Now I feel confident to say that he is my heart's desire. My GPW (God's Perfect Will) and GPC (God's Perfect Choice). Why?
1 Corinthians 13:1-8
1If I speak in the tongues[a] of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,[b] but have not love, I gain nothing.
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails...
These verses always echo in my head ever since I've met this man. Also, I've had a revelation that was revealed to me twice now. It coincides with our love story. I'll just share one verse though.
"...HE (God) brought her to the man."
A revelation I've asked from God. Every relationship has ups and downs and ours isn't exempted. I have learned a lot in just 6 months. This man, who I'll gladly name Cody (well his parents named him that hehehe), taught me a lot of things. He is not just after making up after every argument. He is not after my body or my face (Well, thats a bonus, as what he always says hahaha). He is after the growth of my character. He brings out the best in me. Insists on getting rid of my past struggles and helping me through them (by being hard on me hahaha jk). He is very loyal. God has given more revelations through other people but sorry I won't state everything in here anymore. hehehe!
Things I have learned:
1.) Love/Marriage knows nothing about giving up. Once you've opened your mind to giving up, it ruins the purpose of love. Giving up is running away. If you give up now, you'll always be giving up. Learn to stand strong with God's grace, hope, help and love. How will you learn to grow together if you give up and not work things together? One of the marriage problems is a soul who easily gives up. God will not give you a problem that you can't bear. He is always there. Do you think God ever gave up on us? No. Why? It is because of LOVE.
2.) Be selfless. Do not be a "me-monster". hehehe! This life is not about you. It is about our Creator and His plans and will for our lives. Focus on God and others (loved ones). Always pray and consider God's will and revelations. Just listen and obey. He won't fail you and He'll give you the best. There are good things but there are sad things too. These sad things are given to you for a purpose. You have a purpose in life. That is to live your life walking with God. Apart from Him, we are nothing. God gives us problems to make us tougher. Tougher and worthy of His Kingdom someday.
3.) We cannot give what we don't have. Know and recognize what you have and give it. What is love? God is love. 1 Corinthians 13. Now that you know, give it. Share it with someone.
4.) Do not instill fears to your partner. Only let him/her know about fear in God and everything will follow. If someone fears God then he/she will be afraid to hurt others coz that will displease God.
5.) Speak less. Stop saying negative things that will hurt the one you love.
6.) Expect less. If you have received God's revelations in your relationship then surrender it to Him. He knows what to do. Only expect more from God not from people. God is an all-knowing God. Nothing will ever escape Him. Focus on making yourself holy and worthy of God's love not on others' mistakes so you'll cease on expecting more from others. Disappointment comes to those who expect a lot from others. Expect and hope in God alone and He will never disappoint you.
7.) Surrender your past and present struggles to God. He is always working in you. He will change you in ways you can never imagine. Encourage your partner always and be his/her strength not his/her weakness. Well, God is our strength. Rely on God alone. He is always ever so faithful even if we aren't. Stand by His promises coz He is a Promise Keeper. Surrender your relationship to Him and He will bless everything you have. Put God first. Put God as the center of your relationship. Always ask Him what He wants to happen. Always pray for your partner. He loves it when you consider Him in every aspect of your life and you'll feel every blessing...every bit of His beautiful love for you!
2 Corinthians 12:9
9But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
7 is a perfect number so that's all for now. hehehe!
I've lost my internet connection for more than a month coz I've been moving from one place to another coz of certain circumstances. I have pulled out the internet antenna and cables so I had to schedule the installation from my ISP. This week, I have been praying that I will have my internet back today (June 26,2008 - Thursday) coz it is Cody and I's 2nd monthsary. I went to the wireless center last week but then the agent said I will be contacted for my schedule but no one called so I had to go back to the center. Someone called me that day (Tuesday). She said she'll try to send contractors Wednesday or maybe Thursday onwards. No one came yesterday so I called up the hotline again. The agent said my schedule was Friday. Pretty sad but I just accepted. Thursday which was today, while I was working, one unregistered phone number sent me a text message. One of the internet installers. Amazing! Thursday 10am. Just right after Cody sent me a message. Another answered prayer with a yes. Second one, I prayed for revelations just this week, He gave me enough at the very exact time I needed them. God used people such as my godmother and one of my faithful girl friends for those beautiful revelations based on God's Word. All the glory belongs to God alone! He is so amazing! He answers my prayers positively...believe and you'll get positive answered prayers too!
I must confidently say that God has blessed me with a very goodlooking boyfriend with blue eyes and a sexy body. hahaha! He also have the good character and attitude. Very wise convictions. Faithful to God. Good positive views on things. Wise thinking. Patient and loving heart. Prays a lot for me..for us! He cares so much about my emotional and spiritual growth. Very understanding. Hardworking. Knows his potentials and uses them. He does not idle with worthless things. Rational and stable emotions. He thinks about a bright future together. Very good with finances. Wise spender. Obedient (to me hahaha). Very humble spirit. Not easily influenced coz he believes that "bad company corrupts good character" (we love this verse hahaha). Very much single (but taken) and loyal to me. Last but the best, GOD completes him. GOD is his everything.
Thank GOD for my beautiful blessing named Cody Lee Howe!
To you honey, happy 2nd monthsary! My love for you grows stronger everyday. I only desire to love you more each day of my life. You are my answered prayer (with a yes, of course). I am always willing to work things out with you coz I can never see myself spending the rest of my life with any man but you. The only difference from my past relationships is that GOD has WILLingly given you to me. God bless you more! Let GOD always be the center of our relationship. May we always glorify GOD through our relationship.
To my readers, thank you for your faithfulness and interest in reading my blogs. You are all a blessing to me and to every person in your lives. God bless you all!
ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO GOD ALONE!!!
