I was spending some time writing a story for a friend of mine, when I discovered how lonely I’ve been feeling lately. It’s odd how simply writing her story could trigger the feeling, but what struck me was that, as I was writing, I kept hearing the words, “My grace is sufficient for you.”
In the middle of the sense that I’m not enough by myself, God sent along a reminder that his grace is all that I need.
Has the loneliness disappeared? Not really. Especially as I consider how much I miss this friend. But I think I’m discovering that, although I may be lonely, I’m never alone.
