Loneliness December 8, 2015

A university student said that taking drugs “taught me to be alone- completely alone.” She had taken a trip with some friends, but found herself terribly alone, cut off from others by impenetrable walls of private experience. Someone has said that “loneliness is today’s great soul sickness.” Affluent couples shut themselves up in expensive high rise apartments. Poor widows or widowers exist in one barren room in the slums. The party crowd races from one place of entertainment to another. All share a deep sense of alienation, separation and “aloneness”. But into this world of the lonely walks the Son of God. He promised His disciples, when they feared being alone, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” How good to know the One who “sticks closer than a brother.” No,we don’t need to go through life all alone. If we sincerely ask Him, Jesus is willing to give us abundant satisfying life. He is the ultimate and permanent answer to loneliness. That’s a minute of truth!
