As I sit here writing today, I cannot help but feel that God has shown me down the path of what a holy, Godly single and married life should look like. I do not pretend that I have it all, or even most of it figured out, but through a long and often tough journey I have grown closer to God and you, my future wife.
Though I do not yet know you or where this path will lead us down the road of life, I have been filled with an incredible and never before experienced love and sense of direction. While it may seem strange to say now, I love you and desire is to spend my life with you and you alone. When the time comes for us to speak our vows to one another, I believe God will be present helping us make the right decisions. And even after our wedding as we begin our lives as one, I pray that we will always remember who brought us together and keep him at the forefront marriage, for it is him who has placed this love in my heart for you. As we grow old together in love may we never forget the blessings we have received from God. Likewise, may our love for one another never diminish, but grow stronger as we live our lives together.
My journey to this point has not been easy with the temptations of this world, but as I discover my love for you, my still undiscovered bride, I pray that I remain pure for you. I have made a covenant between myself and living God to remain as an unopened gift to you. I do not take this promise lightly for I have made this pledge to the all powerful God of the universe who has created the world, spoken to Moses and continues to work in hearts today as evidenced by me. While temptations will never permanently flee, I feel no desire to waste the wonderful gift God has given to us both, by giving into a the sinful urge of a one time experience, the momentary glimpse of immodest dress or the bodies flaunting themselves on the computers of the world. No, these are not for me! My one sexual desire is to be with you, one man one woman together in marriage.
At this moment and many more, I pray also for you. The world can be a harsh place filled with many a temptation for young women as well. May the Lord place the discernment and wisdom necessary upon you today to flee from these desires of the world as I so desperately do. Though we are not yet together as one, let us fight this battle against impure thoughts and actions together so that we may remain unstained until the day of our marriage. As I write, I cannot help but think back to the song Wait for Me by Rebecca St James.
Darling did you know I dream about life together Knowing it will be forever I'll be yours and you'll be mine And darling when I say Till death do us part I'll mean it with all of my heart Now and always faithful to you
Cause, I am waiting for Praying for you darling Wait for me too Wait for me as I wait for you Cause, I am waiting for Praying for you darling Wait for me too Wait for me as I wait for you Darling wait Darling wait
Now I know you may have made mistakes But there's forgiveness and a second chance So wait for me Darling wait for me Wait for me wait for me
Cause, I am waiting for Praying for you darling Wait for me too Wait for me as I wait for you Darling wait Darling wait Wait for me Darling wait Cause I'm waiting for you Cause I'm waiting for you So wait for me Darling wait Wait for me
I pray that you share these same feeling. God has given us an incredible gift in marriage and let us always remember that and keep it close to our hearts. I look forward to spending my life with you through the good and the bad, the spiritual highs and the temptations. May we always be there for each other in love and dedication to strengthen our spiritual, emotional and physical relationships with each other. I feel so blessed that God has given us this gift and has shown me the way to conduct myself until we are together.
May we always fight the fight for purity together and with Jesus Christ as our guiding light.
