Ultimately, if we belong to Christ, then our lives are in His hands.
I might want to be married today, but I have to remember that I don’t see everything, I don’t have the whole sweeping, eternal scope of my life in view like my God does.
And focusing on what we desire but don’t have has such a way of making our lives turn inward, becoming very small and self-centered.
There is a whole world out there – a great and glorious God to discover and serve, people to love, adventures to be lived, battles to be fought, new places and ideas to discover.
It’s a good thing to desire marriage, but if we’re not married today, than there are obviously other things to focus on.
The Lord has been opening my eyes to things He is calling me to do now, and giving glimpses of what some of those things might be in the future. There are still a lot of empty spaces in these plans and ideas – questions about details and timing, among other things.
But do you know what I’ve been learning?
We shouldn’t limit God by mapping out exactly what we think our lives should look like, expecting Him to fulfill only the small things we desire and dream of – instead, why not open our hearts and lives to anything He desires to call us to?
That’s an adventure I’m up for.
