John 16:32 “Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me.”
Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

There are times in our lives when it seems that everyone around us is moving away from us. Pulling back and creating their own space without us. And lonely hits! We wonder and we cry out “WHY?”. There will be seasons but they will not last. They come and go like the weather, in and out of our lives. Hurt! Fear! Anger! But “WHY?” In those times particularly seek out comfort from the Lord. He will use this time of “Lonely” to strengthen us. To open our eyes to others who may need us. To teach us how to depend on Him more. Don’t curl up and hide away in your lonely! Reach out, He is there with you always.
Lord I am grateful! You are dependable, trustworthy, compassionate, loving and present. Amen!

I have found this to be so true lately in my own life. As I’ve traversed a rocky patch professionally, and, at the same time, have moved, lost a dear family member and have been without my own home for over a year. As this season of my life has continued, I have found that my friends have pulled not in closer to me, but away. Has it just been satan, telling me I’m alone or has it been reality that those closest to me have grown tired of my bellyaching and complaining???
Never will I pull away. You are my “JOY” ever time I get to spend time with you. Thank you for your friendship.
