Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #53

53. Resolved, to improve every opportunity, when I am in the best and happiest frame of mind, to cast and venture my soul on the Lord Jesus Christ, to trust and confide in him, and consecrate myself wholly to him; that from this I may have assurance of my safety, knowing that I confide in my Redeemer. July 8, 1723.

I'm getting married soon, and that thought brings me great excitement and joy at the moment. Yet, whether now, or after I get married, in every joyful moment God will give me, will I find greater happiness because of Christ and for Christ? Or will I shrink back down to earthly vision and cling only on to the gifts but not the Giver?
