Have you ever watched a public marriage proposal? They make me so nervous! I wonder how he will react if she says no. And not only that, will she say yes because she wants to, or because she wants to spare him embarrassment. I’m so relieved when I see her throw her arms around him with an emphatic emotion filled YES!!!!!
Today I shared on Proverbs 31 Ministries Devotions about some of the issues my husband and I faced early in our marriage. Because I entered the marriage relationship with unrealistic expectations, I ended up feeling disappointed and unsatisfied. I wonder if you have ever felt that way? If you have looked to relationship after relationship trying to get your deepest needs met. Or maybe you have looked to shopping, drugs, alcohol, success, or status to fulfill the deepest crevices of your heart – only to come up empty and alone.
I have discovered over time that Jesus is the only cure for our hurting, longing, lonely hearts. He is the only one who can satisfy our thirst so we will never be thirsty again.
Today, He offers you a proposal. He stands with arms wide open inviting you to accept His unending – unconditional love and mercy. And I’m on the edge of my seat.
Will you say yes…
You may be afraid. Can you trust Him? Is the Bible true? Is God just a bigger version of every person that has failed you? Will He fail you too?
You may have questions, and that’s okay. Every time we enter a relationship we take a risk. But a relationship with Jesus Christ is one relationship you will always treasure and never regret. Give Him the chance to come into your life and transform your heart and mind.
