In the Corner

In one of our fellowship discussions at church, we talked on how loneliness and isolation can affect our lives. It is important to be connected to each other and to have meaningful relationships in our lives. That way we will be on the straight and narrow path that Christ talks about during his life on earth and we will make the right decisions for ourselves.
Loneliness is an easy emotion that can pop up when we least expect it. It can even occur after being with a group of people for an entire day. The withdrawal from people can sometimes be intense, but our leaning upon God is critical, especially since He states "My yoke is easy and my burden is light." That then is the secret of how we can overcome the loneliness and be connected to each other as Jesus states, "you are the branches and I am the vine."
Now that is an effective way to live, but it is often hard to live out.
