I was washing dishes a couple of weeks ago, and out of the blue, my mom says to me; “Michaela, do you remember when you were five or six years old, you told everybody that your Daddy was going to pick out your husband for you?”
I was surprised (in a good way), and replied; “No, I don’t remember. When did I tell people?” “When people asked you who your boyfriend was … and really, you told anybody!” I had been struggling with a crush at that time, and I thought about what my mom had said, but soon forgot it.
Last week, my friend and I were doing a Bible Study about wrong thoughts, and I confessed to her that I had been struggling with a crush lately. She told me that things like that were not worthwhile, and I asked her to pray for me in that area. I made a pact to work really hard to memorize the verse that week, which was Psalms 19:14; “May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be acceptable in your presence, Adonai my rock and redeemer.” It helped tremendously … I started to see the guy as a friend and brother in Yeshua.
Today I was going through old folders, when I came across a certificate that said I wanted my Daddy to be the keeper of my heart, and that I will accept his guidance. I remember signing this a few years back. I have always tried to accept Daddy’s guidance (though not always with a right heart), trying to uphold that promise.
Now that I’m older, I want to make a new certificate. I also want to challenge each of you girls to make a certificate (if you haven’t already), you and your dad sign it, and try to uphold it. Your decisions will always effect your future in some way – good or bad. ALWAYS remember, both of your Daddys love you.
