You Are Not Alone

It’s funny how kids remind you of the simplest of things. My son cried out during the night, waking me up from a deep sleep. I was irritated at first. I love my bed! I got up though. What mother wouldn’t if you heard your child crying?

I clambered out of the bed and stumbled into his room. He was sitting up and grumbled that he felt a bit sick. I comforted him and reassured him that he will be ok. He stuck out his bottom lip and gave such the cutest look (you know the look that Puss in Boots gives in Shrek? It was cuter than that!)

He started crying and said he felt lonely. Lonely? It’s the middle of the night, my son is crying and he feels lonely. I gave him one of his favourite teddies to cuddle and settled him back down. I stroked the bridge of his nose and gently whispered to him that he is never alone. Why? Because God is ALWAYS with him. With this in his mind he smiled, hugged his teddy tightly and gently went back to sleep. My son was at peace again.

Getting back into bed I carried this same thought with me. Me reminding my son that God is with him is just as relevant for me as it is for him. It’s the same for you too! God is with us people. Sometimes we may not feel it, but He is. Just like a favourite teddy bear and a gentle whisper will comfort my son, God is there with us in our midst gently whispering to us…I love you.

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? Psalm 56:3-4

Whether you are going back to work after a holiday, starting a new job, have a new venture, starting back to school again, or even starting a new school…you are not alone.


Something to think about…

Are you facing a new season right now? Are you feeling scared? Hand it over to God and leave it in His hands. He has this…and He has you! You are not alone in what you are going through.

Lord, I am scared for what I am about to face today. You know what my situation is God and I am leaving it in your hands. Take away any feelings of insecurity that I have and help me to deal with whatever comes in my path. Thank you for the promise that you have given to me that you will always be by my side. I know that I am never alone. Amen.

  1. another lovely contribution Lynne. Such a blessing and a comfort – I have friends/relatives who are starting back to jobs at schools and my granddaughter is preparing to go to University. What a tremendous comfort to know that we never face anything alone, we are never truly lonely – because the Lord has promised never to leave us or forsake us. Bless you Lynne – please keep writing! x

    1. Thank you Valerie. Your words mean a lot and I really appreciate you taking the time to read. It’s only now as I look back I can see God with me in my life. I only wish I knew it when I was back at school. I’m hoping that people take hold of this truth as they read what I write.

  2. Lynne, I loved this post! It is such a simple and gentle reminder, but one that is most powerful and needed. It has been a few days that I have been thinking on Romans 8:15, stuck on the preciousness of calling God “Abba, Father.” Here I am a grown woman – a wife, mom, and grandmother – and I still call my dad, “Daddy”. But the depth of love, respect, and dependence that is attached to that one name is profound to me. And we get to call our God, “Abba, Father”. Humbling. Amazing. Mind blowing. Thank you for sharing analogy. Blessings!

    1. Thank you Joanne for your lovely comment. It sounds like you have such a connection with your father, and to know that we can have that same connection with our Heavenly Father is absolutely amazing. Bless you!
