To the boy who will marry my daughter,
I prayed for you today as I do every day. I wondered what marvelous things God has in store for your life. I wondered what you might look like, and who you might be. I wondered when and how our paths may cross one another.
As my own children have grown in my womb, so you continue to grow in my heart.
I pray that you are cared for and loved by those who are taking the time to teach you what it means to be a young man. I ask that God grants them with wisdom and strength as they lead by example.
My hope is that you are seeking God’s will in your life, for I know that a man who loves God with all of his heart will love my daughter with all of his strength.
Stand strong in the face of temptation. Guard your mind from the lure of seduction. We live in a world that offers a front seat to sexual sin. Blurring the lines between lust and love, it deceives the heart. I stand in the gap praying that God will sustain you, and give you strength until the day you have taken your bride.
Gentleness is a sign of great strength–humility a symbol of courage and stability, don’t be deceived by those who deem them as weak.
As fresh fallen snow, so is the future before you. A canvas soon to be painted by footsteps. Choose wisely. Have fun. Work hard. Don’t sweat the big stuff. Trust God with your future and allow its unfolding in His perfect time.
I pray that you hunger for the Word of God, for great leaders are those who are led by wisdom and truth.
When you experience days that bring you down to your knees, rejoice. Be exceedingly glad. Our Father is shaping and molding you into the man He designed you to be.
While you’re doing your part, I’m doing mine.
I’m raising a daughter who understands the value of purity, patience, and truth.
I’m training a girl to be a woman of virtue and strength.
I’m teaching her that inner beauty is of great value, and that outer beauty doesn’t have to conform.
We’re showing her what a committed relationship looks like as we lead by example.
And wouldn’t you know it… she’s also praying for you.
May God keep you safe in His arms as you’re growing in grace.
You are loved by an almighty God,
The Time-Warp Wife
