Friends!

My Friend, I want you to know how glad I am that we are both here at the same time and can share this moment together.

I want you to know that you are never alone.  Yes, I know you may sometimes feel as though you are all alone.  I have had those feelings myself too.

Times when a decision has to be made, but the choice is too difficult to be clear, or worse yet, when you know exactly the choice you should make, but it is just too hard to do can leave you feeling very alone and vulnerable!

Perhaps something caught you by surprise and you did not know where to turn for help.  Or the help offered really was not helpful at all.  Others just do not understand.  What is a person to do?

I want you to know that even when there is no one else there with you, you are not alone.  It was never part of the plan to give you nowhere to turn, nothing to choose.

So the next time that you feel alone and have no idea where to turn,

Look up.

Look to heaven and say a prayer, talk to your Heavenly Father as though He were your best friend and was right there next to you.  Explain what is going on, how you feel, what you have done, what you are wrestling with, what you would like to feel, the type of person you would like to become, and anything else you would share with a friend.

Then listen.

The Psalmist wrote, “Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalms 46:10).

After you have gotten everything out and you stop to be still, watch for the feeling that comes.  Although your world may seem to be in great chaos and turmoil, and there certainly can be no peace, see what feeling comes into your heart.

“Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.” (Doctrine and Covenants 8:2).  Look for the calm and peace that God bestows upon His children when they turn to Him and ask for His help.

So, although it may not make any logical sense to feel differently because of all that is going on around you at this moment, realize and enjoy the Spirit of God as you ask for His help.  You can feel peace in the midst of all that is going on.  Beautiful, quiet, calming peace.

It is a gift from your loving Father in Heaven.  He is always there, waiting for you to turn to Him.  Take the first step towards Him, and you will be amazed at what He will do for you.

You are never alone!
