Someday My Prince Will Come

When Snow White sings this wishful song, she isn't wishing for a guy to love her & leave her. She's dreaming of a true Prince Charming. He would be a man of character who would never forsake her & who would sweep her off her feet & carry her to happily ever after.

It seems that some of the women of the world today have lost that wistful anticipation of finding Mr. Wonderful. It seems that those women don't believe that their Prince Charming exists. They settle for men who are far less for them, because they don't believe that God could - or would - give them such a man. Or they simply don't believe men like that really exist. I was in that type of situation years ago. I married a man who turned out to be an abusive alcoholic because i was listening to my biological clock & not to my inner voice from God. But wonderful men DO exist outside of fairy tales, because of the power of Christ. I now have that God centered relationship with a wonderful man. My husband may not be perfect, as no human being is, but he is my Prince Charming.

When the Holy Spirit is unleashed in a man, there is a strength in him that is very powerful. (Remember David & Goliath?) These men have a purpose & a passion & a power. But if you didn't have the priority before you married to look for a man of God, you can still pray that God will transform that man you married. Pray, unceasingly, for God to work through you in all you say & all you do to open that man's eyes & heart to what God can do for him & for both of you as a couple. When a man surrenders to the Spirit of Christ, he is filled with a love & a purpose that turns him into a Prince Charming.

But even if a man like this never comes along & even if your husband never surrenders to the power of Christ, there is One who is definitely coming to carry you away, if you have put your trust in Him. Your Prince, your King, is indeed coming to get you.

"Let us rejoice & be glad
and give Him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and His bride has made herself ready."
Revelation 19:7

Do you know who the Lamb is? It is Jesus. Precious Jesus. And you are His beloved bride.
