I Do!

  Written on Sunday, August 7, 2011

Mom bought Josh Harris’ book “Boy Meets Girl” at a garage sale, and I’ve been reading that the past few days.  I had almost finished reading the fourth chapter when God got my attention… 

 
“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life
with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down;
Perhaps it crept to ones side like an old friend through
quiet ways; Perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose,
until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart it’s
pages betrayed the rhythm and the music; Perhaps…per-
haps…love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friend-
ship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from it’s green
sheath.”  ~Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

(This is the part that REALLY stuck out to me)
“Perhaps after all our worries and questions, we’ll discover
that all along God had the right thing at the right time for us. 
Perhaps His plan is more wonderful than anything we could
create by ourselves — whether it comes with ‘pomp and blare,’
or quietly, ‘like an old friend.’ 

Perhaps… perhaps… we should entrust our questions of
‘How?’ and ‘Who?’and ‘When?’ into His loving care.” 

I got alone with God.  “Lord,” I prayed, “I do.”  Immediately after I’d spoken that aloud I realized the significance.  Not only was I surrendering and entrusting these questions to Him, but I was also saying, “Lord, YOU are my husband, You are my All —I do!”
