He held the crumpled piece of paper in his hands, trembling as he read it to her. Fighting back tears, he cleared the lump in his throat — a byproduct of emotions built up over the waiting season leading up to their wedding. Tucked away from friends and family before the wedding ceremony commenced, he exposed the deepest parts of his soul — vulnerably and gracefully handing the key to his heart, to her.
See, his heart had been broken before, but standing beside him – was redemption. A real-life example of God’s restoration power at work.
The sound of his voice immediately calmed her nerves. She was safe. She was finally home.
The tension in the air was thick, yet fluid. I’d felt this before. It wasn’t uncomfortable, it was anointed. It was Holy Spirit.
We were standing on Holy Ground.
Though a barn wall stood between them in this moment, their hearts were adjoined. Nothing could separate them.
With each passing sentence, we slowed our movement, exhaling and soaking in the peace only Jesus could bring to a moment so powerful. We bowed down to the One who brought them together – standing in complete reverence to the King of Kings.
A prayer his mother spoke over him in the womb had come to fruition today. Heaven and earth had aligned; a true testament to the importance of steadfastness, obedience, and faithfulness in the Christian walk. This wasn’t just any marriage, it was a marriage built on the foundation of God – the way marriage was always intended to be.
Lenzie & Nathan’s Texarkana wedding took place in the backyard of her parent’s home in Queen City, Texas – a quiet and intimate countryside estate. With their friends and family surrounding them, they promised to love each other, and put each other first on this beautiful journey they were about to embark on.
I now present to you, Mr. & Mrs. Nathan Cobb…
