I have been thinking about marriage a lot lately, and not in the “Oh Lord I need a husband, find me a husband, Lord please, I need a man” way either. I just look forward to the ministry of marriage. I look forward to having children, being a helpmeet, supporting my husband. I look forward to prayers and Bible studies when we’re courting. Being a single woman is nice, but there are times when I think it would be nice to have a companion.
I really want to do this the right way whenever it happens. So long I have been looking forward to the friendship, the intentions being made known by him, starting that road, Bible studies, and times of prayer. That will be an exciting time in my life. I even look forward to the business of wedding day preparations! No Bridezilla here though, lol.
I look forward to raising and having children. Childbirth is so amazing to me. Wow. A spermatozoon and an egg meet. This spermatozoa race to the waiting egg and ONE makes it. And then it penetrates this egg and over the course of 9 months, life is formed! This little ‘blob’ turns into a human being. Eyes, mouth, hands, FINGERS to GRASP! Absolutely amazing. The Lord is truly preeminent and without ONE SINGLE peer. No one comes close to the depths of His creativity. Follicles are there; hair grows one by one – THOUSANDS of them. DNA is written on EVERY single cell. UNIQUE DNA that NO ONE has. How amazing is THAT! And to think all of that will prayerfully be going on in me some day is a miracle within itself.
It’s an exciting thing to anticipate, and I do pray that is the Will of God that I am married someday. I don’t know when or where he is, but I do pray for my husband nightly – that he’s encouraged, experiencing God’s grace in its fullness, being filled with Godly, Scriptural wisdom, that whatever he is struggling with is broken for the Glory of God. I pray that he’s acknowledging God’s peace no matter what he’s dealing with. So yea, I look forward to meeting this guy to tell him these things. I pray he’s encouraged in Christ. I really do.
That’s enough ‘mushiness’ from me today. 🙂
