The King’s Vow
Another vow to add to our wedding vows collection. I heard this vow last year when my friend King Reyes married his wife Nica.
Seven years ago, I made the most important decision of my life, to make Jesus Christ my Lord and my Savior. From then on I vowed to myself and to my God that I will wait on him and wait for His best choice for me.
Five years passed, and moving from place to place, waiting and praying, praying, praying, praying, and praying more. prayers have been sown for this moment and I have always imagined standing here in front God’s perfect choice for me.
Two years ago, we moved from Victory QC to Victory Pioneer, and I saw you. And the first thought that came to my mind is this girl is so pretty. And the other thought which is more important which came to me was, “Siguro nililigawan siya nung kasama niya”. I’ve always asked God for something that would tell that you or that girl I would marry is the perfect one. I asked Him to make it the perfect timing that (there’ll be) no hindrances, that the girl has no relationship: una walang boyfriend, hindi kasal, hindi engaged and hindi yung kakabreak lang kahapon. When I saw you, I have already been thinking that this was the one however I thought someone was courting you. I got to know you and met you, and the next important thing happened. I knew that that guy has a girlfriend and you were just a friend. And I thank that guy for bringing you to Victory Pioneer.
A year passed of going out and I knew I couldn’t move it anymore. I planned the perfect plan, proposed to you, because I knew it was God’s perfect timing. I have waited, I have sown prayers, and I knew it was really time. And I can’t believe we’re in front of our family and friends doing this. I know that by this wedding, by this covenant, I promise to take care of you. I promise to protect you. I promise to provide for you, to love you, to understand, to be your best friend, to always be there for you. I know its not going to be easy, but I know God sent us to each other to make it easier.
I love you so much.
Love, I promise this is not the best time we’ll have. But this is the start of best times we will have.
