I’m on day three of being snowed in, with no discernable end in sight. Seven months ago I went through an awful breakup. I’m a stay at home mom. All of these things create this feeling that I don’t really have any connection to people outside my house. There has been a new nagging feeling that has just popped up in the last week or so that I can’t trust people. Specifically people who know my ex. Although I don’t know why he would care about anything I say or do at this point, still I have this nagging feeling that people go back and tell him everything I say to them.
But a louder voice comes in and reminds me that the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). The devil wants to destroy our connections to other believers. He wants to isolate us so that his voice is the loudest one, and the only one we can hear. My God created me to be in community. To connect with His children. To connect with His lost children. I believe in God ordained meetings and that soul connections are often forged in the quiet places of life where they are least expected and when you aren’t looking for them. The next time the devil is telling you that you are all alone, you just tell him who you belong to and that you are never alone.
