So, before I dive too deep into this, I just hope you all will take a little time to read this whole thing and to digest it a little. Ok so it seems like the past few years have been a roller coaster. One moment I am going up and having the time of my life and then the next I am going down and I feel alone. Often if I tell people how I am feeling it seems as if they don’t really understand. Before I go any further I want to clarify that Yes, I am a mess and I’m not even close to perfect (thank goodness), but I have, through All this, found Comfort, Peace, Joy, Happiness and Life in Christ. So, if you are reading this, you may be wondering if I am okay. The answer is ABSOLUTELY YES! I have never been better actually. I am writing this as an encouragement to all who either feel this way or have felt this way. Let’s be honest, life can get hard, I am realizing that now more than ever being an adult and all. However, this isn’t just for adults its for anybody and everybody.
First things first, God is the True Comforter, it is by and through Him that we will find True comfort. Something I say all the time is that if I don’t read my Bible, Gods Word, in the morning my day is done for, its wasted. Gods Word itself is comforting and when I can wake up and read it, my outlook on the rest of the day is drastically different. So, if these things (feeling alone), are real in your life, can I just encourage you all to get into His Word. What it has done in my life I don’t really know how to explain, but the fact that whenever I am going through a rough time I can flip to a Psalm and almost instantly I remember that I serve a God who is with me Always.
Secondly, we must go too the Lord in prayer. In my life, personally, I have found so much comfort in having the blessing and ability to talk to the Lord whenever and wherever I want to. So, whenever I am feeling alone or just like no one cares all I do is go and talk to the Lord. I guess I don’t really know how to explain the power of prayer, but I can tell you it is powerful. My encouragement to you is don’t hold back anything from the Lord. He loves you and He knows ALL that is going on in your life and truthfully, He just wants to hear you say it to Him. Ask yourself how many people listen to everything you say to them? Only ONE, that would be Christ.
Lastly, if I can plead to everyone for just a moment, please hear this, RUN TO CHRIST ALWAYS. This is something we don’t do anymore. Better yet I don’t do it. Instead, we run to the passions of the flesh, and I am the biggest culprit of this. I have failed miserably seeking fleshly passions and I can say with complete certainty that these fleshly passions will fail you every time. However, God will never fail you, even when it seems as if nothing is going right. The more we run after and seek Christ the more joy, peace, comfort and happiness we will find.
As I end this I want to reiterate the fact that I am the BIGGEST mess probably in this whole universe and every day I am facing new challenges and temptations that want to drag me down into a dark pit. (spoiler, they won’t win) There is Good News though, I’m not Alone, We are not Alone, God loves us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die the death we deserved, so that we would be completely forgiven and for those of you that don’t believe, don’t leave just yet, this Good News is for You too. God wants you too know Him and all it takes is for you to believe in Him and repent from your former self. (There is more that goes into after this step, but for now know that You must confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe and repent.) I pray that All would know this Good News. Now, I am blessed to wake up every day and Glorify my King in ALL that I do and tell of His Amazing News. That is where True Comfort is Found.
