But most importantly, amid all of the activities and deadlines, help me not to lose focus of the joy in heaven surrounding the mysterious joining together of two lives as it says in your Word, “For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). Enlarge my vision to see beyond the wedding day to the new lifetime before me. Let me remember that however beautiful the wedding might be, it is not the end in itself but instead an entry way into a new life partnership. Amen!

If you are feeling overwhelmed about your wedding, don’t fret. You are not alone. God is going to be with you from engagement through the wedding and through your marriage. It will be a beautiful ceremony that glorifies God and the love you share with your soon-to-be spouse.
