We Are Never Alone

I love this time of season and hearing people talk about Holy Week and the resurrection.  I wanted to keep it going a little bit more.  One thing I heard someone say at church on Sunday was that we could have Easter everyday.  I really liked that and have decided that I am going to try to have Easter everyday.  Because I love the message of Easter I wanted to share this video because it really touched my heart:

One thing that touched me was the fact that at the time when he was suffering the most the Savior had to bring about our salvation on his own.  As stated in the video the supporting circle around the Savior got smaller and smaller until he was left on his own to continue his journey back to his Father without comfort or companionship.  And to think, he did that for me without complaint.  I cannot count the number of times I've grumbled and complained as I've experienced life's little setbacks.  Heck, there have been times when I've grumbled just because it was Sunday and I had to go to church.  

But what this video really made me think about was that unlike the Savior, I will never be left to journey through life's trials and tribulations alone.   Think of it - We are never alone..... ever!  That thought made me really stop and think!  I will never be asked to pass through a trial by myself.  A loving and merciful God has surrounded me with people from whom I can borrow strength and find comfort.  I will never be alone.  Sometimes the strength and comfort comes directly to us from God.  But in my life I have found that more often than not that comfort and strength comes from other people that God has placed in my life. 

There have been many times in my life when I have relied on other people's strength.  I have a dear friend that I know I can turn to when I am facing a specific trial.  She's been through it, she understands exactly how I'm feeling and she is able to share her strength with me until my strength is sufficient to carry me through.   I always know that when I get off the phone with her I will feel stronger - I consider it my personal "spiritual steroid shot".   No matter how alone you feel at times in your journey, always remember that you are never alone....ever.

Thank you for posting this. I was reading scripture this morning that resonated with me and this topic of borrowed strength. Christ loves us. He really loves us.

1 Nephi 21:15
For can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee...

v. 16
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands...

Like it is said before, the Lord experienced complete and utter loneliness. He experienced even God withdraw from Him. How awful this must have felt. And yet, because of this, we will never be alone. He is always there for us. We are written on his hands.

He really is love. And He without a doubt loves us.
