Letter To My Husband: I Will Be The One In Battle This Time

Dear Husband,

As I sit here and write to you, we have been apart for 7 weeks and 3 days. Never did I see separation when I thought of our future. I was devastated the day that you left. I questioned God. I begged. I pleaded. I sought answers. Nothing satisfied my mind or heart. As I have been drawing close to God, I have been praying for you. I know that you’re heart is blocked right now and your mind is full of images of war. You can’t see me. You can’t see our family. I don’t really think you can see our children either. I have come to understand that it isn’t our fault, but it isn’t yours either. I want you to know that I am here, and I will be here for as long as it takes. I will be praying for you, believing for you, fighting for you, interceding for you because you are my other half. God made you for me, and God made me for you. He does not intend for you to live with an anxious mind and heart. He does not intend for you to carry the burden of war all the days of your life, and he does not intend for us to live without you. So, it is my promise today to seek God in all things, to trust Him in all things, and to have laser focus on the tiny light at the end of this long tunnel because I can see it. I know you can’t right now, but I can see our future. I will not let go on days when you give me no hope. I will be fighting for us through prayer. I will be the one in battle this time, and with God, we will not lose. You are my love, my best friend, the father of my children, and I will not leave you behind. I Corinthians 13:7, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” I am yours and you are mine. I love you.

Psalm 130:5, “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.”

Love,

Your Wife
