A Wedding that Changed My Life
Wedding Story from ULC
Wedding Story from ULC
By Rev. Jane
I wanted to write and tell my story....I was Ordained a few years ago through ULC...because the Lord was leading me in that direction at the time.....I actually had 2 visions about it....I really don't tell people about these visions because I never acted on them....because I was just plain scared to death. The first vision was...that I saw looking up at myself preaching from the a pulpit....when I awoke ....I just laughed...and thought it was a crazy dream...because in college it took me 21 minutes to do a 8 minute speech...lol....I thought to myself yeah right God...I just KNOW your NOT picking me for that JOB!!!!...lol.....and I never gave it another thought. And the second vision broke me into tears with fear...because of public anything let alone speaking....and the vision was this: that I was standing in the pulpit...dress in robe and stole....SPEAKING AND PREACHING TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE....when I think of those visions I begin to stutter....lol...
That is just a little background on me...I wanted to tell you that my nephew found out that I am an Ordained Minister w/ULC and called and ask me to do his wedding because they really couldn't afford a big beautiful wedding and that he didn't wanted them to have to go to the courthouse to get married....so I agreed to do it....then....the fear set in once again...I spent hours on hours preparing for this ever so small wedding..about 25 people....and completely driving myself crazy....then....the morning of the wedding I had some quiet time in which I like to spend with the Lord and I heard something say............pop in the disc that goes along with your book...because I never actually thought anyone would ask me to do their wedding.......and I did...I watched the video on how to do the wedding.....and when I was done watching I felt a HUGE relief come over me......like I was carrying a million brick kinda feeling......I thought wow...its really not that hard....and I was so very honored when I got to the wedding....but still a bit nervous ....because I didn't wanna bumble my first service.....when it was time for the service EVERYBODY was nervous not just me....I did get a little hot under the Collar...lol..... no pun intended...lol.....but after we all settled in....everything when wonderful!!!!!!....
I just wanted to thank you...for your guidance in that wedding video.....because that wedding service changed my entire life....something really happened to me during that service.....especially when I put that robe and collar on...I felt a HOLINESS come over me and I had no questions what the Lord once again wanted me to do......during that service I learned so many things about myself and others.....when I arrived at my nephews house...there was some guys there...about 10 or 15.....and I didn't think much about it...because I was too busy being nervous...I kept going over my paperwork so many time just to make sure I had everything in order....and then I found out that my nephew was in a GANG and that these men I was too busy ignoring..but still smiling the whole time were MURDERERS and KILLERS.......all tattooed up and packing many guns...BUT...when I started with OPENING PRAYER...and asked......THAT ALL EYES BE CLOSED AND ALL HEADS BE BOWED.......Those murderers and killers that I was afraid of....ACTUALLY DID IT AMY!!!!!!! I really don't know how I kept myself together...ALL I can say is that it was such an Honor and a Privilege to do that service under your guidance!!!!
