It has been 4 days since last I wrote. A major chapter in my life has closed and many more will begin. Someday, I will watch my sons as they stand by a minister waiting for their bride. And hopefully, someday I will get to see my grandchildren running and laughing as they romp through the grass. These are now the things I contemplate.
Once upon a time, I wished for my prince. Never truly believing it would happen and now my children are wishing for their brides. Praying and hoping that someday when asked; they will say yes and all will have a happy ending.
Wouldn't that be nice if life was so cut and dry. If every man could find the perfect woman and live happily ever after. Unfortunately, life is not that easy and sometimes we have to hit a wall before we find our true love. Love is worth it and sometimes we must risk our hearts to gain our reward.
If you have never known love, my prayer is that you will someday. Love is the basis of our existence. It is the fabric of God's creation and it sustains all life. Love never ends. So if you're out on a limb, trust in God that love never fails. It's not just a saying; it's a way of life. We must trust and we must love, in order to find our paths with Christ.
Whether you are waiting for your prince or looking forward to your future. Remember to trust and all else will fall into place.
Proverbs 3: 5-6 NIV:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him. And He will make your paths straight.
My prayer today:
May the Lord of light guide us on our paths. May He lead us to the person that will fulfill His will and give us the love we so need. Lord fulfill our hopes and help us trust in you. Keep us on a straight path and guide us as we learn to sacrifice and love one another. For all the women that are single, I pray that you would help guide them to their right mate and for all the women looking forward, You would help them make their mark on the future generation. Only You know the path each one of us is to take, please take hold and help us trust that You know what is best. Love us today and help us love others. AMEN
