So today I was narrating a story to my sister about this long held fear I’ve had since my teens – dying alone while living in a granny flat with a bunch of cats.
I have nothing against people who have chosen that life, it’s just not for me. The unintended consequences of this fear was that I ended up staying in toxic relationships just so that I wouldn’t be that granny.
Then, through His love, God started showing me that He was enough. He showed me that I would never experience loneliness since His promise is to NEVER leave nor forsake me. Considering that He is sovereign and that He is not man that He should lie, I believe that promise.
People are great to be around but there are moments when you just want to be alone with your Creator. It’s the safest psychological, spiritual and emotional space I know. With Him I always walk away better than before I entered into His presence.
I no longer fear ending up alone because as long as I am with Him, I’ll NEVER be alone. Just as I am He always accepts me without condemnation. I don’t know any human who can do that ALL the time.
It is for this reason I’ll forever love the song “What a friend we have in Jesus”. I urge you to just read those lyrics and tell me if that is not what each of our souls longs for?
Be blessed always 🌸
