Have you ever felt alone in your pain? Have you thought, “I’m the only one.” This man in John 5 has spent his whole life alone in his illness.
Today I’m grateful that Jesus reached His hand out to me when I was young. I was a loner, very few friends, and I found in Jesus a friend who was always there. I’m also grateful for the family and friends God has given me. They keep watch over me and love me on spite of myself. If I’m sick they take care of me.
If you find yourself hurting and alone, reach out to Jesus. He is there for you. And find a local church where you can develop friends and family.
