About a week ago I hit a wall. I felt incredibly alone, unloved, unwanted, and misunderstood. It’s during these moments (days or weeks), when I feel like God doesn’t care; like He’s not listening to my cries or see my tears. I feel like He’s walked away during my time of need.
Then I remembered that His word says:
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow–not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. (Romans 8:38)
And I realized that He’s always with me, no matter how I feel. If I feel alone, I’m not alone, because He’s right there beside me! If I feel unloved, I’m not unloved, because He loves me! If I feel unwanted, I’m not unwanted…He sent His son to die on a cross for me because He wants me! And I’m not misunderstood; He alone, understands, my hurts, fears, and deepest desires.
I am truly blessed to have a relationship with the most loving, loyal, wise, and intimate friend a person can ever have.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? (Psalm 8:3-4)
