Have you ever stood in a crowded area, and looked at the faces of people around you and wondered; what people might be thinking of or going through? How many of us put on a brave face to hide what’s really going on inside of us; the emptiness of feeling alone in our situation. We live in a society where it’s every man for himself or survival of the fittest.
Life can bring us many challenges, that can leave us feeling drained or should I say unplugged. We lack the energy or power source to move forward. I want to let you know that Jesus wants to be your power source. In John 10:10 Jesus states, “the thief comes to steal kill and destroy, I have come that they may have life and have it full.”
I remember going through a period in my life where I needed affirmation. To hear that I did well wasn’t good enough. It came to the point where if I didn’t receive praise for a kind act that I had shown toward someone, I became angry and felt unappreciated. I was like a cracked tea cup, the praise that I tried to fill myself with was never enough, it just continued to seep through my soul. My behaviour was one of emptiness that was affecting my relationships. The feelings I had, stemmed from a time in my childhood when I experienced rejection. God healed me from insecurity when I finally came to the realization that His love for me was all I needed to feel self worth.
Feelings of loneliness, rejection or shame to name a few, will leave you feeling powerless. Let Jesus be your power source, he wants to energize you to do the good works, which he prepared in advanced for you to do.
