Jesus, our Husband

Jesus, our Husband


As I begin to walk this new, unfamiliar path of widowhood the Lord has reminded me that He has a special place in His heart for aliens, widows, and orphans. Isaiah 54:5a says, “For your husband is your Maker, whose name is the Lord of Hosts.”

He is demonstrating that scripture me in very practical ways. Now I must make decisions not only for daily living. I have to have wisdom for things I know nothing about, like our farm.

At each fork in the road, I stop to listen for Jesus’ direction. Before very long He brings someone across my path who has expertise to help me with each situation.

I have yet to feel lonely. Jesus is as close as the whisper of His name. I do miss my husband, but Jesus is filling that empty space with Himself. I am experiencing my Lord on a deeper level than ever before.

My heart is filled with joy that His word is true. When He says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” He demonstrates it in very practical ways.

  1. Sally. I am so sorry to know that you have suffered this great loss but am so happy to know how Jesus is helping you.

  2. I was reminded of that scripture just last week when someone used the verse right before out of context to be “okay” with one day dating again. And it didn’t settle right until I went straight to the Bible and saw that verse. Thank you

  3. Sally, you ministered to me deeply today. Donna Le just let me know you will be speaking at Wordwrights’ retreat in September. I so look forward to meeting you then, as I am a member of the group.
    My husband graduated to glory last September, just two days before our 30th wedding anniversary. I am learning to cry out to God when grief threatens to drown me.
    Thank you for the scriptures and honest thoughts you share in this blog. Please keep doing what you are doing.

    1. Thanks Lori, for your comment. So sorry to hear of your loss. Sometimes life delivers surprises we would never choose, and yet, He has a plan even then. Continue to keep your eyes on Him, dear sister. He never fails. Look forward to meeting you face-to-face in September at the WordWright Retreat.
