That pretty much describes me as of right now. =)
Things aren’t perfect, no. But they are as they are supposed to be. I can’t help but be encouraged even as things around me are discouraging.
Part of this can be attributed to my just finishing for the first time Jane Austen’s most famous novel: Pride and Prejudice. It’s quite easily one of the most amazing books I’ve ever read. I prayed to God today: “One day I know I will find the Mr. Darcy you have planned for me, God. Even if I have to face pride and prejudice head on. I’m willing.”
It sounds foolish, but in context, I am perfectly serious. I believe fully that God will grant me that. He told us he would give us the desires of our heart, but in that we should be so in love and in tune with God that our desires for our lives become his desires for our lives.
I sincerely pray that my desires be in tune with his and hope that one day his desire is for me to have my Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy.
Is it immature to think so? Then so be it. =)
On another note though, I have received the absolute delight of inviting a most beloved friend from school to go to a bible study with me, and she’s coming! Words cannot express how happy I am about it! God’s doing a work! And I’m excited to be a part of it! =D
