I’ve been married to my husband for 5 years and 5 months. And I thank God for each day we have been through together since then.
For years I closed my heart. I avoided dating. I proofed myself that I didn’t need a man in my life. I though that was the best way for not be sad because of broken heart. I was scared.
When I came to know Christ when I was at collage 2002, I was still afraid. I prayed for someone that He had for me and me for him. And prayed. And prayed. There was someone. But after dating for few months and prayed, we felt that we were not meant to be together.
We broke up.
I waited again. And prayed again.
This time I told God that I was all His. I didn’t care to be single for him as long as I got to do what He has called me to do, as missionary.
Looking back those years lead me to thank God for the waiting time & for the broken heart.
Today I am thanking God for my husband. It was worth it to wait for him. God opened my eyes to see these godly qualities and values in Dave’s life, not the worldly ones that every girl’s dream about.
Our marriage is the most beautiful unity in Christ Jesus. He loves God above of anything in his life. And because of his love to God, he reflects that love to me and our daughters. God uses my husband to teach me, to guide me, to help me and to show me who God is in our every day life. He sets example of trusting in God and how to walk in faith. God has been blessing us through him as a husband and a father.
God calls me to respect him, to love him as I love Christ, to help him and be strong for him. God calls me to be the mother to his daugthers. God has put me in his life and him in my life because He meant us to be together and serve Him together as family. It is God who unites us.
That is the beauty of marriage.
We are united by God.
We are led by God.
We love each other to reflects God’s true love.
We respect each other in Christ Jesus.
We are called to serve as family.
What I was looking in a man before I was not a follower of Christ, they are emptiness and useless. They are not what God has for me. But He led me to the one and only He had prepared for me, and prepared me for him.
How about you? What are you looking for in a man whom you will be living with for the rest of your life?
