The best way you can prepare your heart for your future husband is to surrender everything in your life to God. To hold out your hands, palms up, and pray, “Lord, I’m yours.”
Take a few minutes and write down a summary of who you are. Write out all the things you like and dislike. Write out major events in your life—from as far back as you remember. Write down your happiest times and your saddest times. Write down your success and your failures. After you write all of this down, fold up this paper and place it in your hands, and then offer yourself up to God. Ask Him to take all of you. Then ask Him to show you what His purpose is for your life.
The best way to prepare your heart for God’s is to be surrendered completely to Him.
Likewise, the best way to prepare your heart for your future husband is to be following God with all your heart. When you give all of your heart to God … in the amazing way God works … you have even more to give to your future husband! More of your true self. And the more you see yourself through God’s eyes, the better prepared you’ll be for a lifelong commitment.
Finally, to be surrendered to God is to know Him, and the best way to know Him is to know His Word. Just like a servant is always listening to know what her master requires, we need to know what God asks of us.
Take a few minutes and write down some of your favorite Scripture passages. After you have written those out, set to work on memorizing them. Even one verse a week is great! As you hide God’s Word in your heart you will become who He designed you to be because you’ll know what He desires for you and your life!
