Feeling Loneliness

storm Feeling Loneliness

 There are times when I feel abandoned by everyone: I feel that I am walking through life in a bowl of Jell-o and looking at life through a piece of cellophane paper; then I remind myself that I am never truly alone. The path I walk is filled with the light of God.

This morning, the words of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from the musical Carousel, came to mind. So, I decided to look at the lyrics thoughtfully this morning.

 

When you walk through a storm

Hold your head up high

And don’t be afraid of the dark.

At the end of the storm

Is a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,

Walk on through the rain,

Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown.

Walk on, walk on

With hope in your heart

And you’ll never walk alone,

You’ll never walk alone. 

By changing just a few words, such as: instead of storm, use illness, depression, or troubles; and the, change the words “song of a lark” to the Love of God, the song takes a whole new tone. I will agree, however, that when Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote this, they may have had this same idea in mind.

Meditate a while on the prayer that these words truly convey to us.

They are beautiful.

 

When you walk through trouble

Hold your head up high

And don’t be afraid of the dark.

At the end of the storm

Is a golden sky

And the sweet silver Love of God.

Walk on through the wind,

Walk on through the rain,

Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown.

Walk on, walk on

With hope in your heart

And you’ll never walk alone,

You’ll never walk alone.
