Today I feel alone.
My wife and kids are far away and the distance is more than the miles.
I look for those around me to fill the gap, but the gap remains.
I wonder who will comfort.
As I wondered, my mind told me what I already knew.
The Savior in his darkest moments in Gethsemane, was sent an angel.
If his suffering was infinite and eternal and he had to go to the lowest of lows; why was it that His Father sent a companion?
Wouldn’t that make it one tiny step from infinite?
No! Because the CONSTANT in the equation is that God is always near.
Jesus is my companion and I have the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Those who have eyes to see, my ancestors who are waiting for me to learn, are marching the trail with me, urging me on.
I will never be alone, no one will ever be alone, the Savior descended below them all and he was as close to alone as anyone in eternity will ever be.
I musn’t care what others think of me because I have learned that if my eye is single to the glory of God, and not those mortals in my path, I will succeed, those whose eyes have been enlightened by death will see where I am going, where I have been and who I am meant to be.
I know what I have been told, I know what I have been showed and I know that I have done my best.
Am I perfect? Heck no! Not even close. Am I trying? Absolutely!
I care no longer what others think, I care what my Father in Heaven thinks and He alone knows my struggles, my trials, my growth, my testimony, my love, my fears, my sorrows, my righteousness, my pride, my rebellion, my peace, my happiness, my strength, my weakness, my intent, my honesty, my sins, my empathy, my charity, ME!
I am not alone! They that are with me are greater than they that are against.
So I will fight the good fight, I will finish the race, I will keep the faith and at the end, I and my wife will meet up at the throne of God to be forever, not alone!
