Day 280

HUSBAND

"For your Maker is your husband—

the Lord Almighty is his name."

Isaiah 54:5

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I created you with a vacuum that could only be filled by Me. Earthly relationships, as wonderful as they seem, are but miniatures of the real thing. They can't satisfy all your needs or wishes. I am your husband and long  always to be the first and only real love of your life. I'm planning a trip for My bride that exceeds anything you can even imagine—an eternal honeymoon in heaven!

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, I can never truly be widowed, for You are my husband. You are the protector of my life, and priest of my home. You are a companion, friend, partner, lover, and spiritual leader. Everything I need in a husband, I find in You. Thank You for loving me.

SIMPLE TRUTH

There's no place like His presence.
