In the last two years there has been an underlying theme God has really been working on with me and teaching me about during our quiet time together.
I am His bride, He is my Bridegroom.
This truth has brought more comfort to my heart than I could ever begin to try to describe to you. There have been countless nights I start to feel discouraged about being single at a time in my life I thought I would have someone to call my husband. It is in these moments of discouragement that God has revealed Himself to me as my Husband. It is true bliss knowing I have a God in Heaven who loves me and pursues me and calls me His bride. This takes away the discouragement and allows me to embrace the deep joys of this special relationship.
Finding God to be my Husband has been my favorite. As I was reflecting on this, I realized something extremely encouraging. It is always so neat when God opens our eyes to understanding how He uses past events to prepare us for future events.
In 33 days I will leaving for Amsterdam to start a new journey with God. I am beyond excited for the opportunity He has prepared especially for me. With this journey, I will find myself alone a lot. I will be alone as I board planes taking me to a foreign place. I will be alone as I navigate my way through customs, crowded airports, and the streets of Amsterdam. The more I thought about being alone the more I became worried and upset. One night as I was praying God reminded me of Isaiah 54:5
For your Maker is your husband—
the Lord Almighty is his name—
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
he is called the God of all the earth.
I started to remember all of the benefits of knowing God as my Husband. With God as my Husband I am never alone. He is truly always with me, holding me by my right hand. This truth comforts me so much and it takes away my fears and worries of starting this new journey because I am not starting it alone, I am starting it with my Husband!
