- Proverbs 18:24
Now that I'm out of school and working, I rarely socialize. I do have friends and I do keep in touch. However, the older we get - the busier we are. I'll sometimes have all this time off and no ones available or vice versa. I'll get bored and feel lonely. My friends and I are not teens anymore where we had all this time to waste (waaaaah) or in college where studying (basically a nice way to say social club) would happen over pizza and gossip lol
I find that the harder I look for someone to be available to hang out with, that's the time God wants me to spend with him. I feel like he clears our schedule at times so that we can re-connect with him. Yet, we look in all the wrong places. I'm not saying everytime your friends aren't available, God is making them busy lol but I do think God wants to catch up with you.
I can be so busy at times, that I don't even thank God for another day. Just something to be aware of, next time you're feeling lonely or like you have all this time in your hands. Take it as a sign that God is speaking to you so that you can re-connect. Prayer is hard to keep up with in this world of alarms, reminders and instant gratification. It can sometimes even feel like a waste of time. But no matter how you look at prayer, it is an important part of life.
Prayer keeps us connected with God, safe from everything and spiritually sane. At times we look for a friend who will understand our situation or what we're going through. But why not pray about it and cast your anxieties on him? You'll feel better after and remember, he'll take care of it (1 Peter 5:7).
