Pastor Bobby teaches that when you seek the Lord before you seek people; when you seek Him before you try and get other people to fill your loneliness, you will go into your relationships full of love and with something to give. Today’s message: “You Are Not Alone.”

I found this sermon to be particularly important. I also have experienced loneliness at times, for no apparent reason. As well associates and friends have also shared similar experiences. Their reaction includes filling that void with a new car, self destructive talk, low self esteem, frustration and disallusion with family and other relationship. I’d like to replay it over and over as a reference and constant reminder we are not alone.
We are so glad that this sermon blessed you, Norman. We are praying for you – God loves you and so do we!
