Alone?

Everyone goes through times in life when they feel a little lonely, or wonder where they belong. God designed the family to always be a place of love and acceptance. Maybe you didn’t come from an environment like that, or maybe you’ve been away from your family. Maybe they are no longer around. God still desires to meet that need for family. The Bible says that He is the Father to the fatherless, and He places the solitary in families. God wants to give you a circle of you can trust, who will embrace and accept you.

If you need family today, ask God to meet that need and show you where you belong. Or, maybe you are the one who can open your home and heart to someone who is alone. The point is that God loves family. He designed the family for a purpose. Jesus said in Matthew 12 that those who do God’s will are His family.

Today, if you are part of the family of God, you are never alone! He promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He promises to fill you with His peace and joy, so that you can live as an overcomer all the days of your life!

“God places the solitary in families”¦” 

(Psalm 68:6, NKJV)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for making me a part of Your family. Father, thank You for diminishing my loneliness and being my Father. Thank You for accepting and embracing me always, even when I embarrass You with my sinful behaviour. God, show me how I can reach out and be an example of family in someone else’s life, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

thanks for leaving a comment. I and my family are actually have the dreaded bug so I havent really been replying to any posts as i’m not feel that great – its horrible. It’s hit me like a ton of bricks. Stay safe and keep your distance. God Bless

My newest blog elaborates. Stand firm and have Faith. God knows our expiration date and it’s Him who is in charge, NOT MAN nor any virus which we REBUKE? in Jesus’ name. If I could DIE for anyone at this very moment, I would ?

I am in a wonderful family, but I know how hard it is not to have that, if even for a short time. If you have a warm home and family around you, try to find a way to share that with others you know who are alone.

Older people like me are alone right now because they are self isolating for safety from the virus, it is not easy being separated from your loved ones who are out in the world. Though I am not lonely as Jesus is with me I am missing those who cannot visit as usual and I am forbidden to visit, my daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren I do not know when I will see them again, I pray they will be protected from Corona. I find Psalm 91:6-8 a comfort in these perilous times .

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the calamity that destroys at noon. 7 Though a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, no harm will come near you. 8 You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked
