Fairytales Do Come True || Speedway Car Museum -Stephen & Araebia Engagement Session || Dover Vineyard || Concord, NC

When I started this journey 5 years ago, I was broken and hurt. I thought what I needed was a new husband to replace the one that I had…but what I really needed was for my savior to heal all the broken pieces and make me whole. There was a void that was missing and it wasn’t things, clothes, jewelry or a man. It was God. When the commandment said he’s a jealous God and do not put idols before Him…believe that. He will give and truly take away.

After several years of healing I begin to look to Him who provided for me. He gave me every single thing I needed and not one person would He allow to take His credit. What a mighty God I serve.

Four years later, God told me to thank Him because my husband was in his way. So that’s exactly what I did. I just thanked him for everything. I brought a journal and begin to pray for my non-existent yet almost on his way husband. I’m sure there are some women who understand where I’m coming from.

A few months ago, I started attending a women’s group and I decided to become transparent and ask them to pray for my husband. The group leader gave me this prayer that I copied and begin to pray daily. 2 months after that, I received some amazing news from Abba Father. My husband is here, he knows who I am and he’s about to introduce himself. Also, things are going to go REALLY FAST!!!!  Not a timeline that the world would understand.

Meanwhile, while I’m praying God was doing exactly what He said he would. He was preparing my husband for me. He begin to change everything about his past. Take away the things that wasn’t pleasing to Him and turn him into the man of God he’s becoming. He changed his identity and began to look like his image…Abba Father. The glory is all over Stephen.  I’m telling you, it’s like a fairytale.

Stephen and I started dating, and things went extremely fast. From being his friend, to courting to engagement and now we’re about to be married – PHEW!!!! This is something ONLY God could have done. I am blessed beyond measure to have such an amazing man in my life. One that prays for me, over me, covers me and my children and most importantly loves the Father with everything inside of him. With all the evil in this world, I’m so blessed to have been blessed with a diamond in the rough. Now this was worth the tears…. Proverbs 18:22
