Dear Future Husband,
I’m sure you are worth the wait, but I’m not waiting on you!
Of course, as a Christian woman, I will wait on you in terms of purity. Because the Bible says my body is a temple – not my own, bought with a price, therefore, I should honor God with it (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). And I will wait on your pursuit. Because he who finds a wife finds a good thing and receives favor from the Lord (Proverbs 18:22). But this letter is not about waiting in terms of purity or your pursuit.
It’s about that thing that we as single women do – where we wait to do the things God has called us to do until we meet you! We push off buying homes, starting ministries, going on mission trips. Because for some reason, we feel we can’t do these things until we have our husbands by our sides. And that’s just not true!
Dear future husband, I’m not other women and I’m not waiting on you!
If He calls me to buy a home, I’m buying it! And I will open up my home for Bible studies, for cooking meals, and for those who just need to sit and have someone to talk with. If He calls me to start a ministry, I’m starting it! And I will minister to whomever, however He calls me to. Maybe I will minister to other women, teen girls, or young children – maybe through sports, mentoring, or even through poetry. And if He calls me to go on mission, I’m going! Whether it be to some remote village in Africa, to a school in Guatemala, or who knows, to a city where I finally meet you.
But dear future husband, I’m not waiting on you! I’m not waiting on you to do the things God has called me to do.
And you should not wait on me. There is purpose to our singleness – and things that you could be doing for the Lord, even before you ever lay your eyes on me!
So, dear future husband, I’m going to do the things He calls me to. And you’re going to do the things He calls you to. Our work for the Lord will not begin the day we meet!
Rather, before two singles’ ministries become one, we will have already begun the work the Lord has set out before us.
Your Future Wife
