Monophobia is the strong or abnormal fear of being alone. I dare say we have all been this at one time or another.
A child fears the dark and begs Mommy to stay with him till he goes to sleep. A teen walks home on a dark night or a recent widow is alone for the first time. Yes, we all have times when we fear being alone.
When my husband first died, I bought heavy curtains for some of the windows so that no-one could look in. I felt quite unprotected because I was alone.
When do you feel alone? Sometimes even in a crowd that overwhelming feeling of being alone, or unconnected might pour over us.
We don’t need to be afraid, but we do have to realize that while we might feel alone, we are definitely not. If we have asked Jesus into our lives, we are not alone, for he sends us his Holy Spirit.
But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you. (John 14:26, NLT)
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, (1 Corinthians 6:19, NLT)
Prayer- Lord thank you that any monophobia feelings we might have are really false. We are never alone because the promised Holy Spirit lives in us. Thank you and Amen!
