Before my Wouter and I ever talked to one another in depth, I knew he was the one God had for me. I had committed my love life to the Lord and asked Him to reveal my husband to me at exactly the right time… and He did! Not only did He show me who I would marry before we even knew each other, but He guided me through an entire year of prayer for my future husband before our very first “date.”
The day the revelation was born within, a tremendous internal conflict was born as well.
How could God call me to love someone knowing full well that my love had no outlet for an entire year? (Read why here) How could I love someone I hardly even knew? Someone who irritated me, someone who challenged me, someone who made my heart beat faster. How could I believe God for this tremendous promise when Wouter himself seemed totally oblivious of my existence?
How could I love a stranger?
But God said, “Just trust me.”
I believe that God wants to write more love stories like mine…
I believe He wants more of His children to “hire” Him as their matchmaker.
Believe me, God knows the best possible life partner for you!
I’m publishing all of my journal entries, written to both God and Wouter, from that unforgettable year. These words were all written before him and I spoke about our feelings for each other.
Yes, I feel kind of silly for sharing such intimate words but I believe that this message is important. Especially now in this dark time we live in. So…I’m willing to look foolish…for His Kingdom only!
