It’s hard to believe that in only 4 days I will be getting married. It seems surreal that the time has come after years of wondering who it would be, how it would happen, and dreaming of all the things I would like to do and then suddenly it is upon me. Everyone keeps asking me if i am nervous or stressed and I think people expect me to be nervous, but honestly I’m not nervous at all. I have no doubts, no worries, and I am so sure that this is right that I am at complete peace. The only taxing part of the deal is getting everything ready for the wedding ceremony.
I do have a deep desire to continue in prayer for the wedding, our marriage, and all the things I believe God has in store for us in the future. The scripture verse I read today was found in John 14.
“And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. you may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” – John 14:13-14
I am hopeful that God will be glorified in our marriage and in our ceremony. I have always wanted our wedding to be a worshipful experience that focuses not only on our commitment to one another but the vows that we are making before God. I pray that our relationship with God is an example to those around us and that it is clearly evident that our engagment, marriage, vows, and future relationship is and will continue to be built on the foundation of our relationship with Jesus.
Thank you for the grace and mercy that you have given us through your son Jesus Christ. Lord I am a sinner and deserve nothing less than eternal punishment for my transgressions against a God that is so pure and holy, and yet by your grace you sent your son to die in my place and it is by the righteousness of Christ that has been imparted to me that I stand pure and holy before you. God I owe you nothing less than my life and even my life is not enough to repay you for what you have done for me. Lord my desire now is that Kendall and I will serve you in our marriage, giving our lives to you and doing all that is necessary to be pleasing to you in our relationship with one another and in our personal relationships with you. God, be with our wedding this Saturday and with all of the technical details that go along with doing something of this magnitude, and let us not lose focus of the purpose of the day and the vow that we are making before you. Be glorified in us as we are so satisfied in you God. I ask these things in the precious and holy name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
