The Wedding Day

This is the story of the Son of God

Hanging on a cross for me

But it ends with a Bride and a Groom 

and a wedding by a glassy sea

O death, where is your sting? 

Cause I’ll be there singing 

Holy, holy, holy is Your name.


This is the story of a bride in white

waiting on her wedding day

Anticipation welling up inside 

while her Groom is crowned a King

O death, where is your sting?

Cause we’ll be there singing 

Holy, holy, holy is Your name.

“And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.” // ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:6-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

This is all I am living, breathing & preparing for. Every sacrifice, every longing twist of the heart and every single bit of waiting will be worth it on that glorious day. All things will be made new then – every tear wiped away and every sorrow turned to joy as we behold the face of the One we have faithfully loved this whole time. How our hearts will swell.. How all of heaven and earth will burst forth together in one resounding chorus of praise and singing. Marriage here on earth is beautiful, but it is only a reflection of all there is to come.

He is worth the wait. Until then, let our lives echo with the voice a longing bride who is making herself ready.

You Will Have Your Bride

We must understand that He wants us so much more than we will ever want Him. What we feel for Him is a mere flicker of a flame compared to how His heart burns for us. His zeal for us is far more consuming than ours will ever be for Him, yes, even during the heights of passion when we are declaring our vows with tears streaming down our faces.

Know that His faithfulness towards us is far greater than our faithfulness towards Him. Our grip is feeble, but His is not. We are so weak, but He is strong, and He is able to keep us.

All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. (John 6:37, 39 NKJV)

He wants us. He has been waiting for His Bride since eternity’s past, and He WILL have what He has set out to possess. The fiery promise He has made to us is that He will be faithful to complete the good work He started.

If we will not harden our hearts towards Him, He will keep us to the end. In that day we will stand before Him, and it will be the gladness of His heart. That glorious day is everything He has desired for with an all consuming jealousy, everything all of heaven has been holding its breath for, and everything the entire creation has been groaning for.

Jesus will have His Bride.
