Loneliness is the greatest of demons. No matter what you do, what you have, where your at in life- there is no greater emptiness than the depression of being alone. What are our greatest fears? They all have the foundation of being left. I was listening to Rush Limbaugh the other morning, a woman called in, concerned for her husband. He had woken her up in the middle of the night, terrified cause if he was to lose his job he was afraid he would lose her. We are all afraid of being alone. No amount of money, no amount of materials or activities will ever conquer the need for others. The hardest cross to bear is to picture our lives with all those whom we love not to exist. God did not make man to be left alone. There has always been a fellowship. Before earth was created God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit were having a grand ole’ time all together- there has always been a relationship. If the cornerstone of all life is based off a relationship- no wonder we crave them.
Yet what happens when we are left alone? I know Jesus is my Friend, my Comforter, My Savior- but that doesn’t mean the loneliness disappears. That doesn’t mean that the feelings, desires and needs I have as human cease. So now what? I believe there is a purpose for everything and in everything- what is the purpose in this??

And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. (Gen. 32:24)

I wrestle with myself. I have been brought here to be left to wrestle with a man, that man is me.

I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. (Gen 32:26)

  1. Laura you dispaly wisdom that is beyond your years. It is a product of your abandon to Christ. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

    An encouraging book to read is, Divine Romance by Gene Edwards. If and when you get a chance, check it out!
