You’re Not Alone


Loneliness.  It’s something people who are going through grief and depression feel and are very familiar with.  It is very common for those who are in these states to feel alone and hopeless.

Recently, I have felt very much alone in my grief.  I am trying to process it and heal through it, but I don’t think that has been going very well as my support group is very small (although, this blog has really been helping me with feel less alone in this battle).

On my way home from work the other day, I heard the song You’re Not Alone by Meredith Andrews.  It really comforted me to know that I am not alone.  Even though I feel like no one really understands my grief, God does.  God gets my grief and you know what?  He accepts it and lets me take as much time as I need to get through it.  He doesn’t rush me through it.  He also tries to comfort me through it and provides me with a deep love.  I am not alone.  He is with me at all times.  He has seen me through my darkest hours and nights.  And, most importantly, unlike humans he has loved me through my grief and depression cycles.  He has not given up on me and never will.  That brings great comfort to me.

In the end, through grief and depression, let’s remember that we are truly not alone.  We may feel alone, but we are not.  God is here with us and giving us the love we so desperately need.  We just have to be still, listen, and feel his love.

I was very touched by the lyrics to the song You’re Not Alone that I am providing them below.  Perhaps, you will be touched by them as well!

I searched for love when the night came and it closed in
I was alone, but You found me where I was hiding
And now I’ll never ever be the same
It was the sweetest voice that called my name, saying

You’re not alone for I am here
Let me wipe away your every fear
My love, I’ve never left your side
I have seen you through the darkest night
And I’m the One who’s loved you all your life
All your life

You cry yourself to sleep
because the hurt is real and the pain cuts deep
All hope seems lost with heartache your closest friend
And everyone else long gone
You’ve had to face the music on your own
But there is a sweeter song that calls you home, saying

You’re not alone for I am here
Let me wipe away your every tear
My love, I’ve never left your side
I have seen you through the darkest night
And I’m the One who’s loved you all your life
All your life

Faithful and true forever
My love will carry you

You’re not alone for I, I am here
Let me wipe away your every fear
My love, I’ve never left your side
I have seen you through the darkest night
Your darkest night
And I’m the One who’s loved you all your life
All your life
