The most rewarding of all my events is being a wedding planner, because Marriage is a gift - an amazing blessing from God. It doesn't matter if it is your first or second it is a new beginning with someone special in your life. It is part of your story full of everlasting memories.
Praying God's Word over your Marriage will be the most important activity you will do together from the the day you say, "I Do". Everyday going forward will be a choise and commitment to each other.
I came across a piece written by Debbie McDaniel, where she writes that although Marriage is a gift and a blessing, the greatest gifts in life are not always cherished the way they should be. Maybe because life gets busy, or we get hurried and distracted. Maybe because we start to take one another for granted. Or we disagree and let resentments hang on longer than they should.
Life gets hard.The baggage we bring along from our past doesn’t help much either. What worked for us as two individuals, coping with the everyday stresses of life, may not work so well when joined as “one.” We spin our wheels comparing our own marriage to the next one over, complaining about the problems; falsely thinking it might propel the other to action. We long for brighter tomorrows, but instead get stuck, in regret and hurt. We begin to drift away. And sadly, many times, we start looking for the nearest door marked “Exit.” There’s a battle over marriages today, and the enemy would love nothing more than to bring disunity and destroy yours.
Don't let him win. Always remember your battle is not with your spouse but with The enemy and his aim is to destroy. God’s aim is to build up.
Make a daily choice and commitment to each other, so that you can withstand the enemy's attacks.
Fill your marriage with Love, Kindness, Adoration, Blessing, Commitment, Belief, Courage, Encouragement, Endurance, Faithfulness, Favour, Forgiveness, Friendship, Fruitfulness, Generosity, Gentleness, Grace, Health, Hope, Humility, Integrity, intimacy, Joy, Oneness, Protection, Peace, Provision, Purity, Purpose, Respect, Self-Control, Servant-Hearted, Strength, Submission, Thankfulness, Trust, Understanding, Value, Wisdom.
I pray blessings over your marriage full of memories for a lifelong story.
