Anyone who is close to me and knows me personally, knows that I have been faced with an impossible situation, over the past few months. At times, I've felt totally alone.
This is not the first time I've felt like this. In the past, I've had many, difficult trials. Some that have even destroyed and/or hurt relationships. I know that it is only by the grace of God, that I have survived. After all, I am only human.
Okay, you may be thinking I am carrying on about nothing, but that isn't the case. I truly mean it. And, if you knew me personally, you would understand.
From time to time, in the midst of any trial, people sometimes feel alone. I'm no different than anyone else. There are times when I feel alone.
Eventually, reality always settles back into my heart and mind. Sometimes sooner than other times, but it always happens.
I thank God for this, for this is when I realize that I truly am not alone. God is with me, always. Especially, in those times, when it seems that life is impossible.
Here is a video entitled, C.H. Spurgeon - The People's Preacher: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvgcqDTc6vg&feature=share It's not short, but well worth watching.
One thing is for sure. I know that no matter how many trials I have in life or how severe they are, I must admit it. I cannot make it, alone.
From time to time, I have been ridiculed.
When I'm put down, by someone who feels the need to chastise me, I realize that person is usually someone who doesn't truly understand. Or, possibly does not have the love of Christ in them.
It's okay. I forgive, when I need to. For I know that there are those who just do not understand that there are some of us who suffer in life, more than others.
I need my Lord, Jesus Christ. Without Him, I'm nothing. With Him, I know that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).
There is more I need to say about this, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. See you, then!
Until next time...
