Honestly, when I think about getting married, the thing I look forward to probably the most is just those moments when we’re just lying in bed, either just waking up just getting into bed. I just imagine feeling so safe, so comfy, next to the man God appointed to be for me. I just can’t wait for that.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. - Luke 12:7
If God knows every individual hair on our heads, then surely he knows when we are ready to enter a marriage minded relationship. And this doesn’t only apply to you, but your future husband too.
Whoever your future husband is, God knows him more than he knows himself. He knows his strengths and his weaknesses. He knows what areas he thrives in and what areas he needs to grow in. He knows everything that needs to happen in his life prior to meeting you. We don’t know why God makes us wait and why our wait may last longer than others, but we do know that in the waiting, He is shaping and molding us and preparing for things ahead.
If you desire marriage, hold onto this. It is far better to wait for the relationship that was in the right timing than it is to jump into a relationship with someone who wasn’t ready. Strongly, healthy Christ-centered relationships take time and spiritual maturity. Waiting on this can be hard, but the reward is worth it.
As you wait for your future husband, pray for his spiritual journey. Pray that God strengthens him in all the areas where he needs to grow prior to entering a relationship with you. Find peace in knowing that God is preparing both you and him for the future He has in store for you.

I’m looking forward to the first day I’m going to wake up beside you and be able to call you my husband.
I’m looking forward to all the little adventures we’re going to experience - even when this adventures will only be our daily life because every moment with you is extraordinary.
I’m looking forward to the mornings I can kiss you awake and bring you breakfast to the bed.
I’m also looking forward to the mornings I’m allowed to give you hope and strength for your working day.
I’m looking forward to kiss you good bye when you’re leaving the house and welcome you back with dinner at the end of the day.
I’m looking forward to the moments when you’re telling me how great your day was. When you’re talking passionately about how much you love your work and I’m going to join your joy.
But somehow I’m also looking forward to the day when you’re telling me how difficult and exhausting your day was. Because then I’m going to try giving you some comfort and love in a hug. And I’m going to massage you until you feel refreshed again.
I’m looking forward to the all the days we’re going to have dinner together and thank our Lord for blessing us with all those good things in our life.
I’m looking forward to spending evenings cuddling with you under a million of blankets and to kiss every fiber of you.
I’m looking forward to the nights I’m allowed to kiss you good night and telling you how much I love you while I’m praying to God to bless you.
I’m looking forward to the first day our newborn won’t let us sleep and we’re quarreling about who is getting up.
I’m looking forward to nurture our kids with a love that is based on Christ.
I’m looking forward to sitting around our Christmas tree and playing on the guitar while you and our kids are singing along.
I’m looking forward to hide some Easter eggs for our kids and also surprising you.
I’m looking forward to wondering with you how our kids could grow up that fast.
I’m looking forward to the days we’re going to look at each other - married for 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 years or longer - and thinking we’re loving each other even more as on the day we exchanged vows.
I’m looking forward to all the days we’re going to spend together until God decides our time is over.
I’m looking forward to our life knowing that it’s going to be one big celebration and you’re the greatest gift.
Darling, I love you now and forever.
To my future husband, lets spoil our kids with the word of God and never leave them wondering who Jesus is. Let’s lead by example and love our children unconditionally the way christ loves us. I promise to stand by your side as you lead our family closer to God. I’m so excited to have a family of our own! I love you even now. Love, your future wife.
I pray that your patience with me will be as much as the love you’ll have for me. I’ll be the most challenging person you’ve come in contact with, but I promise you I’ll be worth it. I have so much I need to work on for myself and my only hope is that you’ll be supporting me in any way you think we will benefit as a team. I promise to love you and everything about you, I promise to be your number one supporter and cheerleader. I pray that as I work on myself, you’ll be working on yourself so that we can be the ultimate team God would want us to be. I’ll admit I’m very self conscious and stuck in this “being way too passive” phase. But I’m working on it for me, for us and our future family. My promise to you is that I’ll work hard now, working and getting a degree that’ll lead into a career so that we maybe able to take care of and provide for our future kids. I can’t wait to meet you and start our journey together. But until then, just know I pray about your well being and that we will have the patience and strength to endure each other and all other trials we shall face. I pray that we’ll have that fairy tale love and happily ever after when the time is right, and we’ve become who we are meant to be to meet each other I pray you’ll walk in my life soon, so that we may start our journey together, but for now. I love you,
