the story of Elizabeth & Dwight Bailey
Dwight had no idea about what I really thought about him, or if we would ever have a relationship beyond friendship. He just knew that I’d answer the phone when he called – so he kept calling. 🙂 And I was turmoil and knots on the inside.
When we are reading love stories, we need to focus on what God has done—not on what the people did—because our very best “rightness” is still worth nothing in the Kingdom of God. It doesn’t guarantee us a single thing. Love stories are about how God moved, even when people didn’t have any idea that He was there.
