Six months ago, two separate people whose families had been close acquaintances for nearly two decades, began praying, each unbeknownst to the other, that God might see fit to bring glory to Christ and edification to others around by uniting their lives if it would be according to His will. For four months, each one with their parents were being deepened in their faith and trust in an Almighty God, while growing with desire, as well as being brought to valuable points of surrender. Just when the time was right, the Lord allowed our parents to meet together and desired intentions were expressed. That led into a tender courtship of correspondence through letters and visits, as a new and blossoming relationship sprang up. After two months, Nathan proposed to Elisabeth, asking her to join his life and be his wife...and she said YES!
"Is anything too hard for the LORD?
At the time appointed I will..."
"I being in the way, the Lord led me..."
"And it shall come to pass, that the man's rod
whom I shall choose, shall blossom."
"Hath He said, and shall He not do it?
Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?"
"Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall
give thee the desires of thine heart."
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."
