Love

He Waited and Waited…Find Out What Happened in This God-Centered Love Story!

Ladies, our culture is so lost in immediate gratification. We want what we want and we want it now, no matter how it may negatively affect our future. This is often the case when it comes to relationships. We rush into them because we want to feel loved and worthy. Oftentimes, we rush into them because we just don’t want to feel left out.

But we all know that rushing into a relationship for the sake of being in one often leads to a breakup. And we all know the famous saying “All good things come to those who wait,” right? Well, ladies, if any story is about waiting, this is it.

In fact, it’s an amazing story about love, patience, strength, patience, courage, patience and faith…oh, and did I say patience? It’s a long clip, but I urge you to watch the whole thing—it’s so worth it.

And don’t forget to come back and share your thoughts in the comments below!

Ladies, what did you learn from the story of Max and Bonnie-Kate?

    This video is extraordinary! Their story is so inspiring and I’m so thankful to PI for posting it. I’ve watched it several times and it never fails to amaze me. God’s work in their relationship is evident and I’m so glad they chose to make him a prominent part of the video.

    🙂
    That’s really sweet 🙂 🙂
    It’s really inspirational.
    The world says, “Live a little while you can.”
    It says, “You can do whatever you want and there won’t be any consequences for what you do.”
    But there are consequences. If you allow yourself to be patient (I admit, a lot of times, I’m not) and wait for those things that God will give you, you will find a more prosperous (if not materially then at least spiritually) life awaiting you.
    So this is for me and for all of you, please be patient my dear sisters. Whatever comes to pass, let us wait upon the Lord who strengthens us to work through us. Though death itself block our path, let us cry out to the Lord for he is mightier than all who have ever and will ever stand in our way. If only we rely on him and wait.

    That was so great to watch inspired my faith beyond belief. I am again reassured that waiting patiently on God to bring whatever HE may is the best option ever. God bless them both and all of you on your journey.

    This is beautiful. All those heartfelt and whole hearted things he said about his wife were incredible. It blew me away how long he waited and was willing to put in every effort to serve her.

    WOW! How amazing was that?! Sjoes, I desire a love story like that! Sacrifice, patience, mutual adoration and above all God’s guidance and sovereign 🙂 Yes please. I wish them happiness and success in their marriage and life together.

    Oh, my gosh!!! That is the cutest, sweetest love story I have ever seen. The way he waited for her for years and years. You don’t find that everyday. And his proposal…..Oh my gosh. I really hope that they post a follow up on their wedding!! :’)

    To add to my previous comment, but this is more proof that doing things God’s way is the best way. Trust God. I feel like this quote from God’s NOT Dead applies to Max and Bonnie Kate’s story:
    ~ He [God] gives us what we’d ask for if we knew what He knows ~

    I’m sure Max and Bonnie Kate would not have asked for a lot of what happened to them, but they trusted God through it all. Max believed that Bonnie Kate was who God had for him, so he waited. So amazing and encouraging.

    Bonnie Kate is so pretty! She reminds me of two sisters I know. I pray God makes me worthy of pursuing like Max said. I pray I am worthy of the Godly man that I dream of.
