The God of old is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. —Deuteronomy 33:27
During my fifty-seven years as a single woman, I had times of loneliness and longing for deeper companionship. But I also experienced sweet contentment, joy, and fruitfulness as I learned to trust God to direct my life, meet my needs, and walk with me through challenges. Now that I’m married, I know that Christ—not my husband—is my highest good, my unfailing hope, and that I can trust Him with whatever this chapter of my life may hold.
You may have unfulfilled longings for a mate— or find yourself in a troubled marriage where you feel alone. I can’t promise God will change your situation. But I can assure you that you are deeply loved, with a love that never fails. The everlasting arms of God are supporting and surrounding you, carrying and caring for you.
Do you long for a friend who knows and desires you? In Christ, you have the dearest Friend a soul could have, one who walks with you today and will be yours for all of eternity.
Make it Personal
Think about the ways God has provided for you and how He’s worked in your life, then thank Him for His unfailing love.
