*

THE LORD SPOKE TO ME A

WHILE AGO.

HE SAID, GIVE ME YOUR

HEART.

TRUST ME WITH YOUR HEART,

AND THEN I'LL MAKE SURE THAT

THE PERSON THAT I GIVE IT TO

IS TRUSTWORTHY.

BOTH OF MY SISTERS GOT

MARRIED IN THEIR EARLY

20s, AND HERE I WAS CLOSE

TO 40.

BUT EACH DAY YOU GOES BY,

AND YOU SAY I MUST BE

ANOTHER DAY CLOSER.

WE HAD BEEN WORKING

TOGETHER FOR ABOUT, WHAT, 12

YEARS?

UH-HUH.

SHE WAS ALWAYS MY BEST

FRIEND.

I REALIZED, I CAN REALLY

USE THIS AS A SEASON TO PRAY

TO GOD, TO MAKE ME WHAT I

NEEDED TO BE, SO THAT

WHENEVER HE SENT THE PERSON

HE HAS FOR ME, I WOULD BE

WHOLE AND COMPLETE.

I WAS IN CALIFORNIA, AND

I WAS PRAYING.

AND I WASN'T EVEN THINKING,

AND THE LORD PUT HER IN MY

SPIRIT.

IT WAS, LIKE, I WANT YOU TO

CONSIDER HER.

IT WAS WEIRD.

IT WAS LIKE, MAN, REALLY,

GOD?

I DIDN'T SEE HIM THAT

WAY.

HE DIDN'T SEE ME THAT WAY.

I CALLED HER, AND SHE WAS

MAD AT ME AT THE TIME.

I SURE WAS.

I WAS LIKE, I KNOW YOU'RE

MAD AT ME, BUT I REALLY WANT

YOU TO -- I WANT YOU TO PRAY

ABOUT EACH OTHER.

I'M NOT GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW WITH YOU.

BUT HE SAID, NO, NO, NO.

I'M REALLY ASKING YOU IF YOU

SEE SOMETHING IN ME THAT YOU

THINK REQUIRES GROWTH, I'M

ASKING YOU AS A FRIEND, WILL

YOU PRAY FOR ME.

AND SO WE STARTED

PRAYING.

IN THE MIDST OF PRAYING,

SOMETHING HAPPENED.

IT WAS LIKE SOMETHING CAME

IN THE CAR OR SOMETHING.

BECAUSE I JUST -- WOW.

YOU EVER SEEN THOSE CARTOONS

BACK IN THE DAY, WHERE

SOMEONE SHOT THE CARTOON

CHARACTER WITH AN ARROW, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN HE LOOKED AT

IT.

WHAT I CALL A SCOOBY-DOO

MOMENT, WHEN GOD KIND OF

REVEALED THAT IT WAS HIM.

I WAS LIKE, HUH?

AS SOON AS I SAID, LORD, I

BRING TO YOU MY FRIEND, I

JUST STARTED BALLING AND

BALLING AND BALLING.

AND SO NOW I'M CRYING, HE'S

CRYING.

IT WAS SO WEIRD.

I WAS TALKING TO HER AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN IT'S LIKE GOD

TAKES ME AND UNCOVERS ME AND

MAKES ME TRANSPARENT AND

VULNERABLE.

IT WAS LIKE HE SAW GOD

TAKE HIS HEART AND HAND IT

TO ME.

AND TOLD HIM YOU CAN TRUST

HER WITH IT.

AND AFTER THAT -- BECAUSE WE

USED TO FUSS A LOT.

AND AFTER THAT, EVERYTHING

CHANGED.

IT CHANGED.

IT IS AMAZING.

BECAUSE I THINK A LOT OF IT

WAS THE TRUST FACTOR.

A LOT OF IT WAS TRUST.

A LOT OF IT WAS FEAR.

SHE WAS PLUSES TO MINUSES I

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I HAD.

IT HAPPENED SO FAST.

WE GOT ENGAGED, AND FOUR

MONTHS LATER WE WERE

MARRIED.

* YOU SAID YES TO ME

* YOU SAID YES TO ME

*

AND I THANK GOD THAT WE

GOT MARRIED *

* WE GOT MARRIED

THERE IS HOPE.

THERE IS NO AGE LIMIT ON

MARRIAGE, ON LOVE.

THERE'S NO LIMIT.

GOD KNOWS THE DESIRES OF OUR

HEARTS, AND HE IS FAITHFUL

TO GIVE US THE DESIRES OF

OUR HEART THAT WILL LINE UP

WITH HIS WILL.

IF YOU JUST TRUST GOD,

HE'LL LEAD YOU.

BECAUSE GOD IS WISER.

HE IS SMARTER THAN US.

WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND

DONE, EVERYTHING DOES COME

BACK TO OUR RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD, AND ESTABLISHING Ap

GENUINE RELATIONSHIP, NOT A

RITUAL, NOT AN OBLIGATION,

BUT A GENUINE RELATIONSHIP.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE HONEST WHEN

YOU TALK TO GOD, AND SAY

THIS IS HOW I FEEL.

I'M SCARED.

I'M MAD.

I'M FRUSTRATED.

AND JUST TALK TO HIM LIKE A

FRIEND, AND YOU'LL BE

SURPRISED WHAT HE DOES.

* AND I'M SO GLAD YOU SAID

YES TO ME *

* YOU SAID YES TO ME
