Date #81

Obedience in the Waiting

Well ladies, I’m back and it’s Summer and also date #81.  I couldn’t be happier to be writing again!!! I feel like His word is like a fire shut up in my bones and I’m so very thankful.  It’s been a tough season all around and I want to use it to glorify God.  In October, I called off my 3rd engagement and this one was a heartbreak.  Truly, I am not the runaway bride or afraid of intimacy.  I felt called by God yet again to call it off and wait.  The Lord moved in me to give the ring back and it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.  Now I find myself at almost 43 years old and single again.  I so desperately desire to have a husband and I know many of you are in waiting with me too.  We can do this ladies!!! The wait will be so worth it because truly the best is yet to come!

In Psalm 130:6 The word says, “My soul waits for the Lord more than watchman wait for the morning more than watchmen wait for the morning.”  This is a good word for us sisters. How do you feel like you are doing in the waiting?  Are you anxious? Preoccupied?  Always looking for him or trying to be in the right place at the right time?  Ladies I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to do that.  Abba Father already has him handpicked out for you and will deliver him at the perfect time.  Trust me I have my days where I am a doubting Tom and I question His provisions for me in this area.  It’s then that I catch myself and say, Lord, I trust you completely.

I would like us to spend some time in prayer for our husbands.  This is one of the most important decisions we will make outside of choosing Christ.  Please join me in this prayer and read it aloud and with faith.

Dear Jesus.  What would it be like if I trusted you completely?  In all areas?  I desire that fully.  I delight in your majesty, beauty and magnificence.  I sit and rest this day in prayer and surrender.  I know you have someone so very dynamic and special.  I cannot wait until our lives are united.  Its’ going to be a precious union and we will be used in your Kingdom mightily.  I cannot wait to give him all the colors of my love.  Father please make us a powerhouse couple for you and your people.  Please bless my husband today.  Please fill him anew and afresh with more of you.  May he delight in your commands and precepts.  May His hands and heart be clean before you.  Father protect us, preserve us, keep us in your sheepfold and on your narrow path.  We love you Jesus.  It’s in your name I pray, Amen.
