Alone – Five Minute Friday

Alone.

A lone survivor.

A lone voice in the haunting echoes of silence.

A lone scapegoat.

A lone warrior who battles on, despite the carnage that surrounds.

The foggy mist is lifted.

A light pierces the oppressing darkness.

Misery may love company,

but this; this is different.

This is the unshakable, undeniable peace that overwhelms from the inside out.

It is the inexplicable assurance that there was One who willingly walked alone.

He alone faced the ultimate forsaking, the extreme humiliation and denial.

He alone faced death…without God’s Hand to shield Him.

He did it for me, and for you, so we would

not be alone. 

Hebrews 13:5, “I will never leave you or forsake you”.

Alone?

Never.

This post is in response to http://katemotaung.com/  and today’s prompt for Five Minute Friday, alone.
