“Never Alone”

Oh you reign in my soul
Oh you reign in my soul
I will never be alone

REVIVAL THOUGHT
Technology is an incredible gift.
The fact that we can order a meal and have it arrive in under 3 min without even having to leave our cars is astounding. Medical breakthroughs, inventions, cutting edge music, all made possible through technology.
How cool is it that we don’t have to send messenger pigeons or smoke signals, but we can have an instant conversation with someone through our phones or social media, regardless of whether they’re sitting in the next room or another country!

We are alive in a time where we are more connected than ever, and yet how is it that so many people feel more disconnected than ever?
Loneliness is one of the biggest issues facing our generation today. Mother Theresa said “loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.”
If this statement is true, then the opposite must also be true – when we know we are never alone and are loved beyond measure, it is more valuable to us than all the riches in the world.

This is why the Gospel is often called “The Good News” – we have this reassurance that no matter what situation we find ourselves in, God will never leave us on our own or hang us out to dry. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:24 that there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother – and that friend is Jesus. Even if those closest to us fail us, He never will.
And the best part is that when we do this journey with God, he will always surround us with people who will help us to become all we’ve been destined for!

So let's be all in with God, and allow the truth to sink in that when we have Him, we are never alone.
