Trusting in The Lord’s Timing | Pre-Engagement Stress

 

 

 

If you already have your wedding planned out but don’t even have a pretty little bling on your finger, trust me… you’re not alone.

Welcome to my world.

Yup! I fit right into that category and honestly… I’m perfectly okay with that.

Now don’t get me wrong, there is complete anxiousness of when my special someone will get down on one knee because you just KNOW it is happening soon! You just don’t know WHEN!!! AHHHH!

*cue the butterflies*

But I wanted to give a few tips for those girls who are sailing in the same boat I’m in.

Tips on how not to stress because he hasn’t popped the question yet, and how to enjoy the last moments

as “boyfriend and girlfriend”.

 

Pray

Constantly be praying over your significant other.

Pray for their heart, their mind, their dreams, and that they are praying over you just as much.

Pray that The Lord will guide them in their decisions and that they are trusting His timing and not their own.

Prayer is a powerful thing, friends.

 

Enjoy These Moments 

You’re more than likely not going to be “boyfriend and girlfriend” for much longer. Soon enough, you will have that ring on your finger and then shortly after, you’ll have a different last name.

Enjoy the little moments and soak in every minute that you possibly can. It won’t last forever.

You might be getting asked “when’s the wedding?” over and over again… but don’t allow that to put more pressure on y’all as a couple.

At the end of the day, it is about your love for one another, not about proving it to the rest of the world through an engagement.

Focus on the season that you’re in now and grow together daily.

 

Trust

When this special moment does happen, it’ll be exactly when it was supposed to happen.

The Lord’s timing is so perfect.

I’ll admit that I am a control freak. I like to know when things are happening and how they are happening.

It’s been a challenge for me to not know the ‘what’s, if’s, when’s, how’s,’ but it has been such a redeeming feeling knowing that my person is trusting The Lord throughout this season.

 

 

I am focusing on the season that we are in, and I encourage you to do the same.

Don’t put pressure on what’s to come. Find joy in where you are at now.

But once that time does come, we will be here to congratulate you every step of the way.

You know where to find us.
