"For he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
What a promise!
Life can be a lonely place at times. Friendships and relationships grow cold, we lose people through death and illness. Even in a world full of so many people we can still feel lonely.
Many people try to reconnect by losing their smart devices, by tackling low self esteem or by joining social groups that keep them busy. Although all of these things help, it can often be difficult to overcome the unstoppable wave of isolation that continues to wash over us
It doesn’t get any better when people often tell you that'll they'll always be there and they say it with the best of intentions. They mean what they say but it doesn't always happen. Circumstances change and people change, what they once said somehow gets forgotten when life takes over. The inconsistency of others makes the scars deeper than ever.
Thankfully, and amazingly we have a clear promise from our Heavenly Father. It is true that He never leaves us. He sees everything and knows everything you're feeling. He understands, When his disciples left him in the garden as he prayed or when he felt completely forsaken on the cross, we know that Jesus can not only empathise with us but sympathise, he’s been there before us.
And though he’s been alone too, we can be sure because of that, he is more than willing and able to wrap His arms around you and comfort you. He won't ever leave you, no matter how alone you may feel He's always there.
Our Heavenly Father always cares. He loves you more than anyone ever could. We can always turn to Him. His words are true and steadfast, why not turn to him today?
