Matthew 24:36 “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” Even Jesus doesn’t know!

I’ll be totally honest… I was afraid when I was engaged that something would happen. The end of the world, or one of us would die, and I would die unmarried and a virgin when I was so close to getting married. It was completely ridiculous!

Of course, it could happen any time. However, there have been a lot of times throughout history that people must have been convinced that the end was near. I don’t think Obama’s re-election is any kind of sign.

I think Christians can take comfort in the fact that God is bigger than the president of the United States… Whoever that is! Live life normally, continue to be a productive member of society and don’t get discouraged. Don’t put life on hold, and don’t worry about tomorrow ( Matt 6:34).

Events in history are like dominos, one piece is set in motion, and the whole ” picture” unfolds. We don’t know where in that domino effect we are, and living in fear is a device of the enemy ( Satan). The recent election, the upheaval in the Middle East and events all over the world are happening for a reason. We don’t know, have to know or even have to understand WHY, we are just called to trust , with all of our hearts. It will be OK- God isn’t confined to party lines, voting habits or stances on a flat tax rate… He is so much more than that! Chin up and marry that man without fear of the ” what ifs”.

@Future_Mrs_Naugle:  ((HUGS))  It’s not ridiculous if you feel that way. 

I think because we’re so deeply happy, excited and looking forward to marrying the love of our lives that it brings forth natural fears of “what if something bad happens to prevent it?”  It’s not ridiculous to feel that way, that’s perfectly normal.

Wedding or no wedding – I would be more worried about whether or not your going to heaven at the rapture.

I would personally prefer the rapture over any event – nothing is better than being in heaven. 

EDIT:  I understand your worries – and I have thought about that too.  But God is in control, and when he says “it’s time” – it is time.  I dont think you’ll worry about it if the end actually happens before the wedding though.  No worries in heaven!

@Future_Mrs_Naugle:  Heh. I’m not going to say my personal feelings on this, because I’m just done with politics. But I will tell you what my pastor had to say. 

He said it didn’t really matter you voted for or who won from a religious standpoint. Neither Romney nor Obama was an acceptable option, neither could save America, and voting between the two was akin to David choosing between famine and plague in the Old Testament when his kingdom was judged. 

Now, I’m not certain what’s going to happen in the coming years, but put your fears in God’s hands. He will provide.

Don’t worry, as much as you may not have wanted Obama to win, I’m fairly certain it is not listed as one of the signs of the rapture 😉 But in all seriousness, this has been a pretty tumultuous time for our country, but I wouldn’t be too concerned about reports of food shortages here. That’s obviously a pretty frightening idea, but I doubt that any “shortage” would be noticeable on an individual level. Not in the way it is to people starving in Africa and other countries anyway. If you’re looking for more biblical words on the rapture to ease your mind, I found this to be a pretty interesting read!

@Future_Mrs_Naugle:  it’s true,  a lot could happen! However; can you change it? Can you do anything other than live the life you feel called to live? It is OK to have doubts, they’re perfectly normal to have! I would just hate for you to live in a state of fear, anxiety and worry over events you cannot change.

@Future_Mrs_Naugle:  I felt that way right up to the moment we exchanged vows, lol.  🙂  Even now I still feel a little like, “Did it really happen?  Am I really his wife?  Am I really this happy now?  Pinch me!” 

Everything will be fine for you, and you’ll have your heart’s desire.  Pray and trust God and be at peace. 

Blessings.
