Alone? or alone with God?

No pit of loneliness is so deep that the Christ cannot reach it.

Loneliness seems to be a characteristic of contemporary society. Many people live alone, separated from friends and family, having to care for themselves. Then there are homeless and wandering street people, often forsaken, abused, afraid.

Other people may feel alone even though they are surrounded by all their loved ones and by the apparently valuable things the world says are sure to flood us with gaiety.

But loneliness can be healed. No one needs to suffer from it. The Bible promises: "Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate ... for the Lord delighteth in thee." Isa. 62:3, 4.
