Taste and See That the Lord Is Good
Updated: Jan 11
I said I would never get married, but God had other plans.
"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him." - Psalm 34:8
10 years ago, my heart was shattered after a horrible relationship. I was mad at God. I couldn’t believe He allowed me to go through such pain, embarrassment, and shame. I was angry that He didn’t save me. I no longer wanted to serve a God that would allow me such pain. At that point, I figured I didn’t need God or anyone else for that matter. So there I was, a brokenhearted, lost, single mom. I walked away from God... but thankfully He never walked away from me.
A few years later, I reconnected with God and I attempted to try that whole love thing again.
Fail after fail after fail. I often wondered - What's wrong with me? Why can't I get these relationships to work? At that point. I swore off love and was not even interested in the mere thought of marriage.
I was trying to allow God to lead me in only a few areas of my life, as opposed to ALL areas - including my relationships. After all my failed attempts to make wrong relationships work, God asked me, “Are you ready to try it my way?”, to which I answered “yes”. I gave up trying to do things in my own power, gave my broken heart to Him, and fully trusted Him to take care of my daughter and I...and He did. ♥️
After a decade of heartbreaks, finding my way back to Christ, and a WHOLE lot of growth, here I am - MARRIED! Married to an amazing man of God that not only loves me but also loves and has adopted my daughter as his own.
God challenged me to walk by faith, to trust solely in Him, and to trust the process. It was not always easy, most times I did not even understand the "why", but even when the road looked like a dead-end, I believed in God's plan. So I challenge you to do the same. Taste and see that the Lord is good. 🤞🏾♥️
