Of course, that was only the beginning, and the Lord knit our hearts together in a sweet love that led us to marriage in June of 1981. Only the Lord could have orchestrated bringing us together at that time. It was a sweet love story that continues to today, for which I am so thankful.
I began reading in my One Year Bible this morning (I'm getting a head start on the year!) As I read the creation story I came to the second chapter in Genesis where God created Eve for Adam. It says in verse 22 "And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man." Adam didn't have to do anything. Eve didn't have to do anything. God brought her to Adam. God did that for me when He brought Dale into my life. If you're married, I trust this is your testimony too.
If you're still single, be comforted by the fact that God continues to bring couples together in this fashion. He doesn't need our help. He can bring two people together from the opposite ends of the earth. Single girls need to understand that they don't need to act flirtatious, put themselves in a place where single men are hanging out, or let everyone know they're available. If you believe in the sovereignty of God, you can trust Him to bring to you the one that He has created for you to marry. Today simply be where God wants you in His will. continue to serve Him and be faithful in living for Him. In His timing and in His perfect way, He can bring the right one into your life. You trusted Him for salvation, trust Him for the details of your life too!
