God of the Lonely

The holidays are a lot of things.

They are certainly times that can intensify all that we are feeling and going through.  They can be times of joy and togetherness, but they can also be times of pain and loneliness. 

Often, they are a combination of both. God promises to be with us and to give us strength. Whether you are with loved ones or are alone, look for glimpses of Him this holiday season

Matthew 1:23 “…they will name him Immanuel.” This name means “God is with us.” - Step outside your perspective and examine how God has been with you this year. Consider writing them all down in a notebook as a reminder.

Philippians 4:13
“I can do all things through Christ because he gives me strength.” - What kind of strength do you need to thrive in your current situation? Take that need to God in prayer.
