Dear Future Husband,
I don’t really know where to begin, but I will start by awkwardly saying: Hi, I am Alicia.
I am not really the sentimental type, or maybe I am but perhaps I have never met the person who naturally draws it out of me, but I pray God gives me the words to say as I open myself up here…
I pray for you.
I already care for your soul. I already pray that God keeps you. That His love permeates every ounce of your being. That His goodness constantly seeps out of your pours and is evident in your life. That your soul is already secured in the Kingdom of God and that Satan is without jurisdiction in your life.
I pray for your protection. Not just physical, but mental and spiritual too. I know the world can be a cruel place and it is where you must be your toughest, but I pray that in me you find peace – because the peace that surpasses all understanding that comes from Jesus resides within me.
I pray for your heart. Maybe, like me, you’ve been through heartbreak before. Maybe, like me, you have had betrayal disturb the way you see love. Maybe, like me, you have seen the worst side of humanity. So I pray that God is making whole your heart. That He is revealing to you His love and that when we meet you’ll be ready to receive my love.
Even now I pray that we both remain focused on the Lord. That we both love God more than anything – even each other. That even now we be wise in those we allow close to us who come as counterfeits or stumbling blocks to our growth. That we may have Godly wisdom, discernment, and understanding in all things. I pray for you in the spiritual battles you face even now. If it’s lust, may God uproot the desires. If it’s pride, may God gracefully break you into humility. If it’s persecution, may God strengthen you through it’s endurance.
I pray to be a Proverbs 31 woman and that you be an Ephesians 5 man so that we may be an example of 1 Corinthians 13 love. May we strive for holiness. May we deny ourselves, pick up crosses, and follow Jesus daily. May we be fruitful members of the body. May we glorify God with our union. I am already a strong woman of God because of the work of Christ in my life, but even now I await your Godly leadership. To be embraced in your warm arms, to laugh at our inside jokes, to enjoy a homemade dinner together under the moonlight, to uphold one another through life’s trials and tribulations, to have our first silly argument and lay beside each other later that evening and apologize … I could go on, but there’s like a lot of people reading this lol
I don’t know you (or maybe I unknowingly do), but I already love you. You want to know how I will identify you? Because God told me that you will be the first man in my life to see me for me and love me as Christ does. To choose me first when you could have chosen from many others. To make me feel as if I am your one and only – because I will be.
May God’s perfect will be done in both of our lives.
Until we meet and with my sincerest love,
Your Future Wife ❤
