Things happen in our lives as Christians and at the moment it is happening we sometimes cannot understand why it is happening or the purpose for it. God knows. God has a plan. This verse is plastered everywhere for just about everything but it is such a powerful verse, Jeremiah 29:11, 'For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."' There were times over the past 5 years where I had trouble believing this verse. Rob and I have been through quite a lot in the past 5 years and I had to have faith and trust that God had a plan for everything and that God knew the outcome of all the situations. It is hard to know God knows what will happen in the end, but if we have faith and trust him completely then we don't need to worry about what is happening. We only need to trust and have faith.
I sure am glad I had faith in God when Rob asked me to be his girlfriend. I had no idea how long we would be together but I had faith in God and trusted that God knew. Guess what, God did know because now we are married! So we will be together til death do us part.
Here are some pictures of Rob and I at the beginning of our relationship.
