Feeling alone during the pandemic? If you're nodding, "Yes," you're not alone. Even if we have family or friends close by, we may still feel isolated. It is a strange notion that we are all "in this together," yet we suffer separately.
That feeling of being alone escalated last week when a family member was admitted to the I.C.U. Due to the pandemic, visitors were not allowed, so there was no one to sit by the bedside or hold a hand. It was frightening, worrisome, and depressing for her--and for the family.
Multitudes of prayers had been said over days of desperation. Then, an answer came: "Love will get your through." I rejoiced at the thought. Yes. Physical presence may have been prohibited, but the connection of hearts between family and friends remained strong as everyone reached out to each other in love.
God is good. Prayers have been answered. The latest news is that healing has begun for our family's loved one.
Have you faced a similar situation--or are you feeling isolated during this pandemic? If so, pray for God's guidance through this difficult time, then reach out to others. Make that phone call. Send that email. Ease the loneliness by staying connected--heart connected. You will be helping yourself--and someone else, too.
Do you know that God desires to connect with you? No matter what has happened in your life, He loves you and cares about you. Call on Him. He's just a prayer away, 24/7.
