A really nice man came to my house yesterday and he came to fix my internet. He asked me questions about my internet. He was thinking of moving to BC from Alberta and was looking for good middle schools here. I told him what he was looking for is hard unless he goes to a private school. We talked about schools for a bit. Then he asked me was I the only one who lived in my house and I said yes me and my dog. He said to me why is a nice woman like me was alone.
I told him I’m not alone in my life at all. I have a great job and around lots of people and I have lots of friends and family in my life. I also have the Lord and with Him in your life you are never alone. I’m not sure if he was a believer but he nodded at me. Even though I don’t have a husband in my life or someone else you are never alone with Christ. People come and go but Christ always stays the same yesterday, today and always.
Deuteronomy 31:6 says ” Be strong and courageous and do not be afraid, because the Lord your God goes with you. He will never leave you or forsake you.”
Isaiah 41:10 says ” Fear not for I am with you, so not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my righteous hand.” Being alone to a non Christian person looks a lot different then a believer.
Two of my friends this weekend renewed their vows. It was a beautiful humble experience. I loved their vows that no matter what happens in life how hard marriage can be they will stand together with each other and each one of us who came. They forgave each other for how they had wronged in the marriage. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not Envy, it does not boast it is never proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoice in truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always preserves. LOVE NEVER FAILS. “
I love these verses so much. So don’t ever think because you don’t have that special person in your life that you are alone. We are never alone in Christ. Love never fails.
