For anyone who knows me personally, knows I've always had a crush on someone. Growing up, I was always "talking" to someone... or more than one person (I did nothing wrong).
A few months ago I began to reflect on why I had been so worried about who I will end up with. It's something that really does worry me. Who I marry is a big deal to me, always has and always will be. A few years ago I started to pray for my future husband (because let's be real- he is out there). I pray for him daily, even if it's just asking God to be with him as he goes throughout his day. I pray that God is working in both of our lives to mold us both into the people we need to be for each other.
It always hurts when you stop dating or "talking" to someone you care about. But it's also kind of exciting because it only means you’re getting closer to meeting/ being with your future husband.
I mean, as I look back on the past few guys that have been in my life, I've realized they just keep getting better and better. My standards get higher after every guy, so the qualities of the men have gotten better! … oh yeah AND they have gotten better looking ;) ha! So I'd like to think whoever I marry will be even more amazing and a total hottie!! WOOHOOO!!
I pray about marriage daily because I want to be married for the rest of my life. I feel that so many people neglect the reverence of marriage and it breaks my heart to see that negligence. Who I marry will (probably) be the biggest decision of my life. The way I see it is... If I don't like the job I have, I can always quit and find a job that better suits me. If I don't like my hair, I can always get it cut and colored to how I like it. Don't like my weight, then I'll just hit the gym. If I don't like my clothes, I'll just go to J. Crew and get cuter ones. duh! :)
But my future spouse is out there [and YOURS is too!!]. He is an actual person, living, breathing, and walking around living his life (crazy, huh?!). I cannot change him into who I want him to be, that wouldn't be fair to him. When I get married I cannot just quit the relationship because it was too difficult. NO, it is for life!
Once you begin a family there are children involved, it's so much more than a simple out.
So if you are like me, in this season of life where all of your friends are getting married and your biggest concern is who will be your “plus one,” just remember you are not alone. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the wedding madness and wonder if your time will ever come, but my suggestion to you is to pray. Pray for your future spouse and put your desire for marriage into the hands of the Lord. He has someone special for you. Trust Him. God has a plan, trust that whoever you are supposed to marry will be a wonderful man and everything will work out, but in God’s time not yours.
Be Sassy. Be Sweet. Be You.
Classy, sassy, but oh so sweet!
