The great man hunt

"The great man hunt" Continued...

Fear and faith cannot coexist, but imperfect humans still struggle with the truths of an Almighty God. Deep in their hearts, the four women sitting around me know God wants to give them a faithful husband while they walk this earth, but that doesn’t change the fact that another weekend is rolling around without the prospect of someone to share it with.

Knowledge of a future relationship, a promised answer to prayer is real, but hard to see, and even harder to hold on to: “It isn’t palpable,” they tell me.
