For your Maker is your Husband, The LORD of Hosts is His Name; and your Redeemer is The Holy One of Israel; He is called The God of the Whole Earth. ~ Isa. 54:5
This morning I responded to Debbie Greathead's FB post about her daughter, who died years ago. As I wrote out my comment, I was overshadowed by Holy Spirit in remembering the truly astonishing things God, The LORD of Hosts, has done in my life If I were to write all the stories out, the book would be so thick that no one would want to read it. It would be, without a doubt, a "NeverEnding Story".
Husband and Father are the two of the most significant relationships in a woman's life. And I have the two rolled into One.
I was overcome with the truth that now that I am a woman doing life solo, I am certainly not alone. I HAVE a Husband. The Holy One of Israel walks beside me in this life.
Since marriage retirement, my emotions over wanting the companionship of a man have been of a boat tossed about on the sea describing double-mindedness as in the Book of James. I've had so much sea sickness from my fickleness that I've cried out to Abba to show me the truth of my heart's desires, for only He knows the true intents of our hearts.
And this morning, He did just that as I wrote out my comment on her page. I realized that I truly do not want a human man because if I did, my affections and time would have to be divided. Plus, no man could possibly meet my love needs like My LORD does.
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for showing the truth of my heart. Thank You, My Abba, My Husband. Oh, what a blessed woman I am. I love You!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
