Our paths crossed not because of the brokenness we had been through but because of what we chose to do with it. God placed a desire in our hearts early in our grief to help hurting people. For me, it was clear that I should help widowers. For @brittanypricebrooker, it was widows. But we never could have imagined that being obedient to help hurting people behind the scenes would be the way God would introduce us to each other, but He did!
Looking back, the biggest blessings in my life showed up when I surrendered my plans and started listening to God’s voice. That doesn’t mean that responding to God’s voice made things easy - grieving, healing, trusting, blending...they are all crazy hard. But the blessings that come from our obedience will be obvious and they will bring strength and resolve to carry out the purpose we are being called to.
So my challenge to you right now is this...take that step that you know you should take. Respond to God’s voice like you should have already done and watch Him reveal a purpose that is so much more than you could have ever imagined.
