Today I got engaged.

With permission, M’s diary entry January 15, 2014.

Today, I got engaged.

When I woke up, I knew that this was going to happen. I was prepared.

So I kneeled. He proposed, but I was on my knees. I am the bride, but He’s the one that accepted me.
Of all the places in the world, I would’ve never imagined Thailand. He prepared a good surprise.

Today, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Today, for the first time, I praised the Lord in his own language.
Today, for the first time, I understood why people are not afraid when they get engaged. Today, I wasn’t afraid. I didn’t look back. I was 100% sure of what I was getting myself into, and I really wanted it.

Jesus – today, I know who you are. And you are the one I want.
