You are Not Alone – Coffee for your Heart

holleygerth.com 

I missed last week due to some serious computer issues.  But this week I am so thrilled to joining up with Holley Gerth again.  This link up is ALL about you. So take a break from the laundry and the to do list, grab your cup of coffee and find a comfy spot and be encouraged. 

You are not alone.  I promise.

I have been where  you are.  Feeling as if someone flipped off the light switch and left you alone in the dark.  I’ve sat in the shadows and heard the whispers of lies that tell you this is a better place, that no one really cares.  I’ve been where you are.

You are not alone.

I know what it’s like to feel desperately lonely.  To feel like there is not soul in the world that will understand or could possibly know what fear beats frenetic in you. I’ve felt the same fear.

You are not alone.

I know what it’s like to wrestle with doubts.  When the whole world screams perfection in one small Pinterest Pin or Instagram moment I know what it feels like to have envy creep up and feed those doubts.

You are not alone.

I know what it’s like to feel the wet of tears on my cheeks.  The ones that appear for no apparent reason and you just wish you could shut them off and along with sadness.

You are not alone.

I know what it feels like to finally reach out.  To finally whisper “I’m not fine” in someone’s ear only to be turned away time and again until… Someone looks you in the eye and holds your hand while sobs wrack your frame.

You are not alone.

It’s time my friend.  Time for you to uncurl in the darkness.  There’s a sliver of light dancing across the floor and where there is light there can be no darkness.  Reach your hand out, let your fingers play with radiance.  Feel the warmth of light upon your skin.

You are not alone.

There is no darkness that He himself has not experienced.  No doubt, no fear, no insecurity that He himself does not understand. He is curled right next you, arms wrapped around you and His glory is filling you.

You are not alone.
