You Are Never Alone {Mantra 19}

When I’m in bed at night and all is quiet, I’m disturbed if I hear a noise anywhere in the house.

But I’m not quite as scared if Jeff is right beside me.

There’s something comforting about not being alone.

I’m not sure exactly how it works, but whether in hard times or in good times, the presence of another person—and especially a person you love and who loves you—is a true gift.

It’s comforting to know . . .

You are never alone.

I’m not exactly sure how God works with presence.

But I believe the promise that God never abandons us. God never leaves us alone.

Embedded in God’s presence, God brings love and goodness.

God is someone I love and someone who loves me. God is a true gift.

For me. For you.

You are never alone.

    Yes, Lisa! He promises never to leave us or forsake us. And He’s more than a someone. He is *the* Someone who loves us more than we realize possible. Still, because He is invisible, we cannot always *feel* His presence. That is what I find difficult at times. That is when our faith, not just for faith’s sake, but faith in HIM, will win out.

    I’m reminded, too, of one of my favorite musical solos: “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

    Sometimes, I enjoy singing secular songs to the Lord, but knowing what *I* mean when I sing them. 🙂 This is one such song!

    Lyrics: “You’ll Never Walk Alone”

    When you walk through a storm
    Hold your head up high
    And don’t be afraid of the dark
    At the end of a storm
    There’s a golden sky
    And the sweet silver song of a lark
    Walk on through the wind
    Walk on through the rain
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown
    Walk on, walk on
    With hope in your heart
    And you’ll never walk alone
    You’ll never walk alone

    One time my husband was gone on a business trip, so I let our dog sleep inside. I carefully blocked off the area where I wanted her to sleep and went to bed feeling very safe. In the middle of the night, I could hear footsteps squeaking the loose boards in our hallway. My heart stopped. I sat up, and my rational mind told me the house was locked and NO ONE could get inside and past our German Shepherd. The footsteps came closer. I got out of bed and tiptoed to our bedroom door. Unlocked it, and peered into our hallway. Imagine my relief when I saw it was our dog! I had no idea she weighed enough to squeak the boards!
