Ever feel alone in the world? Feel like no one understands your situation? Society today teaches us that we ought to be self sufficient. The cultural transformation is easy to see. Instead of reaching for the phone to talk to friends about what's going on in life, individuals are turning to the comfort of their laptops and iPhones. Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have replaced one-on-one intimate conversations. The U.S. post office is considering cutting back their services to 5 days a week because people do not use these services like they once did. More and more people are choosing to communicate via world wide web instead of in person, one on one. The sad consequences of these choices is that society as a whole is losing it's ability to build real intimacy with one another, and as problems arise, the new generation no longer knows how to help one another and bare one another's burdens like generations before them,
However, there is ONE who will always be there to bear the burden. One who always understands and will guide you through any trial you may face. You are never alone.
Jesus says, ” I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 (NIV). He never gives you more than you can handle, but when it seems that no one cares and it's hard to find the support and encouragement desired, know God is always with you. Don't give up. There is a way to get through anything, and that way is through the one who gave His own life all for the sake of LOVE. Society can change. It is possible, but it's going to take one person reaching out to another and another and another, all reaching as Christ reaches for us. Think about that today.
