Getting rid of Mr. Right now!

As I walked down the aisle in my white dress, I looked at my prince standing at the end waiting for me. I had made it; seven years of waiting had all been worth it…
As a woman who was financially stable, I only dreamed of moving onto the next stage of my life—marriage. I thought that my partner at the time was the one I would settle down with. I attended the church and he was going to another branch. We were together for five years. At first, marriage was a welcomed goal that we had discussed and a joint vision we both shared. However, as time went by, he started making excuses and getting married was no longer a priority for him; instead, he focused all of his energy and attention on developing other areas of his life.
He became cold, distant and he would flirt and take advantages towards other “female friends” behind my back. These were clear warning signs that he was not for me. God even showed me that he was no longer taking his own spiritual relationship seriously, and by default didn’t consider the future of our union important either.
Not too long after learning of his inappropriate behavior, I travelled to Israel in January 2011 on a pilgrimage with other members of the church, and there I visited the Wailing Wall. At the Wall, I made an outcry specifically for my love life. I poured out my heart to God, sharing with Him all my anguish and asked Him to completely transform this area of my life according to His will. I walked away from the Wailing Wall with peace and joy in my heart that God heard my prayer and was working things out in my favor.
It was very difficult, but I was so revolted and had reached my breaking point that I refused to doubt; I rather believed in the power of sacrifice and the blessing I would eventually reap by literally giving my all! I kept my eyes focused on God’s promise and threw myself 100% into His Word, which was my lifeline and source of strength. I had done everything I possibly could and had held absolutely nothing back! Now the ball was in God’s court and I knew He would NEVER fail me!
Exactly one year later, I got married and everything relating to our special day was a sweet blessing from God. He truly exceeded our expectations! Every aspect of the whole day was beautiful and glorified God’s name immensely. Today, I am happily married to the man of my dreams; the blessing that God had always prepared for me. My life has completely turned around and I am extremely happy with the man I love by my side.
