God's Word contains a special promise to those who take Him up on His offer to be their heavenly Husband. His promise is that no matter how lonely you may feel, He will fill up your heart and your home with His presence. 

In Psalms 68:6 we are told: "God makes a home for the lonely" (NASB). 

Did you catch that? It is His comforting presence that warms up your house and makes it a home. It is His sweet presence that greets you as you walk through the door at the end of the day. It is His calming presence that sings over you, allowing you to sleep at night. Now that's the kind of home that any woman would want...a home in which she no longer feels alone.
