The Man of My Prayers and Dreams


Maternity Picture

Over the past few years God has brought about one huge transition after another in our lives.  Let me say that in all caps: HUGE.  Family members have gone home to be with the Lord, illness has struck others, and various other burdens that have weighed oh so heavy on our hearts.  We’ve experienced  many days of change and new ways to rely on the Lord.  Every time I went to Mike looking for comfort he was quick to suggest that we seek God about what our next step should be.  We spent many hours in prayer seeking God desperately and as He always does, God came through.  Although I was often slow to embrace God’s leading I always found that His way was perfect.  Through trials we’ve drawn closer to Him, closer to each other, made new friends, been stretched out of our comfort zone and experienced blessings we wouldn’t have received otherwise.


My man is a believer in Jesus Christ.  He bears fruit of the Holy Spirit’s dwelling.  He has often prayed over me with a power that has left me speechless.  Recently I’ve began worrying over all the concerns that come with bringing a child into this world and raising her in the Word.  I even have some health issues that could possibly complicate labor and that terrifies me.  (I’m two days over my due date so if you think about it say a little prayer for me!)  Through it all he has been nothing but strong and supportive.  He has been my rock and soft shoulder to cry on.  I’m thankful to be married to a man who although he may worry, he has even a deeper faith in God.  He is God’s chosen man for me…and my chosen man before God.  I cannot imagine my life without the likes of Michael!
