And along came Prince Charming.....

There is such a thing, ya know. Someone for everyone. A soul mate. The one person God created just for you.

Every morning I wake up struggling to believe that Prince Charming....MY Prince Charming....has come along.

But he has.

I've said it before and I'll say it again....I am NOT who I was just a few short years ago. God got ahold of my heart and has restored it. Given me a new vision of life, family, relationships, His world, His will.

I still have stinkin' thinkin', I'm not gonna lie....not as much as I used to but it does crop up once in a while. I dislike it very much. It makes me second guess, question my worth and want to turn and run. It's funny actually....at one time in my life I had nothing but stinkin' thinkin'. I saw nothing in me that would be of value to anyone else. I believed I deserved nothing more than the crap I got.

Today....with much hard work, sweat and tears, learning through church, pastors, friends and above all God, I see me a bit differently. I see some of the value I have and the things I offer to others around me. It's easy to slip back to the stinkin' thinkin', though, don't get me wrong, but it's a CHOICE I need to make with every thought. Taking every thought captive. Taking every word I say and every word I hear to Christ before I let it stick to my heart and form a negative opinion of me.

And that is hard, but so worth the effort.

So....back to Prince Charming. Nothing like finally having someone in my life that says NICE things, MEANS them and his actions back up his words. And....I BELIEVE him. I see his face and listen to his voice and I BELIEVE him.


Father, THANK YOU for Your Word, Your patience and Your guidance. I release to You the strongholds that are not from You or pleasing to You. You are mighty to save me from the pain that these strongholds cause. I know that my heart is Your heart and You will continue to mold me into what You created me to be. Thank you for Prince Charming....for making him a wonderful, remarkable man because of You that lives within him. I am so thankful that he seeks you just as I do....on his knees. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN and AMEN.

"The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." ~ 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

Me and my Prince Charming..... :0)

JC is my BFF....

I like your "stinkin thinkin" dialog. We all have issues that need to be addressed, but I can see God working in your life. I suspect that you are harder on yourself than is neccessary.

You seem to be in a good place to me!
