Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
(Psalms 139:23-24 NIV)
Imagine the amount of preparation that goes into a wedding.
I had a tiny glimpse into the process several months ago as my brother and now sister-in-law planned for their wedding day in February. There were hours, days, weeks, and months of preparation. Selecting the right date, finalizing the guests list, figuring out the venue, finding the right dress, the right tux, the photographer, the food, the bridesmaids, the groomsmen — the seemingly endless list goes on.
But this entire season of planning, preparation, refining, and getting even the smallest details right were all for one special long-awaited day.
Doesn’t that sound familiar?
