No Woman for Me
“Give thanks to the Lord of Lords. His love continues forever.” Psalm 136:3 (NCV)
I am in my fifties, and I have never found someone to love or marry. At this time, it does not look like that will ever happen.
I also feel sad when I am in church and see moms and dads with their children because I would have loved to have been a father.
There are days when I ask the Lord, “Why, can’t I be a husband or father? Father God, am I such a bad person that I am unlovable or can’t be loved?”
Maybe, the Lord loves me so much he wants to spare me the pain of a broken marriage. After all, there are a lot of broken marriages these days. It has happened to my brothers and sisters. Maybe, I am better off without a woman because it’s hard to have a successful marriage in this world because of our sin nature.
It pains me to say this, but, I don’t need to have a wife or a child.
All I really need is Jesus. I need to remember He loved me so much that he let Himself be whipped, nailed and abandoned by God the Father.
As a result, I can have eternal life.
To be beaten up, in my place so I can spend eternity in Heaven is an act of real love.
Jesus showed me more love than any woman could offer.
