Lately man has been VERY busy with work, VERY tired, and between my switching back to days while he is still working the night schedule, and his life being very hard we haven’t talked much. I miss him. A lot.
In the past I have had SUCH issues with guys pulling back as far as he has. In the past, I would have been convinced this was his way of getting out of a relationship. In the past, I would have pretended to seek God on this and continue to wallow in misery, sure that things were falling apart.
Today though- I feel Him tell me that the thought of man leaving is SO trivial that it should not even be on my radar. Today- he’s still working to make contact despite his busy schedule. He’s still making efforts to text in his few moments so that I know he’s not ignoring me. Today- my God assures me that I am so secure in His plan for me that it does not matter what Man does, for He is my security.
This. Is. New.
I have never felt this level of assurance from Christ that everything would be okay and THAT in and of itself slightly makes me feel off kilter- like something should feel drastically wrong but it doesn’t. Man is busy, but God is not. He knows exactly what He is doing right now and He has us both in the palms of His hands. He may eventually put us together, or He may have us go our separate ways.
In the meantime, I have never felt this sure that Jesus is in control of my love life and it is a WONDERFUL thing…. but allowing my mind to calm and be OK in this space…. I asked my family in family prayer tonight to help pray for that. So that I could rest assured in His assurance.
Is there something in your life that you are concerned about right now? For I can tell you that our God can take care of it! I know that He has the power to turn every situation around in the blink of an eye. Hold on to the One who will never let you go and find in Him the faithfulness that you’ve always sought for. Find in Jesus everything you need.
Amen, sister. I’ve been growing closer to a sister in Christ, though we are miles apart. I’ve ensured her that God has a plan and He has us in His hand. All the while, I’ve felt assured of God’s desire for me to prosper and to focus on Him alone, entrusting her and the miles of separation to Him. Your writing spoke encouragement and confirmation to me tonight. Thank you for sharing!
I’m so happy for you and thankful that God could use my words to encourage!! What a mighty God we serve 🙂
