Connected but Adrift February 5, 2016

“More Canadians than ever live alone and almost one quarter of them describe themselves as lonely. It is a great irony of our age that we have never been better connected, or more adrift.” Those are the words of Elizabeth Renzetti, in her Globe and Mail article, ‘A Life of Solitude’. Suffering from chronic loneliness can lead to the risk of illness and premature death. The Bible, God’s inspired Word also reveals that God recognizes the perils of loneliness. The Psalmist wrote, “God has set the lonely in families.” But suppose that you find yourself of necessity, living alone. If so, remember that God has promised His children, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” But remember this promise is to those who are part of His family and John tells us how we can become part of God’s family, writing, “As many as received Him, (Jesus) to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name.”
