Pampered & Loved

I want to praise my Beloved because He has given to me so much more than I could have thought or imagined. My heart has overflowed with His love and my life with His blessings.

Over the past few months, my Love has given to me everything I’ve needed and also desired. I had wanted to travel for quite some time but didn’t know where or how due to the money it requires to do so. He saw fit to make me a part of the Nicaragua Women’s Meeting which was an exciting thing in its own, but He also made sure all of my expenses were paid for in many ways and by people who love me. I can say I did not spend anything during my stay there.

Also, my Love provided a computer for me!!! I have been a volunteer translator for this ministry using a borrowed computer with limited access to it and a rare WiFi connection; however in order to bless me, He took it all away and even allowed a computer that was being given to me to get lost in the mail, all in order to gift me with the one I’m writing this on, because He loves to give to us beyond our imagination.

Not only did He give me all those blessings, but He also granted me another desire of my heart by giving me new friends with the same heart of longing for Him and with a passion for His presence. I can now just stand in awe of Him and His loving hand that holds and gives, to make us smile for Him.

I love how His love casts out all fear, and His Word came alive in my life when we went to a beautiful lake in Nicaragua, where all I could think about was to get in the water and swim the day away. And as I got to a floating dock a few feet away from the shore, I remembered a crippling fear of water that had stolen my joy for many years. But the thing is that I didn’t even think twice as I got in the water loving the warm temperature and the vastness of the lake. It was only when I was sitting on that dock that He lovingly reminded me how thoroughly He has removed the fear from my heart that it no longer crossed my mind and I was now free to enjoy His new gift in the sunset!

Another thing that He took care of was my car. It had been in a bad shape for a while and I knew the cost to fix it was beyond my budget, but I trusted in Him to provide for this as well. He did, of course, in a most unexpected way! On the last day in Nicaragua, I received a call from my FH and he told me that he’d noticed my car was making a weird noise and that he took it to the mechanic to get it fixed and also helped with other minor stuff like washing the upholstery and changing the oil.

My Beloved made sure to make me feel loved when most of my cousins and my grandmother came to pick me up at the airport with a nice balloon that read “Welcome back”. They hugged me like I was gone longer than I had and made me feel special just by being there and being interested in hearing what I had done during that week.

Summing up, our honeymoon was like no other, filled with many beautiful sights and romantic sunsets, new experiences and friendships. I feel pampered and so loved by my Beloved.

“In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you.” (Isaiah 54:14-17)

“Instead of your shame you will have a double portion, And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs.” (Isaiah 61:7)
