I know that was true in my life. I was just getting by when God decided it was time to get my attention. I was too bullheaded to see all the small gestures He made. Sometimes it takes a brick wall to stop a freight train.

We offer them God’s word and tell them they will be blessed to do things God’s way. They agreed to get married and I met with them for their 1st counseling session. He said he was unemployed and would do ANYTHING for a job to take care of his soon to be wife and 2 mo. old child. In less than 15 min. I had him a job. He could start the next day. We continued on with counseling and talked about how God would be so important in their relationship. We set the date for the wedding and things were going fine until the next day. He never shows up for work and they never call Judy to schedule the wedding. Jesus asked the question, DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WHOLE? Some people don’t want a healing, just a quick fix. Like Pastor Diehl, we have to reach out to the Great Physician for healing. Until this couple shows they are serious about the GREAT PHYSICIAN and working, I will counsel them not to get married. The root problem is and should be our major focus. God wants us whole, not mended. Sometimes it takes real pain to get our attention. It takes obedience to the physician for healing to come. God help us all to be obedient to Your word!!
