Recently I had a conversation with my best friend about how there are times we feel we are alone. Although we know that this is not true it is easy to fall into that thinking. The one who seeks to destroy our hopes and dreams is feeding us lies that will only lead to deeper depression. We won’t reach out to others because we believe the lie that says “no one cares or they would call/text me” or the lie that says “I am the only one who can get myself out of this mess I made”
I reminded my best friend that I was in her corner… I may be sitting in the dark, but I am there. We may not face the same trial or dark path, but we each know what darkness feels like therefore we are in each other’s corners. I am there for you. Let me be the shoulder you need to cry on, the ear to hear you vent, the friend to sound ideas off of, and the prayer warrior to lift you and your concerns to the Him who loves us.
My sister is writing her own blog (http://www.anonymitydesireslight.com) about life experiences ranging from growing up as a missionary kid to learning to be the best wife and mother the Lord intends for her to be. She reminded me that through every twist and turn of life she has learned that the one constant is that He is faithful. He is faith to hear of our hopes and dreams, He is there to listen about our day all that the struggles we face, He is faithful to provide just we need. We often may feel like we are alone, but we are not. He is in the rocking boat we call life. He is faithful and just.
Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
