I am learning a lesson though in "Aloneness". This is my third service in a church full of people when I know NOT ONE SOUL. It has taken a lot of courage to cross those thresholds alone and before today--I was often circling back to my feeling of being alone--even when shoulder to shoulder with a crowd. Today--I finally "Got It"--what God has been trying to show me---It is NOT about community---though He encourages us to be in fellowship---it IS ALL ABOUT HIM! When there is no one around you to distract you--when your thoughts and eyes are pointed toward worship---HE IS THERE! I am never alone---HE IS ALWAYS WITH ME--even in the midst of the connected multitudes--I am NOT alone---HE IS BY MY SIDE!
So why do you attend worship---is it about who you are with--who you will see---OR is it all about Him? He is teaching me to truly be attuned to His presence and turn toward Him in Praise and Worship---for who He is--THE GREAT I AM!
