Sometimes you feel all alone in your thoughts and concerns.
How do I know this? — because I feel all alone sometimes, too.
My husband and I adopted a child who experienced bipolar disorder from the very early age of eighteen months. It was back when doctors thought it was impossible for children to have a mental illness.
No one understood; I felt all alone. The good news is that my alone-ness caused me to reach out to Jesus.
You see, sometimes we don’t know we need Jesus until He is all we’ve got. Medical help came for my little girl much later — at age seventeen. Jesus was all I had during those desperate years.
Even those closest to me didn’t understand my pain, my struggle. In their presence, I still felt alone. Their words were empty, like sounding brass echoing off the walls. Jesus was the only One who understood and I was not alone!
Where do you go when you feel alone?
When we feel alone, we need to get alone — alone with God, reaching out to Him. He is the one person who understands, empathizes, heals, encourages, and lifts us out of our alone-ness.
He has promised us that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Deut 31:6).
Do you have a quiet, alone place, where you can seek the One who understands? — a place where you can reach Him? He is the only One who can meet your need.
You’re not alone!
