Jesus made it possible for you and me to have a restored relationship with God and to be a family member when He took up his cross, in John 16:32. We all have times of loneliness, but only the presence of Jesus will do. Only Jesus can be with us for all time and he will. He will never leave us nor forsake us. When you know Jesus, you are never alone.
