I moved here in 1998. I believed my heart was guiding me to fully pursue a relationship with to be wife. Love led to truth, and truth to kindness. As a young believer in Jesus Christ, I thought a premarriage class would armor me against the world. As I continued my awkward walk with The Lord, I think I could have been stronger. Yet He still put dreams to fulfill, and the skills and abilities to develop for His glory. I may not have always put Him first, which I see as a reason for some of my early misguided perceptions of marriage. I think of how I lost her love in these early struggles and have spent every minute since working my way back to her. I will continue to seek her forgiveness, but am comforted knowing that The Lord my God has put His hand upon me. He will step in and fulfill the good desires of my heart.
