Never Alone

Never Alone

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 "Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help lift him up."

I remember how true this was a few years ago when my mother fell.  She could not get up on her own and my brother was gone to work. She laid on the floor for a few hours before he got home and found her.  She was never again the same after that.  It really affected her as I am sure it would have any one of us.

This passage from Ecclesiastes rings true in my life.  I have family and friends, but they are not always with me 24/7.  But I have JESUS who is always there, always watching, always ready to come to my aide.  What a feeling of security I have in that.

And don't think that you will not fall.  We all do.  If not physically, then morally.  We need someone to pick up up and dust us off and to give us an encouraging word and to send us on our way. 

How about you?  Are you trying to go it alone? Why?  Give JESUS a chance in your life. Do it today!

Blessings All!
