Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose (game over)
Happy Superbowl Sunday y’all!! Not gonna lie about 40 minutes ago I came home from church and brunch with my girls and was poooopeddddd with zero motivation. Like, no motivation to study and not even to blog (which is super surprising because I LOVE BLOGGING and talking to y’all). I was just lying in my bed with my church clothes on not wanting to do a thing BUT…luckily I cancelled my Netflix subscription and I got my booty out of bed. Made some green tea and ate a little peanut butter and now I am super excited to talk to you about “I pray for my Husband.”
So here is a word for word of my first journal, same one I’ve been referring to my last couple of posts. We are focusing on “Full Hearts” with emphasis just on “I pray for my Husband.”
1/11/15 (Yes I accidently wrote down the wrong year)
First day of Class, X-ray on my thumb, Mom says I should do a blog
John 4:14 But Whoever drinks the water I give him will never know thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
I pray Lord for self-respect, value, and confidence. I pray for Joy. I pray for Hannah (one of my best friends who had a big decision to make) and Jordan (my big brother. I pray for my Husband. I pray Lord for peace with myself.
Alright gentlemen I really don’t want to exclude you in this so I’m gonna try and make a mental note to say spouse instead of just husband but if I forget then just take husband and replace it with wife. Kk? Cool.
So your spouse, pretty big deal right? I mean that’s the person that is gonna be with you through everything for a long long long time. There comes a point and time in our lives that we start thinking about that mystery person. Who will they be? Maybe I’ve met them before? What are they gonna look-like? What are they going to be like? All these questions pop into our head from time to time, especially when we start dating. I am a full believer that no matter how young, I never wanted to date a guy that I couldn’t see myself marrying. Might sound kinda strange but why would I waste their time and my time when I don’t see a future with them? And sometimes you don’t know until you start dating. I’m not saying be like super super picky, “he/she doesn’t hold my hand the way I envisioned my future spouse to.” Like come on people!!
Another thing, yes friends we do have this “idea” of what our future spouse is supposed to look like or be like but let me remind you… WE (you and I) no matter how confident and sure of ourselves we are, DO NOT KNOW BEST. Take a glimpse at this:
These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. God has planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
Pretty darn cool right? God has something better in store, always.
I wanna talk to y’all about something I do that is so much better than “thinking about my future hubby”. It is praying about him, for him and writing to him. “hmm syd interesting, how do you pray or write to someone that you’ve never met or don’t know who they are?” Completely valid question my friend and here is my response. You know what kind of man you want your husband to be or you know what kind of woman you want your wife to be. Pray for those characteristics. Pray that someone puts a smile on his/her face that day. Pray that his/her relationship with God is on the path it should be. This is so powerful y’all. Imagine this, if you are praying for your future spouse and your future spouse is praying for you then you are already connected through our Lord. Your relationship is already being built before you’ve met. WOAHHHH!!! That is so awesome. Pray for your spouse, they need your thoughts and prayers, they need you. Praying for our future forever valentine is one of the most intimate acts we can do.
Makes your heart full…no matter how many times I pray for that Mr. Right or write him a quick little letter I smile. I don’t feel unhappy that I don’t know who he is yet or feel discouraged because God hasn’t revealed him to me. I just smile because I know God is working. I was going to share a letter that I wrote to my future man but I feel like that is something that should be between him and I so sorry y’all. But hey maybe he is reading this rn and get the honor of reading my super ugly handwritten letter. Hey hun ;)
Anyway y’all, this wraps up my “Clear Eys, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” year in review. If you feel overwhelmed by life and like God is not doing anything just be patient and wait. I was completely overwhelmed (in a good way) when I read back through my journal and saw how much the Lord has worked through my life this past year. Which….only makes me so excited to see what 2017 has in store for me and for you! As always my comment section and “talk to me” section is here for you. I’m a talker so I’m always up for a conversation!
