a feeling of disconnect & incompatibility haunts me from time to time . It's a feeling I've struggled with off and on since I was a child . Now that I am growing stronger in Christ and less in the world , that feeling of loneliness is trying to rear its ugly head . talk about wrong timing . One can feel lonely even in the middle of a crowd , center of attention . my struggle has always been feeling like there's no one out there to get me or understand me ... I'm definitely off and I know that ... sometimes I'm totally secure in it , but the times when I'm not , I begin to feel lonely . so I'm praying for more confidence in ME and my likes, my interests, my opinions, my lifestyle, etc.
Therefore let us draw near with confidence
to the throne of grace,
so that we may receive mercy
and find grace to help in time of need.
