Happy birthday to our dear black belter!
Happy birthday to the most talkative person in the world. Kidding! ha ha ha Well, a lot of people know him for being talkative. He really has a lot of things to say. Indeed, when he was asked what gift he wanted God to grant him during a retreat he attended, he asked for knowledge. God really answers prayers! If I have a lot of stories to tell about what God is doing in my life, believe it or not, my husband has a lot more to tell. When he told me everything about his past , I’ve seen how God orchestrated everything in his life so he can be in the place where he is right now. I then realized how the Lord really loves him. I know that in the future, it will be a great testimony for His glory.
To my handsome husband, thank you so much for all your sacrifices for our family. I’m sorry for the times I’ve hurt you. I know God has wonderful plans for you. I’m excited to see what He is going to do in your life. Always remember that Josh and I are always here for you. God knows how much we love you. You may have not pursued your dream to be a black belter when you were young, but for us you will always be our great fighter! (Just don’t teach Josh to use those Taekwondo moves to me or else).
Lastly, this is my prayer for you. I found this prayer online and it is really beautiful.
“Lord may He love you with all his heart, mind and strength. I pray he would delight in Your law and that You would open his eyes to the truths in Your Word. Guide Him Lord to walk by the strength of Your spirit and keep Him in constant communion with You.
Give him the desire to please You in all things and give him the endurance to run the race You have set before him. May he have wisdom and strength to lead his family in Your ways and continue to help him manage his time well with all the various tasks he needs to take care of in the day.
May he always have an eternal perspective on the gifts You have given us to be used to further Your kingdom and that we would not build treasures on earth but in heaven. Give him a humble spirit and help him to be “quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger.
May he continue to share your goodness and love with his family
and the people surrounding him.
Give him a continuing passion for the lost and keep the truths of the Gospel on the tip of his tongue so he is always ready to give an answer for the hope that is in him.
Keep his eyes and heart and mind pure Lord and help him to have wise and good biblical discernment. May You surround him with other men who love You and will be an encouragement to him in his walk with You.
I thank you Lord for him and pray that I would truly do him good all the days of his life and be a good helper to my husband.
I ask these things in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
