There are seasons in our life where we feel absolute loneliness--feeling unheard by both God and those in our lives. The promise of Jesus is that he knows this loneliness, and experienced it through his incarnation. When we feel ourselves in this space may we turn to the one who never leaves us, because he, too, knows the pain of feeling unheard.
To the God who listens, who knows the depth of heart
and the pain that entraps me in lonely moments,
let me stumble upon your revelation around me today.
Let me be drawn closer to the heart of the Incarnational Christ,
who knows the pain of feeling unheard.
May I be seen and heard, and know that you are with me always.
Take time today to do something for yourself that brings you joy. Remember that the joy you experience--no matter its size--is a reminder of God with you.
