Often in life when chaos, pain, grief or trials are happening, it may be hard to believe you are not alone. There could be several people around you but due to the way you perceive in your mind that no one cares for you, it is hard to let anyone in. It may feel easier or you may feel secure with just keeping whatever you are feeling to yourself. I want you to know that I have been there through the death of my parents, friendship lost, and during trying times it was easier for me to go into isolation then to believe someone really wanted to know what I was going through. I learned over time through praying, reading God’s word that he is always with me. That he cares about what concerns me and that he is always waiting for me to come to him and share what’s on my heart. I also learned that I do not have to fight whatever I am facing that is hard alone.
You may be wondering well what helped you? I learned through God’s word about me that he loved me more than I could ever love myself. I learned through prayer that his presence will always meet me when I come to him with a sincere heart open and ready to receive him. I begin to understand through my relationship with God that he is always for me and that he would always be there to dry the tears, from grief, pain, and life’s trials and tribulations.
I want the same for you, if you are in a space where you feel like why me? Why am I experiencing this or that, why won’t anyone listen? I want you to allow yourself to unmask and free yourself from thinking your alone. You are always on the mind of God. No matter what you have gone through or what you are experiencing there is a freedom in knowing that God is concerned about what concerns you. You won’t always feel down and you can find peace by being in relationship with God and he will calm you in the storms of life.
Below are scriptures I read repeatedly working my way through trauma and scriptures I still fall back on when I need to remember that I am always on the mind of God. May you build your relationship with him even the more and remember you are loved always- SpeakTash
