Never Alone

I heard someone say this about the pandemic, “I wish we had told people to physically distance instead of socially distance.

Doesn’t that basically mean the same thing?

Maybe not.

The context of the comment was to point out the emotional and psychological damage of how isolated people have truly become.

Christians, for every moment of debate, division, social media battle, online chat or just talking around the water cooler (if those still exist), we are missing a great opportunity to tell the world they are never alone.

The enemy surely isn’t wasting any time convincing us that we are.

We need to make sure our attention isn’t so absorbed in headlines and every goofball on tv that we forget about eternity…and who needs to know about it.

In isolation, with no wise counsel, support groups, coffee dates or prayer cover, I’m afraid people will be caught off guard when trials and tribulations come knocking on the door.

Or when their door is abruptly broken down.

How do you deal with that? How do we learn to walk in faith when things are already so hard? When splintered wood is everywhere and there’s a plywood shortage?

We need to remind one another of God’s promises while we are walking, or crawling, through the valley. Choose one person who needs a friendly reminder this week.

It might have to be virtual message or an old-fashioned card in the mail. It might even need to be a Lowe’s gift card. ☺️

I don’t know how God will help you repair your broken door this year, but I do know He promised that if you follow Him, you will never face anything alone. Don’t try to fix everything yourself.

After all, He was a carpenter.


I heard the following song lyrics and Bible verses this morning that seemed perfect for the world right now. Maybe it will encourage someone else, too.

I’ve seen the lightning flashing,

And heard the thunder roll;

I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,

Trying to conquer my soul;

I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
And heard the thunder roll;
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;

I’ve heard the voice of Jesus,
Telling me still to fight on;
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone;
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

The world’s fierce winds are blowing,
Temptations are sharp and keen;
I feel a peace in knowing
My Savior stands between;
He stands to shield me from danger,
When earthly friends are gone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

When in affliction’s valley,
I’m treading the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry
My cross when heavy to bear;
My feet entangled with briars,
Ready to cast me down;
My Savior whispered His promise,
Never to leave me alone.

He died for me on the mountain,
For me they pierced His side,
For me He opened that fountain,
The crimson, cleansing tide;
For me He waiteth in glory,
Seated upon His throne;
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.
