Our heavenly Companion

Updated on August 9, 2011

In this broken world we live in today, a lot of time is spent on the sick and disabled. The elderly and toddlers are for the most part being cared for with love and all their needs provided for. Drug addicts and alcoholics are being helped to overcome their problems with sympathy.
People in need enjoy our undivided attention, and charity organizations have been created all over the world in order to provide for these people.

And this is how it should be, but what about those who are lonely? How do you identify and provide in a need that you can’t see? How can you be a friend and companion to someone if you aren’t even aware of their loneliness?
The end result of this conundrum is that there are many lonely and desperate people out there who feel they are completely alone in this unsympathetic world where no one cares for them.

Now, when you are single like I am and you do have wonderful friends, but most of them are married and have their own lives and perhaps different priorities, then you can’t judge them for genuinely not being aware of your loneliness. And even when you are with your friends and they try to include you as much as possible, it is inevitable that you are going to feel like an outsider or the third wheel eventually, and that just leads to you rather withdrawing yourself from them and staying at home. But, that’s not their fault either.

It is in situations like these that all lonely people (myself included) can have the blessed assurance that we are NEVER alone. Even if it might be difficult to understand, we must accept the reassuring truth that the living Christ is always with us as promised in His Word, “for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Heb 13:5)”

So the next time you are feeling lonely, turn to Christ. Talk to Him, tell Him about your day and discuss anything you want to with Him out loud. And no matter that your neighbours might think you’re crazy (if you’re like me they probably already think so having seen and heard you talk to yourself). Open your heart to the Holy Spirit and He will make you feel loved and cared for and before you know it the loneliness will disappear.

Remember my friend; the Holy Spirit is your trusted Companion. He is never too busy to listen and to Him you are His priority!

Be Blessed!!!!!

      Thank you DDelport for a very beautifully written hub. Loneliness is definitly something that can drown you if you're not careful. Your hub, however, is very inspiring and reassuring.
