It’s been quite a while since I posted a Women Praying Boldly update.
And honestly, I’ve debated quite a bit about whether or not I should post this one, because sometimes, sharing honestly and openly is scary. It’s hard to be vulnerable and transparent about what’s going on in our hearts.
But then I thought, if this can be an encouragement to even just one woman, then it’s worth being brave about. It’s worth sharing and writing truthfully.
So, here we go… :)
As I’ve been reading The Circle Maker and growing in my prayer life, I’ve felt challenged to devote 40 days to prayer—specifically for my future husband/desire to be part of a marriage that brings glory to the Lord.
Beginning on June 25, I made a list of prayers/scripture that have been heavy on my heart, and I started circling those prayers and promises from God.
So far, every single day, I’ve prayed through them.
Even when I’m tired.
Even when my doubt feels bigger than my faith.
And those prayers have already affected my heart.
They make me feel more connected to God and to the unexplainable hope I have for marriage.
And I like praying for my future husband, because it makes me feel closer to him, even though I have no idea who he is! ;) I want to be a prayer partner for him when we get married, so it makes sense to start now, to be lifting him up every day and praying for him, his dreams, and his walk with the Lord.
I want to be a blessing to him even now.
It is my hope that these prayers will begin a foundation for us, and that the Lord will use them for His glory.
And one last little thing just for fun…
I recently stumbled upon these adorable “My Better Half” interviews over at Amanda Jane Jone’s blog. They are so sweet and quirky and cute, and they really reflect my own hopes to marry a man who will be my best friend.
A man I’ll be better for the Kingdom with.
A man I can be silly with and creative with.
And a man I can grow with, learn with, and create a life story with — one that we’ll fill with our own unique traditions, moments, and memories.
