…for there was not found a helper fit for him.
To share the burden of the work that needed to be done. To care for each other with meals, cleaning, housing. To ease loneliness. To create, as God creates, humans to fill the earth. To talk and process their daily thoughts. To encourage and support.
There are many reasons of why Adam needed a helpmeet, but since death, I have discovered the main reason I needed a partner… to show me God’s love in a tangible form.
…it is not good that man should be alone.
Adam had God daily, and I imagine that their love was mutual and expressive and complete. So maybe Adam needed a helpmeet for all the other reasons. But I don’t have God in a tangible way, for daily walks and hugs and discussions and smiles and encouragement. Yes, I do have Spirit with me, and Spirit has supported and sustained me through death.
But a human partner brings tangible, expressed love that can truly re-present God’s love for us. I am thankful I had this experience. I sorely miss this tangible re-presentation of God. I know God loves me… and you. But there is something so special in having that love hug you, speak sweet words, and stand by your side.
God, my sole helper now, please, help me.
