Behind the Scenes Life

Hello Everyone, I am writing this while listening to The Enchanted Garden by Kevin Kern so I thought I would attach it to the post just in case you would like to listen to it while you read. This video is not mine- I just found it on YouTube : )

Do you ever feel like you live a life behind the scenes and you never get noticed or nobody cares for you? I feel like I have been living this type of life lately and I never feel loved, realized or noticed. Everyone else has something major going on in their life and all my issues are minor compared to everyone else around me. I feel like I always get pushed aside and never seem to find that love or care I see everyone else have. The only place I seem to feel that is through all your comments and encouraging words on my blog and the emails I receive. So thank you all for that- you all are truly what keeps me going!

While I was reading in my Bible tonight I came across these verses, I really enjoy the book of Psalms, so most of my favorite verses come from there-

Psalm 25:16-18
"Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish. 
Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins."

107593878567139543_coenns52_f_largeI felt like these applied to how I was feeling and I could relate to them. And even though I may feel alone and nobody seems to care I know that God does! He sees my heart and loves me just the way I am. He will never push me aside and say I'm not good enough. He will never ignore me or reject me for doing something stupid or saying something wrong. But He will always hold me and love me in times of trouble and times of happiness. God can be your best friend if you want Him to be- He is the bestest best friend you can have because He is always there for you and will never think you are dumb. When I am lonely I know I can go to Him in prayer and He listens to how I feel. And when nobody else is around who cares for me- I know that He is there with me, standing right next to me listening and waiting for me to talk to Him.He doesn't get angry when you don't talk to Him for awhile but opens His arms graciously and waits patiently for you.

Sometimes I think God allows us to not have anyone around or allows us to feel lonely so we go to Him and seek Him more than if we had someone there with us for us to tell all our feelings to. But I do know it is hard not having a person there to talk to face to face with when you need it most. It is hard not being able to talk with God face to face and seeing Him and just hearing His voice reminding you that it is okay. But I am longing and hoping for that special day when I will see God face to face and hear His voice say my name!

Sorry that this is such a long post, but I felt like I just needed to share some of my thoughts. Hopefully if you have felt this way you can relate and feel encouraged by something I wrote.  :)
Have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. Great Post, Britt!

    I've been going through this time too right now, with not having really anyone. This post has opened my eyes to see that maybe God wants me to turn to him more.


    P.S. I really liked your idea for the fruit of the spirit photo contest. :D

  2. Hello Godsgirlz- thanks so much for your comment! I'm sorry that you feel alone- it is never a good feeling :( Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Oh, glad you liked the idea for the photo contest :) Thanks for your comment!!

  3. Would you be interested in doing a guest post on my blog when I'm gone to camp next month? You could do a music monday, wednesday's word, or thursday's theme or anything that you want as long as its godly. Please get back to be ASAP!


  4. Thanks Godsgirlz for asking! I would LOVE to do one!! Any of them sound good- but how about a Music Monday? Let me know if that works for you! Thanks for asking! :)

  5. That works, If you can just comment it to me sometime before June 22nd that would be great. All you would have to do is post the youtube link of the video in a comment then write a little something about the song. I'll then schedule the post for June 25. Thanks for wanting to do this. :) If you have any other questions you can comment and ask.


  6. Sure, that will be fine! Okay, great!! I will try to let you know soon :) No problem at all- I like doing this sort of stuff- so thank you! :) Have a great day!

  7. Fantastic post, Britt! Thank you so much for sharing. I love Kevin Kern, too.

  8. Hi Britt,

    I just had to comment on this post after reading.. "The only place I seem to feel that is through all your comments and encouraging words on my blog and the emails I receive". =)

    I agree that loneliness can help bring us closer to God. But lonliness is.. well.. lonely. I pray good comes from this hard time for you. After all, the Bible does say ALL things work together for good to them that love God.

    You have encouraged me much through your blog. I hope I can be an encouragement to you too.

    God bless.

  9. Aww...thanks so much Juliana for your sweet comment! I really appreciate you taking the time to make my morning! You are so right- loneliness does draw us closer to God! Thank you so much for your encouraging words!! You definitely are an encouragement to me all the time Juliana! Thank you for caring and understanding!!
