You might ask, “What about your relationship with God has to do with the pre-marriage stages of my life. What does God have to do with all this?” Everything! The more you enhance your relationship with Him, the more you can feel the love that He has for you. God will make the most beautiful moments in your courtship even more radiant. And He will transform the darkest moments into times hope and support. He will shine that light wherever you go and pick you up when you fall. As we all enter the preparation for marriage, there are always peaks and valleys. There is the great excitement of courtship, meeting the parents of the bride and/or groom, and planning the wedding day. Our childhood wounds, values, beliefs, and family-of-origin themes will all show up with intensity. If you have the Boss on your side, things will run much smoother. You trust the process; you know that something greater is at work. God gives you freedom, peace, and love.
