I was scrolling through the notes in my phone today and I found this. I’m so glad I write things down when I can, because this reminder from my past-self is right on time. 🙂
And hopefully for you as well! Enjoy.
Read psalm 33 tonight and it really hit me that my marriage will not be sustained by my power, and it can’t be formed by my power. There is nothing within my strength that can cause my marriage to miraculously be. I can simply go about The Lord’s work and be obedient, even in times of pain and confusion. I must simply be obedient to The Master and Creator. It is only by His breath and words that my situation can change. It is only by the prompting of God that I may be married. I don’t have any control over when that happens. And that’s a bit scary.
But Lord, I humble myself before you and admit that I have been wrong to think I could do anything better than you. Forgive me my pride and my haste. Forgive me my whining and my self pity. Provide for me more opportunity to sing and use my talents, Lord. Help me to focus my attention on that which is important to you. Help me to become-as women say- so involved in serving You that I don’t even notice a man until its too late- he’s my divinely appointed husband. Help my brain to rest. Help me to not try and figure everything out all the time. Help me to sit at your feet and listen. I have trouble listening, lord. I need your help!
