God's provision

I have a wonderful friend. We met in Istanbul, Turkey and then later ended up living in the same apartment complex in Riverside, CA. We became friends and we travelled to New York City during Christmas time and took a road trip up the California coast. We had so much fun together. It was a blessing to have her in my life in the time that she was in CA. God had provided a wonderful single friend.
This past weekend I met her fiance! and once again I was reminded of God's provision. He was perfect for her. It is so incredible that Nicole waited and trusted in God and in His perfect timing, He brought her the best mate. Nicole is thirty years old and has led an amazing life. She committed to live overseas for 3 years, got her Master's degree, lived in California on faith, and moved back to Texas trusting God. That is where she met Jason. Read their story: noticenicole.blogspot.com
I think that Nicole's story is somewhat of a hopeful message for all of us out there. Not that a perfect man will come for all of us, that is not what I mean. I mean that God has everything under control. He has not forgotten us. He sees us, hears us, knows us, loves us and sancitfies us. He knows the best thing for us and His timing is perfect. Wait on Him. Do not settle for anything less. "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."

Marea. I definetely agree with deductions about "God's perfect timing." It seems that the more we trust Him with our decisions, the more faithful He is. I know I have been struggling with this very thing and it is encouraging to read your words. Thanks.
