When feeling alone I become inspired by my parents and many others that chose to serve Christ. My parents were young when they married and came from families where some siblings chose not to serve God.
Because they did not agee with the lifestyle that many siblings were living, they often were left out of many activities. This often made them feel alone. Other Christians that associated with my parents often did not live according to Bible beliefs in some areas–this too made them feel alone or different.
They continued to live according to what they knew to be true. This they explained is, “living by faith.”
Often when feeling different and alone, I was reminded that I was never alone. God was always watching, angels were constantly guarding me and Jesus gives us the power to feel wanted and loved through His sacrifice.
Now that I am older, I often wonder how hard it was for my parents to give us this advice when feeling so alone through the attitude or action of church members, coworkers, extended family, life events and sometimes themselves.
Jesus truly is our fortress and deliverer. (Isaiah 91)
Hebrews 13:5 says, “For he hath said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.'”
