Did God send you your spouse?

Do you think God sent you your spouse? Meaning did one day the person who became your spouse just showed up in you life? Did you feel that it was God as Work?

If so, how did He do it? Did you just coincidentally meet you spouse? Did it happen through a friend?, or did they just come floating out of the sky with an umbrella?

Yes, I believe that I met my spouse on a divine appointment. He was unsaved and I met him in a pub, he was pretty rough and ready, but he told me I was different and my face 'shone' What he didn't know was that I had prayed a few days before that God would make my face shine and people would see it!

I knew instantly that he would get saved and that I would be instrumental in it... I had NO idea I would end up marrying him once that had happened. If you had told me then I would have laughed in your face!!

He knew very early o and then he wooed me

charligirl,

Thanks. This pub, was this somewhere that you went to often, or just someplace that you happened to end up. Also, was this the first time that you had seen your spouse to be, or had you seen him before? Also, at the time were you looking and or praying for someone? If so, how long had you been?

Yes, without a doubt God sent me my husband. Like I have stated in a previous post awhile back...

I dreamed of my husband months before I ever met him and in the dream I was shown my future. My dream came true. God did indeed send him to me. We have been married for 16 wonderful years and I thank God every day that he sent this beautiful man to me.

Angle Dust,

That is an amazing story. In the dream, were you certain at the time of the dream that it was a message from God? Also, can you tell me about you met him. I don't mean to be nosy, I am just curious to see how God works in this area of our lives.

I wouldn't say that God sent me my husband so much as I wasn't planning on marrying this guy.

I met my husband at chuch. We didn't like each other one bit. I thought he was a real nerd, and he thought I was "a ditzy loud mouth chick" (those were his exact words) I was interested in another man and was trying to form a friendship with him, like talking to him after church and stuff. When it seemed the next thing I knew, this other guy and I decided we had had enough of bagging each other out, and being rude to each other, and we went out for dinner (he asked me out - I was so shocked, I went along just because I kinda felt sorry for him he was a loner and a bit nerdy) 6 weeks later we were engaged!!! I have no idea really of how it happened, because he was NOT the guy I would have chosen to marry. I think God really had his hand in it all. Needless to say, I do not think he is nerdy at all, or ugly either. To me he is the most attractive man in the world, yes he is quiet and intelligent, but definitely not nerdy.

Wow sounds like God did some major intervention in your case. It's kind of like he said no not that one, and plopped the right one in your lap.

God introduced me to a bevy of beautiful, and some not so beautiful, women. Eventually I chose one I liked and told God I was going to pursue her unless God gave me a clear sign not to. It wasn't easy but I won her heart and we've been together 9 years.

How exactly did God introduce you? How did he work?

In the dream I cant say that I knew it was a message from God, but I did realize that it was after meeting him. He says he did not talk about religion freely until we met. After we met he would talk to me about religion very openly and I with him. We have always believed that God gives us what riches we do have and we believe that a loving family is one of the greatest riches a person can be blessed with.


I met him on McDonalds parking lot...I was "cruising" (I'm from the 80's) with one of my friends and he was with several of his friends. He asked me what my name was and after that we talked for a short while. We didnt see each other for a couple of weeks and just happened to run into each other again. We both "criused" the same very small town on the weekends and had never ran into or had ever seen each other before. When I met him it was dark and I didnt see him as well as I would have had it been daylight. When I seen him the second time it was daylight and he was in a different vehicle without his friends and I told my friend "Hey, there's Dave" and she insisted that it was not and I kept insisting that it was. Finally we caught up with him and it most definately was him. I knew it was him the second time I met him because he was clearly the man of my dreams...literally.

....we fell in love and got married...had 2 girls that were also in my dream. God had shown me my future family in my dream...Why God chose to reveal this to me before hand, I'm really am not sure. Other than the fact that it gave me comfort to know that I already knew this man who would be my future husband.

I love him more and more every day and I thank God every day for giving me the life he chose me to have. I love my life. Its a very blessed life with God, my wonderful husband, and my 2 girls in it...what else could a girl want!

Thanks for asking!

God Bless
