Right now, I’m overjoyed for two people that I love dearly who were joined today in marriage. Before the ceremony they showed us a beautiful video, after which no one could stop smiling. They talked about how they had met, what they meant to each other, and the proposal. Looking forward into my future, I can only hope to have a relationship with my husband as deep, personal, loving, honest, and Christ-centered as theirs. Today they embark on a wonderful, exciting journey together that will last for the rest of their lives. It just leaves me wondering… What do God’s plans hold for me?
I’m pretty sure that Disney has firmly instilled into the minds of most American girls that their life will be complete if they achieve their own “Prince Charming” and ride off into the sunset on a white stallion wearing a 2-carat stone on their left hand. Don’t get me wrong- I’m a hopeless romantic- but we’re truly setting ourselves up for failure. The only thing that can truly satisfy any desire we may have is a relationship with Jesus Christ, and knowing that He is all we really need. Today He’s asking “Am I enough for you?” I know that He is, that God will meet my every need, but I still feel that desire for a fairy tale ending. Once again I’m impatient for whatever I think might be in store for me. I feel a need for companionship with someone who I’m made to be with. Always longing, waiting for the day when I won’t feel quite so lonely. But… “Am I enough for you?”
It’s time to search for completion and satisfaction in God. I know I can’t possibly be ready to share life with someone else in the way that I want when I don’t even understand all of myself. God holds all the answers. Life is a quest for falling deeper in love with Him. Not only does a new couple start a new life today, but because of their shared wisdom a journey of my own begins. Seeking God with all of my heart and knowing that He is enough for me now, and for all of eternity. “I wan’t to fall in love with you.”
