the story of Esther Grace Rojas & Kalub Anderson
I had a dream that Kalub got back from a trip, handed me a ring as asked, “Esther, will you wait for me?” When I said yes, I could see the peace of the Lord come over him and I felt it in myself as well.
Around the same time, in my personal devotions, I had been reading through Isaiah and got to chapter 64:4-5 and was so encouraged by the verses that said, “From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him. You meet him who joyfully works righteousness.” From this, I knew that I needed to wait and that the Lord would work out his plan and not just by sitting around doing nothing but actively living out His word in whatever path he opened up.
Be careful that your efforts to “be prepared” for whenever God brings you into a courtship don’t leave you with a narrow view of how He will work. Be careful not to construct a formula in your head as to how a courtship should look. And above all, be careful to submit every aspect of future romantic relationships to our Father…including how you think they’ll look and play out. Because as many courtship books remind us, God really does write the best love stories.
