Growing in Every Season of Life
Growing in a Season of Loneliness

"It is not good for man to be alone." Genesis 2:18

The Final Days of Paul's Life

But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you. 6  As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my death is near. 7  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 8  And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing. 9  Timothy, please come as soon as you can. 10  Demas has deserted me because he loves the things of this life and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus has gone to Dalmatia. 11  Only Luke is with me. Bring Mark with you when you come, for he will be helpful to me in my ministry. 12  I sent Tychicus to Ephesus. 13  When you come, be sure to bring the coat I left with Carpus at Troas. Also bring my books, and especially my papers. 14  Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm, but the Lord will
judge him for what he has done. 15  Be careful of him, for he fought against everything we said. 16  The first time I was brought before the judge, no one came with me. Everyone abandoned me. May it not be counted against them. 17  But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength so that I might preach the Good News in its entirety for all the Gentiles to hear. And he rescued me from certain death. 18  Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.   2 Timothy 4:5-18 (NLT2)
