Well guys, I, Marcos Felipe, and Sara are very happy to be the first couple to share with you some of our experience in our relationship. We thought it would be better for both of us to share our own view of the facts individually, so here goes! In this first post, I would like to share with you about my time of prayer.
I have always known that marriage is something that is in God’s heart and I have prayed for it since I was 12 years old. Whaaat? 12 years old? That’s right! 12 years old. I didn’t pray for a specific person, but for the Lord to keep whoever she was until then.
During that time, feelings came and went, and to be honest, these feelings were very helpful, because they somehow saved me from the world and stopped me from turning away from God’s path and searching for worldly things. I always thought: “I will save myself for that person”.
When I turned 18 years old, I thought: “I think now is the time to find someone”. However, my time wasn’t the Lord’s, and therefore, I had some disappointments. Actually, there is no such thing as the ‘time to find someone’; we need to wait for the Lord to provide.
So for this, I kept myself from searching anything in the world, I lived the church life intensely, I went to all conferences I could, I did the GPPC.
Oh, the GPPC! One of the best times of my life! I was still very closed towards the matter of relationships, so I read the booklet “The Marriage of the Dreams of God”, which I highly recommend. After reading it, I was able to rest in the Lord. I was sure God had the best for me.
I sought the Lord even more, I gave myself to Him, I really enjoyed the GPPC, I had many experiences with the Lord, visited many churches in many cities. And, in one of those visits, there was a problem with our car, which forced us to sleep over in the house of a very dear sister, who later became my mother-in-law. That small car problem led me getting to know the most important person in my life. Do you want to know when everything began? Well, I’m not telling you until the next chapter.
See you in the next post!
