More Than I Hoped For

Ephesians 3:20-21
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

I know that there have been times when I have driven everyone crazy with my whining about not having a date or about being single. But my primary prayer (other than “please make this happen NOW, Lord”) was that I not have to go through the whole dating scene. I didn’t want to have to worry about meeting new people and all the awkward moments. I didn’t want to worry about when or if they should meet my kids, or the impact that dating might have on them. I didn’t want to get myself into another bad situation (which I really tried hard to do at one point…thank You God for not allowing that to happen). I just didn’t want to deal with it. I asked the Lord to bring someone in my life that when I met him I would know that he is the one, and that he would know that I was the one.

I had just about given up on that prayer, but then I met Scott. About six months ago mutual friends of ours started trying to set us up, but it wasn’t until three weeks ago that we finally met. To say that we hit it off would be a major understatement. Scott is by far the nicest man that I have ever met. I feel like I have known him forever. We jokingly say that we feel like a couple of teenagers!

I have never had anyone that treated me the way he has in the last three weeks. I know people will lecture us about taking things slow (we joke about that, too) but I have never felt so comfortable with someone. He is everything that I asked God for and more. He feels the same way about me.

Before anyone starts making arrangements to attend our wedding, we aren’t engaged (yet..LOL), and we know that there are a lot of other things we need to know about each other. But we feel at home. We feel comfortable. We feel like God has definitely answered our prayers. My God has done more than I could have ever asked for, He has gone above anything that I could have thought of. I stand back in amazement of how He orchestrated our meeting, and cannot wait to see what He has next.  My heart is overflowing….I truly know what it means for God to answer exceedingly and abundantly above all that I asked for.

I can’t wait to tell you more about him….
