“Because of the loudness of my groaning my bones cling to my flesh. I resemble a pelican of the wilderness; I have become like an owl of the waste places.” (Psalm 102:5-6)
There are times when one feels all alone. You are never alone, but sometimes you feel that way, even if in the midst of a crowd. The Lord is always with you. He watches over your going out and your coming in. Be comforted by the truth of His constant presence. Know that He who created you has said that you are of great worth. Be in His presence and know His goodness.
Lord, in those times where I feel what is not true, comfort me with Your Spirit that I may be guided into the loving relationship that You have made possible by grace. Guide me according to Your goodness to live into the life to which You have called me. Guide me now and always to live according to the truth of Your Word that I may, even in times where I feel alone, grow into the likeness of Christ.
Lord Jesus, there are many times where you went into the wilderness to “be alone,” yet, with the Father and the Holy Spirit You are never alone. Teach me to be like You that when I am overwhelmed with this world’s chaos I may never mistake the abandonment I feel in this world with the truth that I am never alone. Guide me to persevere in the truth of Your presence. Amen.
