Much time has passed since I last posted about the happenings of my life. I am currently in the process of finishing up my last two classes for my degree. After I take those finals and one more test, I will be finished with the coursework for my BA in Communications! YAY!
One thing I will miss, will be my Interpersonal Communications class. I was dreading this class, especially after I read for my first assignment. However, as I continued on through this course, I have grown to love the thought provoking readings and inspiration that I have gotten from this class. I have learned a tremendous amount about myself through this course as well as learning about interpersonal communications.
But, anyways, the main thing that I wanted to blog about was basically just a little short testimony. I have struggled and wrestled with my faith for many years now, and I hope in the future to continue struggling with it because I want to own my beliefs, no matter what they turn out to be. I want to have chosen for myself where I stand. I have even given some thought to the existence of God. I have always believed that there is a God. Everything that I have learned has backed that fact up. I have never understood how people could claim personal experiences as proof of God’s existence. However, through some reading I did for my Interpersonal Communications class as well as some journaling I did in response to that reading, I have concluded that I have a very personal reason for believing in a very personal God.
You see, God gave me Luke. I will never ever doubt the fact that Luke and I were put together through divine intervention. I do not deserve Luke, and yet he is my husband, this is evidence of God’s grace! I needed Luke in my life, this is evidence of God knowing my needs. I have no doubts that Luke and I were meant to be together, this is evidence of a miracle. How many other married couples can claim the same amount of confidence that I can claim? Even if tomorrow our marriage drastically changed, God gave me Luke as a gift for today, yesterday and yester-years. I can claim that I am as sure that God wanted to me be with Luke as I am sure of my salvation. Luke has been such a blessing to me and a gift. A very precious gift that I cannot imagine life without!
Thank you Jesus! and I love you Luke!
I don’t think God could have picked a better man than Luke to be the man I look to as a representation of Christ as the Bridegroom. Luke’s gentle and tender faithfulness mirror that of Christ’s never-ending, deep devotion to His Bride the church.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (KJV)
