Never Alone, yet still Lonely

One of the worst fits of depression is being among a group of people, yet have a sense of loneliness.  There is an old praise song that is a favorite of mine.  I first found it in the “Low Voice” series of solos.  The chorus says:

“Never Alone, because I know my LORD is near me.  Never Alone, HE’s always standing by; JESUS has promised to take my hand and guide me. Never Alone, no Never Alone am I”

“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” – John 14:18

“Will Not” means “Never”. “Never” means always and forever.  I suffered from ‘loneliness’ for many years due to whatever ‘bi-polar’ is.  My sense of claustrophobia among people made me want to draw back, within. I thought I was anti-social when all along it was chemical imbalance. Now, with my ‘sweet pills’, I can look outside my own pitiful self and sense the presence of a loving GOD whose patience and provision is all anyone needs to never be lonely again.  I know things are somewhat better around the house because the storm that was the ‘man’ is now a calming little bit of sunshine, donchaknow.  (If I could only control my clutter!) That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.   AMEN
