One of the happiest day in the life of a woman is her wedding day. In fact, by the time most women become teenagers, they have already started planning for their dream wedding.
As happy as couples are on that day, gospel singer, Sola Allyson also thinks they should be spiritually alert for the ‘work’ ahead of them.
She speaks on why couples should take their wedding day serious.
I met this couple recently at an event. They walked up to me to take pictures and reminded me that I performed at their wedding. I was happy!
You know why? Because they’re still together. And happy together! I was happy, gratefully so, because I was a part of sealing their marital journey! Theirs and many others I’ve been privileged to be part of, as a Singer.
You see, your wedding day is a significant day in your life. Marriage is a journey, and the wedding day is the beginning, not just in the glamour and fanfare, which are not bad o, but in the sealing of two destinies coming together! SOMETIMES it is war. Against status quos. Against foundations. Sometimes, I say. Therefore, it must be with all seriousness!
The way weddings are gone about these days show that we see marriage as joke, and we are not prepared. That day should be a day of rejoicing no doubt, but premised on all seriousness and SPIRITUAL ALERTNESS! What kind of music do you dance to on your wedding day? That your choreography?
Do you realise the seriousness of the journey you’re starting? I would think that day, the beginning of the journey unknown, is when you should be filled with gratitude to GOD no doubt, but also PRAYER for Grace to walk the journey, UNKNOWN! Ojà òkùnkùn – a transaction done in darkness.
I have performed at many weddings and even as a singer, on contract o, not family, as I sing and we dance, I pray, for help for the couple in their walk. And you, couple, who own the matter gangan, will now not realise it’s serious??? See, marriage is sweet, but it’s work. Work which must start on your wedding day, by yourself, committing the journey unto Grace, with all seriousness.
I was amazed at a BIG wedding I performed at where the couple requested I sing the worship medley MIMO for their coming in, and they both knelt down to pray-sing with the song! I emphasised “BIG” because it wasnt like they managed to do the wedding. And I saw a wedding recently where Bro Nathaniel Bassey did one of his songs and was prophesying as the couple danced! That’s it!
I’m always joyful when I see/hear about marriages of the weddings I perform at doing well. Purpose being fulfilled! Honor.
