You need never feel lonely again. Your God is closer to you than you dare believe. He is not sitting up in heaven at the control panel…he is intimately close to you. Reflect back on the worst situations you endured. Imagine if everyday was like those horrific days. They weren’t and aren’t because He is with us…. protecting and extending mercy. He gave up so much to being a God in heaven to a frail, weak, human baby on Earth…. endured so much trying to teach us, being mocked, ridiculed, tortured, and killed, and enduring extreme pain of separation from His father who He was intimately connected to for a zillion years. He went thru all this just to relate closely with us. Imagine you are a kid again in a dark, spooky house….filled with danger…you are frightened and know and feel totally alone. Then the lights come on and you see the bravest powerful warrior and the most loving protector both on each side of you. Imagine how wonderful, safe, protected, at peace, hopeful, and excited you would feel. Quick, flick on the light in your head, get out of the deceitful darkness and see who really is at you side….now and forever. (see Spiritual Basics link below – Salvation)
Today try and be mindful of the direct connection and distinction between loneliness and lack of awareness of how close God is to you.
I come to you to thank You for Your mercy and grace. I deeply desire to experience Your closeness and presence in my life. When I am aware of your nearness I am not lonely…I feel peaceful and content. When I fail to recognize you I feel frightened, vulnerable and lonely. Let my feelings of loneliness be a constant reminder that I need to seek Your face…and to know that the only think I should fear is losing my connection with You. I come to You Lord with my ever-so-human emptiness…fill me with Your divine presence. Fill me with life to the fullest. In Christ’s name, AMEN.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever,
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
John 14:16, 26
