What’s the Point?

Dear Brides, maybe you don’t have an RMT yet, even after you learned how to be a godly wife and wise woman. It does not mean that you are a failure, for me, it means that the Lord wants to spend more time alone with me. And I want to cherish and enjoy all the time that we can spend together.

“But if any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God who gives it to men liberally.”
James 1:5

“Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He WAITS on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him” Isaiah 30:18.

“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?” Jeremiah 32:27.

“Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You!” Jeremiah 32:17.

Reading this chapter in Living the Abundant Life “What’s the Point?” the Lord taught me that the woman who I am becoming is not only about being a good wife but a godly woman that pleases Him, that fears Him. I don’t think that everything that I learned was for nothing, it is the opposite. I am thankful for my Beloved and how He is still changing and molding me regardless of having a restored marriage or not. All the things that we do, should be done for Him.

For a while I struggle with why I didn’t have an RMT, I was following His principles and Word. But now I can see that everything that the Lord and the RMI taught me during my journey is being used to ministering to others. I don’t know what the next seasons of my life are or what it will bring, but I want to trust Him and pay attention to what He is doing so subtle in my life.

Instead of living sad because I don’t´ have a restored marriage with an EH, I will rejoice because I am restored to the Lord and love of my life. During this season of my life, I want to live and submit myself to Him and His will.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”—1 John 1:9

Pray with me: Lord, I want to ask for forgiveness because many times I asked what was the point to come here, to learn about restoration and your principles and I felt that it was all in vain. Forgive me Lord for not trusting You, and thinking that my plans and ways were better than Yours. Forgive me for my pride and for want to understand first and after submitting my life to You, HH, when I should always trust You and Your ways, even if I don´t understand now, You always will do everything for my good.

Beloved, thank You for reminding me that I have the best part just as Mary who sat at Your feet and it cannot be taken from me. Thank You for Your patience, love, for calling me and giving me a purpose to live, and it is to live for You. “but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

Dear Brides, being restored to the Lord is the best thing that happened to all of us. He is the most important person in our lives. He is the reason we were born and live for.

I am thankful to learn how I can have a closer relationship with the Lord and how to encourage others to look forward, to look at Him instead of our circumstances and problems.
