"May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant" (Ps. 119:76).

Maybe you've heard of Elvis Presley's song, "Are You Lonesome Tonight." But did you know that you can be alone without being lonely? I travel all the time and stay in hotels by myself, but I enjoy being alone and spending time with God.

You can, too. He is always there for you. When you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you (James 4:8).

You are never really alone. The Holy Spirit lives right inside you and is with you wherever you go! In Matthew 28:20, Jesus says, "I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

In Hebrews 13:5, He says, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Wherever you go, The Holy Spirit is with you.

Maybe you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe you've just broken up with someone and you are lonely. Jesus promised in John 14:18 that He wouldn't leave you comfortless, and in verse 16, He says that He has asked God to give you another Comforter—who is the Holy Spirit.

You can lean on Him when you need comfort. Going out with a Christian friend can help, too. If you don't have a friend like that, ask God to give you one, and He will.

Remember, being alone doesn't have to mean you are lonesome. God cares. Go to Him, and remember that the Holy Spirit is right there inside of you, wherever you are!1

Make Your Day Count
Spend a few moments in God's presence thinking about the verses above and let the Holy Spirit envelop you with His comfort. Then go out with a friend and have fun.
