Alone in This Crowded Place

March 2, 2015

Yogi Berra, the New York Yankee Hall of Fame catcher, once said concerning a restaurant: “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” Can that be true? Logically, no. But was Yogi on to something?

Is it possible to be alone in a room crowded with people? Sadly, we know it is. We have all stumbled through a day surrounded by family, friends, co-workers. Yet we are alone. Isolated. Disconnected. Seemingly invisible to those who stand right beside us. We occupy our minds with thoughts of the next thing to say, but nobody wants to listen. Or so it seems.

Some people seek isolation. Maybe in response to pain. Possibly because they feel unworthy or inferior. Others wish they could connect. Yet convinced they have nothing to offer, men and women created in the very image of God hide in the open behind their detachment.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

For God loves us. Like King David, when we are lonely and afflicted, He turns to us and is gracious to us. (Psalm 25:16). He delights in us. The Lord never looks right past us. He cares about what we think. He loves to hear from his children. And He never will fail us. Not once. For His name is Faithful and True.

Next time you feel alone, even in a crowded place, remember not to trust feelings. Instead, trust in the One who promised to never leave or forsake us. He deeply desires that we connect. With Him. And with each other.
