Alive and Relevant

From a young age my greatest ambition was to have a wife and family - specifically a wife as a best friend. Although I believed in God and went to church since I was a young child, it wasn’t until I was 18 yrs old that I made the decision to become a Christian - really believing that God sent his Son Jesus to die on the cross for my sins.

I was 20 yrs old when I felt as if I’d reached a crossroads in my life to choose either a Christian or non-Christian girlfriend. I felt at my lowest point and didn’t know which way to go. After blaming my family for my confused state, I stormed out of the house and went for a walk. A stranger came up to me introduced them self as a Christian and said that I didn’t need to worry as God had a wife planned for me.  This news felt as if a great burden had been lifted from my shoulders.

Several years passed but nothing! I joined a Christian friendship organisation and when the membership lapsed after nothing really coming of it, I thought that was the end of the matter.

After my Christmas holidays I received a small packet through the post with unfamiliar handwriting on it. I had a strong feeling that God was saying this is the person I would marry.  The Christian girl and I started writing letters, long letters! We then phoned and later met up. She lived in Hampshire and I in Kent. We were very compatible, our personalities were very similar.  We were like hand and glove.  This was definitely God’s work in matching/bringing us together.  We got married 1½ yrs later. As it turned out, my now wife had written to me even though my membership had lapsed and was supposed to have only written to current members.

It reminds me of a passage in the Bible about a man called Solomon.  I had asked God for a wife and he blessed me not only with a wife, but a beautiful woman at that, as well as her being my best friend too.  1 Kings 3 v5-13
