It’s amazing what God can do if you lean on him. 🙂
Diane & I divorced eight years ago. I ran off to Singapore to mope and instead found Christ. Turns out He wasn’t lost after all. Studying scripture led me to understand that I was probably going to go solo for the rest of my life. Prayer helped me to be content with that; I bought some Bermuda shorts, some black socks for my sandals. I was going to be fashionable dressed for walking the dog.
I had no idea God was working in Diane’s life at the same time. She found Christ (again, He wasn’t lost), and during a study on forgiveness last year, she called me up. We both recognized this as a wonderful gift and have been working on reconciliation ever since. We’ve spent a lot of time in prayer and study, both together and apart, making sure we were properly discerning God’s will.
Yesterday, I asked Diane to be my wife again, and she’s accepted. I’m not sure which one of us is more excited. 🙂
