Five Minute Friday ~ Lonely
Hallelujah it's Five Minute Friday time! I really needed to write tonight so instead of completely missing it or hurrying to join in at the last minute I was ready and waiting for the prompt to post tonight; and this prompt seems as if it was chosen just for me. Here's just a glimpse of what is going on in me but its message is for any who have walked a similar path.
Today's prompt~ lonely.
Because sometimes the world just weighs heavy on your soul. Because the push and pull of life and living and waiting and change pull so hard on you that it feels as if a cosmic storm has erupted beneath your skin. Because you've prayed and prayed and yet the only word you hear is "wait." Because sometimes, no matter what you know of things that others are going through, it does not make your own burden carry any less weight. Because night comes in so dark, sometimes you begin to wonder if the sun will ever peak over the horizon again. Because you're clinging, so desperately to your last tiny shred of hope that someone, anyone is out there listening. Because you feel as if you're all alone~ whisper- no SHOUT these words.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom 8:38)
Shout it my daughter, because even when lonely wraps its talons so tight around you and threatens to squeeze the very life out of you, YOU. ARE. NOT. ALONE!
No matter how dark, how dreary, how painful, how heavy life becomes, there is one who died so He could walk at your side. When lonely comes to call, call out to the One who loves you more than life.
