I’m so grateful to God that even as a young woman attempting to live in obedience to Gods word, I was able to look past what I thought was “my type“, and what I wanted in a “boyfriend”, in order to see who God had for me. When I met my husband, through Christ I was able to see the good in him, the kindness, the gentleness, and the love in his heart.
I can not imagine life without the love he has for me and the love and support he shows our children. It would have been tragic to know, I had given up on such a good man, and even more tragic to know that someone else now had what was meant for me, and that I willingly let him slip right through my fingers.
Ask God to open your eyes so that you may discover what or who He has for you.
1 Samuel 16:7 “The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart”.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Happiness is a gift from God.
