Dear Future Husband,
As a single woman, I know I am WHOLE. When you came into my life, I became ONE with you. I was my own soul mate before anybody’s else. Now I am yours for life. God blessed me with you. The wait was challenging and sometimes I would lose my patience before I met you. I had to remind myself the longer God made me waited for you, the greater the man you would be. As I waited for you to find me, I would recite this bible verse to myself.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
My life was not incomplete before I met you, but it has more meaning now as your wife. I now have a new purpose and duty as your wife. The idea may seem silly to some, but I wrote down the qualities I wanted in you. I wanted to claim what kind of King I wanted before I was even blessed with you. None of the traits I wrote were physical (take heed.). Your appearance will change, but I pray your heart doesn’t. Promise me you will fulfill these qualities to your best knowledge.
Be a God fearing man. Go to God for all your sources. Seek me THROUGH God and we can endure anything. Be Loyal, Trustworthy and Loving. Awesome Provider. Hardworking and the drive to do anything through Jesus Christ. The strength to carry me when I can’t be a strong backbone. You have a plan. You have a vision. You are a praying warrior. You touch my soul. You are respectful and know how to be a gentlemen. Forget feeling “butterflies” with you. When you hold my hand, I want to feel warm and secure knowing you will protect me. When I’m down and out, you got me.
As your wife, I will promise to be the best helpmeet and supporter I can. I will SUBMIT. I will pray with you. I will take my role and let God and you lead our household. You will take your role as head and I as the helpmeet. I am your backbone, meaning you have my support on all the decisions we make in our marriage.
For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. -Ephesians 5:23
As your wife, I will be a REFLECTION of what I expect from you. I promise to love you and live by our vows. Thank you for making me into a better woman. Thank you for choosing me. Thank God you prayed for me. Thank God I have you.
Your Future Wife.
