Day 6: Un~alone


It wasn't until I could do life

ALONE

that I could live life.

I used to fear being ALONE

because that meant that I was

Abandoned

Forsaken

An Outcast.

A wee bit dramatic,

but that is what it felt like whenever I was ALONE.

because I

BELIEVED I was

Abandoned

Forsaken

An Outcast.

I didn't make this up,

as what we feel does come from somewhere

deep in your heart

for where something happened

or something was said

that gives you the message that you are

what you feel or you are what someone makes you feel.

But it wasn't until I was so ALONE

that I no longer was ALONE.

Oh ALONE is the sweet spot.

ALONE is being in the belly of a big fish!

IMPERFECT

JONAH

ALONE,

because it was the PERFECT spot

where GOD would get him

ALONE

so he would finally see that

you can't run away from the ONE

who wants to be with you.

ALONE~

when all you can feel is you and your breath

and wonder if anyone really cares.

And then something happens,

or should I say SOMEONE happens

as you have no choice but to

cry out to the ONE who has invited you to be

ALONE so it is just you and HIM.

Who would you talk to if you were swallowed by a big fish?

"In trouble, deep trouble, I prayed to GOD. HE answered me.

From the belly of the grave I cried, 'Help!' YOU heard my cry" (Jonah 2:2).

GOD heard JONAH ,

who performed so IMPERFECTLY

as he didn't obey GOD when GOD asked him to do something.

Instead he ran the other way.

BUT GOD still pursued him

because GOD'S will is for no one to perish,

even if you are running the other way.

Oh ALONE never felt so good

because ALONE doesn't exist,

because no matter where you are

GOD IS.

I thank GOD for pursuing IMPERFECT me,

even when I was running in the other direction

or I would have never

found the ONE who found me.

Because HE loves the PERFECTLY IMPERFECT PERFECTLY~

"Come and hear, all you who fear GOD;

let me tell you what HE has done for me.

I cried out to HIM with my mouth;

HIS praise was on my tongue.

If I had cherished sin in my heart,

the LORD would not have listened;

but GOD has surely listened

and has heard my prayer.

Praise be to GOD,

who has not rejected my prayer

or withheld HIS love from me!"

Oh cry out

and

LIVE UNLEASHED*

FORGIVEN. FAVORED. FREE.

because GOD LOVES PERFECTLY

the IMPERFECT.

"IS HE WORTHY?" (listen to the song below)

Oh YES or I wouldn't be ALONE with HIM right now.
