There are going to be times in all of our lives when we are going to feel like we are all alone. When we go through those difficult times in life it can feel very lonely, and no one seemingly understands what we are going through. We look around and try to find somebody to talk to who will understand the struggles, and we discover there is probably no one who will understand because of the enormity of our issue. The Scripture reminds us, teaching them to ovserve all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. I encourage you today to remember you are never alone. You always have Jesus on your side no matter what you are going through. Jesus had to remind His disciples He would be with them always even to the end of the world. Jesus is reminding you of that same thing today, He is with you always and through all things. Every hill and mountain you have to climb Jesus is with you always. When friends and family leave you and turn their backs on you, Jesus is with you always. When you are misunderstood, Jesus is with you always. When you remember that Jesus is with you it gives you hope and strength to make it through when life becomes tough. When the clouds of life our hanging low and rain begins to fall in your life Jesus is right by your side. When the sun is shinning and things are going well for you, Jesus is with you always. No matter where you are right now in life Jesus is with you always and because He is with you don't forget to praise and thank Him for being by your side through everything you go through. Since Jesus is with me always I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for always being with me, and never leaving or forsaking me. In the most loneliest times of my life, you are always there and I am grateful. In Jesus Name Amen.
