Four days from now, Jordan and I will celebrate our Second Wedding Anniversary, and our third year of being together. As I look back and reminisce over the last couple of years, I am reminded of some special moments I will forever hold dear to my heart.
First, I specifically remember having a heart-to-heart with my amazing pastor, whom I am fortunate enough to call friend. We were chatting about my desire to find the man I would spend the rest of my life alongside. There is much to the conversation, but the part etched in my mind and on my heart the most is a quote he shared by Maya Angelou.
“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.”
– Maya Angelou
For the next few years, God and I would wrestle over this quote and my eyes would be open to how AMAZING He is and how He will FOREVER keep His promises to us. I realized I needed to be seeking God’s heart and God’s way instead of trying to figure out my plans for my life. The man HE wanted in my life forever was perfect in His mind, but He needed to put my heart (and his heart) in the right place first.
