Lonely?

This entry was originally written and posted in Life with Lynnie (LwL) on blog.com, rather than here on blogspot.com, due to the problems I had posting any entry, here. Now that blogger has this site working properly again, I thought I would copy and repost here, to save you from having to back and forth between sites.

Lonely?

If you’ve been reading recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, you’ll be aware that life hasn’t been easy for me, lately. In fact, for a while.

Still, God provides for me, daily.

I must admit that as my health improves, I am becoming more and more bored with life as it’s been. And, I keep praying that it is God’s will to provide me with total, restorative healing.

Oh, I know… some may think I should be thankful. And, the truth is, I am thankful, even for this trial.

One thing I must say is, that I am truly bored with life.

After all, look at my situation. Being a widow, who lives alone, life can be rather lonely, at times.

Yes, I enjoy a lovely view from my apartment. And, I take advantage of this.

Many times per day, I look outside. Not just to see what the weather is like, but also to give myself a break from watching television. Or reading my Bible, or a book.

When my nurse arrives to clean my partly-opened and infected incision, I’m grateful to see her. It’s nice to hear a voice, and see a face, at least once per day!

If my children and grandchildren weren’t sick, things might be different. But, for now, I just have to relax and enjoy what God has provided me with.

Whenever I find myself feeling lonely, I remind myself that Jesus is with me. Always.

After all, God’s Word tell us in Matthew 28:20, “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

That’s one thing that I will always be grateful for. The fact that Jesus is with me, always; that He never leaves me.

And, He’s with you too, if you are Christian. If you’re not trusting in Jesus Christ, for your salvation, please… do so, today. We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow.


Until next time…
