7 billion on the planet. 30k in Marshalltown. House full of people. I feel all alone. Can I thank God when I feel left out…hopeless…alone?
Our 20’s are often marked by PROMISE and PROBLEMS. This was also true for David. In 1 Samuel 16, David is anointed as the next king of Israel. We would think that should be a time of celebration, which it is, but it also means that life will be easy. David’s anointing didn’t bring ease, it brought problems that produced loneliness.
Did David have a prayer of thanksgiving in his loneliness?
Do we have a prayer of thanksgiving in our loneliness?
God uses our loneliness to strip away all the life preservers we use to keep afloat, so He can lift us up and place our feet on the water to be able to walk with Him.
David’s season of loneliness produced Psalm 19 and 23.
