This morning I walked into my kitchen to find my husband singing along to Smokey Robinsons- Cruisen. Now who doesn’t want to have a hot guy singing “Baby, if you want it you got it forever” while making you breakfast? I am not sure a morning gets much better than that!
There is a trending hashtag that says #RelationshipGoals that is usually accompanied by a romantic photo. I believe I have found the secret to achieving this “goal”. I realized if I wanted to have the relationship of my dreams, I was going to have to let God choose.
I have a Girlfriend that often quotes Dr Charles Stanley saying. “God gives His very best to those that leave the choice to Him.” I know I spent most of my life trying to make my own relationship goals happen the way I wanted them to. The truth is my own goals were way too small. God had so much more for me than I could ever imagine. When I finally surrendered my own desires, focused on God, and walked in obedience to Him, He gave me His very best.
“Delight yourself in The Lord and he can give you the desires of your heart” Psalm 37:4
This is not easy! It requires faith. It can be painful to be molded into the person God made you to be. It might look and feel impossible at times, but Gods word tells us, nothing is impossible through Christ.
“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed…Nothing will be impossible for you.” Mathew 17:20
My prayer for you is that you will stop comparing to the snapshots of someone else’s relationship and look to the one that created relationships. The one who loves you and wants to bless you in ways you never imagined.
