Have you ever felt all alone?
Maybe you’re in a room full of people but you may still feel alone. I know I’ve been there many times.
Did you know that even a prophet felt that way before? Yes, Elijah the Prophet!
You can read about it in 1 Kings 19. Elijah had to run for his life. Queen Jezebel wanted to kill him.
When he got to the wilderness he prayed to the Lord to take his life. He didn’t want to live anymore.
God saw that Elijah was week and provided him some food.
God asked him what was wrong. Elijah replied, “I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”(1 Kings 19:10)
Can you believe that a prophet that delivered messages from God could feel depressed and alone?
The story doesn’t end there though. God then revealed Himself to Elijah. Not in an earthquake. Not in a whirlwind. But in a still, small voice. Then He told Elijah about the 7,000 people that God still had left serving Him.
Elijah wasn’t alone.

This review is my honest thoughts on a friend’s book that I received for free. I was in no way bribed, coerced, or begged to write this review. This post is my honest heart felt thoughts and I was in no way compensated for what I said. Basically if I hadn’t of liked the book, I wouldn’t have written this review. (And no I’m not saying that I will write a review for every book I like. If you don’t see me write a review for your book don’t feel like I didn’t like it. *sigh* I’m not very good at this disclosure stuff.) 😉
But that being said, I have been reading a whole lot of good books lately so don’t be surprised if I do talk about some of them.Like
Lovely book. I recommend it. Lmc
