Are there days that you feel all alone? You wish for someone to keep you company; to be with you every step of the journey that we call life. You want someone to do things for you even without asking them to. You want someone to listen to your problems or how your day went. You want someone constant in your life; someone that won’t leave. They see how bad things get, but choose to stay every day. They know you aren’t perfect but love you just the same. Someone that will make you feel special. You want someone to give us genuine love.
You already have that someone. That someone is God.
God always keeps us company even when we feel all alone. God watches over us in everything we do, good or bad. God gives us more than what we want; God gives us what we need. God gives us strength when we are weak and afraid to carry on. God is the listening ear we want after a bad day. God is the shoulder to cry on when we can’t stop the tears from coming. God knows we aren’t perfect but loves us as if we are and never asks us to be. God made us all special in our own way and makes us feel special each day with our own lessons to learn.
We get upset with God when we don’t get what we want, but we forget to thank God for giving us what we need. We blame God for our bad days but forget God’s responsible for the good ones, sometimes the best days of our lives. When we put ourselves in tough situations, we blame God instead of taking full responsibility for our actions.
God’s love is a privilege that we shouldn’t take for granted. God gave us so much more than we’ll ever deserve, but we can try to earn it.
We can start by talking to God. We need to thank God for the blessings of each day; see the silver lining of every situation. Tell God how our day went and our plans for the next day. Take the ideas of what we need to do and put them into action for God’s greater glory. We need to aspire to be like God; love like God. We need to love others without any reason to; no hidden agendas.
Love for the sake of loving. Help people up, not pull them down. Everything we’re going through is all part of God’s plan; we need to trust in God. Sometimes we have to take a leap of faith first and the trust part will come later because everything will work out in God’s perfect timing.
