Worshipful Wednesday #5 - "Immeasurably More"

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Eph 3: 20-21
This has been one of my favorite verses throughout my struggle with infertility/childlessness. I love this reminder that the Lord is able to do immeasurably more than all I could ask or imagine. I believe this and I have witnessed it specific to infertility in the lives of the many of the ladies on my blog list. Check them out if you are looking for some encouragement and a reminder of what the Lord is able to do.

But today I want to praise God for an area of my life where He has already done "immeasurably more" than I could have imagined. On Sunday, as I was sitting beside my husband, feeling his shoulder against mine, singing "Majesty" I was overcome with the thought of how blessed I am to have him beside me. This verse came to mind as I realized how God gave me a husband who is "immeasurably more" than I asked or imagined was possible. Shortly after committing my life to the Lord in March of 2002, I began to ask God for a husband. Quite honestly, it was a prayer I thought I would be praying for a while. But only 2 months later, John and I had our first date and I knew I had met the man I would marry. But even then I had no idea how greatly God had blessed me. As I have seen John grow in his faith becoming a godly man who loves the Lord, I have been overwhelmed by God's grace and mercy to me.

Thank you Jesus for your goodness and mercy.

Great post, I think so much in this struggle, our husbands get lost and our focus comes off of them, and it's hard for them too! I love when people appreciate their husbands, as I greatly appreciate mine!!
