The Bride-to-be (Probably Part 1)

After 3 weeks, the engagement is not as engaging. You both go back to your own lives and seek to continue doing your thing.

Somehow, this puzzles me.

.

.

.

We’ve done some planning, searching, praying, etc. But here’s the catch: these are all hard when WAITING is involved.

.

.

.

I’m having a hard time with waiting now. It’s not easy. Some days, it’s…

When will our parents know about our plans? Will they agree? I hope they help out. Will the church help, too? I think some of my friends would really help. I praise God for them. Will I invite (insert long-lost-but-dearly-loved person’s name)? I hope she understands.

Other days, it’s…

Everything’s going to be alright. Take it easy.

BUT mostly, it’s..

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Am I even doing it right?

.

.

.

Today is just that day. I feel restless. I feel that nothing’s right ’cause I’m all doing it wrong. I don’t know. I really don’t know.

.

.

BUT

ctto

inside of me, a voice speaks…

.

.

.

“You don’t have to know everything. You’ll just have to abide in ME. You are my bride, and I care about everything you’re going through. I heard the cries, I treasured your joys. I also know where this is going. And it’s all beautiful and glorious. I know it all. I want you to enjoy the journey. Be safe and secured. Be safe that I am with you and will take care of you — both of you.You’re tired. Take a step back, breathe. Rest and we’ll walk on when you’re ready. I love you, my bride. You’ll get through. You’ll get there.”

.

.

.

I may not know what’s bringing me down right now. But I will hold on, and let You take hold of everything. My Groom, I will trust You. Even with all these feelings, I will trust in what I know…

.

.

.

That You love and care for us.
