Hidden truth is worth seeking......eighteen part B

A continuation from day 10 of 31 days of reflecting on truth.

 The world now had an even greater definition It had worn grooves in the soles of her feet, eliminated an inch or two from her frame, left samples of its grimy self on every inch of her body and clothing.  It exposed her eyes to the hard and pitiful.  It bathed her soul in the truth of humanity.  The truth that everyone is in need of something.
     She was more committed now to hearing the Holy Spirit and seeking his direction.  She had some choices to make and she wanted to make them with wisdom.  An education or his proposal.  She made a good argument not to rush things, that an education would pay off in the end.  
    She settled into a routine, thanked God for His blessing and began to apply all of the new confidences she found in Him.  She was in awe of the depth of their relationship and how she could trust Him in all things.  She learned to commit even the smallest of things unto Him and He in turn remove the struggle.  If only she had learned this in high school, but better late than never she thought.
    A few months passed and in came his orders.  He was being transferred to Georgia, just a few hours from home.  Was God really answering all of her dreams.  A husband, a home of her own and an education.  What was to stop a wedding now, she questioned.  The phone rang and he had his orders in hand.  It would only be a matter of weeks.  She was beside herself with joy and would be counting the days for she could count on one hand the number of times she had seen him in the last year and a half.
     Less than an hour later, the phone rang again.  They had changed their mind and his final orders.  He would spend the next year in Korea.  
     This was a blow that hit her hard.  She pleaded, Lord how could this be.  Korea for a year without any leave.  This was devastation.  She had been strong, made wise decisions but how was she going to get through this she thought.
     She resolved, God had a reason.  This was an opportunity for God to move in his life and draw him closer to Him.  Yes, this is how she would see it.  So the day came that she packed his bags as she stashed little hand written pieces of herself into all of his pockets, kissed him and promised to hold onto all of their dreams, even though she felt as if she was letting hers go as she said goodbye.

Girl be continued.
