About when you can't live alone… Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (NIV) We all need others. We all have times when we feel forsaken. We all have times in our lives when we feel weak in loneliness. We all have times in our lives when being alone is the worst time of all. What we fail to see during these times is how really strong we are. What we fail to see in times of hurt and loneliness is how God is with us no matter what our circumstances might be. God is in every moment of our hurt. God is in every moment of our trauma. God is every moment of our tragedy. Inevitably, we all ask why God does not stop or fix the lonely times. What we must remember is the lonely times are not brought upon us by God but by Satan. For with God and with His love, all the lonely times, all the trauma, all the tragedy, all the hurt, all the tears, and all the grief will be washed away and be made as if they never were. We indeed need others in the dark and lonely times, but we need God even more. In others, we can be hurt and disappointed, but in God there is no hurt and never any disappointment. When you think you cannot live alone, what you must remember is you have never been alone because God has always been with you. You might not like being alone. You might ache for the companionship and friendship of others, but in Christ and in His love you can find peace and comfort beyond any peace and comfort another person can bring you. And when you find His peace and comfort, you can then bring His peace and comfort to another person. Then, in miraculous ways we cannot often explain, when we bring His peace and comfort to another person we are not alone any more.
