12 days of Christmas day 5

Not Alone at All Day 5
"I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the word seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses."
- Taylor Caldwell
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:35-39

Never Alone
It is in the moments when we think we are completely alone that we realize that we are truly not alone at all. God is with us in the darkest night, during the coldest wind. This may be the moment when he chooses to pull us closer to Him than ever before. We should stand confidently in these moments, knowing that He is standing strong beside us whether we see Him or not.
