I loved this from Journey to the Cross today. All of us girls want the fairytale of a prince on a white horse riding in to rescue us:
Princes are easier to understand than God, and it's tempting to give our trust to whoever will fill those princely shoes. But we need our faith. Remember that God’s plans will not perish. Far beneath our logical selves, we need deep trust in the all-powerful being who lifts us up and who will reign for all generations.
My husband is my prince, but as much as I want him to have control over rescuing us and taking me home, I know our path is truly set by God. I have to keep praying that God shows my prince favor and sends us that white horse ASAP, please. :-)
