I want to tell you about a girl named Allie. Allie is hilarious, spunky, and unapologetically herself. She is also one of the most kindhearted and forgiving humans, to the point where she inspires and convicts you at the same time to have more grace and compassion in your own heart.
I have known Allie for a few years, and she has become very close to my heart. She is always looking to learn more and figure out who God is and what having a relationship with Him looks like.
I went out to dinner with Allie a few weeks ago and we were talking about family, love, and the meaning of marriage. She comes from a family of divorce, so marriage is a touchy topic to her. However, as we continued to talk, she compared marriage to commitment, how Jesus is committed to us and how we should be to Him. I sat there is awe as she made that connection and even though marriage scares her because of her family’s experience, she still knew it was made for a good thing from God.
I ask that you pray with me for Allie as she is growing and learning more in her faith walk and also healing for her and her family from past hurts.
