The Story of Us: His Vows


My sweetest Tristan, You’re my best friend, lover, partner and companion.
I love you. I love who you are and who you will become.
You are wonderfully, and beautifully made. You are kind, intelligent, and so generous.
You are the most beautiful example of Christ that I have ever seen displayed.
You are a willing, joyful servant. I am filled to my utter brim of favor, and enjoyment as I stand with you right here and now, taking this oath before our heavenly father.
To say you are the woman of my dreams would be an understatement.
I have traveled all over the world and have yet to see anything that surpasses your beauty.
Today, we choose to follow God’s predestined plan another step further, by the celebration of two becoming one flesh.
I choose you today, to walk hand-in-hand through life with, forever more.
In God’s sovereignty he knew my weaknesses, and yours.
And he carefully crafted our creation, and perfected it for our strengths and weaknesses to ensure that we truly are meant to be.
I promise to love you deeply whether for better or for worse, in sickness or in health, in riches or in poverty. I am so excited to start and lead a family with you, a family that will honor and fearfully serve the Lord and love our neighbors.
I promise to cheerfully honor God’s commands in sacrificing myself for you, and loving you as He loves the church.
I would give my life for you, I loved you yesterday, today and tomorrow.
I promise to grow with who you are today, and who the Holy Spirit shapes you into tomorrow.
I promise to sanctify you, and cleanse you by washing you with God’s Inspired Word and present you holy and blameless without blemish before Him everyday.
I promise to put your needs before mine.
I promise to fight for you and never against you.
I promise to respect you, and live by the fruit of the Spirit.
I promise to treasure you, and only you with my faithful loyalty.
I promise to never try and earn the attention of another, or formulate ideas about an other.
I promise to guide my heart, eyes and mind with turning from sin.
I promise to lead you to the cross, to open God’s Word in our home, and to lead you in prayer.
I vow today, in front of our Heavenly Father, closest friends and family to always love you.
“This life, this love, was always meant to be A wild, crazy adventure discovering, The thrill, the rush, the more of You I see , The more it leaves me wanting, You’re everything.”
