There is something comforting about just being with someone. Even if we aren’t talking directly to each other, but the fact that they’re sitting right there next to me in the same room makes me feel comforted. Not lonely. Two is better than one, you know?
As I think about the hard times in my life, it is always much more comforting and easier to get through something when I had someone to go through it with.
Like when you get that hard news from the doctor. It just feels better to have someone there, crying with you. It’s not easy and it very well knocks you down, but you feel supported. That you are loved no matter what the outcome is. They are sharing the burden with you… and it feels a little better not to carry it all alone. They are there walking through the fire with you. God promises that he is there too. Sister, that is holy ground. That is sacred. You better take off those shoes.
Do you see his promises in scripture? Over and over again, God promises that he is with us. After all, that is his name, “Emmanuel”, which means “God with us.”
And not just in the hard times, but in the good times too. When you’re sitting around that dinner table with all of your family members playing board games and laughing so hard you almost pee your pants. That is holy ground. He is there.
And when you meet that precious new baby you’ve prayed so long and hard for. Yes, God is there too, in that sweet and peaceful moment.
And right now, if you’re alone reading this. He is with you, sweet sister. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
You will never walk alone.
