Three Days!!! That’s how many days are left until I get to walk down the aisle and marry my best friend, my partner in crime, my biggest fan, my companion.

Yes, I’m that girl who spent hours daydreaming of this special day and have had the color scheme picked out since I can remember! lol

Although there are many beautiful elements to getting married and planning a wedding, there is one thing that tugs at my heart constantly…Offering God praise for His blessings upon my life. James 1:17 says:

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

My fiance is that good and perfect gift that God has blessed me with and His timing… perfect. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says

He has made everything beautiful in its time…

I am thankful for God’s Word because it truly is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path (Psalm 119:105). Here are a few more verses that have become our “foundation materials” for our marriage. May you allow these verses to build, nourish and protect your marriage/relationships too ❤

Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Psalm 127:1

Marriage Like Christ and the Church Ephesians 5:19-33

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

33. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
