1 Thessalonians 5:24 God will make this happen, for He who calls you is faithful.
The countdown to wifehood is slowly ending, and I couldn't be more excited. I get asked how Curtis and I met and how we made this far, and my response is God made this happen. The intentionality behind our relationship from the beginning to now has been amazing to watch. I find myself in reflection mode and realizing the moments in my singleness when I would pray to God to get me ready for this moment.
"20-year-old Semline would be in tears of the loving, healed, faithful woman, almost 29-year-old Semline have become."
In one of my earlier blog posts, I shared that I am overcoming anxiety and that the anxiety stems from me wanting everything to be perfect and how much I plan for life. I worked hard to become whole and healed in my singleness, and I loved that version of me. I had a plan while I was single to accomplish goals, travel, spend more time with my girlfriends, brunch and do all those fun things. But, getting married has shifted that just a "lot" bit. The past couple of months have been me grieving that part of my life while simultaneously getting excited about my new life with Curtis. I know that my goals before I met him and the plans will be there; they will look a little different. Knowing that my priorities have and are constantly shifting, I note how far I've come as a woman in my 20s to get to where I am now in my engagement. 20-year-old Semline would be in tears of the loving, healed, the faithful woman almost 29-year-old Semline have become.
God has made this happen for me. In just a few weeks, I will say I do to the love of my life. To my twin sister, best friends, tribe, and family, I am looking forward to doing life with you all in this new, beautiful season of my wifehood journey. To my Fiance, I will see you at the alter.
My prayer for everyone is to remember what you are praying for and working towards; God will make it happen for He who calls you faithful.
