"Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart"
(Psalm 37:4).

At age 33 Chris sensed the Lord had marriage in her future, but the right man
hadn't come along.

Yes, she could've dated non-Christian men. But that would've been a very
dangerous path. Her friend had taken that road and an unwed pregnancy was the

Even though she didn't know what God was doing, she set her sights on God's
choice and remained faithful to Him. She continued to study His Word and pray.

Now after 20 years of marriage, she thanks God for the husband He provided.
They're both on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ.

Remember, dear one, God has someone for you if it is His will. But while you're
single, continue to walk in God's footsteps and "delight in the Lord with ALL
your heart!"

Thirsting for identity

I am continuing to learn that to grow in my relationship with Christ means that my identity and hope come from Him alone. Not from hopes of what circumstances I dream will come my way, or hopes in how others will come through for me, but hoping in Christ and His love for me. The startling truth I’m realizing in this journey is that in order to be truly filled by Christ, I have to admit the disappointments I’ve encountered.

Disappointments and heartaches that are given to God free me to look to Him alone for my fulfillment. This can be scary because it means admitting to myself that others have let me down—that my husband can’t fulfill my every need, that my parents won’t always be there for me in the way I expect them to be. It’s giving other people permission not to be my living water, and asking Christ to step into those shoes instead. -by Casey Manes for radiant mag
