“I will sing the LORD’s praise, for he has been good to me.” – Psalm 13:6
How I have longed for and awaited this day! Ten years ago, the Lord worked in my heart to give Him my desires and aspirations and to start praying daily for my future life partner. Five years ago the Lord brought someone into my life who would, in time, become more dear to me than anyone I have yet known.
In the years I have spent among groups of godly young people, I have met thousands who are seeking God and His ways. One internationally renowned preacher described these groups as “the Godliest of the Godly young people” he has ever met. Nevertheless, I have not found even in these circles anyone I can look in the eye and see that their heart is truly and fully dedicated to the Lord and His ways. To see the fear of God exemplified in the same life, to discover an unshakable faith and a godly love that overflows onto all those around, to find responsibility, determination and endurance has been far above my expectations. To know and be known of such a person is a privilege and an honour beyond my merit. I believe that only God could have worked such a wonder.
It is my immense pleasure and honour to announce that I have now been officially granted by Mr. Taylor a courtship with his daughter, Erica Ashley Taylor.
This has been long in coming, and we have already spent much time with each other’s families. Perhaps I will make another post soon with more details.
Some noteable posts from our blog: be sure to read between the lines; you may find some interesting statements and/or pictures.
Erica, I thank God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for you, I always pray with joy because of your fellowship from the first day until now, being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
It is right for me to feel this way about you, since I have you in my heart and you share in God’s grace with me. God can testify how I long for you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
