But it seems like since the break-up, God is trying to send me a message and I have no clue what it is. The relationship was truly and honestly a blessing. It brought me a lot closer to many people and I even made new friends through it. It’s hard, but I feel like God isn’t finished with us. That’s what everyone keeps telling me is, "You never know. God might bring y’all back together." Even my ex told me that. I’m not going to lie, it’s hard. But I am strong in the Lord. Through all of it, I’ve grown and my faith has been strengthened. I honestly feel so happy because through every bit of the relationship and even through the breakup, I felt God with me and holding me. 🙂 God’s love is amazing and He will always be with me. No matter what. I love JESUS!

  • Hannah Thomas says:

    Thank you Sadie for sharing your story; reading it brought me clarity. The Lord is absolutely amazing and His love for us is so uncomparable and undeniable, but in times we forget that. We have to remember that He writes our love stories not ourselves because if we try to write them the ending chapter is not going to be a happy ending. Thank you!!! God Bless!!!

  • This is such great word. I was married while living under false passions and am seaking God during a seperation as I raise my 4 children. It can be such a struggle. Thats why it i essential that young warriors such as yourself fill the world with Gods truth and word. My 15 year old is learning and growing through my mistakes and I know this next generation is such a strong one that God is using in a mighty way to let truth be heard so that more will experiance true love. Beautifully written Sadie.

  • Bethany says:

    Man oh man I needed this today! I’ve been walking through a season similar to the one you described, so this truth is the encouragement God wanted me to receive today – thank you!

  • Cheyenne B says:

    I am 20 and have never been in a relationship. I have always been independent and ultimately wanted to get through college before getting serious with someone. For years, I have been praying for my future husband and that when it was in God’s timing there would be no doubt in my mind he was the one. I am almost 21 and people are always asking me, "Isn’t it about time to meet some people, put yourself out there?" I simply tell them that I’m not meant to "put myself out there", God has a plan I can’t see or even imagine. I know that God will send me a godly man that has the same PASSION for our Heavenly Father that I do and that together we can share a passionate pursuit and grow in that pursuit together!

  • Hallie says:

    This is an amazing post, Sadie. I have always been the girl that when my friends are talking about their boyfriends, I can’t pitch in. I have decided to wait on having a boyfriend until my life is where I want it to be. I trust that the Lord will lead me to the right place and time, and I will meet the man I’ll spend the rest of my life with—notice Man. Not boy. :). He knows more than I ever could. He knows when the moment will be. I am content to wait and live the life He gave me. Thank you for this post. ❤️

  • abby says:

    Thank you for this Sadie, you are such a role model in my life. You inspire me and I am glad that you share your love for God in a world that hides from his truth.

  • Naomi says:

    This is beautiful!!

  • Erica says:

    I love this post and it reminds me of one of my past relationships. After noticing that relationship after relationship wasn’t working out I decided to stay single and to let God direct me to the man He wanted me to be with when He wanted me to be with Him. I prayed for my future husband constantly because I knew who ever I married would have to go through a lot of walls because of what all I had went through with my previous relationships and 2 weeks later I met my husband and it was like a light bulb went off when I saw him. God told me he was who I was supposed to be with. He pursued me constantly and was always showing me true love. It is definitely worth waiting for the man God has chosen for you.

  • Natalie Garvin says:

    I went through a difficult breakup at the same time that you and Blake did, and I just remember the Youtube video that you posted, which brought so much comfort to me by the way you were handling it. It inspired me to prioritize and make sure that I was seeking to grow my relationship with God first, because He is our "first husband" and a girl should never settle for a guy who is not seeking the Lord before the relationship. Since then I have never felt closer to our Heavenly Father and I continue to be inspired by you, friends, and family to become a better me so that I can be a Proverbs 31 woman for my future husband!

  • Lily Crosby says:

    Yes! The world says and puts pressure on us to have a boyfriend or girlfriend when really we shouldn’t be pursuing a boyfriend or girlfriend but we should be pursuing God. He has much more in store for us! Thank you for sharing this inspirational message, Sadie!

