Behold...

Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something that isn't easy to deal with. 

What is it?

Being alone.

Being alone, isn't easy.  Not at any time, for anyone who is basically alone, here on earth.

I know someone whose spouse died, just a few weeks ago.

It isn't easy losing someone you love.  And, grief will affect you.

Someone else I know had a truly serious problem.  The family totally fell apart.

Years earlier, a daughter was kidnapped.  After being missing for several years, she finally escaped where she had been held.

Did she escape alone?  No.  She had a child.

Even though she had been gone from her family for years, I heard that she wasn't happy that she had not been found. 

The family totally fell apart.

And, the mom has been suffering for many years.  Not just from being partially-disabled.  But, also due to what happened to her family. 

Yes, she is feeling grief, also.

I must admit, my heart breaks for these people.

I realize that their lives are such that they are feeling alone, in a human way.

Yes, I know that they are truly not alone.  Nor, is anyone else. 

Just as we read, in John 16:32-33, "Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Jesus spoke those two (2) Bible verses. 

He made it clear that He was not alone, because the Father was with Him.  Just as He is, with us.

He spoke those words that we might have peace.

As He said, in the world, ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Jesus told us this, so that we could understand that when we look to our Lord, we are truly the same. 

We are truly not alone.  Even though we may feel like this in a human way.

We will have tribulation.  Trials in our life may not be easy, but we need to be of good cheer, for He overcame the world.

Just as we will... as we look to Him.

My friend, please... pray for all who are suffering.  Especially, at this time of year, when life seems to focus on family.

Thank you.  May God bless you.


Until next time...
