It’s A Couple’s World!

In Genesis 2:18 the Lord said, “It is not good for man to live alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” This principle began with creation. God knew that his creation, if left to himself would be incomplete.

There are many of us who have lost our companions by death or divorce. Obviously death had no recourse and divorce is generally impossible to undo.

When we observe our daily walk, you see the interaction of men and women in various activities. I was eating alone at the Cracker Barrel yesterday and couldn’t help but notice the number of retired couples enjoying their meal together. Many were talking privately and some were talking with other couples. Their enjoyment was quite obvious and readily noticeable to us who are alone. I enjoyed observing these exchanges yet it made me sad to be unable to participate.

My divorce was not “my divorce.” Remaining single or unattached is my choice. It is not one I would impose on others. So I’m caught in a dilemma regarding my ability to move on with my life. I still have feelings for my ex-wife and will continue to be faithful even under these circumstances. Thank goodness for family and grandchildren who “take up the slack” and keep us going. Jesus is still the ultimate answer and serving him helps keep me from feeling sorry for myself all the time.

I’d like to encourage you to watch for opportunities to encourage men and women who are by themselves. It really is a “couple’s world.”
