I’m learning I am never alone.

“Why is it so hard to be me?”

Sometimes I whine, in the recesses of my own mind. Sometimes I laugh when I say it. Sometimes I don’t laugh at all.

When I am dealing with darkness and difficulty, I feel extremely alone.

Deep down a little voice says, “No one understands what I’m going through. No one.

But that’s an out and out lie the enemy feeds me.

Do you hear that lie too?

Don’t buy it. Because the truth is…

You and I are not alone.

Jesus does understand.

Jesus knows what it is like to be you and to be me.

Why is this important?

Because every time we think “No one knows what it’s like to be me in this situation,” Jesus does.

There is something miraculous about being known.

When you and I realize Jesus really does know us from the inside out, we don’t have to feel alone and misunderstood.


How does Jesus know?

The Bible tells us so.

Jesus knows what it’s like to…

The list goes on and on.

Jesus doesn’t just know you and I…

Jesus knows what it’s like to live in our skin.

Even 2017 years later, this means more than anything I can possibly fathom.

You and I are NEVER alone.
