If you knew the end from the beginning…

Habakkuk 1:5 (NIV) “Look at the nations and watch– and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.

I was just sitting here thinking about my restored marriage. We’ve been restored for 5.5 years. In that time, God has blessed us with three wonderful kids (after 10 years of infertility), a marriage that’s stronger than it ever could’ve been before, & a life together that’s more beautiful than we could ever imagine. I was thinking about how I would go through all the pain again to get this life I have now. All the tears. All the sleepless nights. All the hurts were so worth having my husband beside me now seeking God’s glory above our own & teaching our kids to do the same b/c He is an awesome, amazing, and REAL God! I’m not bragging about my life. I’m so thankful for what I have b/c there was a time I had none of it. But here’s my point: would you stand stronger, harder, longer if you knew the miracles that awaited you on the other side? Don’t give up b/c it’s hard or b/c you don’t “see” any changes. Instead, dig in b/c it will all change “suddenly.” What if you’re sitting on your couch 5.5 years from now just like me totally astounded at the miraculous things God has done in your marriage?
