Wait on the Lord

Back in September, my friend Daniel Mount got married to the lady of his dreams. I’ve known Daniel for about 15 years, and it was never a secret that he wanted to get married and have a family. Through the years, he moved out of state, was busy with work and church functions, but never lost sight of his dream. A couple years ago, Daniel moved back to Ohio so that he could better work on his health, and he became involved in a church there. This is where he met Ariel Gunther, and the rest is history.

The things that strike me about this story are:

  1. Daniel did not “settle.” He knew what he was looking for in a wife (all of which were Godly qualities), and he was willing to remain single until he found it.
  2. Daniel did not have to make something happen. He was simply following God’s leading and, at the right time, God opened Daniel’s eyes to the woman he was to marry.

As a single woman, stories like this are encouraging. I am often reminded that if I am seeking God and following Him, He will direct my paths, but really this can be applied to any aspect of life. You don’t have to waste time, energy, and stress trying to make things happen that you think you want. If you are completely surrendered to the Lord, He will write your story, and it will be better than anything you could have written for yourself.
