Are you comfortable when alone ? Some of us enjoy our own company, while others will put up with the company of anyone, even boring, obnoxious people, just to avoid being alone. The reasons for these differences are complex.
A follower of Jesus is never alone. The Lord tells us this in Matthew 28:20. ‘ I am with you always ‘.
Whether or not we are aware of him, the Lord is with us. When we attempt to escape from him, he pursues us. We are his beloved.
We had a snowstorm a few nights ago. My husband was at the clinic. It was dark, and snow and ice had covered the windows.
I was alone, and yet I was strongly aware that I was not alone, for I keenly sensed God’s presence with me in the midst of this cold dark evening.
Let us pray that the Lord will give us all an increasing awareness that He is always with us.
His eye is on the sparrow, and all of the lives of his beloved concern him deeply.
