We are a growing community of intergenerational women who desire to faithfully pursue Jesus and help lead others to do the same. We believe in building an authentic community of Kingdom-minded women who say “YES” to where God leads them, no matter how risky it might feel. We are so glad you are here!
Now Walk it Out
We Are Live Salted!
This is from a real man who loves the Lord. A man who prays for and thinks about his future wife. This is a letter to her.
I am thrilled for the day I get to meet you, maybe I already have. I think of you often and wonder what you’ll be like; I often wonder if you think of me too. In regard to you, my prayer to the Lord is not that I find the right woman, but that I will be the right man, the kind of man that the right woman would be drawn to.
Now I share my struggle with you. Porn and sex are everywhere, more accessible than they have ever been at any point in history. Although I wish that it were not so, the battle to preserve my purity in a world that glorifies sex is hard but I fight it for you and for myself. I am not always successful but I continue to ask the Lord to pick me up and dust me off so that I may continue the fight. I want it to be a gift for you.
Whether its back massages, taking the kids to get haircuts, fixing a broken toilet, making the yard look great, or simply reminding you that you are beautiful, I want to be ready for that.
I also want you to know that I am scared. I’m scared I won’t get it right, that I’ll work too much and forget to give you my time. I am conscious of it, and I am thinking about it. I know I won’t get it right every time, but I will work to get better at it. I know that we’ll also have tough seasons, where I frustrate you, and you aren’t crazy about me (maybe you are). In those times, I want to be persistent and not give up. Giving up is not an option for me.
More important than all of the above, I hope that you are drawn to me because of my love for Jesus. Yeah, I might be a decent singer and willing to dance, but I want you to see how Jesus has radically transformed my life and made me the man that I am. I hope that where I am weak you will challenge me and help me grow. I am so excited for that.
I look forward to being known by you, not just my favorite color or meal, but the way I think and the things that make me tick. I want to know you and for you to know me, better than any other human being possibly could; it makes me smile just thinking about it. What an absolute joy it will be to know you one day.
You probably have days where you don’t think you’re good enough. Days where you are worried about what you look like or how adventurous you are. Maybe those days are many, maybe they are few. Either way, I want you to know that I’ll think you’re perfect, that I’ll probably really love your little imperfections. I cannot say it enough, I am SO excited to know you and to love you. I am so excited to love you and learn to listen to God’s voice as we venture through life together; it will be an adventure.
All my love,
Your Future Husband
