I lived my life in isolation even though I lived in some of the biggest cities, Chicago, Atlanta and Jacksonville, but now that I’m getting older, I really realize that being alone just doesn’t cut it. However, Jesus seems to bring me back to the place where it’s just me and Him. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, it just leaves me lonely a lot.
I’m finding that my beliefs are more radical and odd to most people around me. I find my friends’ list keeps getting shorter everyday. I’m not interested in a lot outside The Lord and what He wants me to do. The world has gone crazy and I find I pray more heavily. He’s drawing me closer but that means feeling lost when I had gotten used to having more social interaction. It’s something I have to get used to. Sometimes, Jesus has separated me from people or things that I held onto too close. And, if those things sway me away from Him, then that’s not good anyway.
But why I ask are more Christians not really Christ-like? It seems that what was thought to be biblical and not up for discussion is now optional. When I state that I still believe and live what the Bible says, it’s weird to someone else. However, I can’t embrace this world’s values. It pulls you away from the truth. And if I have to feel lost, better to feel that in the world than with Jesus. In the end, what He says only matters most.
