Obstructed View

Having been open with you at the beginning of my "Love Dare" journey I will not begin to hide anything now. Last night as I was reading and meditating on the Dare of the day, I felt the LORD firmly nudging me about something. It took a moment for me to really listen but when I did I hear this..."It doesn't matter what others say, think or feel. I (the Lord) joined you and your husband together. I have great plans for you. Meditate on My Words and I will lead you."

To anyone else those may be just words on a page but they were spoken with power. They were spoken by my LORD to me, not to anyone else. They were spoken directly to me.

It was at this point that I realized how great our FATHER'S love is for me, for my hubby and for our marriage. Yes, I always knew HE loved me but concerning our marriage...this was definitely the LORD wrapping HIS warm arms around us. How precious was that moment.

My memory began to flood with things that hubby has said to me over the years and then images of his actions. It was truly a picture movie going off in my thought life. The LORD was bringing to mind all the ways that I have truly seen what love looks like. There it was in front of me all this time but like so many of us, we seem to have selective hearing and in my case, selective vision of what has been there all along starring me in the face.

Things really do look different when the view isn't so obstructed.
