It is not possible to stand or walk in a crowd until you can stand and walk alone. 

The best gift you can give to those you love is a healthy you.  The second best gift is to help those you love to lead a good healthy life.

Think of the joy a child has when they learn a new skill. The joy on their faces is so special.  Baby takes her first steps. Parents beam with pride.  A child learns to ride a bike. Parents brag.

Too soon many children face adulthood. Too often we face forks in the road that present us with walking alone or going with the crowd.

The crucial question.

Do we choose to be a people pleaser or a God pleaser?  Nice if we can have it both ways. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

What does it mean to walk alone?

  • Actually enjoying to alone time
  • Delighting in silence
  • Time in your secret garden
  • Communication with the Lord & His Father
  • Doing God’s will not yours
  • Say no to unwise pressure from people

Alone time gives us the power to be strong when we are in the crowd.

Alone time is the time when we recharge and renew our strength.

Be still and know that I am God. – Psalm 46:10
