Psalm 62:2 – He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall never be shaken.
I’m getting married today. A couple of years ago I was lonely and disappointed in the world, and I remember seeing this exact verse and feeling God’s love just pour into my heart and that’s the moment I realised that He alone is enough. No one and nothing but God can complete me.
Now that I have Bradley as my other half, I know that he compliments me but doesn’t complete me. He is my partner in life but not my Life. I thank God for the lessons He taught me in my brokenness because they have changed the way I think, talk and live.
I wrote down this verse in my journal on the 9th April 2014. This is the prayer I wrote alongside it…
Lord, I’m so tired of this world. I’m so tired of being left disappointed. Please work in me. Take my heart and breathe new life and hope into it. Give me joy Lord. Peace and joy. Help me to put all this stress, anxiety and restlessness in the grave. It doesn’t belong here, not when I have You. You’re all I need for the rest of my days.
You’re the only one who can save me Lord. I know you have great plans for me, a future that is so exciting – I just can’t wait. Help me to let go of the things in this world that are holding me down. Let me live for you and you always. Everyone else lets me down and leaves me feeling empty and broken. I want to live in You, with a purpose and a hope. I want to love like you, live like you and be like you. I want to inspire, encourage and heal. All for your glory.
I pray that God enters your life the way He entered mine, making you realise that He alone is all that you need. He is your rock, salvation and fortress. Because you have Him, you will never be shaken.
As I walk down the aisle today, I’ll praise God that He has blessed me the way that He has and most importantly, I’ll thank Him for being all that I’ll ever need. I’ll never be alone.
