Not Alone

One Line Wisdom:
·         Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the heck alone.
·         If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
·         Always remember that you’re unique. Just like everyone else.
·         Hedgehogs – why can’t they just share the hedge?
·         I don’t have a solution but I admire the problem.
Let’s go all the way back to the beginning of humanity.  God created them, male and female, is what Genesis teaches.  The other thing, very obvious, is that this male and female lived with God, their creator.  The three spent time together in the garden.  Discussing things face to face.  Enjoying each other’s company face to face.  Then sin creeped into camp. 
From here on out we have skewed images and understandings of what it means to be human.  The devil has put thoughts in our brains that have become “law” to us, when they are really lies.  We’ve believed them through thousands of years and they’ve just become part of our nature.
As I write this, there is a teenager who is lost at sea in the southern Indian Ocean.  Abby Sunderland, 16 years old, is breaking all sorts of age related sailing records.  She’s by herself.  Well, that’s what we’re told.  Her boat was tossed by 30 foot waves and damaged to the point where she needed to put out “distress signals.”  The first reports were filled with fear.  Then a rescue plane made radio contact with the brave teen late yesterday (Thursday evening).
Abby seems to be on top of her game.  She knows what she’s doing.  And low and behold, she’s a Christian.  Does she think she’s alone?  I’m anxiously awaiting her interview after the rescue.  There are boats on the way and should be to her within the day.  I’m nearly positive she’s going to say she was never alone….just a guess on my part though.
Being lonely is a part of humanity.  Being by yourself is part of humanity.  But the stinking Devil has created this concept that we are “alone” if we’re lonely or physically by ourselves.  It’s completely not true.  If we have Jesus, we’re never alone.  The Holy Spirit is with us.  When we have the Holy Spirit with us, we’re part of a family, the church.  In this church, this family of God, we’re connected by spiritual gifts and works and prayers.  We’re linked whether we like it or not. J  I’m assuming that if we really understood, we’d always like it though.
So, the simple lesson here is that we need to let reality sink in a bit more.  We need to focus and live the Truth a little more.  Some of us do this very well.  Some of us need more help.  And some of us really struggle with our alone, single, or lonely times.  Some of us have a weak spot that Satan knows very well.  BUT…Jesus knows us better…He created us.  That’s Truth.  He’s always with us.  That’s Truth.  We are never ever, ever alone.  That’s Truth.  Satan lies.  That’s the Truth.  We are part of a family.  That’s Truth.  We have significance.  That’s truth.  We are instrumental to his church.  That’s Truth.  We are a part of His Kingdom.  That’s truth.
