Waiting for my ValentineĀ 

To my Valentine,

I know you’re out there somewhere, and I like to think that you’re closer than I realize. Everyday I pray that you’re preparing your heart for me, as I am for you. The Lord is using this season of singleness to build us up and strengthen us in Him, so that as we do life together, we’re constantly encouraging each other and drawing the other closer to Him. I want you to love God more than you love me. I pray that we both learn from His love, and can find new ways to love each other through Him.

I’m giddy with excitement for the journeys He’s going to send us on, the people we’ll meet, and I can’t wait to see how He uses us for His Kingdom. When I find it hard to be patient, I just thunk about those things, and it makes the wait easier. I pray that we’re a power couple, on fire for Christ, being a blessing to those around us. I’m positive that doing life with you will be so beyond worth the wait, and I hope that you feel the same way.

They say that good things come to those who wait. Well, I’m here to tell you that I will wait for as long as it takes for God to decide when the timing is right. Waiting and praying and preparing my heart for you.

If you’re reading this, Happy Valentine’s Day, love.

Forever Yours,

Mandi

  Hello love! 

  It’s been a long while since I wrote last, and you’ve been on my heart more now than ever! You’ve been into prayers constantly. I feel like you’re closer than you’ve ever been, and it’s honestly making me crazy to not be with you. I want to know who you are, I want to have you by my side. I want to overwhelm you with my love, to start doing life with you, to love Jesus together. 

  My heart is so ready for you! I sure do hope the Lord thinks that we’re ready for each other soon, too. I hope you’re praying for me as well. Believe me, my anxious heart needs it! Ha! I can’t wait to see what our future holds, but I know that it will be worth the wait! So, hang in there with me, and sooner or later we’ll be together for good. I already love you with all of my heart, dear! 

All of my love,

  Your Future Lovely šŸ˜˜

Hello lovely,

It’s me again, your future wife. I just wanted you to know that I’m praying for you like crazy. My heart aches to meet you like it never has before. I hope this means that the time is getting closer. I seriously can’t stop thinking about you, who you might be, the precious time we’ll spend together, the laughs we’ll have and the love we’ll share. I know they’ll be some tears too, because nothing is perfect, but we’ll always communicate and work things out.

I can’t wait to start our day with devotions and prayer, and of course some coffee too! I’m definitely looking forward to where the Lord is going to lead us and the adventures He’ll send us on along the way. I know that, because we have God at the center, our marriage will be rock solid and filled with love. I pray that you too, are using your season of singleness to pray and prepare your heart for me. I’m bursting with excitement to see what the future holds! Until the moment that the Lord finally decides it’s time for us to meet, I’ll continue praying for you, preparing my heart, and drawing closer to Him.

Until next time, lots of love!

Your Future Love ā¤

Hello love,

You’ve been on my heart a lot lately, I’d like to think that the Lord has given a glimpse of you since the last time I wrote to you. only time will tell. As I prayerfully wait to meet you, I’d like you to know that I’m using my season of singleness to pull closer to the Lord and prepare myself to spend the rest of my life with you. My heart anxiously awaits the day that I get to walk down the aisle to meet you and say “I do.” I’m so excited for the adventures we’ll embark on together. I can’t wait to teach our children to love and honor God just as we have and will continue to do so. My heart aches for a Godly man to be by my side, love me through the tough stuff, help me to draw closer to God, and Praise Him with me through the blessings and the highs of life.

I know we won’t have a perfect marriage, who does? We’re only human. But I also know that with God in the center of it, we can make it though anything together, through prayer and trusting in Him. I will always be willing to fight for our love, I want the man I marry to be my first and my last kiss, and for him to get every kiss in between. I pray that you’re praying for me as I am for you. I love you with all of my heart right this second and I haven’t even officially met you yet, so you know when we’re finally brought together, I will love you just as much, if not more!

Until next time…

Signed with prayers and love,

Patiently Waiting

When Waiting is Hard

Godly ManĀ  Sometimes waiting is hard, really hard. Now, more than ever, my heart longs for a Godly man to love me, stand by my side, and draw me closer to God. A man to be silly with, to cry on his shoulder, and pray with. I know that God has the perfect man set aside for me, and I’ve put my trust in Him and know that when the time is right, I’ll know exactly who that man is. There’s even a chance he’s already a part of my life and I just don’t know it yet.

When I look around at all of the wonderful examples of Godly marriages that are still overflowing with love, even years later, it encourages my heart and inspires me to suck it up and wait it out. The Lord won’t just leave me hanging and heart broken, I can feel Him preparing my heart for marriage. Whispering to me what to look for in a man and telling me not to settle just to have my Facebook profile say “In a Relationship.” No, there will not be any settling here.

I will wait for as long as it takes for the Lord to send me a man that I’ll spend the rest of my life with. I don’t want a man to love for 15, maybe 20 years. No. I want to spend the REST OF MY LIFE with the man I marry. I know we’ll disagree and our marriage won’t be anywhere near perfect, but I want a man who will always fight for me, even after we’ve fought with each other. A man who loves God more than he loves me, one who’s always willing to pray after we’ve had an argumentĀ then kiss and make up. A man who will say “I love you” until it’s nearly worn out, and who will be the Godly head of our household. I want our children to see our marriage and love for Jesus and say “I want that when I grow up.”

I know, it may seem like a lot to ask for, but don’t forget Who’s in charge here! I pray for my future husband and marriage every night. I can only hope and pray that the day it becomes a reality, those who have been watching my life, and maybe even doubting, will see that it IS worth the wait and when you put your trust in God He WILL give you the desires of your heart. Don’t lose hope, your time is coming, just keep trusting and be patient.

 

From Me, with Love

Dear Future Husband,

I’m writing to tell you that I pray about you every night, asking God to put you into my life when the timing is right. Ā Some days it’s really hard to wait for you as all of my friends are hanging out with significant others and so adorably in love with each other. I know you’re out there somewhere, when I find you I pray that you’ll be my first love and my last. I pray that you’ll love Jesus more than you love me, pray for me on my rough days, laugh with me as much as possible, and support me in whatever I do. I promise to do the same for you. I’ll always be there to support you, be loving, forgiving, and understanding. I pray that we will bring each other closer to God through our relationship with Him and with one another.

You should know that I’m a little crazy. I dance around the kitchen, make funny faces just because, and sing along to my favorite songs terribly. I think kisses on the forehead are the cutest thing, and watching movies snuggled on the couch means just as much to me as a fancy dinner out. My family means the world to me and then some, so moving away from them would only be possible if it was the Lord’s plan for us. Even then it would be incredibly difficult.

As for our wedding, I ask that we pray over our future before I walk down the aisle to meet you… no peaking of course! It would mean the world to me to get married in my home church and to have my pastor marry us. Ā I’ve saved myself for you completely, I pray that you have done the same for me. Every other girl dreams about a Prince Charming, I just want a man of God who will lift me up to the Father, be there to catch me when I fall, and agree to raise our children in a God fearing household no matter what this fallen world tries to throw at them. I know we’ll have ups and downs, but with God in the center of our marriage, we WILL make it through. I haven’t even met you yet and I already love you with all of my heart. I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together glorifying the name of Jesus and loving on His people.

With Love,

Your Future Wife
