Be The Cinderella of Your Own Story

Want to know what I did this weekend? 

Heres a hint: it is probably the same thing you did. 

Watched the royal wedding? Yes girl!!

This could be the greatest love story of the week. No, the season. No, the year!! It is a love at first sight, find your Prince Charming” “happily ever after(all the cliches in one). All of us who dream of love are filled with hope in this story. 

Meghan Markle is OUR Cinderella. She is not some made up fairytale we heard of growing up. Shes real and her story is reMARKable lol

If you watched the wedding with the rest of the world, or at least browsed your insta feed, you would know that her veil was breathtaking, the guests were A-list and the ceremony was revolutionary. You would also know that the Gospel message was preached on a global platform. The world was encouraged by the power of love.

Although we do not know the details of her personal story, the symbol she represents is incredibly moving. There are a few things I think we can take away from her story, as it is still being written.

1. You can love again.

We dont know much about Markles first marriage except that it didnt last. The heartbreak she endured from that loss must have been beyond difficult to deal with. After going through a breakup, some of us think we will never be able to love again. Im sure she felt the same when it happened, but there is healing in time. And it is possible to find your true love. 

2. Trust God through it all.

We get a glimpse of the strength of Markles faith through the sermon preached Saturday. When you honor God, He honors you. This applies to every area of our lives. If we work hard and stay focused, we will be rewarded. Although she was an actress, Markle was never in gossip news or tabloids. She walked in purpose and avoided those distractions. And now her humility is being rewarded as she is the most famous bride in the world.

2. Don't underestimate the power of love.

This statement rang true as the preacher spoke. Love is a powerful force. It is the reason we all watched two people get married. Its the reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cant stop cheesing at each other. Whats funny about love is that once its established, it has a way of showing off. It wont contain its power to one couple, it cant help but to spread to the world. 

Love always wins!
