I encountered this gentleman last weekend while hiking. He’s an elderly man who slowly walked with a cane. He seemed very friendly as he passed by and even complimented my dog. I really don’t know much more about him.
As he was almost out of sight when I wondered….Is he a widower? Does he have family? Has he lived a hard life?
Then I thought…Does he know that he isn’t alone? Alone in life, I mean, not the fact that there is another person and a dog on the same trail.
There are many promises in the bible, all are comforting but I especially gravitate towards the ones that reassure me that I’m never alone.
For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We don’t have to figure everything out. Our God wants us to seek His help. The weight can be lifted off of your back. *sigh of relief*
If you need further convincing, just take a look at this verse in reference to God:
Because His compassions fail not, they are new every morning…
Not only are we not alone but compassion for us is renewed every day. Wow, that’s humbling.
