I am currently in that stage of life where many of my friends are settling down and getting married. This means a lot of engagement parties, bridal showers, wedding shenanigans, becoming poorer but all in good fun. Just this past weekend, I got to witness the marriage of two good friends. I met them only a year ago, but this couple truly shines because of how much they care and serve others. In fact, I value both friendships dearly and respect them as older and wiser siblings in Christ.

I was quite honored to be a part of their special moment and, up to that point, had been counting down the days until the wedding for months. While I looked forward to the public exchanging of rings and declaration of vows, I think what I appreciated most was that that the wedding was centered on Christ. My favorite part in the entire ceremony was when everyone in attendance worshiped God with their voices as we sang a couple songs.

One song we sang, “Before the Throne of God Above,” is one of my favorite modern hymns, and I remember closing my eyes and just basking in the joy of praising God together. It was also a great reminder that we were all attending this wedding because of God — it was Christ that brought these two individuals together and Christ who will sustain their marriage until death do them part. In my opinion, each walk down the altar is a miracle and a testament of God’s provision and grace.
