Too Afraid to be Alone

In the video post yesterday, the poetess came to a conclusion that many of us ultimately fear. What if Mr. Right never comes? Instead of waiting for him, we, like the poetess, fill in the time and space in our hearts with counterfeit Mr. Rights. The precious time we could spend enjoying the essence of life through giving ourselves away to our purpose, we give away, as the poetess says, to “a cheater, a liar, an abuser and a thief.” Have you ever experienced knowing the person is not right for you but you just can’t turn back? We just don’t want to go back to being alone so we wait until they dump us, in words or in deeds. We fear loneliness more than we fear derogation. But if I can’t be with me, why would someone else want to be? I realized the me I longed to be existed outside of a twosome. Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” When I hung out with God, He revealed what would ultimately satisfy me. Loneliness became less of a problem and so did settling for Mr. Wrongs. What if God doesn’t give me a man? That’s a blog for another day. But, today if you haven’t tried hanging out with God, try a new approach. Let Him give you the desires of your heart. You never know. That may even include Mr. Right.
