If they sow into the Spirit, one day they will be able to give their spouses a godly mate to share their lives with.

A mate who will know how to get a hold of God in time of need, one who has the Word hid in his / her heart, and one who will not be tossed to and fro like the waves of the sea.

"Ellen, will you put your dating life on the altar?

" This question haunted me for a little while, for I knew that He was asking me to trust Him with the question of marriage.

He kept pouring more and more of His presence in my life, teaching me out of the Scriptures, and visiting me in my devotions. Words cannot describe the way I felt as God fulfilled all my longings to be married, "For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name." (Isa 54:5).

At one point, I was so satisfied that I even thought that maybe God wanted me to remain single.

Finally, after much prayer, I made a covenant with the Lord, wrote it on paper, signed it, and prayed over it with my pastors wife.

The Bible says that "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" (John ).

It was a warm, beautiful day in So Paulo, Brazil, on March 16, 1996. The music, the flowers, and the food were just perfect.

Our families and friends were together for this important event.

John, has been to me, the Lord took me back to a Friday night in 1991...

That was the night I became faithful to my husband-to-be, not having met him yet.
