Although it’s been a long road of waiting, God has walked with me through the steps of lonely seasons, heartbreaks, loss, frustration and so much more to prepare me to become a wife worthy of your love. Looking back, every single one of those steps that brought us here were so beyond worth it. And I know without a doubt that you are worth it and I’d do it all over again if I had to.
So as I walk down that aisle toward you today, I want you to know that I believe that walk is so much more than a ceremonial motion or formality. Each step represents the steps that God has walked with me through to bring me to this moment as I take this big step in becoming your wife.
Today we give Him everything. Today, we give each other everything.
I can’t express to you how overwhelmed I am by the faithfulness and goodness of God in His blessing of me with you as my husband and I joyfully give you my hand, my heart and my life from now until the end of time.
Your Forever Bride
So that’s my letter. My heart, mushy and sappy in all its forms, poured out onto a page that seemed to close so many years of heartbreaks and mistakes and doubt and lonely. So if you take nothing else away from this, take this: Just like I wrote letters to my future husband, the good Lord has written you the sweetest love letter of all time. And you know what it says?
It says that your heartbreaks and your mistakes don’t define you, your marriage or your purity. Jesus does.
