This week : LonelyReady?
The word itself brings a shadow, a chill. A sadness that feels hollow and yet, deep. It brings with it questions of "am I doing enough?" "Is it my fault?" and "Why am I different?" Yet sometimes there is a need to feel this pull of sadness. Sometimes it is good to remember that we are never truly alone. That human emotion that we were created with, is not ours to cling to. It is simply a signpost to show us the way to the One who alleviates all loneliness. The One who loves so deeply that any darkness or loneliness is cast out.
Imagine the joy we will have when we see Him face to face, know as we are known, never again to feel lonely. Never again to know the pain of disconnect or heartache. What a glorious day that will be!
