Episode 176: From Single to Married in 4 Months (Part 1): A Conversation With My Former Client, Arlyn
Check out today’s episode with my former client, Arlyn, who’s been married for over a year now!
Arlyn was the type of woman who genuinely loved her single life (a little too much!), but became a converted skeptic and is now loving married life with her husband.
I have so many great questions for her about her single-to-married season:
… what her biggest roadblocks were,
… how she met her husband,
… how she knew he was the right person for her,
… and what changes she had to make in order to move toward marriage.
I also asked her to share all of the big and small miracles that took place in her life prior to her even meeting her husband. The miracles didn’t stop there though, they continued into their dating relationship!
You’ll have to tune in to learn more!
Arlyn’s prayer list from January 2019:
This year I vow to DO what I CAN do:
- pray & fast
- spend time wisely and intentionally
- be social and friendly
- trust God
- obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit
- operate in faith not fear and believe that God will SUPERNATURALLY do what I cannot do:
- heal my broken heart
- provide divine encounters with the right people
- multiply time and opportunities
- orchestrate the events of my life
The acronym Arlyn referenced was created by Megan Starbuck in her book, Surprised By Marriage: A Cynics Guide To Believing In Love. I interviewed Megan in 2019; you can listen to the episode here: #80: From the Cynical Single to the Optimistic Wife (Part 1) with Megan Starbuck
Lysa Terkeurst quote from her book, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way, page 82:
“Wine left on its dregs, not poured from one jar to another, means it’s been sitting in comfort for so long that it has absorbed the aroma of complacency. Winemakers at the time of Jeremiah would pour wine from jar to jar for two reasons. First, so the wine wouldn’t absorb the flavor of the vessel, and second, to rid the wine of the dregs or the sediment that would settle into the bottom and prevent the wine from being pure.”
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
