Here is what I wrote in the last chapter of my book, “Simply a Woman of Faith” which was published 13 years ago.
“God’s plan is perfect. I continue to pray and visualize my soul mate coming into my life. What I think about and thank about, I bring into my life. When I visualize, I materialize. I see in my mind’s eye the results and feel like it has already happened. I see my soul mate and I walking on the beach, having fun, and praying together. If God allows me to see it, I can trust he will bring it about. I’ll have to write another book to share how God brings my soul mate into my life. I know it will be a wonderful story, no matter what, and it will be worth the wait.
Many of you know that I waited 15 years after my divorce for my soulmate to “show up.” During those 15 years, I learned a lot about myself; as well as self-love, self-appreciation, and self-care. I learned what I wanted and didn’t want without always trying to please a partner. I learned to live alone and trust myself and my feelings. I learned to become my own best friend. I learned to trust God’s perfect plan for my life. I learned to speak up and set boundaries. I learned to say NO when I needed to. I know today the time was not wasted and it was a gift I gave myself.
Waiting didn’t come easy for me. I don’t like to wait. I often felt impatient and asked God, “Why haven’t I met him yet? What is wrong with me?” Here is the message I received from God when I asked “What is wrong with me?”
“I want you to allow me to give you the most thrilling plan existing, one that you cannot imagine. I want you to have the BEST. Please allow me to bring it to you. YOU MUST WAIT. And then you will be READY. I WILL SURPRISE YOU WITH A LOVE THAT IS FAR MORE WONDERFUL THAN YOU COULD EVER DREAM OF.”
I’m so grateful that I had the grace to wait, surrender, and let go of “my plan” because I thought I was ready. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had pushed to make something happen before it was God’s timing.
What are you waiting for and do you feel impatient as I did? Do you trust God’s perfect plan for your life or do you complain and have given up hope? Don’t ever give up on your dreams.
God is faithful! I was surprised by a love that is far more wonderful than I could have imagined.
God has a plan for your life and He has a plan for my life. His plan is for our good. It takes patience and courage to trust and believe He is working behind the scenes. Larry and I both had to do inner work to be ready for our great love relationship before we came together. It may take time, but it is worth the wait.
Here is a scripture that I have lived by for decades. I hope it comforts your heart as it has mine.
“For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
