Lonely, Never Alone

// I find myself rather lonely at times. And although lonely, never alone.

I’m consistently reminded that God not only is with me, but goes before me.

I’m a year into relocating. Yet sometimes I find myself still feeling ‘new.’

As I continue to meet new people, try new foods, discover new locations.

Sometimes it feels overwhelming.

This brings me to my writing prompt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I find it hard that my support system no longer comprises of my family or long term friends.

And yet, I find it refreshing.

It’s refreshing to know what there is a new community rallying around my little family.

From catching rides to sports practice and games, to sleepovers, the “Minnesota nice” has shown itself.

It is hard to describe how grateful I am for complete strangers to have our well-being in mind.

From BBQ invites, to holiday parties, the unexpected support has been such a blessing.

It’s just another example, manifestation, of God’s goodness and faithfulness.

So although I feel lonely, I am never truly alone.
My long-term support is a call, text, or even an email away.

My new physical support is a “hey I need help.” And God sends them running.//

    It is hard moving somewhere new and being far away from people who have supported us in the past, but I’m glad you’re finding a new support system and people who will help you when you need it. Visiting from FMF#12.
