He went on to say, "This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them."
"I dare you to do it."
"What do you mean, you dare me?"
"I think you're scared to try."
"Well, what if I am? Just because this on-line dating service has a good rep doesn't mean I'll find Mr. Right."
"No, but if you don't take the risk, you'll never know, will you?"
"Okay, okay! I'll do it. Don't want to, but, I will."
"Good! Martha, you are a wonderful, attractive woman. You deserve to find love. I know you will."
"That makes one of us."
"Hang up the phone. Go for it!"
How ironic! An old college flame telling me to give it the old college try . . . for someone else.
I take the dare. I keep my promise. I don't have much hope.
Or, do I?
Personal profile completed, I wait. Every day seems like a year.
Prospects pop up. So do red flags.
Then . . .
There is the profile. There is the face I now know so well.
Who tries this site as the last resort. Has so many more hits than I.
Yet, chooses me . . .
And, I choose him.
Because God has chosen us to be together . . .
When in your life have you experienced God's mighty hand guiding you? Leading you?
Will you pray with me?
In creating us in Your image, Father, You have enabled us to have faith; the faith You first give to us. We can trust You, knowing You have the best plan for our lives. We thank you for all the blessings You bestow upon us. May we ever see and appreciate the works of Your mighty hands. Amen.
