We sit in an empty room when our children leave home. Alone.
We think a million thoughts and feel a million things in our heart – alone. No one sees what lies inside.
No one can see through our eyes, speak with our lips, or hear with our ears.
No one can die with us. We do that alone.
And we stand before God. Alone.
Alone we choose to love Him and serve Him, or reject Him.
Alone we decide to be honest or deceitful. We decide how to use our words and who to love.
Women give birth, alone. No one else can deliver that child – sure they can help, but it lies inside of her and her alone.
God works in our “alone” moments. He uses those times to whisper, shout, or touch us in some way. He watches and He waits for us to call on Him, think of Him, love Him.
He is there to hold us when we cry alone. He is there to encourage us, when we despair alone. And He is there to rescue us, when we feel weak, tired, and spent on our own strength.
God speaks to us personally, intimately, and only for our ears and hearts to know.
Him and us.
Connection. Do you feel it? Do you see it?
He chose you alone. He died for you. Alone.
Powerful choices are made in those ‘alone’ moments. Never underestimate their lasting effects and influence.
