It took a seven-mile walk, but I finally made my decision. Stopping at a pay phone (that certainly dates it) I called my boyfriend and made a statement.
“I’ve decided to love you.”
He didn’t think that was very romantic.
Due to my history, I needed to make a very solid choice before I ventured into a serious relationship. Our marriage is now over 34 years old and better than ever.
It was a choice.
Now he has cancer. I have another decision to make. Do I worry and fret? Or do I trust in the God I say I believe in? No one else can trust for me. So I look toward heaven and make a statement.
“I’ve decided to trust You”.
I look back over the years and see He has brought me through so many painful experiences … always by my side. Why should I doubt now?
It’s a choice.
“And again, “I will put my trust in him.” Hebrews 2:13 (NIV)
