"It Takes Two To Tango"......
For me that is SO yesterday. But, it took some time and some "spiritual" growing up to do in order to realize the reality of what I needed in my life. Relying on my hardened heart to make an important decision or move in life was not up to me. Nor should it be up to me. It shouldn't be up to my spouse either. And, he rightly agrees...
The King Dad and I were faced with a huge decision to make last week. A decision that would ultimately change how we lived our day to day life. Pro's and con's were listed, noted and discussed beyond detail.
But, we took OUR decision to our third party to see what He had to say about it. And He made it very clear as to what our answer should be.
Matthew 7:7....Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
It's easy to fill your mind and your heart with what YOU want. But, it may not be what He wants for you. Have you ever considered that? There have plenty of times in my life that I've wanted something so badly, but missed the opportunity. It's easy to become selfishly angry at not getting what you want. But, perhaps it was never meant to be given to you in the first place.
It really does take three to tango.....especially if you want to do His will and not your own. And when you do so, it's amazing how the puzzle pieces all seem to fit together.
When you put the puzzle pieces of your life together in the "light", it's easy to find the interlocking pieces and matching edges. But when you try to put the pieces of your life together in the "dark", you can't see what's in front of you and none of these pieces fit right no matter how hard you cram them together.
I am so proud of my husband. After lots of prayers and due diligence he is moving forward with his career in a brand new setting. And for that we are thankful.....
Congratulations King Dad!
P.S. There is nothing more attractive in man than one who lives by the old saying...."It Takes Three To Tango". :-)
