At this time of year, many people are especially lonely. Perhaps you may have lost a loved one recently or maybe you are single and don’t have a special someone to spend time with during the holidays or maybe you are going through some tough times in your relationship with your spouse or significant other.
Well, let me encourage you by saying you are never alone. Jesus is your friend and He is always with you. In fact we could never have a better friend than Jesus. He is always there to talk to, always understands us, loves us unconditionally and gives us peace. Scripture says He sticks by us closer than a brother. What more can you ask for in a friend?
I know what you’re thinking. “Well, Jesus is not here in a real person.” Wrong again. Jesus is a person. He is alive in each of us who have accepted him as our Lord and Savior.
So when you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, remember that Jesus lives in you and be at peace. And then pick up the phone and call someone else who may be just as lonely and plan to get together. You will be blessed and bring a blessing into their life and isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
Let me know your thoughts and comments and have a wonderful, joyful day!
