Abby Muys-Wolf Is Amazing III: The Blessing In Disguise!

December 26, 2012

Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech,

“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? (Proverbs 1:20)

Read part two here

After years of Mike and I trying to cure Abby and Abby trying to get Mike to see the Truth so that they could stay together, it became clear to Abby that Mike wasn’t budging. Abby knew what the Bible says about mixed yokes and even though she had been sinning in that way the entire time, which her and Mike’s heart paid for it in spades, they were dating out of her love for Mike and Mike’s love for her, but she knew she could never marry him if he didn’t know the Truth.

Many people don’t understand this part of Scripture but like everything in the Bible it makes perfect logical and rational sense. Imagine your husband speaking a different language than you and he’s not willing to learn yours even though it’s the native language. Imagine your husband not understanding that there’s a third party that controls everything and loves him in ways he could never imagine. Imagine your husband not seeing, hearing and feeling the signs, signals and prompts that this third party gives us everyday. Imagine your husband sinning and then when bad things happen, not understanding that you reap what you sew and that sin has a natural consequence every time that is much greater than any apparent good feeling or short cut it may have produced. This type of relationship isn’t possible and Abby and GOD know it and now you do too.

So after a year or so of what I’m sure was intense prayer and torment for Abby, and only torment for Mike, they broke things off. They were semi dating, not seeing each other much for that last year as Abby waited for GOD to do His thing, but GOD clearly had other plans for both Mike and Abby. Amazing plans for both that defy human understanding.

For Abby He has blessed her with an amazing husband who happens to also be named Mike. He’s blessed her with amazing sisters, parents, and other family and friends. He’s blessed her with an amazing Spirit, attitude, personality, beauty and knowledge of Him.  And He’s blessed her with a brain tumor! Yes I said “blessed” with an exclamation point. The tumor has come to define her life in order to glorify GOD. This is something that I couldn’t wrap my head around until a few months ago when I met with Abby to talk about the fundraiser we were doing for her bills. When her and Mike were dating, Abby and I were close enough  and she was awesome enough not to get offended when I would ask cynically and not in so many words “where’s your GOD now, how do you rationalize this?” And she would promptly answer my question with some mumbo-jumbo that had something to do with a Spirit and I would start throwing apparent logic and science at her, but she never waivered. Not even when that waver would mean she could marry the guy she loved and who loved her deeply.  It takes more faith to think this is all fake, that Abby, me and millions of others are completely delusional, than it does to understand the Truth. What’s your rational explanation for all of this???

To be continued….

   Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;

     whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.

    Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;

     rebuke the wise and they will love you.

   Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;

     teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.

  (Proverbs 9:7-9)
