The month of June is full of weddings. What an exciting time in the lives of two people and their families.
Marriage is a sacred journey between two people. After my first marriage, I remained single for almost 19 years. I understood that I had a lot of learning, growing and healing to do.
I used my time of singleness to serve God and to prepare myself for my future. I had a very intimate relationship with the Lord. I was very involved in church and several ministries. I had a strong prayer life and I learned how to hear the voice of God so very clearly.
Then one day God said in a whisper, “Im going to change your name.” I didn’t quite know what he meant. A few weeks later God began to put the desire for a husband in my heart.
When God started preparing my heart for a husband, I was SO Afraid. I questioned God. I asked Him, “Who is going to cover me like you cover me? Who is going to love me like you love me? Who is going to make me feel like a princess, the way that You do? I dont want him, God, if he doesn’t remind me of you.”
I never knew I could love someone so much.
True Love is beautiful. My husband wasnt the one that gave me wings, but he was the one that reminded me that I was Created to fly.
So if you are single, taking the next step to marriage is nothing to be taken lightly. Be very sure before saying, “I Do.”
The Bible says this about marriage:
New King James Version (NKJV)
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
