A woman at church sat down next to me before the service started and told me that the Lord told her to share this story with me:
When I was going out with my husband we would fornicate and everytime we did I would go in the bathroom and cry. I didn't know why God would give me these feelings if I wasn't supposed to act on them. I was just so hurt and confused. Finally, I told my husband -- we were not even engaged yet -- that he either marry me or leave me. And he married me.
She sat back in the chair and smiled. By the look on her face I could tell that she was so pleased with herself because she had obeyed God and shared her experience with me.
Well, instead of getting offended and telling her to mind her own business, I returned the smile, gave her a hug and thanked her. She then got up and went back to her seat.
I wonder if the Lord also told her that my guy will marry me but the reason why we're not married is because I won't marry him. Something to think about.
First of all, I know God will speak to me through his word and through other people. I also know that he's been telling me to get married for years. That is why I couldn't get offended when ole girl shared this info with me. A few months ago I would have though. A few months ago I probably would have left the church because of it. That's how easily I get offended. Anyway, this is probably the third or fourth time the Lord has given this woman a word for me. I think she's a stalker. I think she thinks she's my own personal spiritual advisor. **deep sigh** I don't know what her deal is. She's harmless and I have enough wisdom to know when someone is yanking me. But it makes me wonder who else she is "advising". I mean there are some pretty impressionable people at church -- that's why they are there -- they are looking for guidance. And instead of looking to God and waiting on Him, they grasp onto anybody who appears to know what they are talking about. That can be dangerous.
Last night my guy and I were in the kitchen getting some ice cream and he was talking about taking a real vacation. I told him whatever he wanted to do was fine with me but I didn't want him spending a lot of money planning a vacation. He said, "I know, I don't plan to. Besides we need to save for the wedding." "What wedding?" "Our wedding." I shook my head and said, "We can just go to City Hall."
