Message from Marc Cram, High School Teacher

This past summer has been very eye opening and interesting for me. Throughout the summer I really started to get into the dating scene and meeting some new people. I signed up for eHarmony to meet people and see if God would open any doors. Through this experience I learned so much about God and really grew closer to Him. My whole intent of dating is to meet someone with the purpose of finding a woman to marry. Through this summer I went on a few dates and my heart was really opened to hear from God and really trust in Him to provide for me. I started the summer pursuing what I wanted, but after a couple of dates that didn’t go anywhere I found myself praying more and really seeking God for guidance on the person that I am supposed to be with. I really had to start trusting that God will provide the right person for me and trust in Him when I meet someone and it doesn’t work out.
How many times do we trust in God? Trust in Him and not have a backup plan? We always have plan. In our world we have trained ourselves to have a plan, and then a backup plan.

As it says in Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."

This has been the verse of the summer for me. I have really had to trust that God has a plan and a path for me and nothing that I can do will be better than what he has planned. I have met many gals over the summer and with each one I know that I am trusting in God more and more to provide for me. I want what He has planned for me and the woman that He has in store for me. Is it hard to trust in God and wait on Him to move? Heck yeah it is!! There are so many times where I find myself screaming at God wondering when He will provide, but I know the answer every time, be patient, wait and trust.
What is happening in your life that you need to trust in God to guide you or provide for you? Do you have a backup plan already in place, or are you waiting on the Lord to show you the path He wants you to take?

Remember to trust in the Lord with EVERYTHING and He will make sure your provided for. Will it be hard? Yes, but once He provides, it is so much better than you could ever imagine!


  1. The right person is just around the corner for you.
    Trusting God -He always is right on time with the right things that we need.

  2. WOW! That hit me square between the eyes. I trust God while I am making my back up plan!! Throwing away the Plan B book and sticking with the Plan A book... the bible!

  3. Mark, Thanks for sharing. That is a great testimony of trusting God and applying His truths. Well done and I can't wait to meet the one He provides. Blessings!

  4. Marc,

    Thanks for this honest and transparent message of where you are in your faith journey.

    Thanks for sharing how God is teaching you ever more on trust.

    May this trust be rooted in a Divine intimate relationship.

    May all of our future relationships be rooted first in the Divine and then with each other.