  • Gabby says:

    This really spoke to me. The part about jealousy and pain not being healthy not only applies to me with romantic relationships, but also just common friendships. I recently just ended a friendship with a lifelong friend bc I allowed hatred to grow in order to preserve the friendship. I lied to myself in order to save a friendship filled with hided tears, pain, anger and jealousy. This reading gave me the courage to speak up for myself and lean on our Savior. Thank you Sadie!!

  • Rhonda says:

    How do you feel about dating someone who is Father approved? Do you get the people who wish to date you to ask your father’s permission?
    Also, do you practice the biblical principle of guarding your heart?

  • Hannah Crawford says:

    This is so on point and so fantastic! I just want to say that as a 22 year old newly wed who has been through the ringer when it came to relationships before my now huaband, you have put into words everything every young girl strugles with! My dating history was so dramatic you could have made a movie out of it.

    From age 14- 18 I was in a relationship that was what I wanted not what Christ wanted. I was so stuck in the world of wanting that euphoric feeling and the movie romance that I didn’t listen to God. I put my self through so many nights of tears and emotional pain that I felt lost and incredibly sad all the time.

    When I finally broke down and stopped trying to run my own life I felt God moving in ways that I had so missed. The breakup was not easy by any means, but I knew even in the hard times that I had Gods eternal love and that was all I needed to lean on.

    Looking back at how my life has played out, I can see how perfectly planed everything was. My now husband was under my nose and a friend for so long. There was a time when I was scared to date again after that long relationship, (10 months of telling Aj that I would never date him), but again I was trying to control my life not letting God lead it. But once I came to my senses (again) I aloud myself to see Gods glory and this amazing man he had placed in my life. I fell MADLY in love with my Aj. And I knew our relationship was so different and so real! Our day to day lives are not a movie and perfect, its full of laughter, bickering, love, finguring things out, and more love. Our "fights" are not painful or end in uncontrolable sobbing. They are things we confront and get past. But the most beautiful thing about AJ that sets him apart for me is that he leads me. He leads me like God commands of him. He listens and values my opinion, feelings, and our love.

    When you come to the point in your life where you lay your worries of dating and finding "the one" down, God will do amazing things. He will completely take you by surprise and reviel his perfect plan.

    This is such a great topic for women of all ages and I will be praying for all who share and read!

    I just recently went through a breakup, and let me tell you it has been ROUGH. But this really opened my heart and made me realize what’s important and what true, passionate love is really like. This was such a blessing, thank you for this!

  • Maci Bogdonovich says:

    Thank you so much this Sadie. I was in a similar situation you were in but different. I’m 13 and entered into a relationship. The boy wasn’t saved and I only saw in him what i wanted to see. I knew what i was doing was wrong but I was so self centered so I did what I wanted. Then one day he said something to me about my body and I realized what I was doing was absolutely wrong. I broke up with him which was hard but I realized that all I need is God. He helped me through all of it and the drama that came along with it. I still get hate from the whole thing but I rest in the peace that it doesn’t matter what a boy thinks because in God’s eyes I’m priceless. Also I’ve decided not to even consider dating anytime soon. I need to just wait on God’s timing and if it’s his will, he will send the man that has everything you described. Thank you again!!

