'This Is It'

I keep reading up on more different crafts, finding different things to do, and at times I've wondered at the 'why' of this, always searching out something new.

I've tried so many, and most of them are fun, but I've not found the perfect 'fit' - the one that captures my imagination completely, the one that will make me say 'this is it!'

There was a time that my entire life seemed like a quest that would never end, and I wasn't sure what I was looking for, just something that would make my life mend.

I felt all at odds, trying this, trying that, without a purpose in sight; all that I
accomplished was to fail at them all, til I felt like just giving up the fight.

Funny thing is, that was the exact moment, the lowest I'd ever been, that I finally heard Jesus' knocking at my heart, and I finally let Him in.

What a moment that was, to feel God's love just flooding in, and know that I didn't have to do anything, except to follow Him.

Following God is such an adventure for He's given me a life brand new, and along the path He scattered blessings and joy, and then God made my dreams come true.

At just the right time, when I was ready, when my trust was only in Him, did God let me know that the desire of my heart was not a "what-if," but was just a question of "when."

It seemed such a long time, to be still and wait, to know in my heart that wish would come true, and then came the day when all things came together, the day that I first met you!

The minute we met and I looked in your eyes, I knew you had taken my heart, and that you were the one that God had for me, to never again be apart.

Now joy is mine every day of the year, and trying new things is just fun, for the center of my life is anchored in you, and the two of us have become one.

I thank God for the freedom He gave me to fail, til I found what really was true, for in God I have been given every thing, for He's the one who gave me you.
