Now with God's promise in hand, Susan still waited for her groom to return. But since God never wastes the waiting times, He began to move in her life once again. He began to orchestrate the events of her life in order to prepare her for the fulfillment of His promise, and for her wedding day. In doing so, He began to paint a beautiful picture depicting how all His people should live in preparation for His return and for their ultimate wedding day to Him as His bride, the Church. Through the events of Susan's life, God unveiled a message that spoke about His desire that we all begin living lives that testify to Him. It was a blessed time, as it seemed that nothing happened to Susan that didn't have symbolic spiritual significance for everyone.
During this time, God called Susan to write another book. She obeyed and was inspired to call this new book Bridge Stories. Just as a bridge once connected Jerusalem with the Temple Mount, bringing people closer to the temple where God resided, these stories are meant to lead people into a deeper relationship with the Lord. They are meant to help readers discover their own story. We were all meant to be a bridge that leads others to Christ.
God eventually revealed even greater symbolism within the name Bridge Stories. These stories are what got Susan from His promise to His fulfillment-from her maiden name to her hyphenated married name. The waiting time can be sweet if we continue to focus on the Lord and trust in His faithfulness. Jesus is our Bridegroom, who although feels like a long time coming, will truly return for us all someday on the clouds.
