Have you ever been around a group of people but yet you still felt as though something was missing? So you say ok I feel lonely or alone I will talk to my husband more, go out with my girls, give more attention to my children whatever it takes to not be lonely anymore but you can’t seem to shake this feeling? As I tried to make myself as busy as possible it never dawned on me until I was reading my Bible and this scripture jumped out at me
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds
As I read this scripture, peace came over me. I said Lord, it was you that I needed to fill this void. God will bind up your wounds he didn’t say bandage it up put bind it that means it is sealed forever. God was using this feeling of loneliness so that I can draw closer to him. How is God calling you closer to him? Did you lose your job? Is your marriage rocky? Do you have a financial struggle? God is calling you he is saying Martha I see you are busy but please sit down and listen to what I have to say. We should never think that doing replaces alone time in his presence. Because I acknowledged God the loneliness went away.
Is God calling you to come and dine?
