God’s Way is Better Than Ours

Proverbs 16:9

A year ago, I had made the necessary phone calls, set up the appointment, to end what I felt was a unfix-able marriage. I had decided in my mind this is what needed to happen. I had a plan.

Although every time I was to go to the attorney or sign papers, I just couldn’t do it. Something would come up with our schedule, finances to pay the lawyer, etc. Then when I would sit down at night I found myself going over old memories, thinking of our children, and just praying. The cry of my heart was God change me. Change me, he did.

A year later, I know why I couldn’t. I am so glad that we can make our plans but God determines our steps. Today I sit next to my handsome husband. We share date night together, meals, and laugh with our family. We have worked hard on our marriage and a lot of forgiveness and healing has happened.

I am so thankful that every time I tried to move forward that small voice said wait. I am so thankful that God worked in both of our hearts.

If you have a decision to make that is weighing heavy on your heart, allow the Lord to direct your steps. I promise you He will show you which path to take.
