I want to start our journey by reminding you, and myself by default, that we are not in this alone. We are not fighting our daily battles without anyone by our side. I cannot attest to your life structure – I cannot guarantee you have friends, or a boyfriend or husband, or even any family to speak of. However, my statement still holds true:
Right now, it might feel that way. I know, I really do understand, and even though I wholeheartedly believe this to be true, I still sometimes doubt myself. I would like to show you how you are not alone. I am not one to believe something someone says to me unless they can back it up.
Yes, I am about to back myself up with scripture and you may not believe the bible to be an absolute truth, but, please, at least give these passages some thought. [Another day, we can tackle the realness of the bible itself, but first I want you to believe in YOU.]
The scripture repeats over and over again, just how close He is to us; how much He wants to take our burdens away; and how He will always be there for us. He is even there for us when everyone else has turned away.
These verses are in no particular order. They are each clickable to move you to a website to be able to read them in the context they were intended.
I have no intentions to mislead you. So please, research further. Dive in. I dare you.
These are verses I turn to when I feel alone. Then I pray. I ask to feel His presence all around me; to have the emptiness dissipate. And you know, when I actually remember to react by seeking God in my loneliness; I don’t feel alone anymore.
