There are times when I see a bird alone and I feel sorry for it….
They are probably doing just fine, but it’s almost as if I feel that they are lonely.
No other birds to fly with.
No other birds to play in the water with.
Searching for food, just looking around—–alone.
At the end of my driveway, a bird stood all by himself in the water that had collected from the rain.
When I think about people instead of birds, I realize that there are times when it is good to be alone.
It is certainly good to be alone for a time of prayer and Bible study.
Being alone to just reflect on life and important decisions that need to be made is of great importance.
There are other times that being alone is good, as well.
Times when we don’t fit in, and we are alone.
Not part of the crowd.
Times when we hold to the truth that God has given us, even when it is not accepted.
We may find ourselves alone, then, too.
Proverbs 19:1 reads,
Better is a poor person who walks in his integrity than one who is crooked in speech and is a fool.
If we are alone because we are following God, seeking integrity in His eyes, that is cause enough to choose that solitude.
