We are now less than 20 days till Arielle and I get hitched (as the folks back home say).
Pray for God’s guarding angels to protect all those who are driving or flying down to the wedding.
Pray for God’s favor as Arielle and I wrap up the last minute things that need to be done, that things go smoothly and at a good discounted price.
We know that the enemy will try to take this time of celebration to a time of fustration. I bind up the enemy and his plans and tell him to get out of here in the name of Jesus’ my rock and my salvation!
I pray that God will bless all those involved in the planning, all of those who are spending time and or money to help us get things in order, and all of those attending this blessed event.
Arielle and I appreciate all of your prayers, and hopefully we’ll get to see you at the wedding!
Last weekend a visiting Pastor spoke an amazing word from God into my life. I’m not going to make them post it here at this point, maybe sometime in the future. But the main point was that God has a plan for my life. It was an amazing word that I will try to desperately to hang on to in the comming months as life becomes hectic with marriage plans and as we begin our married life, I know at times life will be tough. And this will be promise and a reminder to come back and to trust God during those times.
Oh and something else really cool was that this word tied directly to something Pastor Michele spoke over me a long time ago. The man of God last week had no idea.
God has a plan… Details to follow.
It’s been a little less than six months since I moved to Florida, but I feel like those months could easily have been a lifetime. Sometimes I find it hard to even remember the name of the town I used to live in, or remember the faces of my old friends. Those memories haven’t been wiped away, but new wonderful memories have been laid over top. Memories of new friends, new places to live and work, memories of an amazing new love of my life, and the return of an old love of my life to His rightful place in my heart.
There were times in my past when all I would do is dwell on the things of the past, old friends, old mistakes, or spend time wishing for a better life. But now I’m focused on the future, my regrets have been wiped away by hope and love. No longer am I haunted by the things I wish I had done, but rather I’m overjoyed by the thought of the things to come. God has blessed me in a mighty way. He used pain and sorrow to get me out of a rut, out of a life headed no where, and into a life of love. If these last months have been a lifetime, then I look forward to a new lifetime, a married life, full of joy and love.
I’m not naive, I know there will be tough times ahead. But I know, that through it all He will be there. At the end of the race we will look back, and not see the fights, saddness, or loss, no the good times will out way the bad. And we will see that even in the midst of the rough times God’s hand was there all along taking care of us, guiding us along the path.
I love you Arielle.
