3 Amazing Years

Yesterday was a special day for me and my fiancé. We have been together now for 3 years. 3 wonderful years of love, trust, commitment and companionship. 3 years in which I have learnt more about faith in God through him. And next year January we will be united as husband and wife.

It excites me to look forward to the future. It excites me because God has worked wonders in my life and his and it is an adventure hand in hand with our Lord. And I cannot wait to enter a new year, a new side of life with my love and with my God.

Looking back I have many, many things to thank my Lord about. I want to thank Him, because He did not give up on me. I want to thank Him because, He HAS a plan. I want to thank Him because He has blessed me with an amazing partner. I want to thank Him because He has taught me, through my fiancé about unwavering faith and hope.

I Corinthians 13 is one of my favorite verses. It brings to light what Love is all about. I treasure this “Love factor”. Love is God given and we are called to share it. Love helps us grow. It may bring us pain at times, but still it is a pure thought. For me, Love is very, very important. Love that is real and honest. This I continue to receive from God and I continue to receive from my husband-to-be. Love has never failed us. Romans 12:9,10 reads;“Don't just pretend that you love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other”. Love and honor go hand in hand. You cannot love someone without respecting them and honoring them.

Our relationship with God is like a triangle. I, my finace and our God are always connected. If one of us, if one of the sides of the triangle get weak, there are two others, two other sides to help raise the fallen.

I thank the Lord for these amazing 3 years and I thank Him because our future is secure; our futures are in His hand and led by His love. Troubles may come, but through His grace and His presence, we will overcome.

It also strengthens and uplifts my heart to see the wonder of HIs fatihfulness in answered prayer in your lives, in all that He has accomplished. Yes He has a plan and I rejoice with you and Sachu, as you take steps towards that wonderful God breathed plan.

Flavia Weedn wrote, “Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” I think you are blessed with the one that of the latter. Keep your chin up always and walk the way ahead with your everlasting love that you have found. Only time alone can prove any lasting relationship. To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship. Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. I get the impression that you are truly found someone truly take the bus with you....cheers to your life...

You are right to thank God for the good fortune of your "triangle." Many people are married to non-believers (myself included -- but bit by bit that seems to be changing) and miss out on the blessings that come with shared belief and a larger love beyond just the marital one.
