let go and let God

Anyone heard the song A Thousand Years by Christina Perri? If not, I strongly suggest looking into it. The lyrics can be found here: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/christinaperri/athousandyears.html. One of my good friends went to a wedding and this song played before the bride walked down the isle. The more I listened to the song, the more I fell in love with that idea. A Thousand Years is the perfect depiction of everyone's favorite part of a wedding... the bride walking to the man she will spend the rest of her life with. The first verse explains all that is running through the bride's head as she is getting ready to turn the corner. Once she sees her soon-to-be husband, all the worrying, strife, and thoughts suddenly clear her mind. The chorus simply explains that their love is going to last an eternity. Woah... when you really let that thought sink in, it seems crazy. But the exciting part is that everyone has someone they are meant to be with for the rest of their life. One single person out of the entire universe is meant to match with you. We all question how we know who it is, how we are to judge if he/she is the right one, or how we know when the time is right. But I am slowly learning that God has a plan for all of us. He will put that significant other in our life when we are ready. He will be the one to let us know when the time is right. As scary as it seems, we need to let go and let God take care of that aspect of our life. So my challenge for all of you is to pray for your future spouse (or current of course). If we don't know who he/she is, who cares! Praying that they are living a life on the narrow path isn't going to hurt. Praying that they fall in love with God before they fall in love with you will only help your future relationship. It only takes a small amount of time to pray... so what are you waiting for?

...don't forget to "trust in the Lord & He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalms 37:34
