We are not alone!
I was recently driving along and saw a sign on the side of a bus about depression. The by-line stated “You are not alone”. It got me to thinking about how in our society a person could feel alone. After all we are the most connected and in touch generation that has ever lived. I have access to people, places and information no matter where I am and yet people feel alone. It just goes to show you that there is more to a relationship than just being able to talk to someone.
I think the first thing we need is time. Noone has time for anyone anymore. In our time poor society where we try to do more and more, we don’t seem to have time for each other. No-one ever seems to stop in the street and pass the time of day. No-one seems to drop in for a chat anymore and if they did its an imposition. Everything is timed and scheduled and diarised.
And if we don’t have time then neither do we have commitment. We seem to be more concerned with doing things and achieving things and going places than connecting with people. I don’t know how many times I have been contacted by someone for the first time in ages only to be asked to solve a problem or answer a question. They seem to be interested in me only because I help them to achieve something.
No wonder people feel alone.
In all this nervous haste and busyness ther is one who has time and commitment just for you. God is there, we are not alone. He is so committed to us that he sent his only son to die for us. He so wants to spend time with us that heaven stands still to hear our prayers. He is always there, always willing to listen, always able to help. I often wonder what I would do without God in my life. It would be a fearfully lonely place.
Your Comments:Do you realize how devastatingly harmful your unfounded, non-researched claims can have on people who may be suffering from clinical depression. You are asking people to disregard medical evidence and instead join your belief for your god and all will be well? This is the way of any cult or marketing scheme, completely selfish on the organizations behalf without any regard for the wellbeing of individulals.
Mental heath IS a true medical issue and needs to be dealt with correctly. Many people who suffer from mental illness horribly commit suicide if not given the right medical treatment. And what does the church do, they condemn these people to hell.
Your God may exist but believing in god is not the answer for an illness. There are any millions of other people that believe in other Gods, what is to say you are right and they are wrong. This will just and conflict and confusion to someone who needs REAL HUMAN INTERACTION
I am very happily married, have a wonderful network of friends and family, but unfortunately I still suffered from depression. I sort out and got the medical help I needed and my life is happy and full. You really don't know what you're talking about and I