    • Alyssa Auburn says:

      Just read your comment and I can’t believe you are only 13! You are on your way to being just like Sadie, girl! The maturity that I saw in your writing and the choices that you mentioned speaks levels about you. May God bless you and let you be a light to that boy and all your friends… <3

  • Laurie Elliott says:

    Wow. The Lord was gracious to allow you learn all this at an early age. I applaud you for listening, and then acting on what you knew to be true. Your future relationship will be a great deal stronger and more joyful. I love your prayer. Well done! Taught me a thing or two and I’m in my 50’s and married 30 years! Appreciate your witness and testimony, Sadie. <3

  • George Dirling says:

    I have always (naively) felt that no other person on this earth has experienced the same euphoric feelings that my ex and I felt for each other. I literally thought we "loved" each other more than anyone else on earth has. We never even crossed physical boundaries, so that was all the more reason our "love" was so strong (in my head). It has taken years to heal and realize how common what we had was – the feelings and all. This blog is one of the first times I’ve ever heard that what we had was false, and not something to actually strive for. I’m a 23 year old happily married woman, and I still have days where I yearn for what I had with my ex. Why?! I always thought that I just needed time to heal. When time didn’t heal I thought I needed closure. When I couldn’t get closure I thought I would just have to settle. Why have I been chasing and accepting all of these lies?! Why have I not given this to the only One who can free me! Sadie, thank you for your obedience to the Lord. Thank you for your vulnerability and willingness to speak truth and life in the midst of death. The Lord has and is using you to breath life back into people. I love your heart.

  • B Lee says:

    Sadie this touches my heart! Everything you are writing is what I am talking through with my 16 year old precious daughter. If a relationship is too hard in the beginning, jealousy – insecurity – fighting, it will only get harder. When I hear – I thought I could change him – ugh! A good relationship will make you better – a true team built with Jesus at the forefront. God already knows your heart and your plan! Thank you for sharing. (PS when your heart heals I have the most amazing young man with a very similar background I would love for you to meet 🙂 He has been healing for the past 2+ years from a broken 2 year relationship.

  • Ginger Brown says:

    You are wise beyond years and rich beyond measure! Blessings!

  • Maegan Gunner says:

    WOW. This is absolutely wonder-filling. Definitely taking all of this to heart and ready to deepen my relationship with Christ and in Christ. I find His peace when I stand in awe of His love and this is such a beautiful reminder of that. Thank you!!!

  • Charlotte Halley says:

    I love this! I am so excited to see that there is someone who is leading a god life and wanting to share it. I feel like God put this here for me to read and I’m so happy that I found your blog. I am eagerly looking forward to your next post.

  • Alyssa Auburn says:

    Wow. So touched and inspired by you Sadie! Though I am 17 years old and have never been in a romantic relationship, I take your words to heart and trust that Jesus is working in me so that I may be "the right one" for someone someday. Many notes in my Bible come from your posts. Thank you for keeping the Lord in your heart all these years. May He bless you with more followers who will read your blog and be inspired like I was!

  • Makennah Allen says:

    I broke up with my boyfrind of 3 years, and I can honestley say it has been the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through. Everything you said in this article was everything I’ve felt. The enemy still tries to remind me of that pain. Thank you for sharing your pain and your breakthrough, this helped me so incredibly much and made me feel like I’m not the only one. Your my honest role model!

  • Rachel Barnes says:

    How do you know when it’s time to call it quits in your marriage? I dont want to but I dont know how much longer I can take someone tell me they hate me all the time. I feel like I’m lost in my life. Like I picked the wrong guy instead of letting GOD send me the one he made for me. I’ve prayed and tried to hold my tongue when he tells me these awful things he says to me. Rachellbarnes87@gmail.com is my email. I could really use some advice I’m only 30 years old with no kids of my own and I just feel I’m going down the wrong path.

    • Stephanie R says:

      Rachel, it breaks my heart to hear that someone says that to you. I can’t give you professional advice but I do believe that it is OK to walk away from an unhealthy relationship. If your husband is open to counseling, I would try that first. In the end, he is breaking your vows by not respecting and honoring you. I don’t know you but God does and he created you in His image which makes you very special. You deserve respect and happiness. Find someone who can help and support you in this decision. It takes courage but God will help you through it!

