Wherever You Are…

Dear Future Husband,

prayThere are so many things I want to say to you, but I just can’t seem to find the right words. I pray that I am everything you have prayed for in a wife when we finally cross paths. I pray that although the wait might seem long, I am a pleasant surprise in your journey of life.

Please forgive me for my past mistakes. I know I fall short and have many flaws, but I promise to always strive for a better me. I was foolish in the past, and I have come very close to giving parts of me that only belong to you to temporary guys. Please forgive me for all the unnecessary attention I entertained, because I had grown impatient in waiting for you. I admit, I have dated out of loneliness. I have allowed guys to pursue me that I knew wouldn’t even last a week, because being single got boring. And I can’t say that I won’t fall into that same trap in the future, but I am trying. I am trying to remain patient and keep my eyes on God. It’s just that being a single woman has its challenges some days. I only pray that you will understand.

Although it doesn’t seem tangible because of my past experience with dating, I know you are amazing. I know you will leave me speechless whenever our eyes connect. I know your intelligence and compassion for humanity will astound me. I know you will be physically attractive, but that won’t even compare to your true beauty-what lies inside of you. I should have lost hope that a man like you exist, but I haven’t. I know you are out there, and I know you are praying for me right now. I know you will love me the way God designed love to be, because I will be your Proverb’s 31st woman.

There are moments when I see visions of our future together. There are times when God lets me see glimpses to keep my feet steady on the right path. And I know to everyone else this sounds crazy, but you will understand me. You will fully understand why God is my everything, because He is your everything too. You will know why I get teary eyed just thinking about His love for me, because you too have had nothing else to lean on but God’s love.

My future husband, I love you. This pledge to abstinence is not just for me; it’s for us. It is for our children and the legacy we will build with one another. Though I sometimes give in to sin and fall short of what your wife should be, this is one way for me to express my commitment to you. So, please don’t feel discouraged because of your lack of a dating life or that a relationship fell through. Just as you are waiting for me, I am waiting for you.

Sincerely yours,

Your future wife
