As I laid in bed trying to fall asleep last night, I got to thinking about all of the incredible people the Lord has brought into my life. I’m sure anyone who reads this can find at least one person that makes your life happier, can always put a smile on your face, or would drop everything to help you in a time of need. Does that one person really know how much you appreciate their friendship? Have you told them lately what a blessing they’ve been to you? If not, let’s change that!
My challenge to you this week is to take time to write someone a letter. Yes, that’s right, I said write… meaning pen and paper. Even if you don’t have their address, find a time that you could hand it to them. Whether it be your Mom, Dad, a former teacher, a pastor, you get the picture! Letter writing is becoming a lost art, and sometimes it’s a hand written letter that can mean the most to someone and we don’t even realize it. For someone to know that you were thinking about them and took the time out of your schedule to hand write them a thank you note, a simple note just to say hi, or a letter to let them know how they’ve impacted your life in a positive way, I’d imagine it’s a pretty good feeling! So this week, take a look at all of the wonderful people in your life and pick at least one to reach out to. I wrote a letter this morning and got it in the mail right away! I plan on writing a few more throughout the week as well! Let’s all take time to let our friends and loved ones know how much we appreciate their presence in our lives. If you think about someone while you’re busy and can’t take the time to write a letter, give them a call. Text messages are great for when you can’t be on the phone, but they’re so impersonal! Go the extra mile to reach out to someone meaningful in your life! Who’s on your heart this week?
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. 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. 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.
Your Future Wife
