Ephesians 3:20 (MSG)

God can do anything,  you know – far more than you can ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!  He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

“It is the beginning of a journey I thought I would never have!”

When I met “my man”, I didn’t know he was gonna be my man until a couple of years later! We were set up by a few friends for a group outing, then only to find out we were the only ones that showed up, thus our first date! Little did we realize, it was a divine appointment. During that evening, there was a moment when he reached over to hold my hand, and I suddenly got that warm fuzzy feeling and even though I didn’t physically see fireworks I felt them inside! What in the world? Then the Lord spoke to me and revealed that this is the one he made for me. At first I was like, really? But then it made sense to me why I had those crazy feelings! That was one of my “ah-ha” moments! At that time and since that time I am excited to be with him, talk with him, love being in his arms! I was smitten, and Amazed!

From the time we got married to the present, we have been tested,  challenged, provoked, and been put thru many trials. Has it all been easy? No! Have we made some wrong decisions? Yes! Have we had to work hard at our relationship? Yes! Have we always treated each other right? No!…… But God!!!!

We had to allow God to take over our relationship to make our marriage great, no matter who we are or what we may face. Did God make it happen suddenly? Ummm, nope!

This I know, I love my husband with all my heart, mind, body, and soul! I love my Lord with all my heart, mind, body, and soul! And those warm fuzzy, fireworks feelings I started out with? They still exist within me today!

I love my life with my husband and what God has for our future!

God has shown me how amazing He is,

therefore I stay “Amazed ” with my husband!

Moral of this blog: if your searching for the answer to a good or great marriage, allow the Lord to show you how amazing He is, so you can see how amazing your spouse is!

In other words, Stay Amazed!!!
