Dear Hubby

To my future husband,

Despite all I have encountered with previous relationships and contact with men in general, even now I am still going to hold out for you. You are going to be worth it. I have decided to stop looking for you and to just focus on God. He will bring me to you in the right time. Furthermore, it is not my job to be looking or chasing. “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD” (Proverbs 18:22, King James Version). The New Living Translation replaces a good thing with treasure. I like both translations but either way you are already favored but wait until you find me. Imagine how many doors will be opened for you b/c of me. You better hurry up, lol. I know God has saved you for me, just like He is faithfully saving me for you.

I love you and I am doing my best. My heart is already yours. I am going to stop searching elsewhere b/c I know you are going to be so much better than what I have planned. While I am waiting, God is always looking after me so need to worry (of course I’m in good hands).

You are always in my thoughts and prayers and please continue to cover me in prayer. God is preparing our hearts, our finances, our dreams, our organization skills, and our physical bodies for each other. By faith, we know that God has perfect timing and even though we are distant right now, at the appointed time we will be together.

When you start pursuing me, I will start responding to you. I pray God gives you his patience, wisdom, perseverance, peace, and strength everyday. It is always my prayer that we work together as a team in furthering God’s kingdom.

I hope that we see the potential in each other and work constantly on bringing that potential out. We are each other’s motivation. I hope that we push each other in the areas where we are strong and encourage each other where we struggle.

May our love always be based off the never-ending love of our God and not based on temporary things. I hope that we constantly work toward knowing and fulfilling the fullness of the Gospel.

No matter what, I promise to always support you and your vision. Again, I can’t stress enough how I pray for you daily, sometimes even multiple times. I pray for you, your family, your job, etc. And then I cover us collectively and our future together.

I thank God that He is taking this time to work on us. I know that He is releasing in you past hurts and pains, disappointments and shame, and He’s doing the same in me.

I pray that God will equip us to be all that we need to be so we can have this AWESOME marriage and be what the World needs to see. Yes, we will have problems and face trials and tribulations but babe together with God we can conquer any enemy. The word says in Romans 8:31 (New International Version), “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, WHO can be against us?”

This journey is not always easy and I’m sure sometimes you feel like me and want to quit. But I’m also encouraged when I read and hear testimonies of God-sent love. I instantly regain hope and remember that God is no respecter of persons and if He did it for them then He CAN and WILL definitely do it for me (us).

There’s so much to tell you and I can’t wait to hear all about your journey. May you continue to make a stand and be unashamed bold with your faith.

P.S. I can’t wait to show off that beautiful diamond rock on my finger so get your funds together now (LOL).

I can’t help but always wonder if we already know each other. None the less whether we do or don’t, I can’t wait (not being anxious) until we meet at that aisle and say “I do”. Our wedding will be grand and beautiful Keep holding out and stay strong. Our time is very close. You’re always in my thoughts and prayers.

Love,

Your Future Wife (Mrs.__)

Single & Happy

It’s interesting to come across things you’ve written awhile back but have forgotten. Often times, when people ask are you dating and you say no, they act like that’s a problem. It could be for various reasons that you have chosen not to be involved with someone. Whatever the reason may be, never allow your status to define you. Being single, married, divorced, or widowed are all relationship status titles but they do not define who you are as an individual. Never forget that. So although this post/poem is dedicated to all my single sisters, be content and happy (although not always easy) in your status. You are not cursed but simply in preparation season and it will all be worth it if you don’t settle and wait for the best.

What makes you think that just because I am an attractive woman of Godly intelligence and confidence that I’m incomplete without a mate?

Who told you that

Without a man

Something’s missing from my life?

And if so,

What would that be?

Love?

I love myself and more importantly I love the Lord. He told me that when I delight in Him, He will give me the desires of my heart.

Security?

I have everything I need according to His riches in glory.

Intimacy?

Now, how’s a man going to get to know me when he doesn’t even know he is in the Lord. See my Father told me I’m above a ruby’s worth and a gem does not seek it is sought.

I’m single and that’s alright with me

See, it’s not that I oppose relationships. It’s that I detest co-dependency. As a woman, I know it’s not my role to chase after ANY man.

Esther 2:14 reads that I am to wait on my king and when he’s delighted in me, he will call me by my name.

My Lord does not intend for me to be needy or desperate. I am to be cherished, relished, valued, and honored. It’s not my job to convince or convict him of that. My mate will already know it and consistently show it. He will stay on his knees daily not just to adore me But to praise the Lord for the virtuous woman he has found.

So, when you see me by myself. I’m not alone. I know what I have coming to me. I’m single and saved, and right now that’s all I need to be.
