Our first and most important relationship must be with Jesus.
Today’s song is written in the context of a man to his future wife. While focused in that context, such as, “Is she waiting for me?”, “Is she looking at the moon I’m looking at right now?”; “Have I met the one God has planned for me?”, “Does God’s plan for my life include sharing my love of God as one?”, the song is also a point of reflection for married couples as they look back in amazement at how God assembled the circumstances of life for them to meet and become one in Him.
Song lyrics: I’ve been wishing, I’ve been waiting, I’ve been hoping and praying that you’re out there somewhere on this earth. Someday I’ll meet you face-to-face, but for tonight I have some things I wanna say. Maybe you are feeling broken but I know you’re beautiful, and the God Who loves us both is gonna make you whole. And while you're waiting just for me, I'll do my bеst so I can be the future husband that my futurе wife deserves. Dear future wife, I’ve gotta tell you I’m still working on my life. I’m still trying, I’m still learning and this song is my confession that I’m nowhere near perfection, but the God who loves us both is gonna make me whole. And on that day I finally see you dressed in white, I know that we will say that all the waiting was worth it 'cause that moment is so perfect when the God who loves us both makes us one.
Mark 10:6-9 – “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. 9What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Ephesians 5:33 - “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” Isaiah 54:5 - “For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.” Song of Solomon 8:6-7 –“Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. 7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned."
Whether you’re looking for that future wife OR husband, be assured God has created someone just for you. While you’re in-the-waiting, remember that your first and most important relationship must be with Jesus. Pray and ask Him to bring your special someone (or thank Him for them). And remember, if already married, to keep Jesus at the center of your marriage, making your union exponentially stronger. It’s never too late to invite Jesus into your heart or marital trinity.
