To my future spouse,
I was thinking about you. I am thinking about you. And I will be thinking about you maybe some time before I sleep, study, or whenever. I can’t wait for the day when God brings us together. I don’t know when it will happen, or how it will happen, but I know that it will be at a perfect timing. Other possibility is that I might have met you, and I just don’t know that you are the ‘one’.
I have my history, you have yours. I have my weaknesses, and you have yours. Whatever they are, I will accept all of them because our pasts are a part of our lives and they make us who we are today. We share a lot of things in common. However, we may still fight, but it is done out of love. We may still argue, but it is done out of love. We may still criticize, but it is done out of love. We will have ups and downs throughout our adventure together, but at the end of the day, we can find ourselves holding each other’s hand – overcoming all obstacles together and depending on God every step of the way. Well, it’s true that there’s no ‘perfect’ love in the world other than God’s love for us. That is why our relationship is grounded by His love. Because really, until we can fully understand God’s love for us that surpasses our knowledge, we cannot genuinely love others at times when all the unpleasing circumstances come in our way. (And yes, warning number one, I can be unpleasing sometimes. Just sometimes.)
I am looking forward for the things we are going to do together: waking up every morning with you by my side, studying the Word together as we encourage each other at all times, having little sweet conversations over dinner every night you come home from work, cuddling on the couch doing nothing when the TV is on and we don’t even have any idea what we are watching, supporting and cheering for each other when things look a little rough, and maybe one day, sending off our children to their first day of school?
As I am writing this letter, I am continually praying for you. Praying that you will love God more than anything or anyone else in the world, including me. Praying that you will grow into a man of God, picking up your cross as you faithfully walk with Him. And I am praying that you are also praying for me 🙂
I am excited to grow old together! Are you?
Your future spouse ❤
P.S: I will understand if someday you have to cancel our anniversary dinner date because you have other responsibilities in church that day. But, I am warning you that you have to make up for it!
