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 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 🌸
