I was thinking this morning of how I went through all my magazines, searching for that one elusive project I was sure I had seen, page after page I turned over in vain my stack of magazines grew smaller, till only one remained.
Ah...I thought, it has to be in here, for this is the only one left, and I eagerly flipped through the pages, only to be disappointed and bereft.
The pattern I was searching for just wasn't in here, Just what to do now was not very clear.
I could give up, look for another project, and find something else to do; there are certainly a wealth of them, every magazine has one or two.
But that just wasn't it, the one that had caught my eye, and I wouldn't be satisfied until I'd found it, and given it a try.
It reminded me of years that have gone by, when Jesus was the One I didn't know, and I searched for that elusive ‘something’ that would make my life glow.
I tried so many other things, only to fail again; this was a battle I couldn't fight, a prize I would never win.
I was so wrong, for Jesus heard my heart, and came that moment to rescue me, for only when I was down and out, could I look up and see.
I had been trying to do it myself - a task I could never do, but Jesus stepped right into my heart, and gave me a life brand new.
I have always had a plan, He said, with more joy than you ever knew, and if you follow in My steps, all your dreams in Me will come true.
From that day on, my life was transformed, I was a heart made new, and after a time, my dearest wish, my dream came true in you.
God brought us together, for it was in His plan, one that had to be, for Jesus knew what I was longing for, and He knew you would set me free.
My heart was filled with love that day, when you came into my life, and now the happiness overflows each moment that goes by, for now I am your wife.
I am so thankful that Jesus didn't give up, leave me like a project undone, but instead He waited till I was ready for Him to fight the battle to be won.
And then even more would belong to me, for God made my dream come true,
for I now have the desire of my heart - the dream and the wish are both you.
