As I pray this I ask you, brothers and sisters, to pray along with me and stand in agreement so that others who are experiencing this too may find comfort.
I am alone, my spouse and I are separated, there are days even though I may be in a crowd of people, I stand alone, wishing for even one person to acknowledge the pain I am enduring. But no, they carry on about their day. Who am I to them that they should stop and ask or even know such things? However, even in the midst of loneliness, I take comfort in knowing that I can pour out every hurt, shed every tear unto the Lord and He WILL hear and ACKNOWLEDGE me. I can stand firm in knowing that He has not forsaken me, that He will use this time to temper me into something stronger than who I was before. My circumstances, my background, social status nor my significant other doesn't define who I am, my walk with the Lord does. It's okay to be sad, it's okay to cry, it's okay to feel pain but it's not okay to let these circumstances dictate how I live the rest of my days. I pray, Lord, that You will use this time to shape me, temper me and allow me to use these experiences to help others who are going through this. Forgive me also, for my own personal failings, my actions or inactions that may have led me to this point. I AM NOT ALONE, YOU ARE NOT ALONE, WE ARE NEVER ALONE, because the Lord is there with us every step of the way. Thank you Lord, I pray in your name, AMEN.
