We know God is our Provider but this caught me by surprise. I woke up at the middle of the night and as often I could not sleep. I try to read the Bible and pray. Lately the game of chess keeps coming back to my mind,so I checked the internet to see what the web says about it. I came across a ten year old girl beating a GM(grand master), I played her game and I could not guess her moves yet they are beautiful moves. I am retired here in America and sometimes I miss the activities of work because everybody seems to be doing something with a purpose or duty. Weekend is still some days away for me to see my grand daughter and brethren in the church.
I am thinking of visiting my country of birth but I am concern about my health. Then I wished I have a friend that is always by my side. Yes Jesus is our friend, but we can not see Him but we sense His presence by faith.Perhaps it is not a sin to wish for a human friend who is always around.
I went back to the couch to sleep ( I did not want to go to bed because I will wake up my wife who still goes to work).As I lay in the couch, the words from the Bible came to me where God says : It is not good for man to be alone, I will make him a helpmeet. God was referring to the woman for man. Then I realized that my wife is the friend God intended for me.
Often I remember my wife as a wife who seems to have different taste than me but yet she is always there. We may not agree on everything but she probably put up with me on a lot of things.
Yes my wife is who God gave to me as a partner a friend too, A friend that I always wanted but never realized till now.
Yes God provides even though sometimes we are blind but now I see.
So husbands , have we thank God for our wives ? For those who may have lost their loved ones , not to worry, God is still there and here. Jesus is still our Friend and waiting Friend.
