We're Getting Married...

Sedrick and I started out as friends, years ago before losing contact with each other in 2019. A couple years later, as God was shutting every old door in my life, He brought Sedrick back into my life. We picked up where we left off and continued our friendship. 

I will never forget the night we sat up talking for hours on the phone, when he told me with shock in his voice that I was going to be his wife. I refused to come into agreement with it because I know the power of agreement and the power of our words. It was in that moment, Holy Spirit whispered in my ear "Don't be so quick to speak" and I literally felt my heart melt. I quietly told God He was going to have to prove this one to me. 

In the weeks and months that followed, I sought God diligently. I needed Him to show me this and to confirm it to me. My God is faithful and as I requested, He confirmed it to me time and time again. But every time, the enemy would sneak in my head and steal the confirmations from me, replacing them with doubt. 

Finally, one morning on my way to church the Lord gave me a vision. I seen three pair of shoes, standing in the grass. One belonged to me, one to Sedrick, and the other to our pastor. It was a wedding and I heard the Lord say "You will be married before me". 

At the time Sedrick was still incarcerated and our journey to prove his innocence hadn't even begun yet. He still had another two years before he came up for parole and another twenty-five years at least before he maxed out. Scenarios played out in my mind of how we would get married. Would we get married in prison? Would we file in Alabama where you could do it all through the mail? 

On July 31, 2022, Sedrick and I sat together at our little table in the visiting room in the midst of all the others visiting and between the two of us and God we said our vows to each other. We made promises to each other that came from our heart in the presence of God. For us, we knew that was enough for the time being. We knew God had brought us together and our relationship was ordained by the Lord. 

When Sedrick came home, I had high expectations. I expected us to get married immediately. How could we possibly live together in the same household and remain obedient to the Lord. Let me tell you, it was God. It was our love for each other and our love for Jesus that made being obedient not so hard. There were so many times I would get upset and not understand why Sedrick wasn't ready to marry me. I would feel some way when people would ask if he got me a ring yet and what was the hold up. 

I've never been locked up. I've never been hidden or kept away from the outside world. I've never been in Sedrick's shoes. God began to show me, this man was readjusting to life in this world. A lot had changed in the past twenty years. 

Isaiah 60:22 - "When the time is right, I the Lord will make it happen".

The time has come, and the Lord has made it happen. Sedrick and I are engaged to be legally married and we look forward to spending the rest of our lives together. I have stepped back and told the Lord "Your will, not mine". His plans are so much better. It has been an amazing journey and I look forward to sharing all the details of each step that the Lord has planned for our wedding. In the blogs to come I will share with you His plans and how He has revealed them to me.... from the wedding date, the venue, the favors, the bakery, and everything else He has in store! 

1 Corinthians 2:9 - "But as it is written, 'What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him'".
