I always think about my future wife.
I think about what we’re going to do.
I think about how we’ll be together.
I think about all the things a Godly relationship would entail.
And with a hopeful heart, I heave a heavy sigh as I fantasize about all this.
But you know what?
I’m not even close to ready for a future wife.
Fantasizing about the ideal is easy. It’s fun. It’s joyful.
But there’s so much more than just the ideal in a marriage, in a relationship.
There will be problems.
I can’t speak for her, since I don’t even know who she is yet.
But me? Oh my goodness, I have so much to work on.
I’m so prideful. I don’t want my pride to hinder my passionate love for my wife.
I’m selfish. I’m competitive. I can be very condescending.
I have all these areas in my life where I need to God to work.. and I’m non-stop thinking about my future wife? Shoot, Dan. You’re not ready. You won’t be ready for a while. So stop sweating it and letting your emotions run free.
Father.. please continue to be patient with me. It must be piercing Your heart to see how much more I’m thinking about my future wife than I am about You.
Ahh.. I’m sorry.
My heart is Yours, Lord.
'Cause while I may not be ready for my future wife, I will always be ready for You.
My unconditional and passionate Lover.
It’s all about You, Abba.
