I used to write my future husband letters but I’d always forget which notebook they were in so I’d start a new one. Then one day I realized there are letters in like 30 notebooks and that seems like a nightmare to hand him on our wedding day 🤦🏻♀️
Then I read an article about how a woman bought a tie and everyday she prayed for her marriage while holding it. Years went by and she met “the one”, and on their wedding day she gave her soon to be husband the prayer soaked tie.
At first I was like 🤨 🙄 but I saved the article and earlier this year it popped back up. At 31, I’m reminded daily by what seems like everyone, that I’m not married and my clock is ticking. I had accepted that I wasn’t marriage material and I’d be alone forever. But one day I was randomly walking through the men’s department at Nordstrom rack and I saw this tie.
It’s a pretty basic tie, But the colors are one of my favorite combos and I thought they would be nice for a fall or winter wedding. I think I have a Pinterest board dedicated to this theme, plus it was on sale so I grabbed it.
Most days it just hangs on the door knob of my bedroom but almost every morning after I thank God for giving me another day, I walk out of my room and touch this tie. Some days it’s just a quick “lord, let him have great day” and some days the tie comes to hang out with the word. I pray for his career, his family, his relationship with God, our future, our marriage, children and that I am everything he needs in a wife.
Times have been rough and going through this pandemic has been extremely lonely but I have complete faith and trust in Gods timing. It is a desire of mine to be a wife, to have at least one child and I don’t believe God would create those desires if it was to never happen. There is a reason he needs me to be single, there is a purpose and I must continue to be still and patient and be fervent in my prayers for both my future husband and myself.
So hang in there fellow singles, don’t dwell but rather embrace this time, lean into God, look and listen for his voice throughout your day and you’ll be amazed at what he wants to tell you.
The best is yet to come 😊😊
