Yup, you read the title right. I get married this Saturday to the most amazing, Godly, wonderful, loving man on this earth, and I couldn't count myself more blessed- or happy! Our story started long ago, and I had no idea then that it would turn out so beautifully. Since we began courting each other, it's been amazing watching God knit our hearts together and bring us closer.
It hardly feels real that in a few days time I'll be married to the love of my life. If you had asked me a year ago where I thought I'd be July 2015, it would not have been preparing for my wedding! But the beauty of it is that neither he nor I saw it coming. God did. Oh, He knew the whole time. In fact, if I had a guess, He was looking down from heaven with eager expectation.
Friends, ladies, let me tell you something: Our Father in heaven surely has someone out there for you. A year ago, I was like you. I wasn't sure I'd find the right one. In this season of waiting, don't look farther than Jesus to fill your desire for love. Even after God brings you a husband, He should remain your first priority. Without Him in the middle of any relationship, it is certain to fail. Learn to make the best of this season, because it may be coming to an end sooner than you think. ;-) Finally, don't forget to trust God with this. He knows you inside and out, and He's got something amazing planned, I promise.
In closing, in a few days I'm getting married. Whew. Marriage isn't going to be some fairy-tale, or easy, nor will it be perfect; but it will be beautiful, hopeful, and worth it. I'm ready for this next adventure. I'm ready to see all God has in store. Blessings to you all! I'll be back in a week or so. :)
