Everyday Feeling Lonely
I was lonely. God knew. But I also know 1 Peter 5:7 too where Jesus says, “Give Me all your cares. I care for you.” Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.
It was my third son, of the four, who helped take me away from my party with “Pity.” 17-year-old Joey let me have a movie date with him and I picked “Pride and Prejudice.” I know. Halfway through the movie I asked; “Joe, will it always be this way?” What mom? I was referring to a bruise on my face that just wasn’t disappearing like I wanted but deeper down I was asking; “Would this season of wait and lonely weirdness ever leave?” Joey replied, “Mom it will always be that way. It will never change.” And then he grinned in his sweet Joe way and said, “Mom, you’re being silly. Of course, it’s gonna be fine. It’s just a bruise. Why ask?” Because I need to hear out loud there’s hope, the belief that things will get better. So, I’m talking to you too. It will get better. There’s hope…everyday.
