Why Wait?

Posted on January 18, 2008. Filed under: personal, wedding blogs |

Today was one of those days that I ask myself, why am I waiting for marriage?  I was quite frustrated with my parents today.  They have a tendency to be very nit picky about how clean our house is.  If anything is lying around it gets moved or “put away,” which means I can’t find anything.  It gets me so frustrated and I just wish I was living with Jon already and I would have our own house with our own rules etc. etc.  But why am I not living with Jon? Because I have chosen to have a relationship with Jesus and follow his teachings.  It says that a man and woman will leave their father and mother and become joined to one another, and two are united into one.  Yeah this uniting doesn’t happen until the wedding day which isn’t for four months… You’d think the answer would be simple and I should just move out and live with my fiance.  I mean that’s what the rest of the world does right?  Yet somethings holding me back.  Some inward desire that trusts what the Bible says is true and that holding off till marriage is the right thing to do… That God has created a bond between the husband and wife that begins the wedding day and grows until death do us part.  Although I sometimes get so frustrated still living under my parents roof, I cling to the fact that God has a plan for me and that He loves to bless those who try and seek after him in obedience and faith. And besides it’s only four more months. Phew!

I know this is a really old post, but doesn’t waiting feel really good now, after the fact? My husband and I did the same thing and after being married just about 10 years we still are proud of the fact that we waited.
