Psalm 147:3

“The One” thing

There is but “One.”
It is not my family.  It is not my spouse.  It is not my friends.  It is not my things, my cars, my bike or my toys.  It is not drugs, alcohol or sex.  None of these people nor these things can fill the utter emptiness I sometimes feel in my life.  How about you?  None of these can cover the loneliness, worthlessness, hopelessness, helplessness or the guilt that at times are simply overwhelming in my life.There is but “One”.

“The One” has a name, and His name is Jesus.  It is not religion, but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Look at His promises to us on these points.


Hebrews 13:5-6
…for He Himself said, ” I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear.”

Matthew 28:20
“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Psalm 139:1-6
“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everyting about me.  You know when I sit down or stand up.  You know my thoughts even when I am  far away.  You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.  You know everything I do.  You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.  You go before me and follow me.  You place your hand of blessing on my head.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!”

We are never alone

Jeremiah 29:11
“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.  “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world (you) so much that He gave His only one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus Christ loves you and me so much that He willingly went to the cross for us to reconcile with the Father.  He paid the debt for our sins that on our own we could never pay.  We are never, ever, worthless in the sight of God.


Jeremiah 29:11
“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.  “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Lamentations 3:21-25
“Yet this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope.  Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  I say to myself, the Lord is my inheritance, therefore I will wait for Him.  The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him.”

Psalm 43:5
“Why am I discouraged?  Why is my heart so sad?  I will put my hope in God!  I will praise Him again-my Savior and my God!


Psalm  9:9-10
“The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.  Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O LORD, do not abandon those who search  for you.”

Psalm 18:1-2
“I love you, LORD; you are my strength.  The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find  protection.  He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.”


1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Psalm 103:12-13
“He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.  The LORD is like a father to His children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.”

II Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

All of our past sins are gone in His eyes.  God has forgiven you, now forgive yourself, for “…you are a new creation.”


There is but One that completely covers each and every one of the five intense feelings above.
It is Christ and Christ alone.

How to meet the “One” personally

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing you can begin the most important relationship of your life right now.  Remember, He is  “with you always, even to the end of the age.”

“Lord Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner and am separated from you.  I acknowledge that I stand guilty before you.  I also understand that
that I can be forgiven for my sins.  Thank you for giving your life for me on that cross for my sins.  I open the door to my life and
receive You as my Lord and Savior.  Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life.  I ask you to take control of my
life and make me the person You desire me to be.”

It is not a prayer that saves us.  It is believing in your heart the words you just prayed to the Creator of all.  Christ alone, the “One.”

God bless you, and though we may not meet in this life, see you in Heaven.
