“I AM with you. I desire for you to celebrate your life. Celebrate the life that you are living. Celebrate that you have life, that you can be upon the Earth in the midst of creation, and that you can experience, love and light and laughter. I desire for you to experience the joy of life. You can begin to do this when you celebrate your life. So let us walk into this day celebrating life for it is a precious gift given to you. Celebrate it today.

“Your life was not meant to be lived in isolation. You were not meant to be all alone. That is why loneliness is so difficult. That is why loneliness robs you of your health and of your joy of life. For my Heavenly Father said, ‘It is not good for man to be alone’, and so he created a helper, a helpmate, for man so that mankind would not be alone.

“When you were born, you were born into a family. It took a mother and a father to create you. You were born to them and of them. You were set in this family so that you would not be alone. Your family was there to give you what you needed so that you could grow into adulthood, and then, replicate the process by starting a family of your own. You are most content and fulfilled when you operate within your family structure. When your family is harmonious and loving and supportive of one another, then you thrive. Then you are not lonely or alone, but are surrounded by others who love and care for you.

“The world you live in is not perfect. It is broken. As a result, families are broken and fractured. Marriages dissolve. People do not get along with one another. People do not love each other as I have commanded you to do. It is a free will choice, and so because it is a free will choice, it is not perfect in the world. When these things happen—when families fall apart, when marriages dissolve, when friendships splinter—loneliness can settle in your heart. Loneliness can begin to rob you of the joy of life.

“Today, if you find yourself in a lonely place, lift your head. Look to your Heavenly Father, look to me, and look to the Holy Spirit. For you are never alone. When I knew that my time upon the Earth was up and nearing its end, I knew that my disciples would be grieved. They would feel lonely because they would no longer have me with them. I told them that I was going to send a comforter, my Holy Spirit, to be with them always—to comfort them and to teach them and tell them all the things that I did not have the time to do while I was on the Earth. The same is true today. My Holy Spirit is with you. You are not alone.

“Sit and commune with the Holy Spirit, with me, and your Heavenly Father. Feel our presence, and allow us to wipe away your loneliness and give you back the joy of life.”
