Often when we take a look at the world around us, we can become overwhelmed. But we say, “I am but one - what can I do?”
God had a purpose for putting us on this earth and for doing it in His way. God never intended that we should be alone – that we should have to face life alone – that is why He put each person in this world within a family. And that is why we cultivate friendships and gravitate toward one another.
Follow the link below for an inspirational video that demonstrates just how important each one is in their own place and at the right time. you will enjoy this. It shows how when we all come together in love and harmony, we can make beautiful music together or accomplish anything. There is a second video link below of a rendition of Joan Baez’ song, “No Man is an Island!”
Let’s face it, we need one another. Not everyone can be a physician, not everyone can be a musician, and not everyone can climb Mt. Everest. God had a purpose for each life He brought to this earth. Along with that came the freedom of will and choice. It is up to us if we meet the challenge of becoming the people He created us to be.
Every living person had to have a mother and a father in order to exist. Because it is God' plan that we never be alone. He provides for that plan all of our lives.
Each advancement of civilization that has been achieved was built on what others did before. A skyscraper is not built by just one; but many. Each stone carefully put in place.
This first video demonstrates what can be accomplished when people work together for a common goal. It is called, “The Best Coin Ever Spent.” You will love this.
Joan Baez which wrote these words:
No man is an island,
No man stands alone,
Each man's joy is joy to me,
Each man's grief is my own.
We need one another,
So I will defend,
Each man as my brother,
Each man as my friend.
I saw the people gather,
I heard the music start,
The song that they were singing,
Is ringing in my heart.
No man is an island,
Way out in the blue,
We all look to the one above,
For our strength to renew.
When I help my brother,
Then I know that I,
Plant the seed of friendship,
That will never die.
When the road seems dark and dreary and no one seems to care, we always have the hope and promise that Jesus will always be there.
There are many verses in the Bible which clarifies this. You can find them on this website; and by reading them you will come to realize that it is so true, that God will always be you. Bookmark this site and refer back to it when you feel alone.
