Who is your companion?

Most of us like to have some sort of a companion with whom we can share our life. We often want a spouse or a good friend or both who will allow us to unload our feelings or with whom we can share our ideas. Good friends are hard to find; but a solid, committed friendship is the best basis for a long-lasting marriage. 

I’ve lost my wife of fifty-six years in a sudden, tragic death in early November, 2020. However, twenty-two years ago, God gave me a strong premonition that she was going to die first.

I didn’t want her to die first. As a result, I prayed many tearful prayers telling God my honest feelings. Then, he gave me peace to accept his permissive plan. 

Of course, it’s been difficult adjusting to her absence as my companion because she was a master financial and household manager. And I miss sharing my life with her.

However, God has taught me through this difficult experience that he is my only real Companion. He may use a spouse or a good friend to bless us for a while, but they and we are only temporary.

On the other hand, when we have a genuine trust in Jesus as the only Path and Guide to our Creator-God, he is our only permanent Companion in this life and the next one. I invite you to share your thoughts.

Jesus said, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.

No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).”
