You know what I realized when I was on my way home today? I was having a conversation about dating and marriage yesterday with my mom and sister, and it had me thinking today.
Somewhere on this earth, my husband is doing something! As I am writing this right now, my husband is doing something! That man is going to be the one to fall in love with me! He is going to find me worth getting down on one knee for, he is going to find me worth crossing the oceans for, he is going to find me worth being with, and he is going to find me worth having a family with.
He is going to think I am worth it and that I am worth everything. He is going to cherish my walk with Christ, he is going to encourage me, he is going to be a help in guiding me closer to Christ, and he is going to find me worth fighting for.
Somewhere, my future husband thinks I am worth it. Though my dating life is confusing, horrible, and I’ve had no success so far, that doesn’t matter in the eyes of the man I will marry, for he will love me anyways. My husband is living right now and hopefully he prays for me.
Everyone always tells ladies that “your husband thinks you are worth it,” but I never hear the opposite said to a guy. We always hear people telling other girls “You are worth more than rubies,” and though that is most certainly true, I rarely hear others tell a man that he is worth more than this world could offer.
I know that my future husband will think that I am worth it, but does he know that he is worth it too?
We all know that our spouses will love us, but they should also know that we will love them too. My future husband is worth it, my future husband is worth being loved unconditionally, my future husband is worth sacrificing things for, he is worth crossing every ocean for, and he is worth me supporting him forever and having a family with.
Though I know that he will be an encouragement to me, I will be an even bigger encouragement to him! His walk with Christ will mean so much to me, his fears will be something that I will pray over, his dreams will become my dreams for him, and I will pray for him always.
If I want him to think I am worth it, I have to think he is worth it too. Dating and marriage is about being selfless. If my husband is willing to go above and beyond for me, then I will do the same for him.
If he is willing to be there for me, I will be there for him. I want us to be there for each other and to know each other’s worth. Like I mentioned before, we all talk about a woman’s worth being more than rubies, but let’s not forget the worth of our future husband.
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14
Men were created in God’s image as well, Christ though they were worth dying for as well, and they are just as worthy of love and grace like women are. They were also fearfully and wonderfully made, and they deserve to know that! Your husband is going to love you like Christ loves the Church, so his worth exceeds the worth of this world!
Though I dream of my future husband cherishing me and loving me unconditionally, I think about loving him the same way. I think of what I can do for him as a loving wife, how I will help him on the bad days, how I will be there for him, and how I can keep him smiling through the good and the bad.
My husband’s worth exceeds anything on this earth. My walk with Christ is first, but he is second. Since I believe that he is waiting for me and that he is praying for me, I will do the same, for my future husband is worthy of marrying a woman who loved him even before he marries her.
It may sound absurd, but I love my future husband dearly even though we are not married yet. I pray for any dream that he has, I ask God to protect him in the things he is doing, and I pray that he knows his worth in Christ.
“The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Proverbs 31:11-12
Most importantly, he is worthy of marrying a woman who is strong in Christ, and I want to be that woman. If he’s going to love me like Christ loves the Church, then I want to be the best wife possible, the godliest wife possible, and the most supportive and compassionate wife possible.
My husband is worthy of that, so I will work on myself to be that woman! Though I know my worth, I want him to know his worth, and that can start with working on my walk with Christ. He deserves a woman who is strong in Christ, who is passionate for Christ, and who obtains the characteristics of a godly woman, and I want to be the exact woman he is praying for, for my future husband is worth it!
