MY DEAR, SWEET HUSBAND
I can’t imagine my life without you. I adore every second I get to spend with you. I love you more than I ever believed I could love a single soul.
You are the epitome of love. You are the single most striking man to walk this earth. You are my stronghold. You are the man. Dear husband, you are my leader. You are all I want and need.
AND YOU WILL NEVER COMPLETE ME
Even though I feel completely undeserving of you, I am sorry to say that you will never be enough for me.
Don’t get the wrong idea, because I love you and need you more than I could ever express. But I need someone else more.
I need someone else to complete me.
HE IS PERFECT
HE IS EVER LOVER
HE IS POWERFUL
HE IS ALL I WILL EVER NEED
And he is all you will ever need, too.
Do you know who it is now, dear husband? His name is Jesus, and we can’t do this without him.
As much as I want you to complete me, as much as I wish that it could just be that simple, it’s not. We are going to argue, we are going to get annoyed with one another. There will always be quirks that we don’t find cute anymore.
AND THAT’S WHY WE NEED HIM
There will be days when we are exhausted and the smallest of things is all the ignition needed to spark an argument between us.
WE WILL ALWAYS BE FLAWED, AND THAT’S WHY I NEED HIM
That’s why we need Him. Oh, my love, we need Him more than we know.
Throughout our marriage, there will always be trials. Some seasons will be filled with more and some will have less, and we need Him to help us.
You are not perfect, and neither am I. That’s why we need the Perfect One to hold us together.
The world is a harsh place. We need Him to help us leave the harshness outside our marriage. To keep our marriage filled with love and kindness. To extend grace to one another. We can’t do it without Him.
Dear husband, no matter how hard I try to make it true, you can’t complete me. He does. Just like I can’t complete you, but only He can.
WE NEED HIM
So let’s work together. Life is hard work, and marriage is even harder work. Let’s work our butts off for this marriage. Let’s make it our goal to do all that we do to extend the love of Christ through our marriage.
We can’t do this marriage thing without Him. No matter how appealing it sounds for our relationship to be always sweet, kind, without flaw, and filled with nothing but love, it’s not. We are imperfect people living in a world of sin.
WE NEED HIM
Oh, how I love to be in your arms, my love. I love to have your arms as a stronghold around me, protecting me always. How I dream that all marriages could be like that constantly with no sin from the world entering in.
But we are surrounded by sin.
Let’s work on making our marriage stand out from the rest of the world. Let’s make it our goal not to be perfect, but to be more.
MORE LOVE. MORE KINDNESS. MORE GRACE. MORE UNDERSTANDING.
We are far from perfect, but we can still have a marriage that is full of love, kindness, grace, and understanding.
Dear husband, let’s not settle. Let’s strive to be more than anybody says is possible. Because with Him, all things are possible.
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26
DEAR HUSBAND, WE NEED HIM
I thank God every day that I get to spend my life with you. That we get to build a marriage pleasing in the eyes of the Lord, together.
I thank Him for you. That you protect me, provide for me, and love me unconditionally.
EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE NOT PERFECT AND HAVE MANY FLAWS, OH MY LOVE, YOU ARE PERFECT FOR ME.
So, my dear husband, whom my soul longs for and loves, you will never fully complete me. But together we are one, together in holiness, and that is enough for me.
Without you, I wouldn’t be me.
I found the one whom my soul loves. – Song of Solomon 3:4
