Day 89-Homestead, Pennsylvania: Feeling Alone, Not For Long
The feeling that we feel when we are abandoned or left alone by a loved one can be very depressing. Though God is with us in every moment, having a human to touch or someone to talk to can be very comforting, especially after committing a period of our lives with a parent or loved one. Life is full of rejection and moments where we feel pain and hurt. The devil thrives on these moments and uses those circumstances to turn our thoughts into feelings of depression, hopelessness, and anxiety.
We have to maintain our faith and turn to God in those moments. Others may say there is no God, and if there was one why would He just let this all happen to you. These are people who have their own problems and like the old saying, “misery needs company”. We are all blessed and whatever we have to do to stay close to God we must do. Having a positive attitude is a great way to not submit to the desires of satan. In addition, praying to God allows His words to ring out loud and new opportunities to enter into our lives through Jesus.
The feelings that we feel in our moments of struggle are natural and can only be filled with the love from God that we receive through our faith. Some of the coping mechanisms that we use are over or under eating, disconnecting from our loved ones and friends, wanting to be alone, quitting activities that we enjoy, and giving up on a job or bills to just let go of all the pain, which only further complicates our problems. When events occur in our lives, only God can truly heal our pain. No action on our part can make us whole. When we trust God, our feelings are validated and we are presented with a solution through His divine intervention in our lives. Keep the faith and stay strong, because tomorrow will be better more times than not with God on our side.
