Last October a man whom I was friends with three years prior came back into my life. I wrote about him in my recent blog "A Love Letter from Jesus".
November 22, 2021, a man of God, James Thompson, began to prophesy to me on a Facebook live. God had used him many times before to speak to me and the prophesies were always exactly on point and always came to pass exactly as he had said and when he said. On this day in particular he was prophesying a few things that were to come. At the time I had a T-shirt business...Grace On Display He began to prophesy over my business and told me that God was sending me someone that was going to help me with the business. He told me that God was going to send me a partner. He also told me that I was going to be traveling and telling people about Jesus. He told me the money I received from my business would provide for my costs to travel and I would no longer worry about gas or car repairs and all of this would overtake me in the month of January.
At the time, I assumed God was sending me a business partner. I remember thinking I must be going to sell a lot of T-shirts to do all this traveling. When would I have time to make all the shirts?
As time went on, I continued to work on things for Grace on Display and Philly (the man from my past) began to help me a lot with the business. I assumed this was the partner he prophesied was coming my way.
Philly and I grew closer as we continued to get to know each other on a friendship level. In case you didn't read the previous blog, at one point he told me I was going to be his wife and during this time I was seeking God to confirm to me if that was true. I was very resistant and didn't want that to be the case. I was still holding out hope that God was restoring my relationship with someone else.
God began to confirm things to me but I kept wondering.... if this man was suppose to be my husband....why did God use the word partner? Why didn't he say God was sending me a husband?
Just as the man of God prophesied, January came and business overtook us. It wasn't anything I had expected. Philly and I started a transportation business in the area God led me to. I began telling everyone who came into the car about Jesus. I no longer worried about gas or car repairs and I most certainly had a great business partner.
It's now a year later and I know with 100% certainty, Philly is the best earthly blessing God has given me. No one is perfect, but he is perfect for me. He is every bit of my heart's desires and I am the desires of his.
Last weekend we had a brief conversation that was quickly interrupted, about how much I mean to him and how we've been together through the thick and the thin, more so, than anyone else in his life ever has been. Later in the day while I was alone I was thinking about what he said and in response I wanted to tell him that we are partners in every aspect of life and I will be there through the thick and the thin always. And that's when the revelation came!
Why didn't God use the word husband when the man of God prophesied to me? Because just like he spoke it, God was sending me a partner. He wasn't just sending me a husband, He was sending me a partner in marriage. He wasn't just sending me the father of my children, He was sending me a partner in family. He wasn't sending me just a business partner, He was sending me a partner in life!
To my dear partner Philly, I love you with every fiber of my being. God has blessed me beyond anything I could ever imagine or desire. There is no man in this world who is more perfect for me, than you. You are an amazing man and I am beyond grateful that we have both allowed God to mold us into who we are today so we can be the perfect life partner for each other. I am so blessed that I get to spend every day for the rest of my life with you. I thank you for loving me so unconditionally, for always putting me before everyone except God, and for protecting me the way you do. You are truly everything a husband should be. Saying I love you does not do justice to how I feel for you. May our love continue to grow deeper and our relationship grow stronger and may we forever keep God the center of our lives.
God, I can't thank you enough for preparing me for this blessing and for molding me into the wife and partner that he deserves. Thank you for helping me to let go of people, places, and things that were not part of your perfect plan for my life. I will forever give you glory and praise you for every blessing you've poured into me, especially this man you've created just for me.
