It’s been over a year since I last wrote to you
Since I last wrote down manifestos, structures or project plans of what our love story would look like.
Built our foundations with borrowed plans from society and other picture-perfect couples
Mapped out our journey based on fantasies and deceptive ingenuity
And it’s been a year of learning
And following a lead.
Following the principles of the one who before we drew first breath, knew our beginning from the end.
Who wrote in a great book, innumerable promises that would remind us over and over again of how much He’s interested in our lives.
Who had me convinced that I didn’t need to write our story
But to submit my pen and watch how it unfolds.
Dear future husband,
I have not come with sweetened words or plethoras of promises that might be hard to keep.
Today, I have come with questions.
Have you come to fully understand what love means?
Not the love that wants to see beneath my outfit
Not the love that’s being defined by society or pop-culture
But the love that is from God. That is God Himself.
Have you come to fully understand that we can’t do life together, love as we ought to if we don’t give the Holy Spirit the key to our hearts?
If we don’t let the only begotten of the Father be the foundation
We’ll be like builders who sleep while watching the city.
Have you come to realize that we can’t fully love each other, thoroughly know each other if we still neglect the Father?
Or don’t even know what His voice sounds like
Do you think we can come together as broken people, wishing to fill the broken pieces of ourselves?
We’ll be a mess if we haven’t been made whole by the Father.
Have you any idea how vulnerable and open we’ll be with each other?
How we’ll learn to forgo our past and place our future right in God’s hands all the while doing the present being led by the Spirit?
How committed we’ll stay with each other?
Choosing each other daily till forever?
I want a love life devoid of selfishness, self-centeredness, putting flesh above the spirit, loving on our terms, jealousy, impatience and envy
And to want a stable relationship with you is to have a real relationship with God.
I know these things might not come easy to me, maybe to you too.
But you know what I’m most certain of?
With you in my life and with the Father’s Spirit as a guide
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I can love you wholeheartedly.
Give my heart, soul and body to you.
Be your biggest supporter
Your truth, your guidance and your friend
Through Christ who strengthens me.
And I really hope that this God strengthens you too
That you have come into a place of surrender and submission with Him and nothing in your life is done without Him
Even when it involves choosing me.
I really hope that you have gained freedom from whatever baggage you might have
And healed from whatever wound you might have.
So when we meet
Our Two becomes One.
Formed by God, Chosen by God, Called by God, and Joined by God.
And now this three remains
Faith that our life together is a huge representation of heaven right on Earth.
Hope that you’re somewhere pursuing righteousness, faith and peace(might be me)
Love that we both have for God and for ourselves even before we meet
And the greatest of this is Love ❤️
Whew! This is me being a hopeless romantic writing this not-so-poetic-words to somebody’s son in my rawest, spiritual form. I really hope someone out there reads this and learn a lesson or two from it.
Love is beautiful, wholesome and unique when God writes the story.❤❤
