Corinne and Evan.
Papa blessed the day from beginning to end. He is so gracious!!
Corinne said that He is too kind.
This spoken by someone who is one of the most kind people I know!
Papa was delighted to bless the union of two people that He brought together.
The first time I met Evan he attended a Bible study at my home. Corinne had brought him along. As they sat across the room from each other Papa spoke to my heart and I knew that they were intended for one another.
Two hearts that passionately pursue the Living God.
How beautiful to see them become one.
I will be watching with great anticipation to see them grow together in their love for one another and of their God.
This precious couple treasure the Word of God. They take it to heart and reflect upon its meaning.
This brings to mind the first Psalm.
It speaks of the person who will be blessed.
They do not take counsel form those who do not follow their God. Neither do they participate with them in that which dishonors their God.
Instead they delight in His ways, paying close attention to what these truths are.
I love the picture that the third verse draws of the promise that awaits those who honor God.
"And he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yield its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither, and in whatever he does, he prospers."This is fruit and prosperity in the spiritual realm, which is where it really counts!
Yes, tapped into the Living God produces fruit and power and blessedness, which is fullness of joy, A truly satisfying life!
I came across a quote by Pastor Andy Stanley the other day which ties in here.
This dear, young couple will continue to be in my prayers. Right now they are taken up with their love for each other and reveling in God's blessings. A time will come when that will be tested."Without God's vision, you may find yourself in the all too common position of looking back on a life that was given to accumulating green pieces of paper with pictures of dead presidents on them."
Today's reading in Oswald Chambers "My Utmost For His Highest" spoke of our mountain top experiences and of normal life in the valley.
Those mountain top experiences are to be enjoyed, but hold lessons that are to be taken into the valley with us. There they will lend us strength that will be reflected in our lives.
Then the fruit will be abundant and the blessings beyond measure!
