Weddings. The beautiful conjecture of two, man and woman, designed by God. The wedding itself is truly a symbol of two becoming one through God. I love the rings, the vows, the dress, and the fact that the girl has achieved my dream: getting married.
As a Christian girl, I think that marriage is something that automatically is built into our hearts. A desire for the relationship given to us by God. It’s enchanting to picture yourself as a bride, going through life with your other half. Not being single. Not looking like the loser girl who can’t get a date.
I don’t know about you, but every girl that I know fawns over wedding details. Bouquets, rings, and the dress itself. If you are like me, you probably have a pretty good idea of how you want your wedding to look. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to the day. My board has close to nine-hundred pins- YIKES!
A couple of weeks ago, I came across an article talking about the very thing: dedicating Pinterest boards to the lifestyle you hope to have, whether it be houses, cars, clothing, or weddings. The article went on to say that our generation is very virtual. We don’t necessarily buy anything online, but boy, do we like to virtually dream.
As harmless as this can seem it can often become quite the opposite.
When you plan your life out on Pinterest, not only do you show a lack of faith in God, impatiently shoving together how you want your life to be, but it also shows that you aren’t content.
We don’t know what we need.
If you can’t be happy when you are single, poorly dressed, driving in a worn-down car, or in a tiny house, how can you expect to be happy with a husband, designer duds, a Ferrari, or a mansion?
Be Content. Realize how much you have. Ask God to show you what you need.
“Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.” 1 Timothy 6:6
This week as you struggle with the worldly things that come your way, remember that “In Christ Alone” is your hope.
