Sometimes you will just realize that things in your life has been perfectly orchestrated by your Creator in answer to your prayers.
I prayed for a husband who will love me and accept my family as is. I prayed for a man who will be strong to whom I can depend on. Someone who will take responsibility for our family's spiritual growth - a Christian and will be a good father to my children (back then I was thinking of the number 4, preference changed btw hahaha).
Before we got married, I had my list, http://i-am-me-nyem.blogspot.com/2007/05/long-live-jumong.html that was during no bf days. (The guy must have read and and one day found the gap on his front teeth repaired, hahaha.)The nice teeth part is a criteria all right but that's not everything why I married him. We dated a lot, as in every night A LOT! Doesnt want to take chances eh? But really he's about to go abroad for work and he cant waste time. I was happy to have company but was scared to say yes to a relationship especially to an LDR. Also I came from a previous one and I dont want him to think he's just a rebound, besides I was like 27 then and the next relationship should be THE ONE.
Midweek service at Bread of Life Ministries in Greenbelt 1 helped me a lot to get myself going. We were dating then and he asked if he could come. I said yes and was pretty much sizing him up if he's really doing it to seek Christ or if he is just doing it to please me. Sorry naman but I need to guard myself too. But I remember Ate Mai told me years before tht if it will make someone know Christ, the initial reason for attending church wouldnt be an issue, - a bystander, sabit lang o naligaw doesnt matter, - as long as he will hear God's word and open his heart.
Here's a man who has received Christ as Saviour when we were still in college (not through me) the seed was there and bit by bit it grew, he met Christian friends -God led him to Christian programmer friend Dennis who told him to read the book of John-, some setbacks here and there but little by little he found himself searching.
Fast forward we got married had a baby, moved to Brunei and it was there where his spiritual life blossomed. Didnt I tell you I love Brunei??? There he was baptised, there he longed to hear His word and there his relationship with Jesus grew.
I thank God for a giving us a man who leads us to Him, who strives hard to understand His Word and keep it.
Yes, he's still a work in progress but aren't we all?
