Hello, ya'll! Today I want to sit here and share with ya'll something that is on my heart. Here goes...
What I don't pray for in my future husband. Yes, I pray for him. We all should pray for our future husband/wife. And, I admit, I need to pray more that he will be a man after God's own heart-things along that line.
I do pray that he will be told about Jesus if he's not yet saved. And I pray for him to wait for me as I wait for him. And I pray for other things.
But you know what I don't pray for?
I don't pray that he'll be tall, or have a certain hair color. I don't pray for him to be physically strong or wear jeans and boots instead of a suit.
I don't pray for things like that and you know why?
“Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.”
The Psalmist says to put our trust in God. I want to trust God for what my husband should looks like, or the job he should have.
Because if I create a look that I want in a man, I might just miss what God brings me because I was expecting something that I wanted instead.
I don't know about ya'll, but I don't want to miss out on the goodness that God has in store for us!
We need to pray for God to make our hearts and our spouse's heart ready for Him to bring us together!
Imagine, God's choice will be so much better then ours! My husband won't be perfect, but he'll be perfect for me!
“Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.”
I want to stand in God's complete and perfect will of God for me, and not my will for myself!
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Because His ways are so much better, higher, then mine!
I hope you all have a blessed rest of the week!
