1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

This means that if we walk in accordance to God's Word, we can have fellowship with Him, and also with one another. God is a "friend that sticketh closer than a brother," Proverbs 18:24.

It's a wonderful thing to have friends, people you can talk to and enjoy each others company with. Friends laugh together, play together, work together, and sometimes cry together. But you may be going through a time when you don't think you have any good friends. You may feel like you're alone. The feeling of loneliness sometimes overwhelms you.

Last night, we had a wonderful fellowship meeting. We seemed to all be in one accord and the spirit in the service and fellowship afterwards was wonderful. We all had the same common denominator, Christ and his love. But there are times when I feel all alone, maybe not physically so as I'm happily married and have four wonderful children and 5 grandchildren. But there are times when I, like everyone else, go through valleys that no one else can understand. Sometimes my wife goes through valleys that I don't quite understand and all I can do is encourage and pray. You may be in that condition now.

You're not the first, nor will you be the last. David felt this way and remember what Jesus said on the cross, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" He was so alone that he felt even his Father had forsaken him. But I got good news for you. Maybe even the closest family member seems to have forsaken you, the Lord will take you up if you come to him. Psalms 27:10 says, "When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up." The Lord will never forsake you if you don't forsake him. If you've not come to him, pray and ask him into your heart and life now. You'll never be forsaken by him if you let him guide you and if you trust in him
