In the world today we still find lands that no nation or person claims as their own. Sometimes it is war that has made the land uninhabitable or politics in the past left an area in dispute. Whatever the reason, there are these places where people don't go. Then there are those odd places called cities where some folks like to live stacked a hundred deep on one little piece of land. Above all of these human conditions is God. "For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills." (Psalm 50:10) The cattle on a thousand hills? God has obviously been out to the Nebraska Sandhills. Many other places as well, for cattle have spread along with humans over much of the Earth. Of course those places with no hills or cattle belong to God too.
For some reason a rather odd phrase came to be used for those lonely places where not many humans live or walk, and that is 'God forsaken'. This is confusing given that God is omnipresent. One or the other must be untrue. And that is our comfort, for wherever you or I may go God is there both before us and with us. We never walk alone even in those places where it may seem that our brothers and sisters in Christ are far, far away. A trip to a new place need not be anxious given that our Lord is already waiting for us at the destination and travels with us every step of the way.
'Lonely Christian' seems to be an oxymoron we get from not paying attention to where God is.Bucky
