Happy Independence Day, America!!!
Ever since my vacation up north, I’ve been sick or suffered with migraines. Finally got rid of the bronchitis and now it’s just migraine central. UGH! Let’s just say, the rainy season aka Florida summer is here in full force. Let the suffering begin. Ha, ha.
I recently read the book, “God, Where is my Boaz” by Stephan Labossiere. It was short and sweet and to the point. The author, who really got me thinking, told how God works in our lives, even when we are waiting on His plan for us. The author gave tips on what to do in the waiting time; but also how to effectively pray to God so that we can get answers and not just “assume” that the next man we meet is going to be “the one.”
So, I prayed to God that night, after finishing the book. Using a prayer to discover God’s Will for my life and if said man, whom I’ve known by name since November was HIM (again — as we know I have done numerous times over the last 8 mths) and received not only his NAME in my daily devotional; but also that I needed to dig in deeper to the word of God to get my “Boaz”. Talk about a break through!!!! YEAH!
Now, I pray daily so many times, but I never prayed for God’s Will before. I prayed for discernment, for proof of the man, for peace, for a time table; but not for God’s Will. Finally, I’m making progress. LOL!
I want to get so much closer to God and receive my blessing from Him. However, I also want to stay close to the Lord for the rest of my life. I know He has picked a wonderful man for me and I only have to wait on His perfect timing in order to get to the plan. I am committed to God and His will for my life. I hope I don’t disappoint Him.
One of the other things Mr. Labossiere stated in his book was that a woman should prepare herself to be with her “Boaz” and I must confess that I’ve been doing that as well. We need to forgive ourselves as well as those who hurt us in the past. I’ve done this already. However, fearing I will repeat mistakes or hurt this man, I’ve also been preparing to be a “Godly Wife” to my “Boaz”.
I’m not sure of the reality of it; but I’ve restructured my way of thinking when it comes to how to handle conflict, struggles, living with someone again and other things that will be challenging to a married couple. I have one more school year with my son before college and he has all adult children. Distance is an issue in the beginning. However, if it is God Sanctioned, there will be a way. I have faith. I trust God and I look forward to the Love Story he is writing for us. ❤
