My blog friend Marie wrote this some time ago. I’ve shared it once before, but I love it so much, and feel so compelled to share it that I’m reposting once more. Peace, Light and Love, CordieB.
There was this girl who was Christian and this guy who was Muslim they fell in love. They wanted to get married and live their lives together. Then Religion was brought into the relationship. He told her that if they got married the kids would have to be his religion. She quickly responded that she wanted her kids to be Christians. There was an invisible wall put up between them from that moment on. Her love for him grew strong and she even thought that maybe she could change him or find a way to persuade him that it could work. But this thought of how much she loves Jesus kept coming into her mind and that her kids would not be able to feel that love from Jesus or for Jesus if she was marry him and have kids with him. He was also very concerned if he would marry her about the fate of their children’s soul. He told her that if she could not agree that the children would be Muslim then they would have to end the relationship.
Many nights she cried herself to sleep over this situation then one morning while crying her heart out to Jesus she heard a very stern voice. The voice said, “My plan is greater than your plan, you asked me to bring you a husband that you can love with all of your heart and he would love you with all of his heart and I did, do not make this complicated don’t allow your differences to destroy a LOVE that has come from above.”
Well, they separated he went his way she went her way. They often thought of each other and prayed for each other and the thoughts filled with that burning love would flow in the wind across oceans and deserts reminding each that they still exist and that they were each others true love. She soon married and man who was Christian and who loved her dearly, and she gave birth to a handsome boy.
One day her world came crashing down around her. Her handsome son returned home from college and he was a changed man! He told her about this religion that was introduced to him and how it touched his heart so deeply and he knows that it is right for him. Her son had converted to Islam.
