I am a helpless
and I long for a special man
for every woman
a prince for every princess
who longs for a prince
But even more than this
I long for you, single women,
to know your groom Jesus first
I long for you to want Him
more than any man
I long for you to know Him
and love Him first
before you find your Mr. Wonderful
I long for you to be so grounded in Truth
and the Truth-Speaker, Jesus,
that no human man
could take His place
No groom will match
the One who chose you first
And no romance will compare
to the one you can have with Him
If you can only see it
and hear it
and feel it
If only you can KNOW it
That is what I long for
What a gift our Groom is
to the whole body of Christ
He gave everything
and He is unswervingly faithful
This is love,
– Susie Stewart
This is the embodiment of true love: not that we have loved God first, but that He loved us and sent His unique Son on a special mission to become an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
– 1 John 4:10 (VOICE)
I made you. I am now your husband. My name is the Lord Who Rules Over All. I am the Holy One of Israel. I have set you free. I am the God of the whole earth.
– Isaiah 54:5 (NIRV)
And then I’ll marry you for good—forever! I’ll marry you true and proper, in love and tenderness. Yes, I’ll marry you and neither leave you nor let you go. You’ll know me, God, for who I really am.
– Hosea 2:19,20 (MSG)
Now is the time for joy and happiness.
He deserves all the glory we can give Him.
For the wedding feast has begun; the marriage of the Lamb to His bride has commenced,
and His bride has prepared herself for this glorious day.
She had been given the finest linens to wear,
linens bright and pure,
woven from the righteous deeds of the saints.
– Revelation 19:7,8 (VOICE)
You’ll get a brand-new name
straight from the mouth of God.
You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand,
a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected,
and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight),
and your land Beulah (Married),
Because God delights in you
and your land will be like a wedding celebration.
For as a young man marries his virgin bride,
so your Builder marries you,
And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride,
so your God is happy with you.
– Isaiah 62:3-5 (MSG)
