I believe that all human beings have moments of uncertainty and fear during their journey through this fallen world. I am no exception. I am approaching a circumstance I have visited before in my walk. I am facing homelessness. I have the advantage of knowing what to expect, but the abject terror I feel in weak moments is not relieved by familiarity. God will abide with me through whatever comes, just as He always has. I remind myself of this whenever panic grips me. In the weakness of my heart, I pray for God to take me home to heaven. He hasn’t and deep down, I know that He has a purpose for me and that all things happen in His timing. God is always good and I will praise His goodness no matter what happens. The new season ahead will surely be fraught with challenges and loneliness, but I will not be alone. My Father will be with me, lifting me up when I fall, and carrying me when I am exhausted. He will comfort my hurting heart and dry my tears. He will surround me with His presence when I am lonely. No, I will not be alone.
