Consider Your Ways: Question 2
What's the most humanly impossible thing you will ask God to do this year?

This is such a difficult one for me. My heart is torn in two. I want to be a woman of noble character, but I also want to be a wife of noble character. It is one of my deepest desire and the idea of not being a wife and mother sometimes breaks my heart.

In all this, I have to be wary. Has this become an idol? Is this desire more important to me that my relationship with God?

As a result of all this turmoil inside my head and heart, I have refrained from directly praying about this issue, too worried that it would show a lack of faith or discontentment in my situation. Through my current reading though, I'm wondering if I have made a mistake here. So I am going to pray boldly, asking that the Lord will bring my husband into my life, but also more importantly that he will work me more and more into the likeness of that woman of noble character so I will be ready to be a wife and mother, whether or not he plans for me to be married.

Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:4-5

Dear Keziah,
Thank you so much for visiting my site and leaving a comment. As a new blogger I can't tell you how excited I get when I see someone has actually read what I've written and taken the time to leave a comment.
If you'd like, I'll pray for you too. My daughter is 27 and happily single right now. However, I pray consistently for the man who will someday be her husband. I have for years. I prayed those prayers for my sons, and the Lord has blessed us with two of the most wonderful daughters-in-law you can possibly imagine. My sons are truly blessed. God hears those prayers, and He does answer. He cares deeply about the desires of our hearts. I know we don't always get what we ask for, but He always gives us what is best for us. He loves you so much, He has inscribed your name on the palm of His hand. I'd be honored to pray for you. With love, Linda

What a tough question to ask oneself. It sounds like you are headed in the right direction. To pray for what your heart desires, but most importantly to pray for and desire His working in you!! Thanks for sharing so personally.

And thanks for linking at "My Quiet Corner". How nice to know you have been around and I didn't even know. Thanks for "de-lurking" and leaving the comment as well! :-)

You are welcome at "My Quiet Corner" anytime!!

My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer last August. The doctors tell us that it is incurable. The most humanly impossible thing I will ask God to do this year is to manifest my mom's healing so that we can move past this.
