Lux Thinking Aloud
Hello, Loneliness!5:48 PM
It is in our loneliest that God speaks the loudest.
Hello, Loneliness!It's been a while, huh?
What brings you here?
I didn't miss you. I didn't call for you. What on earth are you doing here?
Me? Oh, I have been very busy,
I have been out there, meeting friends, serving others, working hard, planting my seeds, resting only when I have done enough or when I am too tired to go on.
I am now living my dream. The feeling is like walking out in the field like David with only a sling in his hand to face the giant Goliath. It is scary. But if you know you're not doing it for yourself but for those who need to read God's message through you, you conquer any fear that creeps inside your heart. The fear of being ridiculed, the fear of not being good enough become irrelevant.
When you know that God is only using you as a pen to write His message for His children, a laptop and ideas are enough, just as a pebble and a sling is enough weapon to beat the most notorious enemy that is Fear.I bet Fear belongs to your family too. It tries to stop me from becoming the best that I can be the way you do.
I have been doing great in your absence.
Why did you come back?
Why are you reminding me again of what I have lost? Why are you nagging me of the could-have-been and what-ifs that I have learned to leave behind? Why are you making me question my decisions, when I have seen time and again that I did the right thing?
Haven't you learned your lesson in the past?
Dear Loneliness, you can't keep me down for a long time. You will never win this fight.I have accepted my mistakes. I have forgiven those who hurt me and have forgiven myself too.
I have learned to enjoy my solitude.
I have found myself in your frequent visits. I have discovered my strength when you weakened me.
I have learned to live with the pain and find happiness even in your presence.
In your strongest sting, I have heard God's voice. I have felt God's love snatching me from your evil clutches.As you empty me, taking all that I have, I have learned that Christ is enough for me.
So although I have you to thank for the many beautiful things that is happening in my life right now, here's me slamming the door in your face again.
Hello Loneliness, my old friend. It's never good to see you.
Goodbye and please never come back. You're not welcome here.
