Growing up, I would always imagine what my wedding day would look like. I had everything figured out from the dress, to the flowers, to the cake, and even up to the guest list. The only thing that was missing was the husband. ?The movies we watched when we were kids made weddings look so exciting. Disney Princesses made sure it’s the only thing we’ll ever dream of. The perfect ending to a perfect story!
However, when you’re all grown up, your perception about weddings would change. In the movies, fairytale weddings happen at the end but in real life, it’s only the beginning of a new chapter. Personally, the more I think about it, the more scared I become; because getting married means I have to leave my family, my church, and my ministry and I’m not ready to do that just yet.
Last October 27, 2018, I had the amazing opportunity to witness two of my friends get married. The wedding was very simple yet perfectly curated. Every detail was really thought through. But the one thing that struck me the most was the bride’s vow. She mentioned that she felt scared about the responsibilities they have to face as a couple in the future but was reminded of 1 John 4:18
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
Only in Jesus you can find the perfect kind of love and if your love is from Him then there’s no reason to be afraid. The future can be scary but knowing that God is already there makes everything a lot easier. In love, there shouldn’t be any room for doubts but only joy, hope, and peace. That’s what makes it perfect.
