I highly suggest watching these dvds. I'm watching them as part of my school work. One of my favorite speakers is Dr. Marshall Foster.

Surely This Must BeThe One

What are you looking for in a husband? Do you remember the story of when God told Samuel to anoint one of the sons of Jesse to be King of Israel? When Samuel saw Eliab, the firstborn, he was impressed. Seeing that he was tall,mature,and handsome,he thought,"Surely, this must be the one." But the Lord told Samuel, "Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature: because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart" ( 1 Samuel 16:6-7).
It is easy for us to be like Samuel. We look at outward things. We notice someone who is handsome and popular, who sounds impressive, and who seems to be respected by everyone else. We look for Eliabs. But pray, rather, for a man after God's own heart---pray for a David. Pray for a man whose life is devoted to the Lord so that as you give yourself to him, you will be using your life to bring forth fruit that is eternal. Pray for a man who loves you. Pray for a man upon whom God's blessing is evident.
