se ven las caras pero nunca el corazón
It's funny, I went looking for this thread after a thought just a minute ago. I'm kinda mad at G-d about something else and then the thought occurs to me, "You're here...maybe He won't move you yet because He wants you to meet your husband, dummy!" :giggle:

Well, maybe.

I pray he will take the desire from my heart. I am struggling so much right now in my faith- feeling sidelined by God. I know he is there, I dont believe i've been forgotten, just have a feeling of being placed on the back burner for 20 years. If it is not his will that I be married, why have I always longed to be?

"I remember practically bursting into tears when I read that, because it resonated so powerfully with me at a time in my life (I was 31 and still very single) where I wondered if I would ever get married. And I think her mother's insight is a powerful one: the waiting is the cross. The not-knowing is the cross. "

I would like to partner up again in marriage, but sometimes feel guilty as some in my circle have never even had so much as a gentleman friend. I had a great godly marriage of almost two years after waiting for 20 plus years until his decease in 2012. Singleness is not my ministry I minister better as a helper team player but God knows, " A faithful man who can find?" KJV. ....But God.

thank you for sharing this with me. i think she captured my problem "But, like Adam and Eve in the garden, grasping at godliness, what these idols point to is a fear that God doesn’t really love me and want what’s best for me."

this is a good article, and it's comforting to read. thank you so much

Her story has blessed me SO much. She went from an emotional mess to meeting her husband, getting engaged and married in a year. They are now expecting. Ladies, let's not lose hope. God has a plan. His timing is perfect even if it doesn't feel perfect. He will not abandon us.

This punched me right in the forehead, in a very good way!...
“Love is the soul’s true nourishment, yet this food which of all substances we most need is not something we can produce for ourselves. One must wait for it. The only way to make absolutely certain that one will not receive it is to insist on procuring it by oneself. And once again, this essential dependence can generate anger. Conversely, we can accept this situation of dependence, and keep ourselves trustingly open to the future, in the confidence that the Power which has so determined us will not deceive us.” (Source) Benedict XVI

This is a beautiful message.

Ladies for those of you who are praying and yearning for a husband you are doing the right thing by asking God but also pray for your own preparation. I've been married for almost 3 years and let me say I'm blessed with an amazing husband but marriage is hard work. Meaning you no longer have to care for yourself you have another person you have to cater to. Even after a long day of work I'd love to go home and sleep or relax and watch tv but I have to cook, clean take over the baby etc. at times you will feel exhausted. Grateful my husband can cook, clean and do laundry so if I can't he will do it but I always feel the pressure as a wife I need to stay on top of things. I say all of this because not only should you pray for the husband but pray to be a strong and dutiful wife. It's a lot of work to raise a family. It's the best feeling in the world loooking at my husband and child knowing that's my legacy I'm building but I was ready. Be ready for what you're praying God for.

Another amazing blog post: https://www.theevangelista.com/faith/2017/8/18/his-yoke-is-well-fitting

"A couple of years ago, a blog post by a former spiritual director of mine, Msgr. Charles Pope, helped me understand Jesus’ words in a new way:

'Jesus says that the cross He has for us is “easy.” The Greek word χρηστὸς (chrestos) is better translated as “well-fitting,” “suitable,” or even “useful.” The Lord is saying that the yoke He has for us is suited to us; it is well-fitting; it has been carefully chosen so as to be useful for us. God knows that we need some crosses in order to grow and He knows what they are. He also knows what we can bear and what we are ready for. Yes, His yoke for us is well-fitting.'

Mind. Blown. His yoke is well-fitting. It was designed for me, which means that with God's grace, its weight won't crush me. His yoke is well-fitting. Only the crosses Jesus asks me to carry will be well-fitted to me."
