Widows Are Special To God

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
James 1:27 (NIV)

It is a comforting thing in life to know that widows are special to our Lord and Saviour.

In Psalms 68:5 it says, “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”

It is a beautiful feeling in life to know that in Psalm 146:9, “The Lord watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow…”

To think and to know that our children will have the best father one could want, and that we as widows, will be cared for, is indeed a blessing.

Prayer
Dear Lord, how wonderful to be embraced in your loving care.   We are special to you and know that whatever anxieties we may have will be in your care.
Amen
