One of my oldest and dearest friends got married yesterday. We’ve known each other about 32 out of our 40 years of life. That’s a long time! We’ve been through a lot together.
Yesterday, I missed seeing her fiance’ see her for the first time in her dress. They decided to take pictures before and do a first look shot. They did the sneak peak, then took several pictures together before the service.
Once the ceremony started, he, the groom, was already at the arbor with the Pastor. Three of us, “bridesmaids” were seated on the front row near him. When they opened the door and he saw his bride, he actually gasped and covered his mouth. He lost air. Seriously. It was so moving to me.
I knew he had already seen her. He knew he had already seen her. But she still took his breath away as she was coming down the walk way to marry him.
This is EXACTLY how God sees us!
Jeremiah 1: 5 says,“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
