Are you Alone?

Loneliness 2

Are there days that you feel as though you are alone sitting in the middle of the ocean on an uninhabited island?

Then again, how many of us would give anything to go there right now!? But that is not the point…..

Have you ever been in the middle of a large crowd and felt more alone than if you were really in the middle of that ocean?

We have Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, text messages and instant communication that far exceeds anything we ever thought possible.

And yet, we often feel alone.

social media

Why is that? Better yet, are we ever alone? Have we created our own environment of loneliness?

I am as guilty as the next guy with my cell phone and accessing all the communication possibilities within my grasp. My husband is not interested in any of those things, in fact as he says, he has a “dumb phone”…flip phone for that guy!

He makes a valid point.

It is much easier to access communication and relationships in that fashion. We can say what we want to say, but those verbal cues are missing. Which can be good….or bad.

It is so interesting that the very mode of communication that we seek within social media is available to us 24/7 and has been for years…our communication with the Father.

“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

He gets the non verbal cues, listens when we feel alone, knows when we are hurting, and we can access Him at any time of the morning, noon or night. He will never leave nor forsake you.

That’s communication I understand, although admittedly…..sometimes take for granted.

We must always remember that we truly never alone…HE is always with us.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
