Life has its ups and downs; its twists and its turns. It wouldn’t be life otherwise. There are dark days and there are brighter days. Yet even at the darkest, lowest point of our lives, we are never alone.
We all have felt it. We have felt lost, forgotten, neglected, unloved, as if no one can hear us or see us. But, all too often we forget, that there is always someone there who understands, who sees us, who has not and never will forget us; there is one whose love is infinite and eternal. Who is he? He is Jesus the Christ, our Lord, our Redeemer, our Saviour, our elder brother.
Christ lived a perfect life. He did nothing wrong. Yet, he was beaten, bruised, and ultimately killed. Not once did he complain. Why? Why would he do it? What was the point of all that pain and anguish he suffered?
He did it for US! He went through so much, because he chose to. He chose to be the sacrifice so we do not have to suffer as he did. In our anguish, in our despair, Christ is the one to whom we should turn. He went through it all, and now he can comfort us and help to strengthen us through those trials.
When you feel alone, drop to your knees in prayer. Ask for the comfort of the Saviour and His strength, the power to continue on. Many times have I done this throughout my life and have felt my Saviour’s love. I have felt his arms wrap around me. He extends his hand to me, to lift me up and to lead me back to the presence of my Heavenly Father.
This hand is extended to all of you. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