  • Isabella Pando says:

    When I saw that Sadie was creating a blog I was filled with joy and knew instantly that I would love it. Reading this first post and browsing through the rest of the blog I can say with full truth that I definitely do love it. I am so glad that Sadie is able to speak with confidence about her beliefs, especially in such a modern world where the simplest of beliefs can strike a negative chord with someone else and cause a dilemma. Sadie is able to speak her beliefs while encouraging others to explore theirs without judgment but positivity which is something I greatly admire. Though I am not in a romantic relationship or looking for one, I loved the statement "You can go with the media’s version of passion, but I’m speaking from experience here when I say that even if it survives and the relationship lasts, you will be living for temporary moments of happiness and gratification instead of true joy." I feel that although this post is more focused on romantic relationships, this advice holds true for all relationships. I am learning more and more that I should surround myself with others that are focused on spreading joy and positivity rather than bringing negativity to the relationship and this post helped me grow closer to that belief. Thank you, Sadie, much love.

  • C JOHN says:

    So thought provoking and such great wisdom. Thanks for sharing this!!

  • Hadassah Beck says:

    This is a wonderfully written blog! I am 18 years old but have never been in a relationship! Certain personal situations put me in a place where I had to make a promise to God that I would not date a guy until I was through and had a firm grasp in his word. I have seen time and time again where I fall for a guy but I’m held back remembering this promise and that through that God will bring beauty. I think when we truly devote our lives to God he will bring so much wisdom to us that we can share with others. Sadie you’re an inspiration to me!!

  • Bett Reagin says:

    I don’t think you’ll ever really know how much the world appreciates you sharing your heart, wisdom, and love for the Lord. Thank you for this, Sadie!!

    I am the Kid’s Pastor at my church and we just shared this in our Facebook Group for Parents because it is SOO good. Beyond being a Pastor, I am a single young adult and so I 100% resonate with what you said as I struggle to navigate how a Christian (let alone a Pastor… that sure makes it complicated. Lol!) has a healthy dating life.

    It is so tempting to just give-up and give-in to the culture around us.

    Anyways, I wrote a blog post titled "When are you going to get married?", which pretty much sums up my thoughts… I’ll email it to you, but I don’t want to post it here and look like I’m just trying to get link clicks 🙂

    Sadie, this post really spoke to me! Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

  • Kisakye Rebecca says:

    Sadie!! Am so gratefully for the things the Lord brought you though because I get to grow with you and learn from you. Thank you so much for being vulnerable and sharing your story, I could have never imagined you going through this but if it wasnt for the Spirit leading you, I would have fallen victim of this and then question, what is wrong with me. God bless you!

    Sadie this is exactly what I needed to hear through my season of singleness. I went through the same thing when it came to facing what I thought "passion" was. Also to not be envious of when someone you once loved has a new girlfriend. this reached out to me so hard and I SO needed that encouragement!! Thankful.

    Saidie, you are my role model, my idle and a person that I can always look up to when I need someone to help me out when I feel sad. Watching your speeches or reading them always make me so happy and make me feel good, I care very close to god this past year even though my whole like I have been a strong Christian I am not a really strong Christian. From going to wendsday night youth group to Sunday night church I love seeing my friends and learning more and more about got each week with them is just the highlight of my week every time I go. I know that church is a place to let things go and worry about the Person that loves you the most. Going on trips with my church is so fun and is just witj so many people that feel the same as you. Also when I go to youth group my favorite time is to worship I love love love worship,makes me feel happy even doing the day at school when I’m stressed I can listen to worship music it makes me feel so good about myself. Love your devotional book and I wish you were coming to Detroit for live original!

    Truly amazing!
    After breaking up with my first ever girlfriend last year, I’ve been placing pressure on myself to take steps back and ask God what to do in his will and purpose for my life. He’s been shaping me in many different areas of my life and I’m truly grateful that he has spoken to me through your blog post!

    I pray to be that caring friend, that loving boyfriend, that soulmate for my future wife. I pray for God’s Grace to overwhelm my soul and my actions; because I get too anxious too quickly and I pray for his Peace to thrive in my life as he develops me into the man of God he wants me to be.

    Amen.
