from our Ministry Directors, Jonathan & Mandi Windsor
Jonathan and Mandi have been married for over 7 years. Jonathan served in the Army for 7 years and deployed to Iraq for 3 combat tours, at 12 months apiece. Mandi assisted her husband the best she could after he returned home from war; but months later, Jonathan was re-diagnosed with PTSD. Together, God led them through a process of healing that battled against PTSD and eventually conquered it. They now have a strong desire to help those who struggle with PTSD, survivor’s guilt and depression due to combat and trauma related work fields. They believe there is hope and peace to be found through the power of Jesus Christ.

Have you ever felt alone? As much as I have enjoyed time with family and friends, I have still felt alone over the years. I can remember during my rebellious season, when I was running from the Lord, that I had many moments of loneliness. No matter how hard I tried at the bars or with drinking as much as I could, it never satisfied those feelings.
Loneliness is not uncommon with most individuals. We can be completely surrounded by people but on the inside we are crying out. What can be encouraging, however, is that even Jesus experienced loneliness. While He was on the cross, He cried out, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me!” Jesus is quoting Psalm 22, but He was also genuinely feeling alone at this moment. When He was dying, taking on ALL sin, becoming sin for us, He was then separated from God and felt true loneliness. So here's the good news-- we can always be encouraged by the words that God promised in Deuteronomy 31:6, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Because of what Jesus did on the cross for us, we are never alone! Psalm 139 talks about this too, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’ even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.” (vv 7-12) In the comfort of our loneliness, we should remember that the Lord is always there. He will always be there. The Bible says that ALL who call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:13, Acts 2:21). You are not alone. My hope is that you know that the Lord Jesus loves you and cares for you. You will never be forgotten by Him, because if His eye is even on the sparrow (Matthew 10:29), then know that He is watching over you.
