In just 9 days time I was due to marry my soul-mate, my best friend, my fiance, my lover, my partner, my encourager, my keeper, my comforter, my supporter, my confident, my knight in shinning armour, my protector, my husband to be! I can’t quite believe that it was meant to be just under 10 days until I got to marry my amazing man and spend my whole life laughing and goofing around with him. I was really looking forward to it however the world situation has changed and we are on lockdown. We are not able to come and go from our houses. We are not able to see each other. We are not able to go out and it is hard.
9 days is not a very long time for anything, and it certainly is not long enough to our wedding, we have so much to do and so much to think about that it is almost scary! We just wish in 9 days time we are able to get married as we are super excited to show people how much we love each other and how much we love God. As God is in the centre of our lives we want Him to be the centre of our marriage and our ceremony. God was the one who gave us life and bought us together and He will keep us together through thick and thin and we want to give thanks to Him. I know that our married life will be different and we will experience different things but what I do know is that what God has joined together He will not let any man separate. He will keep us together, He will keep us close to Him, He will keep us focused on Him. I know that God has a plan and I look forward to seeing what He has planned for our lives and what we can do to bring glory to Him.
I can’t believe that I have gone from being Single, to having a Boyfriend to then being engaged to now getting married in however many days. What an amazing journey and an amazing chapter that we are now about to start together. The journey that I have been on has been hard but God has been there and He has supported me through everything that I have done. I look forward to seeing how God uses us and develops us to be more like Him. It is beautiful to see the journey of both of us growing up from children through to teenagers to now being adults and part of the world and now about to start our adventure together as a married couple and then eventually having a family. We don’t know what is in store for us and we don’t know what God has planned but what we do know is that we will trust in Him and He will be faithful to us. I know that many people will have their opinions and will think they know better but I know that God knows better and He will help us through this marriage.
As much as being single and young brings up challenges so does being older and being married. We have to be more mature, we have the bills to pay, we have a flat to deal with, we have ‘adult’ things to do and it will be hard. There will be times when we don’t know what we are doing but life will be good because I have the one I love next to me. No matter how many people tell you there is no ‘perfect’ marriage and not ‘perfect’ couple. We will let each other down and we will do things that upset the other person but God will help us to forgive each other and He will help us to keep going even when the path gets rocky. As our marriage journey is soon to start in some days time we know that as God has helped us in the past He will help us in the present and in the future to put Him at the centre and to think about Him more and more.
9 days time will come quickly but we may not get married. However later in the year we will have a celebration and we look forward to seeing family and friends that we haven’t seen in ages. We have people coming from Colombia, Sweden and America and it is so exciting. Not only am I excited and thrilled about getting married I am anticipating how God is going to use us in the future and God will guide us in our personal and married life. As much as I am marrying the man of my dreams and I love him so much I know that he will let me down and we will have tough times but God does not and He will be there when no one else is. Bring on our wedding day soon and the blessings that will come from it.
