Over half a year in…

Now, over half a year into marriage, I need to give a word of encouragement to those friends of mine who are still waiting for that special someone.

1. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)
2. Trust in the Lord, and lean not on your own understanding.  (Proverbs 3:5)

I feel so blessed.  So humbled.  All I can give is my testimony.

God did this for me.  He gave me the desires of my heart.  A loving wife who is far and above all I could have hoped and imagined.  He really did it.

You can take my testimony for what you want.  You can claim it as yours or discard it.  All I know is that the testimony of Christ is the spirit of prophesy (Revelation 19:10)

I encourage you to receive it.  To hang onto it.  And to delight yourself in the Lord, because He has your best intentions at heart.  Even when you’re not perfect, and you stumble, and you have bitterness and hopelessness in your heart.  Keep hanging on to Him who loves you beyond all that.

The one thing I have learned about it all through all of this is so bold and certain I can declare it with utmost confidence:

God is in control.  Just relax.  God is in control, and has better plans for you than you can possibly imagine.
