When we’re in the midst of trials and tribulations, it can be very difficult to see the purpose and/or reason for them… especially the circumstances that cause us to be alone. You know what I mean? Those times in our lives when we feel and are completely alone – friends are gone, or can’t be counted on, family is gone, and you find yourself in tears more often then not, simply because you feel like you’re out there all by yourself.
A friend of mine called me for some Spiritual advice the other day about a guy that he like… and how much he didn’t understand why it’s taking sooooooo long, etc. My response, in short was; “Perhaps this is your 40-day fast”. When Jesus went into the mountains for 40 days/nights, he was there preparing Himself for Greatness, for His PURPOSE. If we look carefully at some of our situations we will realize the same thing… We’re preparing for our own greatness. 40-days may not be literal, your 40 days may be going on a year now – a year of celibacy, a year without work, a year without friends or family… it could be even longer then this… But just know that you’re going through the purification process to becoming the TRUE YOU!
You’re never alone because you’re always there. :0) I like that.
Have a Blessed Friday and Weekend. LOVE Ya!
