Have you ever lost yourself? It’s a scary place to be. I floundered after my husband Ron died, and it’s taken me quite a while to find myself again.
Mentally and emotionally, physically, socially and even financially, I didn’t know who I was because everything in my life revolved around being part of a couple.
I heard a TV message about this being our best life. The speaker insisted we choose happiness every day.
“Let’s see you lose your spouse and still say those same words and mean them,” I shouted.
That frightened me. Where did those thoughts come from? I believed God’s best for me, didn’t I? In the past I learned that when the way is rough, our faith has a chance to grow.
I needed to find out if that still held true in my worst moments.
God says He loves us and insists His plans are the best. All He asks is that we trust Him and willingly follow his path even in our worst circumstances.
In the depths of my pain I found that I was truly never alone for the Holy Spirit was with me always.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. (John 14:16, KJV)
Prayer- Lord, thank you for always being with us, especially through the difficult season of Christmas. Amen.
