I had my wedding roughly a year ago, when I was just 18. My now husband and I had known since we started dating, at 15, that we would get married as soon as we graduated high school. We kept the news to ourselves until our engagement at 17, because let's face it - people were going to think we were nuts. We were overjoyed knowing what our future held; however God blessed us with a plan, His plan. We counted down the months. Thirty months; I know—we were a little over zealous. We had rough plans about what the wedding would be like. As graduation neared, faster and faster, we prayed more and more that God would only let us get married if it were truly His will.
The days of counting down seemed to drag forever, but all of a sudden, it was our wedding day. It came so quickly. I could hardly sleep the night before. My stomach was in knots, and my mind was frazzled with excitement. The whole day seemed to go by in a blur, but it was the most amazing day of my life. I walked down the aisle to the man God had planned for me with happy tears streaming down my face. I could hardly recite my vows without choking on tears.
It was the craziest thing; one moment not being married, and then in an instant you are. It is like nothing changes, but everything changes at once. We left our ceremony completely in awe of God's love and His amazing blessing of marriage.
Now with a year of marriage under our belts, we are pursuing other plans that God has in store for us. We know marriage is certainly not for everyone during teenage years, but if you feel that God is leading you in that direction, do not be scared. Listen to Him. It has been amazing.
