Write a letter to your future husband to encourage him

IMG_1028

To the man who will one day be my world,

You are everything God created you to be and you are perfect for me. I am so in love with your heart for God and your heart for people. I want to serve the Lord by your side faithfully all of my days. When you feel like everything you're giving just isn't enough remember God desires to be your source of strength. When you are weak He is strong. You have been given everything you need to accomplish the challenges set before you. God is going to use you to change the world.

When you are sad, remember it's okay to be sad, it's okay to cry. One day there will be no more tears. So cry now and hope for the future. I am here to share in your sadness and grief as well as your joy and success.

When you are lonely remember I am your biggest fan. I will always be for you. I will support you no matter what because that is what God has called me to do. When God made you He didn't make any mistakes. He made you with a purpose and a destiny, and He made you to be my husband. Your love is such a strong manifestation of Christ's love. It's irresistible.

Thank you for loving God.
Thank you for serving others.
Thank you for taking care of me.
Thank you for being strong for both of us.
Thank you for being humble.
Thank you for trusting that God's plan is better than ours.
Thank you for learning and growing.
Thank you for laying down your desires to honor the Lord.
Thank you for dying to yourself that Christ might live through you.
Thank you for speaking truth.

You are the love of my life and I will stand by your side during the battles we will encounter. I will bind up your wounds. I will take care of you when you're sick. I will hold your hand when you are scared. I will cry when you are hurting. I will pray for you always.

I want to love you with all I have in me until my dying day.

Love your girl, MiaHelen
