Alone No More

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him,  for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. – John 14:16-18

Remember Bambi? The poor little baby deer lost his mother at the beginning of the movie to a hunter. It made many children cry and perhaps some adults to think of this deer not being with his mother and all alone. But soon friends came into his life such as Thumper and Flower. He was no longer alone which gave everyone a sense of relief.

When we think of orphans today, we feel that same sense of sadness. They are alone in this great big world. We pray that someone will take them into their home so that they don’t need to be alone anymore. Being always alone is a fear many of us carry which is why we react strongly to it. We were made to need one another and to fellowship.

God provides for us with the Holy Spirit. He wanted to make sure we would never be alone. The relationship we develop with the Spirit is so fulfilling that no matter where we are or what we are doing, we always have our special close friend with us that empowers us through each day.

Prayer: Thank you, Dear Lord, for the wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit. I pray that I can keep connected to your Spirit and enjoy the rich relationship with you. Amen

Faith Tip: Spend some time with the Spirit today and build on your relationship with God.
