My wife and I just went on a mission trip to Mexico this past week and the last nigh of the trip we had a special service where the team leaders would pray over us. Now my wife and I never got into anything to personal about our lives or relationships (with each other, or God) with any of the leaders, or other members, but on that night when one of the leaders was praying over me she basically repeated things that had been weighing heavy on my heart that night about my faith. Then one of the other leaders had a chat with my wife about how she needs to start opening up to me more and trusting me more. It just baffles me because we had NEVER revealed any of these personal details to anyone, and yet they were able to talk about it like they with such detail and depth almost like they were reading our minds.

Perhaps it was God giving them insight. Perhaps they are good at reading people and they were able to pick up on a few things based on observed interactions.

God our Father knows all, He knows your heart, He knows you better than you yourself or your wife. He knows what is missing in your lives as one. Yes, I say as "One", as you are "One', not two when you enter into marriage. He knows all your shortcomings and all your strengths, even when you cannot see them.

This brings to mind one of my most favorite verses of testimony of God our Fathers Truth...

Isaiah 55 (emphasis on verse 8-9)...

8“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.



....Shalom Aleichem! (Peace be with you!)
