Remember You Are Never Alone

You are never alone though every fiber of your being says you are. Your problems seem to be great. You may even be the one who caused them. It may your fault that your marriage is falling apart. You may be the reason that the creditors are threatening to repossess everything you own. Or, you may be a victim of circumstances. Your spouse left you and your business had to downsize. It makes very little difference when these problems fall on you. You seem just as alone whether it is your fault or not.

You feel especially alone because you don't seem to have anyone to call on. There is no one who will rescue you. So what do you do?

Remember that you are not alone. You never have been alone. You have Someone you can call. You have Someone who knows your situation. You have Someone who has a solution. It doesn't matter if it is your fault. This Someone will come to you right now if you ask Him.

Remember that you are in His hands. You don't suddenly find yourself in His hands when troubles come. You have always been in His hands. He was never far away. He was with you even when you would not call on Him. He did not interfere but He is willing to take what you have and make something much better if you will let Him.

Remember that He has asked for your problems. He has said that we are to cast them on Him. We are to throw them away from ourselves to Him. He will always catch them. He will take them from you because He cares for you.

Remember His promise toward you. He has plans for you greater than your imagination. Why would you try to work out new plans when you know His plans are always greater than your own? That has been what you were doing. You have been trying to improve on a perfect plan. How has that been working out for you?

Remember what He has already done. He sent His Son for you. He does not have to prove His love toward you again. He has already done so in a way none of us truly understand. If He has so loved us why would He abandon us? If He has not abandoned us, why would He not be with us in our need? If He is in our need, why would He not help? If He helps, why would He not want us to give our problems to Him?

Yes, you are never alone. The first step is to stop acting like it. The next is to rejoice for He is caring for you right now.
