Okay, so this is an odd title for a woman whose only daughter is just 8 years old – LOL!
I pray for a lot of things each day and praying for Chloe’s future husband is one of them. It was just brought to my mind as I read an article that was written by a very grounded 13 year old young man.
It just really got me to thinking about how Chloe’s future husband (Lord’s will) is out there somewhere… right now. I am praying that his parents have been training him and laying out a firm foundation that is on the Rock.
I am praying that he is just as wonderful as my husband! I want Chloe to marry a man that will love the Lord first and her second. He will be her protector and provider. He will lead his family with love and integrity. He will be a strong man who will not waver in trust of the Lord.
Thinking about my daughter’s future this way makes me feel excited and sad at the same time! I may only have 10 years left with her, but perhaps it will be longer…. I have a lot to accomplish in that time – and I am sure that there is another mother out there right now, praying for my daughter – even though she not know her – but my daughter will one day be the wife of her son! I am sure that she is praying that Chloe will love God first and her husband second. That she will be her husband’s helper and that her husband can trust in her. That she will be a godly wife and a godly mother.
I pray that the Lord uses me to help her become that woman and that wife and mother. I pray that I can be an example to her (I’ve got a lot of work to do!!!). I pray that I can instill in her a love for the Lord, a love for family, a love for the hurting and lost.
