Before I met my husband, I was not a secure person. I often questioned the intentions of my boyfriends, friends and even my family. I had seen enough in my life to know that it was easy to lie and even easier to hurt someone, especially when their intentions had started out good. But something about Jeremy was different; I trusted his word to a fault, I never doubted him and I never doubted his intentions.
I still don't.
God showed this to me on Sunday. He placed this little tid-bit of information in front of me and said, "Look. I gave you someone you could trust, someone who you would never doubt." Then He asked me some tough questions: "Did you forget? Isn't this what you asked for?"
And it was...and I had forgotten. I hadn't forgotten that this is what I had prayed for, but I had forgotten the feelings growing up and dating of constant heart-break and mistrust. I had forgotten the many times that I began to trust just to have those feelings ripped from beneath me. I had forgotten the lies and the cheating and the constant reminder that I felt alone in the world.
What God gave me when He gave me my husband was like the missing piece of a puzzle that I had been searching for all of my life. He gave me security. He gave me someone whom I know I will never have to doubt. That's a big deal these days when all you hear about is infidelity, lying between spouses and complete mistrust. I was blessed enough to find someone who will always be truthful and loyal to me and I had taken that for granted for almost the entirety of our relationship.
It's easy to see the flaws in someone when that's all that you're looking for. But when you start to realize the good traits that someone possesses, you'll usually find that you're blessed beyond measures. Praise God for answered prayers... and husbands like mine. ♥
