I have to remind myself when I don't feel loved, appreciated or known in my face-to-face life that I have some awesome and close friendships through the internet. Just because they are through the internet doesn't mean that those aren't real friendships- I feel like the people I know on the internet know me better than anyone else! I can honestly say that. Most people in face-to-face interactions and friendships have not given me much of a chance to express myself to them. I never feel comfortable enough or good enough to show them the real me. I can express myself so much better to those people through the internet than I do to the people I come in contact with everyday. I'm so glad that I have met the wonderful friends through blogging since they have helped me get through hard times and shown me what real friends are!
Today at church I felt quite alone and everyone else had a friend and someone to talk to, but I was left in a corner and ignored (like normal), but I have to keep reminding myself I have the greatest friend.......God! He is the greatest friend I could ever have, and even though He may not be physically seen- He is with me and I don't need anyone else. I don't need to be popular, beautiful, or meet expectations that others expect for me....I just need to be who God made me to be and be an example for Him. Everyone seeks friends and wants to be approved (me included), but if we are a Christian, we already have all we need! We have God as our Father, Savior and also as our Friend. God accepts you and loves you. If others don't accept you- know there is one person who always will. He sees how others treat you and He knows what you are going through. He faced rejection and wasn't very popular either. He can relate to how you are feeling. I'd rather have someone love me for who I am inside than who they think I am or what they want out of me. God always will love you just for who you are inside- no false love. :)
"Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions"
"When people hurt you over and over, think of them as sandpaper, they scratch and hurt you, but in the end you are all polished, and they are all used up."
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Thanks for dropping by today and I hope that you have a great week!! : )
