YOU ARE NOT ALONE
“Then the eleven disciples went away into
into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Matthew 28:16-20 KJV
Have you ever felt all alone? I really was all alone until I repented of my sins, asked God to forgive me and invited Jesus into my heart on August 14, 1980. I have not been alone since that wonderful day. Jesus has never left me, not even for a minute even when I was discouraged and felt all alone.
Jesus has promised us that He will never leave us. Our precious Saviour doesn’t say anything He doesn’t mean. We can trust Him to be with us when we’re on the mountain top or in the valley of discouragement. What a precious loving Saviour we are privileged to know. He loves us so much He died for us.
Ludie Carrington Day Pickett wrote one of my favorite hymns “Never Alone”. “When in affliction’s valley I tread the road of care, My Savior helps me carry the cross so heavy to bear; Though all around me is darkness, earthly joys all flown; My Savior whispers His promise, never to leave me alone!”
No matter how alone you may feel at times, you are not alone. If you are hurting, tell Jesus. His arms are open and He is waiting for you. He will carry you through all the dark valleys in your life and set you once again on the mountain top of happiness.
