A. W. Tozer writes in his book From Man - The Dwelling Place of God in Ch 39 titled -The Saint Must Walk Alone
The loneliness of the Christian results from his walk with God in an ungodly world, a walk that must often take him away from the fellowship of good Christians as well as from that of the unregenerate world. His God-given instincts cry out for companionship with others of his kind, others who can understand his longings, his aspirations, his absorption in the love of Christ; and because within his circle of friends there are so few who share his inner experiences he is forced to walk alone.
The unsatisfied longings of the prophets for human understanding caused them to cry out in their complaint, and even our Lord Himself suffered in the same way.
He searches for friends upon whose garments he can detect the smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia out of the ivory palaces, and finding few or none he, like Mary of old, keeps these things in his heart.
It is this very loneliness that throws him back upon God. His inability to find human companionship drives him to seek in God what he can find nowhere else."
Oh God of heaven, you alone understand the depths of emotions that so often fills my soul. Thank you for allowing me a week of connecting with true sisters of the heart. Thank you for the gift of a sister who walks with me in understanding. Father there truly are so few, but I treasure the rare gifts as you bring them.
