The Loneliness of Loneliness

Updated: Apr 25, 2020



Oh how in the LONELINESS OF LONELINESS

GOD does HIS best work

as I think about the Apostle John

who was exiled to the island of Patmos,

just because of his love of JESUS that he was spreading.

There he sits

in his NEW NORMAL

in

the LONELINESS OF LONELINESS

in the forced stillness in his life

when something happens that breaks the silence.

JESUS BREATHES

into his lonely still spot

and speaks the

REVELATION of TRUTH

through his angel to John.

Oh the REVELATION~

the DISCLOSURE

the APPEARING

the MANIFESTATION

of what is to come

that speaks volumes into the

LONELINESS OF LONELINESS

when no one else is around.

But JESUS

meets you in that

sweet spot

that you have been exiled to~

this forced stop

that actually is our

SAVING GRACE

because all we have

is HIS SAVING GRACE

that speaks volumes into

"such a time as this"

and more times as this

that will show up differently~

yet one as the same

as they are called

trials & tribulations

that we are told to rejoice in.

But not because we are so happy

that they invaded our lives,

but because

HE invades our life in the midst of them.

And then something happens

as we have a

REVELATION

that brings us beyond our

Emotions

&

Anxieties

&

Fears

because

HE speaks into our tender hearts

with a whisper

that penetrates through our being~

"I love you now, just as I have always loved you and will never stop

Invite ME into those broken places and spaces

so that I can fill them

with more of ME."

Oh the silence of the LONELINESS is broken

with the whisper above all whispers~

THE BREATH OF GOD

upon our souls

that whisks away all unwanted emotions

because we know

that HE is above all things

and that all HE wants us to

do is to BREATHE into us HIS WORDS

that are so alive

making us so alive

even in the midst of the

LONELINESS OF LONELINESS

when all you can see and feel

is your three persons of me, myself and I.

But then HE shows up with HIS 3 PERSONS

and oh how filled you are

as you sit

in your NEW NORMAL

just as John sat

when JESUS showed up

because JESUS always shows up

because HE never left.

Oh the Silence of the

LONELINESS OF LONELINESS

is broken.

Oh DRAW CLOSER to HIM

& BREATHE HIM IN

for

for HIS BREATH is

the "AIR THAT I BREATHE" (listen to the song below)



Revelation 1:1–2 (NIV)

1The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,

2who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.
