Write a letter to your future mate saying whatever you want to say
Let me start off by saying–I MADE IT!! This is the last day of the Single Woman’s blogging challenge and it feels likes it has taken me forever to finish it….oh wait–
It has been a year and a day since I started this challenge and so much has changed since then. I am in such a better place emotionally than I was when it first began. No, I am not in a relationship but I started reading books and doing the work on myself that I hadn’t thought to do beforehand. I wanted to rush the process but I believe I am ending right on time. This challenge was actually the easiest since I have been writing letters to my future husband off and on for years now. I write when I start to lose hope or when I feel like letting him in on things that are happening now that will affect our life together. I don’t know when I will be able to give this journal to him but writing to him gives me a peace that everything will work out in perfect timing.
Dear Future Husband,
I waited for you. Not always patiently but I waited. Truthfully my hope hasn’t always been high that you would come after all of this time but God reminded me that He is faithful and you have always been a desire of my heart. You are the culmination of prayers whispered in the night and tears shed over broken hearts. I want you to know I am praying for you now. You aren’t a figment of my imagination but a true and living person who goes through things I know nothing about but I want to start covering you now. I pray for your mind, your heart, your hands, your steps, your purpose, and His glory.
I pray for you first and foremost as your sister in faith. I don’t want to get caught up in the possibilities of a future with you that I forget you as a person. I then pray for you as my friend. As someone who cheers you on from the sidelines as you battle against everything in the world that tries to tear you down. I want the best for you even now. Then I pray for you as a future wife. I pray for your relationships with your family and friends. That you are honoring the women in your life now as well as honoring the men who walk next to you. If you are in a relationship right now I pray for your girlfriend, that you guys are building each other up! I pray that when the relationship ends (soon please, I am still waiting LOL) you aren’t left with emotional baggage to deal with and that you don’t let what happened color your view of our future.
I have realized that these letters are part of my vows. Written moments of re-dedication to the process God has me in that leads to you. I don’t want to rush. I don’t want anything to happen before it is supposed to. I am thankful to be just here, in the moments of anticipation before, when everything is still ahead of us. I can’t wait for our love story to unfold. I know it will have its highs and lows but we will make it to the altar on our holy wedding day.
