“Oh what grace…oh what peace to know that you are here with me..”
This week has been a challenge to endure emotionally. Until this week, I did not realize how easy it is to depend on man for such things as validation, joy, security, entertainment, intimacy, etc. One day, when driving to work, I found myself sadden by the thought of being alone. As I reflected on how I’m not currently dating anyone and barely have time to visit with friends/family due to various circumstances, I began to feel more lonely than ever. Then, immediately, the Lord began to minister to my heart.
Briefly, God informed me that he has been right by my side within every moment of my life. He began to reveal to me my habits of holding on to relationships that were never in his plan for me, but I held on to these relationships all because of the fear of feeling alone. God went even deeper into informing me about myself by giving me a revelation that I have a tendency to hold onto relationships with people whom are in close proximity to me. He revealed to me that the only person creating the illusion of him being so far away out of reach was me. Therefore, I was led to his word that reads in Matthew 28:20 “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (AMP). Even when I did not chose God but instead I chose others he informs me in John 15:16,”But I have chosen you and I have appointed you and placed and purposefully planted you..” (AMP). So I continue to push through the remainder of this week knowing that I am not alone , but God is with me for eternity. I chose God as my source of contentment.
“So bring on whatever…you make all things work together.. ALL THINGS GET BETTER.”
