My husband and I love adventures. Earlier this year applied for something (sorry to be vague, we are still prayerfully deciding before share this information with others). If I am being honest, I completely forgot that we had applied because we applied so long ago. Well, we finally heard back. We are currently prayerfully deciding our next move. The impulsive, dreamer side of me wants to jump in and say ‘Yes! Let’s do it!’ But the Dave Ramsey, nerd side of me is thinking purely about the finances. (Anyone else out there the nerd? If you have done the Financial Peace University you know exactly what I’m talking about- if you don’t check it out here, it is well worth the time and money)
One of the things that I love most about my husband is that he is so intentional about pursuing the Lord’s Will for our lives. Yes, I want the Lord’s Will- but my husband is so good about looking to Him first. I have visions in my head of what I plan and what I expect, but this process is helping me realize how small my idea of great is in comparison to God’s idea of great! I’m learning that I have to let go of what I think my marriage and life should look like and start focusing on what He has designed them both to look like. Our marriage and life together has already surpassed every dream I could have ever imagined. It’s time to let Him continue designing and writing the script in our lives. His work is always the best. I want our lives together to be everything He designed it to be.
