A Love to Last Forever

My husband and I just celebrated three years of marriage last month and though three years is not very long, a lot has happened to us in that short time.
When I was thinking back on our wedding day and the life experiences that have transpired since, I was reminded of how much my Heavenly Father loves me and how much I’ve experienced on my spiritual journey. I know I have grown so much and yet still have so much further to go. I am thankful that the Lord is never finished with me. He is so patient and kind, loving and merciful.
I wanted to encourage other women to remember that no matter where you are in life, God’s plan for you is never finished. He is constantly molding us into His image. Sometimes that is painful and sometimes it’s exciting but no matter what it’s beautiful because He is beautiful.
I want my life to be a beautiful reflection of my Father and for my life to encourage others to seek His face.
As women, we desperately want to be loved and accepted for who we are. We want to be told we are beautiful, intelligent, capable and strong. We want a love that lasts forever and often are looking constantly for that love in the form of earthly relationships. Though earthly relationships are important, we were created for the ultimate relationship with God and our heavenly home that we will dwell in forever. I pray that I will take the time to nourish that relationship with my Father and in turn let the overflow from that time with Him spill out into my marriage and other relationships in my life.

Looking back at some pictures from our wedding I came across this picture as we were leaving to start out on our journey together. The smiles on our faces fill my heart with so much joy. I feel you can see the anticipation of our life together in our smiles. This is just a small taste of the joy I feel when I spend time with the Lord praying or just listening to Him speak to me through His word. And I know that one day the radiance coming from us when we meet the Lord face-to-face will be so much more amazing than the best days of our lives here on earth.

Thank you, Lord, for the life you’ve given me. Thank you for writing my story that is unique to me. I pray that I will fully embrace the journey you have me on. Thank you for giving me a Love that Lasts Forever that can only be found in You.

  1. What a beautiful reminder of the Forever Love our Father has for us!! And how wonderful to remember that rainy day three years ago, when the joy on both of your faces was as bright as any sunshine could’ve been☺️!! It’s so apparent that God brought the two of you together and your love story is a blessing to so many. Even so, it’s true that no matter how magnificent our earthly loves are, they are but a drop compared to the ocean of His perfect love for us. This was so beautifully written and expressed.💛I’m so grateful for both of you, your love for each other and most of all, your heart for Jesus!!
    Love you both,

    Mom
