There is something that I have reminded myself of for several months – I am alone with God and God alone. It gives me great comfort. I found a book recently called “Alone with God” by McArthur.
Alone with God—such an opportunity should be the Christian’s one great desire. How sad that so many believers spend brief amounts of time with Him, or don’t go to Him at all, because they have so little to say. –Alone with God
Being alone with God gives us a great opportunity to be with God.
I wish I could say this was the way I was living out this idea but it wasn’t, at least not exactly. While I was dealing with loneliness and finding comfort with God, God was dealing with love. I do not mean to imply that finding comfort with God in times of loneliness is bad. It just wasn’t exactly what God had in mind for me.
So what does all that mean? Maybe it means more meditation and unceasing prayer. Maybe it means more action. Maybe I’m just as lost as I was before…
