passages of Scripture that we chose for our wedding each had personal meaning.
We either had memorized them together at one point or they described a certain
element in our journey together. We also strived to tie them into the message
themes of past, present, and future.
by Faith Jones
love the Lord, for He heard my voice; He heard my cry for mercy. Because He turned
His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live. The cords of death entangled
me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.
Then I called
on the name of the Lord: "O Lord, save me!" The Lord is gracious and
righteous; our God is full of compassion. The Lord protects the simplehearted;
when I was in great need, He saved me.
Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.
For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet
from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living."
by Dave and Heather Voss
remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember
them, and my soul is downcast within me.
this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love
we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.
say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him."
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is
good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord."
3:1-6 & Romans 15:13
by Dick and Glady Sander
son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commandments in your heart, for they
will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness
never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your
heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all
your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."
the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you
may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
