When You Find Gold

 
If you ever meet a man who:

            Says
he misses your nose

            Offers
to help repair fence . . . for free

            Takes
responsibility for your time and relationship

            Enjoys
your family

            Tells
you that you are beautiful—flaws and all

            Talks
through conflict

            Chooses
to forgive and forget

            Laughs
at your jokes

            Tolerates
your (adorable) cat

            Speaks
truth into your life with simplicity and love

            Wants
you to voice your thoughts

            Researches
your unanswered questions

            Speaks
sincerely of your future

            Admits
when he does not know

            Leads
you closer to the Lord

Pray for
that man. Encourage and bless his efforts. Support his dreams. Practice a thankful
heart. Love him; respect him; choose him.
Above all, realize the treasure you have been given and hold it in high esteem.

He may be
different than what you had imagined. He may not be a polished speaker, a
Charles Spurgin, or a hardy Anabaptist. But if he is a man of God he will be a reflection
of Christ—a leader with a gentle, meek heart—a man who will lead you to fulfill
your calling as a godly woman.

Wait for
him, dear sisters, for he is worth the wait; when he appears hold onto him realizing the gold he is.

  1. If there is such a man out there in the world for me, I’ll do my best to take very good care of him!! 🙂
