“When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up (Psalms 27:10).”
The truth about humanity that most seem to ignore is how most people are fickle. It is that simple. There are those who stomp on others to get to their destination and others who are the ones being trampled along the way. Ask yourself, which kind of human are you?

For the majority of people, there will come moments in life in which they will feel alone. There will be an eerie, indiscriminant notion that nobody around them cares at all. How often do you find yourself in this dark place of loneliness and contemptibility?

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10).”

Remember that there is only ONE who will stay with you always. The Almighty, Giver and Taker of Life, our One and Only Creator of All, our Lord and Savior, and our Heavenly Father – whom will stand by all creation until the end of time. Forget not who created you. Fret not about the darkness that will attempt to attack you. Pray for the strength from our Lord Jesus, and put all your troubles in His mighty Hands.

“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you (John 14:18).”

During the time you feel alone and that those around you hate you. When people spite you and mock you and curse against you, do not forget He who is always with you. Jesus is our Lord, Savior, our Shield, and our Light. Do not neglect Him just as He does not neglect you.

Beloved, in these turbulent times, you will come faced with so much evil and corruption. This could be in the form of people in your life, you family, you work, or just a stroll in the park. Darkness will find you no matter where you go, or how hard you hide.

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear the darkness but embrace the light. Ask for God to help you and He will grant you your request. The prayer we do not speak will not be answered. Do not assume that when we whine or complain for validation from our brothers, that God will come to the rescue.

Humankind will not help you. Wake up and realize that it is only from God that anything happens. God is in control and we must acknowledge that life is according to His Will and not our own. Wake up and make more time for our Lord, before it is too late. You cannot make this time up, when you are dead.
