I’m unsure what lies ahead. Truly, do any of us know? Things in our daily life can change in an instant and our lives disrupted of the boring norm that exists. I know at times life does get monotonous and joy seems so far away, as it happens.
Thankfully, I am not dealing with a loss in a death but it sure feels like it some days. Perhaps, I am at this point because I had so much of an attachment to someone that in order to recognize and stop this process, God had to rip this person away. How mean that it is of Him to do! While I understand, it still does not help my coping at times. He is a jealous God.
With that, we are not to be jealous of others but that scripture say He is. Isn’t that contradiction? Again, I understand that He Is because He Is and my faith in Him is of utmost importance but my mind has problems unraveling the idea of this jealousy.
All through my life, I have attached myself to others for their direction, wisdom and care. A child with emotional neglect will undoubtedly reach out searching for such and rightfully so in order to feel loved and cared for. Recognizing this now in my adult years, I do understand why I did it and still lean in that fashion. Childhood issues lurk long after childhood, causing adult issues and some all the way to the grave.
Losing yet another support person in my life is like the rug has been pulled out from under me. I feel lost, lonely and grasping at air to hold on. Sometimes screaming within and even aloud, ‘I need you.’
Along with childhood issues, trust in many was limited and still I let very few in my world. Acquaintances perhaps to enjoy laughter but not to know my heart, only a select few. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, as we need to be selective.
As I faced a hurdle just recently, I don’t know what to do or where to go, what steps to take. What I do know is to remain still and allow God to position my steps and my way. This time in waiting is painful and lonely. At times, I feel anger rise up. All of these emotions are normal. With Him, I scream within and aloud, ‘I need You.’
