    Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!

    Revelations 19:9

     I thank God for giving me role models on how to do this Christian walk.  Two married couples showed me that you can use any event to praise God and be a witness to other people.  They demonstrated this through their weddings.

    One couple invited me to their wedding, and it was the first time I’d been to a wedding that started off with Praise & Worship.  Instead of people talking & schmoozing while they were waiting for the bride to walk down the aisle, they had a friend lead us in worship songs and share her testimony.

    The other couple was my aunt & uncle, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary several years ago by renewing their vows.  Even though it was a renewal, they used the event to talk about God’s goodness.  My main takeaway from the renewal was the two of them saying, “Hey, look at what God has done for us throughout these 50 years!  Look at how He’s kept us together for 50 years!”

    Witnessing the wedding & the renewal of vows was inspiring to me.  They encouraged my faith & gave me a greater feeling of happiness.  I’ve been to other weddings, and all of them were nice, happy events; but these two stuck out in my mind because they were overtly Christ-centered.  Somehow, praising God made me feel included, rather than a spectator.

    My word of wisdom for today is praise.  Now I know that I can use every event, great & small, to praise God.  I wish I knew that before.


    The purpose of If I Knew Then What I Know Now is to share some insights that I wish someone had told me about when I was younger.  There’s a fuller explanation on my first post, written on May 14, 2012.
