If you earned someone’s love because you cook great meals, look good, keep your body tight, take the person on lavish trips, and spoil them, they will likely lose that “love” for you once you no longer have those things to offer.
I wrote this as an example of the mindset each of us should have while we’re in our season of waiting. Hope it blesses you as it blessed me to write it. I pray it produces a resolved in both and put our hearts at rest. May it be your letter to your future spouse as well. 🙂
As much as we are enamored by beauty and have great appetites for sex, when seeking out a wife, it’s unreasonable to think that those things alone will produce a happy and successful marriage.
I fell in love with the first boy I ever dated and then I fell into the bed with him. The next thing I knew is I was five months pregnant at twenty years old and standing in my pastor’s office saying “I do” to someone that I should have been saying “I don’t” to!
Be open minded. Life is very different once you are making it on your own. I know I’ve been there. Sometimes, it won’t go exactly as you planned. Don’t get stressed out or wound up in frustration – find another way around it. There is always another way.
Listen, I know we often wonder a million “whys” as to our current singleness and sometimes we even blame ourselves. We say things like: “What’s wrong with me?” “If I had only done things differently when I was younger…” “I got so much baggage no one will ever want me.” I happen to believe, however, that where we are at this very moment is all a part of God’s process.
