“Give thanks to the Lord of lords. His love continues forever.” Psalm 136:3 (NCV)
I feel sad every Valentines day, because 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 there children, because I would of loved to have been a father.
There are days when I ask the Lord, “Why, cant 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 the spare me the pain of a broken marriage. After all there are a lot of broken marriages these days. It has happened to my brother’s and sisters. Maybe, I am better off without a woman because its hard to have successful marriage in this world because of our sin nature.
It pains me to say this but, I really don’t need to have a wife or a child, all I need is Jesus after all he’s my Valentine. 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 a act of real love. Jesus showed me more love than any woman could offer
