Let me tell you about how much I enjoy being covered by the man that God designed for me to mind. On March 26, 2017 our town was hit by a terrible storm from a hovering tornado that subsequently touched down a neighboring city. After the first wave of bad weather the children and I went to bed at 8:30 pm while Kevin stayed awake. We slept PEACEFULLY! I was awakened shortly after midnight by our bedroom lights when the electricity came back on. As I blew out the candles, Kevin let me know that everything was okay, we did have some damage, and that he was finally going to sleep.
I decided to check my phone before going back to bed and that’s when I saw the missed calls and text messages from concerned family and friends. I also checked our neighborhood Facebook group where I saw the pictures posted by my husband and other neighbors showcasing the local damage. Prior to going to sleep I followed every instruction given by Kevin and I knew we were going to be okay because he said so. I had no idea what was going on outside after I closed my eyes. While we were sleeping my husband stayed on watch, assessed our damages, gathered and shared information with the local firemen that were on scene, and even drove throughout our neighborhood to offer immediate assistance where he could. Y’all, I love this man!
On March 26, 2017 our entire day was filled with several emergencies ranging from bad to worse but I’ve never felt more peace. I’ve only shared the evening emergency in this blog; however, there were several other events that required our immediate attention and reaction, starting at 8:15 am on that Sunday morning. After each occurrence Kevin didn’t sit on the news but rather quickly assessed, created a plan, and immediately put it into action. He put his logic, initiative, and problem solving skills to work and coupled it with prayer and encouraging words to ease my mind and our children. My husband assured me that things would be taken care of and that we were going to be okay. I believed him.
I believe him.
I believe IN him.
God is the same way when it comes to the issues of life. If you are his child, staying rooted in his word, being obedient and continuing to walk the narrow path then you have no reason to fear. Yes, life happens but God has already assessed your situation, created a plan, and will guide you as he sets every noun (person, place, or thing) in motion. Don’t fret, worry, or be dismayed because His system is designed for His children to remain victorious. Remember, the bible is filled with verses that should serve as instant encouragement and reminders that we are victors and conquerors. As I read God’s ordained word, I believed Him.
I believe Him.
I believe IN Him.
On March 26th, we slept peacefully in the storm because we trusted our leader wholeheartedly and will follow him anywhere without (much) question. Yes I said “much” because I am human. My husband made sure his family was safe and then went to help others. I’ve never been more proud of him. As we slept and dreamt, he worked diligently to ensure his household was awakened in safety and peace. Again, he also quickly navigated us through “life happening” situations throughout the entire day and made sure we had everything we needed. That’s why I am so thankful to be married to the man that God designed for me to mind. God has blessed our family with a phenomenal protector, provider, and priest that truly loves and sacrifices for us just as his word commands.
Kevin, I will continue to be obedient to you as the lord of our home just as our vows stated. You’ve kept your word and have earned my complete trust in every aspect of our lives. I feel so safe with you. I know I can count on you to go above and beyond the call of duty without hesitation. You are a grand man and I’m so honored that you chose me to spend your life with. Thank you for your love and leadership on every day and especially on March 26, 2017.
