Dear Future Husband,
I feel like most of my God-moments involving you happen in my car while stuck in traffic and yesterday was no different. I was rocking out to some catchy new songs I had just downloaded when I started thinking about you…
Now, before I begin, I must take a moment to park on a quote that I had recently heard that came to my mind as I thought about you: “Wait for a man who waited on the Lord to lead him straight to you.”
I recalled when I had read it that I felt the Lord reveal to me that this was one of the main reasons you’re not in my life… but it wasn’t just you who had this issue. It was me too. We’re both going about “finding the one” without seeking the Lord’s guidance. I know for me I’ve tried online dating here and there. I also have often walked into a room, hoping maybe the Lord would show me that one of the guys there was “my one.” Of course, none of those have worked out.
This quote processed in my mind though as I mindlessly maneuvered through traffic. As it did, I felt the Lord change something in me, like He gave the ok for a shift in my life to happen a shift in my focus. Not wanting to misunderstand, I asked God to speak to me more about it… to clarify what He meant.
It was then that I felt the Lord tell me that it was time for me to no longer just focus on my singleness and what God wants to teach me during this season (which is mainly trusting Him).
Instead, I was given the ok to focus on seeking Christ in order to find you. Although, it wouldn’t be just seeking Christ to find you. It would be more like really seeking Christ’s guidance in my life and He would make our paths cross.
I honestly was a little bit shocked as I spent time processing all of this. I’ve only ever known singleness and the thought of it being time for the Lord to start making a way for us to be together is terrifying. I mean, it’s exciting for sure, but also leaves me feeling petrified. It was becoming too real. I don’t feel ready at all… but then again, who is? Also, maybe that’s the reason I was having this encounter with the Lord – He know I needed it.
I continued praying about all of this as traffic began to pick up and as I did so, a verse popped into my mind and I knew as I recalled it, that all that I had been feeling was true.
“But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right – the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.”
I need to seek Christ and He will bring about what is meant for me, you included.
Dear future husband, I can’t wait to know who you are.
In the meantime, though, I will intentionally pray for you. I will trust God with you. I will wait for you.
Love you in advance,
~ Woman of Purity
