WE HAVE ALL EXPERIENCED THAT “ALONE” EMOTION AND IT CAN BE VERY OVERWHELMING.
Today I want to give you a different perspective on that emotion.
I remember when I was a youth pastor in Penn. many years ago (28 years ago….ahhhhhh) my apartment was about 20 miles from the church. My apartment was on the second floor and there were only two windows. There was a window in the bedroom and on the opposite side of the apartment there was a window in the kitchen. In the middle was my living room where I had a brown sectional couch and a television (I had a TV but no cable so it was never turned on). I came home from the church one day and sat on my couch and felt sooooo alone. It was like waves of sadness and the sense that nobody was there. It was intense for a little bit and then the Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me to turn that alone sensation into a driving passion for more of Jesus. Instead of allowing myself to be consumed by that emotion I turned it around and every single time I felt that come on me I would spend MORE time with JESUS! After a bit of time that aloneness became one of my greatest blessings. My relationship with Christ exploded! My time with Jesus increased and I realized that His Word is true and that we are never alone!
Deut. 31:6, So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.
Heb 13:5b, for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” AMP
Matt 28:20b, and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” AMP
TURN THAT FEELING OF ALONENESS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE AND SPEND SO MUCH TIME WITH JESUS THAT IT IS NOT A BAD FEELING BUT A FEELING THAT ENHANCES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.
YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!!!!!
