365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 5-Virginia Beach, Virginia:
Uncertainty and feelings of being alone through our struggles are a normal part of life. There is a void in most of our hearts that can only be filled by having a close relationship with God. We as humans have the capacity to love so deeply, but also just as easily are faced with a deep pain throughout life at various moments and can be hurt easily. Heartbreak and sadness do not have to rule our day-to-day functions and if we take the time to seek help we will discover a new faith in God.
All we have to do is reach out our hand towards the light that is shining all around us in order to have everlasting peace, especially during our greatest hour of need. God wants us to reach out for him in those critical moments so that he can answer our prayers. He does not want us to turn away from him, because he loves us so much. He loves all of us unconditionally no matter what. He never turns away from us or leaves our side. He is always here with us even when we fall. We just all have to believe, even when it does not seem real.
It is so difficult to trust God after a divorce, being betrayed and abused by a loved one, loss of a parent or child, or going through a family crisis. That is why during these times we need God more than ever. As we walk closer with the Lord our thoughts and actions are generally more productive and we can deal with turmoil more easily. Knowing that we have God in our hearts, in spite of our shortcomings, is what allows us to fly like an eagle in order to reach our full potential in life no matter the circumstances we are facing.
