Hey, There's a Man in My Path
Today's marriage-related Miracle Monday is the story of Sister Donna Repcheck. It shows how God writes the perfect love story.
Many years ago, I said a small prayer asking the Lord that if there was someone out there for me, that He would put him in my path. I used to be quite shy in larger groups and uncomfortable starting conversation, so i knew it wouldn't be easy finding a mate.
I first met my husband, Jack, because both my son and Jack were in a play at an open-air theater in Washington Crossing. We spoke almost every night during intermission and were really interested in each other as we had a lot in common. When the play ended after two weeks, he asked me for a date. After making excuses a few times (too nervous) I finally said yes. We have been happily married for over 17 years, and I feel my life is truly blessed.
I didn't think about my prayer for at least a year after we started dating, when things were getting quite serious. When I was thinking about marriage, the Lord prompted me to remember my prayer. The words "in my path" echoed in my mind, and then I realized that Jack had first introduced himself to me on that dirt path at that open-air theater!
I remember thinking, "Wow, how amazing that the Lord answered my prayer literally!" I then had no doubts that he was the man I should marry. God is so good, and He has a plan for each of us. We need to trust Him fully when we ask for His help.
On a cute side note, there have been a few times in our marriage where my husband has forgotten to do something that I asked or I have found myself annoyed about something, and he has said to me, "Hey, remember you prayed for me." This makes me smile and warms my heart.
