For My Husband

Updated: Apr 17, 2020


Engagement Photo with a man and a woman

The world says you don’t exist.

That a man clothed in righteousness won’t appear.

There are only men who pretend.

It’s impossible to be faithful,

Impossible to be pure,

Impossible to be gentle, a servant, humble, and strong. ⠀

You won’t hear God's voice

If you did; you won’t obey IT.

You’ll serve Him from obligation; not overwhelming love

You won’t KNOW Him.

You won’t call attention to boys and men

You’ll still be a boy. ⠀⠀

But That’s what they say. ⠀⠀


But I say no!

⠀⠀

No, No You’re WON'T and will NEVER be the savior -

But You will point others to Him.

You'll be righteous

Your eyes have caught His gaze. ⠀⠀

You’ll be perfect, as you’re being perfected by Him.

Not to complete me, but to shine under the radiance of the Son.

⠀⠀

Everything darkness and those devoid of light have spoken over you,

Your presence, or lack thereof - is now broken. ⠀⠀


It’s broken! ⠀⠀


No power does the world’s voice have over you.

You’re pure! You’re a leader. You serve.

⠀⠀

Everyone under your influence is elevated

You instill esteem and courage.

You’re a man after God’s own heart raising up both boys and men. ⠀⠀

Given a Powerful voice by the Father.

Strong because of His strength.

The world, it’s burdens, aren’t on your shoulders, it's on HIS. ⠀⠀


Shine! Shine under His presence Baby. Shine! ⠀⠀


It’s the best way you can serve me.

Run hard after Him.

It’s the best way you can love me.


You Hear His voice and obey it.

He speaks I love you and you weep. ⠀⠀

He raises you up as a mighty warrior

You fight from a place of victory

for your family, your friends, your enemies, and the lost. ⠀⠀


I marvel at the love between the Father and a son.

I see the heart of God, for me, all over again

And I, am undone.

I’m undone, by a God that would give up His SON for me.

And now, by meeting you

I’m undone by a God that provides His son to me. ⠀⠀


A God that would save such a sweet soul for me.

Your salvation causes me to look up and thank God.

It motivates me to continue to workout mines. ⠀

Indeed you do exist. ⠀⠀


“Now Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen"
