Yes, I've been there, helpless and alone, so very alone after my husband passed away, all I wanted to do was cry, and talk, but most of the time there was no one to talk to. This quote is a big help to me even now after over two years.
DA 669,670 "At all times and in all places, in all sorrows and in all afflictions, when the outlook seems dark and the future perplexing, and we feel helpless and alone, the Comforter will be sent in answer to the prayer of faith. Circumstances may separate us from every earthly friend; but no circumstance, no distance, can separate us from the heavenly Comforter. Wherever we are or wherever we may go, He is always at our right hand to support, sustain, uphold and cheer."
Jesus said in Ephesians 3:18,19 "The Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things. You shall be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length, and depth, and height, and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge."
What a promise for us when we are feeling helpless and lonely!! Hang on to this when you are in need of someone to talk to or to care. Someone is there beside you all the time. Grandma Joan
