Stretching

The past two years have flown by. With it have come a myriad of changes. The biggest being, I got married in March to an amazing, godly man! I could not have asked for a better husband. He pushes me to follow Christ daily. He lets me be myself and still encourages me to grow. He reminds me that I need to be trusting God. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, I love him. Since we met, God has been stretching me in ways I didn’t know I needed stretching or that I needed it that badly. God’s been calling me to trust Him. In everything.

I’m the type of person who likes to be in control. Maybe you know what that’s like? There have been so many things in my life that have been out of my control, so anything I can control, I will, but when I do that, I leave little room for God to be in control. I have a nasty habit of doing that. So, it’s no surprise that God chose to stretch me.

Over the course of the last 8 months that I have been married, God has seen fit to challenge my beliefs about what He can and will do, my faith, my understanding of Him, my need to let go of the past and my insecurities, and my willingness to fully follow Him, as well as my willingness to not be the head of my household anymore.

I will go into more details on these things soon, but for now, I wanted to share this quote.
