When I first got divorced from my college sweetheart back in 2008 after 14 years of marriage and 19 years of friendship, I thought I’d never ever marry anyone BUT him again. I mean, I was believing God for restoration and knew He had definitely presented the opportunities, but for more reasons than one, that just didn’t happen.
I could barely think about going out on a “date” let alone, ever marrying someone else. Then it happened, almost out of nowhere. I heard God say “You’re FREE!”
“Free? What in the world are you talking about God?”
Free to move forward and move in your NEW DESTINY!
As I heard God speak, I began to cry as I realized it was time to release at a whole other level what I thought would be my future and the beautiful end to an Interrupted Life.
No matter how much I tried, no matter how much I prayed, no matter how much God clearly presented the opportunity, it appeared as though, the choice of another human was impacting my life in ways I didn’t appreciate nor ever imagined.
It was really time to be open to allowing God to send my Kinsmen redeemer, so that I could continue on and so that my family unit could be restored however God chose to restore.
I can count on 1 hand the number of men I actually decided to allow to meet up for coffee, dinner or an afternoon outing. Then out of nowhere, when I least expected it Boaz showed up.
As quick as he showed up, he then proposed and now, it’s hard to believe I’m about to celebrate 1 year of marriage.
In the next few blog posts, I’ll share more about my LOVE STORY and then I’ll move forward in blogging about THE TRUTH ABOUT Christians & DIVORCE and blended families …
What about you? When did you realize that God may RELEASE you to marry again?
