Double Take

A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man would have to seek HIM to find her.

Wow.

Father, draw me close. Help me to draw strength from You alone. Hide me under the shelter of your mighty wings. I long to be so in love with You that nothing else matters. Help me gain that eternal perspective again.

I'm eager for the blessings of marriage if that's something You want for me. But until that time, help me enjoy my singleness. Show me that it's not a burden but rather a joy. Reveal to me the ways You can use me during this time.

I'm constantly amazed by the ways you continue to bless me. I certainly don't deserve it. You've given me so much. Thank you for loving me as you do. I know my human frailities hinder me but I know you use imperfect people; that way Your Glory can be seen. May I reflect Your glory! I pray people see You in me.

Father, please watch over the man I hope to one day marry. Keep him focused on you. Keep his heart and mind pure. Help him find confidence and strength in You so he can be the man of God You've created him to be. I'm excited to meet him, but I want our relationship to be completely in Your timing. Please guard my heart.

I really like this quote. The first time I saw it a pang of conviction went straight through me so deep that it hurt and I thought how neat it would be if this were true of Mark and me. It seems impossible but I have asked God to make it true in my life.
