So, I know I’m like, super late, but I’ve been reading through some of the older posts both here and in Vy’s topic, and I’ve actually been kind of angry about it. (not at you guys, of course. XD) As I was reading, I was surprised that many of you guys directly stated the exact things I’ve been feeling lately; out of the loop as far as the forums go; alone here and in the real world. Entirely worthless. Now, I know this isn’t true. But for some reason, I felt this was the truth in each moment when it was brought to mind, rather than trusting in the truth and the adoption of Christ. I didn’t feel this way at all times, but every time I did, I let it sink in, forgetting who God is.
You guys, this isn’t even a rare feeling in general. This is an identity crisis. At the heart of all these fears and worries, we believe the lie that our identity in Christ as a child of God is false. In actuality, this is what LGTBQ is. Boys and girls alike are being attacked on the basis of identity. You see, this is one of the main things the devil can’t stand. We are children of God, we have an identity in Christ, and satan doesn’t. He hates that. If he can twist our identity, he can stop us from moving forward; us being more focused on our inward problems than others.
Everyone, at some point in their lives, feels lonely. In an effort to fill that loneliness with things other than God, they search out other fake religions, people, and things. Even if you find a kind Christian who cares about you more than anyone else in the world, that loneliness can’t be filled. Why? Because we were designed from the dawn of creation to be with God. We need him. And He loves us. If you just take a moment to ponder on just how much He loves you, you’d be floored. He is jealous for you. He loves you with an immense, passionate, infinite love, and He has adopted you as His child. Just think about what that means. We fell short, we sinned, we messed up, we went so far as to kill Him, and He covered us with His endless love. I mean seriously, you can’t get any better than that. Guys, He loves you so much. Whenever you feel alone, worthless, afraid, jealous, or not enough, just remember how much He loves you. Spend time worshipping or talking to Him alone each week whenever you can. You don’t even have to turn on any music. Just hang out with Him. He is more than enough to fill loneliness and destroy doubt. I can’t emphasize this enough; He loves you.
