Just an update

Hey Tim,

I definitely agree with what Sas said about the maturity it takes to put an offer on hold until you know it's the Lord's timing!! You speak of being in a spiritual funk....and I understand completely because I've been going through that "funk, haze...or sometimes I call it my *wilderness*" off and on for a while now.....definitely more than 1 1/2 weeks! :-)

I want so much to be in the Lord's will, to be obedient to Him in every way, but for quite some time now, I've been feeling like I have NO IDEA what His will is for my life!! I once had a vision for my life, but after many closed doors and changes of directions, I'm not sure anymore what that vision looks like!! I don't mean to sound depressing *LOL* because I'm not depressed, but I feel like I'm in a "holding cell" waiting to find out what's going to happen to me! I'm ready for the "funk" to be over!!

And about relationships.....*sigh*.........I think this funk I've been dealing with has even "messed with my mind" in terms of relationships. For example, I have been praying for a godly husband for years now, but during this funk, I've even considered relationships with guys that I knew didn't have a close walk with the Lord. They go to church and I know they're saved, but I don't see the fruits in their lives that reflect any intimate relationship with the Lord. BUT......in considering relationships with these guys, I put aside what I've always prayed for and think, "Well, maybe I've been praying for the wrong thing, and this guy really is the one for me!!" But of course, I know in my heart of hearts he's not.

You mentioned in your previous message concerning relationships that you wonder if it's harsh to want a woman who has a deeper walk with the Lord, and I would say, "Absolutely NOT"!! I've asked myself and others that same question many times, and I just know that I know that the desire to be with someone who has the same depth and passion for Jesus is a desire that Jesus Himself puts in our hearts, and if He puts it there, I believe He's faithful to give it to us.....He says He will!! That's why I'm so frustrated over my own thoughts to be in a relationship with someone who doesn't have that depth or passion. I don't want to throw away what I know the Lord has promised me.

You also mentioned wanting to find the right woman so that you could go on with your life and get that part behind you.....I couldn't have said it better myself!! *LOL* A good friend of ours from Denmark is a pastor/evangelist and the last time he was visiting, he said to me that he was praying the Lord would send my husband so that I could really start walking in the gifts the Lord had given me, and my brain went "ah ha....that's it"!! For me.....it made alot of sense!! Sometimes I feel like I can't function in the things the Lord has gifted me in simply because my focus always turns back to "where's he at Lord?"...."where's the husband I've prayed so long for?" I don't want the desire for a husband to rule my life, but as you said, I just feel like if I could finally meet him, I could move on!! We wouldn't even have to be married yet *LOL*....if I just knew WHO he was and knew HE'S the ONE!! :-D Okay, I'm turning into a runaway train now....*putting on the brakes*!!!!

But I hope this helps to know you're not alone in the way you've been feeling about some of these things.....it certainly encouraged me to read your posts and know that I'm not the only one either! :-)
