The moment we begin to think we have it all figured out, or that we know it all, we need to stop! We need to stop thinking and start walking with God. As we walk with Him, we experience Him in new ways. We allow God to show us things we never understood. We begin to live things we once thought were impossible. God is so much greater and deeper than our simple minds. The longer I walk with Him, I realize how much more there is to Him than I realized.
I once thought I had an understanding of His love. I'm not negating my experience, knowledge or personal understanding I have gained through the year. But I am continually learning more and more about Him and His love. I realize even the great depth of understanding I once had, is just a drop compared to the ocean of depth there is to Him.
Then you get married, and during your first year together you develop an intimacy. You finish each other's thoughts and sentences. You ofter wonder how you ever got along without them. Now you are waist deep in the ocean. You know them better than anyone. But as time continues, you are now swimming in the ocean. You wonder where they start and you end. You develop a deeper understanding of how they work and what their needs are. You often feel like you know them better than they know themselves. Even now that my late husband is gone, I continue to gain a deeper understanding of him. I thought when we got married I "knew" him. Five years into the marriage I thought I had him figured out. But the longer time passes the more I realize how my understanding of him as a person has grown.
