Keep Calm (And Trust God)


These are my favorite verses, and I wanted to share them with you today.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

These verses have been special to me since I left Tennessee back in 2007. My sister pointed them out with an emphasis on in all thy ways. She said, “We should look to God for guidance in all things: relationships, jobs, etc.” It was then that I started praying about my relationship(s).

I think that’s what helped me in my last breakup. I prayed the entire time we dated that if it was God’s will–it would work. And if it wasn’t God’s will–he would help me to accept it. He did too. It was rough. I won’t lie: I really wanted it to work. But, it didn’t.

When I met Victor, it wasn’t planned. I was so excited when I saw that there weren’t any young singles in my meeting. The last thing I wanted (in January) was to fall in love with a Mexican. I was happy when we hit it off though.

Two days later, I wanted to see him again. My phone was not functioning, and I hopped on a bus without a word to him. Imagine my surprise when he walked up to me as soon as I left the bus station. It was like something from a movie. That town is way too big for something like that!

I guess what I’m saying is that I feel like Victor and were brought together. Too many things had to work out just so for us to meet. Many years of praying (on both of our parts) culminated in that weekend in San Cristóbal. And it feels right.

I know that my family and friends are a little shocked and in awe from yesterday. Keep calm. And know that those verses mentioned before have been the prayer of my heart for years. I can trust that my feet have been directed–and who knows where God will lead when he’s allowed to guide?!
