Wedding Season and 1 am thoughts

In this weekend of endless scrolling through pictures of literally everyones wedding( I’m pretty sure there are only like 5 of us single folk left) it’s super easy to start feeling a tad jealous especially as a 29 yr old Jesus loving girl.



I love weddings and always have, I watch all the shows, have Pinterest boards and dream of being a planner someday. For years and years I planned my perfect wedding, every single little detail down to the napkins and pocket squares the groomsman would wear. I don’t know the exact moment that my heart changed, but the more I pray for my husband and our future, the wedding itself becomes less and less a focus.



We have become a generation of gorgeous and elaborate “instagram” weddings. We are putting so much effort in planning and preparing for that ONE day, But what happens after the wedding? What are we doing to prepare for marriage, for our lives after we say I do?



I’m no expert and honestly I have no experience in relationships at all🤦🏻‍♀️ What I do know is that I haven’t met my husband yet but I love him fiercely. I pray for him and our marriage more than I’ve ever prayed for anything in my life. I pray that when we profess our love before God and become one, that even in the storms and trials we face we are just that. “One” a team, a covenant that can’t be broken. I pray that we are world changers, that we save lives and bring Gods love to all those we encounter. I pray and have faith that we can break the chains of divorce in this generation. That through our endless pursuit of God and each other, we can bring hope and courage to those who thought all was lost.



I just want to encourage you all to look beyond the wedding, the honeymoon and look at what you want to see happen in your marriage. Spend more time preparing for the battles the enemy and the world will throw at you and less at what songs your guests will enjoy most or what signature drink you’ll serve.
