Molly’s Minute: Separated From Loved Ones, But Not From God

May 8, 2020

You might not know this about me, but I’m a huge introvert. I have no problem being alone.

So, when all this really picked up and we had to start social distancing, I wasn’t worried at all. I thought I’d be fine.

But the longer this has gone on, the more I’ve started to miss my people—my family and my friends. I’ve started to feel lonely

And if I’m feeling lonely, I can’t imagine how my more extroverted friends must be feeling.

If you’re feeling lonely right now, I want to remind you of this:

Even though we’re separated from our loved ones during this time, we have not been, nor will we ever be, separated from God. He is just as close to you now as He was before.

And when you invite Him in, even if you’re alone, it feels like being in a room with all your closest family and friends. You get that warm, fuzzy feeling.

So, until we can be in that room again, let’s cling to the one we can never be separated from.

Romans 8:38-39 “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our lord.”
