I Am Never Alone

Regardless of how I feel, I am connected.  I am connected visually to those who see me at any given moment in time.  I am connected by line of sight to everything I can see outside my windows.  I am especially drawn to the trees.

I am connected by blood to my mother and father, sisters and brothers.  I also carry the blood of my ancestors, from older days in faraway places.

I am connected by faith to everyone who believes in God whether they use that name or not.  I am connected to all who name the name of Jesus as Savior and Lord.  I am connected through hours of bright and moving worship in my local church through the power of the Spirit of God.

I am connected to all who inhabit the same city, the same state, the same country and the same planet.  I am connected to every citizen of every place I have ever lived.

I am connected by gravity to the earth and at night find my eyes drawn to the skies above.

With all these connections, I cannot believe any feeling that tries to convince me I am all alone.  I am never alone.  Never.

    I have felt unconnected emotionally forever and a day. In my brain I acknowledge all these connections above, but when it comes to personal connection that’s where I struggle.
