An Open Letter to My Future Wife

To My Future Wife,

I penned this letter now instead of later because I want to thank God in advance for you. I already know you’re going to be an amazing woman. You’re going to be exactly what I prayed for. And by the time I meet you, I’m going to be everything you need me to be. So, whoever you are, wherever you are, here’s an open letter I want to send to you, for all to see. You will be a testimony of my patience. I hope that your heart is open to receive these words.

I know that you’re probably in another situation now. Maybe you’re trying to work things out with the guy you’re with. Maybe your heart is healing from the terrible breakup, a relationship you invested a great deal of your time and energy in. Perhaps there are some other personal issues going on in your life that are preventing you from walking into mine. Maybe we just haven’t met. Whatever’s going on in your life, there’s no rush. God’s timing is perfect. We will grace each other’s eyes and touch each other’s heart at the right time We will enjoy plenty of days and evenings together, whether conversing about life, laughing about something silly, or doing something we both enjoy.

I want you to know that wherever you are in life, I’m praying for you to experience wholeness. I want you to be complete and happy, and full of joy before you meet me. I’m going to look at you as a complement to my life—only to add to it, never to subtract from it.

You’re not the only one who’s being prepared for marriage. While I’m waiting on you, God is shaping me into the man he wants me to be for you: A protector and a provider, a great communicator, and a spiritual leader. He also wants me to be a great lover, a man who can make love to the deepest parts of you, and who can also be intimate without physical touch. He’s molding me into a man who’s transparent, and vulnerable—vulnerable enough to accept you in my life without the reservation that comes from the fear of being hurt. He’s building my trust in Him, so I can fully trust you, my love. My heart. My blessing.

I want to end this letter by saying this: I look forward to developing a wonderful friendship with you—one that’s based on open and honest communication, unyielding trust, respect and adoration for each other. I want us to have a prayer life, because it’s going to draw us closer together and open our eyes to see the God in each other, for our intimate relationship with him will prove to be enriching to our souls, and to us, as a whole. I look forward to learning everything about you. I want to know the woman behind closed doors that many seldom see. I want to know what’s inside your heart, because that’s where your true treasure lies. I want to know what’s in your spirit, because that’s where your true beauty lies. I want to know you before I propose to you. I want to find absolute security in you before I ask, “Will you?” and before you say, “I do.”

Until we cross paths, don’t rush love. We’ll find each other soon. I know it. I can feel it. I’ll see you soon.


Yours Truly,


David Bradshaw

        That was beautiful beyond inexplicable… You poured your heart out to a woman that you have not meet, but you know God has already created with you in mind. I hope that when yo find her it is so much more than your heart will, can, and has ever imagined. As you continue to grow in the Lord I will pray that your future Mrs. Is happy and content as you asked that in that given time you will meet each other in the right moment.

        Stay true to your love,

    I pray you will find her… The ONE you’ve been praying and waiting for. I also pray that you will not be distracted by an imitator.

    Lovely! I pray she is all you have been seeking for and more. It’s nothing like having someone who is down for you no matter what. Loving without conditions is a powerful thing.

    It’s funny that one of my proclamation for 2014 is to receive unconditional nonforceable love that is sent by God. Thank you for sharing. Your lady in waiting will receive a special blessing from you when she arrives #love

    This is beautiful!!! It’s like you took the words right out of my mouth and heart… In the bible it says, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD”. I must say that you are well on your way!!!!

    If you don’t mind, I want to post this on my FB page to help inspire someone.

    Absolutely breathtaking. Sounds a bit like my thoughts to myself. Continue pressing on, God will definitely allow great things to happen for you!

    Words that stuck out for me as I read this beautiful letter to your future wife “I want to know what’s inside your heart, because that’s where your true treasure lies. I want to know what’s in your spirit, because that’s where your true beauty lies. I want to know you before I propose to you” That’s probably the best line I read from you. You’re attracted to her from the inside, her heart & her spirit is really the essence of who she is, and if that’s the side you want to see, and also the person you want to love and spend the rest of your life with, then you’re a one hell of a guy who has a heart of gold.

    Your open letter is just beautiful! I have a similar prayer for my future husband. Your letter is very encouraging! Thank you so much for sharing this! May God continue to bless and keep you while he’s working behind the scenes to give you your hearts desire!

      Thank you for reading my Open Letter. Wrote from no other place but the heart.

      I also believe God is working on me. I can feel it. I know it.

      I pray God is working on your heart desires too.

      Stay encouraged 🙂
