I am an extrovert, in the strongest sense of the word. There is not one inkling of introvert or shy or reserved in me unless God allows me special grace of humble self-control (I am getting better at that). People know immediately when I enter a room, not because of my beauty but because I am usually laughing or talking or loud in some way. Not obnoxiously anymore (by the grace of God) but just how I am made.
My view of people is that all people want to connect with at least one other person (or more) they can trust and relate to. I also believe strongly that every person alive wants to connect with God, their Maker. That desire is intrinsic. When you speak nicely and respectfully to anyone, they at least smile and appreciate your show of respect even if uncomfortable with speaking back. And of course, once a friend, everyone is happy connecting with people when they feel safe.
That is my view of people concerning socialization and connecting. I am not sure what it is worth but I just want everyone to be unafraid to express themselves and connect socially when a good opportunity presents itself or read the Bible (Mark or Luke is a good starting point) and get connected with God. No one has to be lonely ever. We are all so very loved!😄❤
I know a lot of lonely people. Some people get married because they don’t want to be alone. Some people tolerate toxic people in their lives to keep from being alone. People get depressed and mostly because they feel alone. Feeling alone causes sadness, grief, sorrow, hopelessness even. Loneliness is harmful, detrimental even.
The truth is that we are never alone. Lonely is a lie from the devil. Sometimes we are alone with God. We can only enjoy the benefits (peace, joy, love, comfort, etc) of God’s presence when we humbly open our hearts and line of communication with Him. The moment we do that, He rushes into our hearts to provide love and comfort and let us feel Him there. Yes, may be some time and prayer before a beneficial person is provided, but His spiritual presence is no less real.
Lonely is horrible and a lie. Alone with God is beautiful and the truth! You get to choose!!😄❤
We do not live alone. Ever. God’s presence and Spirit is already everywhere. That is because He is omniscient, meaning everywhere at once. Only with God is this possible. So any feeling of loneliness is our purposeful misacknowledgment if His presence, a willful choice to be alone.❤
Not sure why, but lately feeling homesick. I want to be around family and my aunts and cousins and home town and sister and nephews and neices. I miss everyone. I miss my good friends. I miss everyone. I was okay being far away for a while because I had a lot of healing and learning to do. Now, I miss them. I am healed and have learned and want to go home. There is the problem, this is my home now. My husband does not want to even visit my hometown and in fairness, I had never given an indication before of needing to. So, I know we will all be together in heaven and probably not before at the rate this world is moving towards Jesus’ return, but just know family and home church and friends that I love you and wish I could be with you! God bless you all! ❤
The little school girl came home from school and did her chores alone. She played her piano and weeded the garden and mowed the lawn alone. When she was finally finished, she ran with her dog through the field and ran back and sat on the top of her grassy hill, alone with her dog. She returned home at dark and cooked for her family. They ate separately in front of the tv and she did the dishes alone. She packed her own lunch for school the next day, showered and went to sleep alone. Day after day was the same day with mild variations. Alone, alone, alone. She worked hard though no one uttered a “well done” or a “good job”, just further criticism. But the thing is, she was never really alone spiritually. God was always with her. God was her companion and Heavenly Father. And God kept her company. She just had to keep remembering that. She had to keep praying. She had to see Him in what He made and remember. ❤ ❤ ❤
