A God Written Love Story
She was still in high school and I was just beginning college. We only knew each other in passing from being in high school together a couple years. Plus, I was two grades ahead of her. She was a cheerleader and I was on the football team. However, I really can’t think of one moment before that our eyes ever met. I can promise you they did that night.
In my mind, I was just returning back to my high school alma mater for a football game. God proved His plans were so much more. Before, I barely knew her name. By the end of the night I knew her captivating smile, phone number, where she lived and that I really wanted to know her more. We road together that night to a church event. Everything moved so fast for two people who barely knew each other before.
That night totally changed my life. It was the end of me ever feeling lonely again. It was the end of me needing to search any longer for the love of my life. It was the end of me ever having to say I’m single. In one night, God started what He planned long before either of us took our first breath.
You see, God’s will is not something you create, but discover. God’s will is not something run down. Instead, you seek God with all your heart and He brings things to you. I remember asking my dad as an early teen “so how do you find the person you’re meant to marry”? He replied, “Son it will just happen. God will just bring it all together.” I doubt he remembers even saying that, but I’ve never forgotten it.
Twenty five years later I’m one of the happiest married men alive. At that time we just had attraction, but now we have true love. Daily she proves she’s been hand knitted together just for me. I sincerely fall in love with her more everyday. She completes me and makes me a very grateful man. I really don’t know what I would do without her.
I pray even now that each of our four boys will be so fortunate. That they will wait and trust God to bring their meant to be life long partner to them. God knows what He has planned for each of us. He takes even the broken roads and still puts us on the road of life. Nothing compares to His plans. I’m so glad Aimee Lynn Perrin was part of God’s amazing plans for my life.
“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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. -Jeremiah 29:11-13
