At This Moment
I am finding when I write blogs or even chapters in my book it normally relates to something going on at a particular moment. Whether it is something in my life or something I have read on FaceBook that triggers a thought process, it is usually a moment by moment thing. As I write I feel inspired by God what He wants me to share. Sometimes it is my own lessons to be learned and I share with others who may be going through something similar and sometimes it’s because of what someone else is going through. Life….moment by moment. Where are you at this moment?
I read today where someone I know was feeling depressed and discouraged; as if no one cared at all. This feeling I can relate to as I know that everyone else can as well. We’ve all been there. It isn’t really a pity party, if you will. It’s a feeling of emptiness and loneliness; physically alone and spiritually empty. Then the tears begin to fall. Some consider that weak, I don’t. When tears begin to fall it’s because we have reached a point of letting go and then God is allowed to step in and do His work. I have felt this a few times within the last year simply because I no longer have my mother to talk to. I know my husband and other family members love me but there’s an emptiness within me without Mama.
I write about this today because I don’t know how many others may be feeling this way. First, a little reassurance ~ you are not alone. We have all felt this way. Second, yes, as you’ve heard many times over, Satan attacks you at your most vunerable times and would like for you to “think” that no on cares. Ah, the father of lies strikes again. Your heavenly Father is always with you. There are times when we don’t “feel” His presence, but He is still there. Feelings come and go ~ you just need to allow this one to pass on by. The song “Tomorrow” says it beautifully ~ “The sun will come out, tomorrow…” and it always does. Even if it is raining the sun still exists just like the Son is always with you.
As a final note ~ you may feel like no one cares but think of the cross. My friend, that is love. Jesus died a horrific death because He loves you and cared for your salvation. When He was alone on the cross He thought of you. In His Word we are told that He came for the brokenhearted. Hold on….pray. Know that you are loved more than you could ever imagine.
