Musings From A Musical Mind

This blog post is the one that gets looked at more than any of mine – and that’s saying a lot since I have over 500 posts now.

I find that the reason for this is simple: People are lonely. They do a search on google for words like, ‘Lonely’, ‘forgotten’, ‘I feel forgotten’, etc. and my post pops up. It has been curious to see this happen over the last year – from people all over the world who stumble on my blog.

I wish I had all the answers and all the wisdom to provide when posting something like this – but the sad news is that I don’t. But I do know someone who does. His name is Jesus. And when I was going through a sad and dark time – not too long ago – and there didn’t seem to be any answers – or any relief for my sadness – He was there with me all the time. The Bible tells us that He is ‘closer than a brother’ – and that in itself is so comforting to me – because I never had a brother and would have liked having one.  He is ‘like a brother’ – patiently sitting by my side until I was ready to open up the deepest and darkest part of my heart to Him. And He will do the same for you – give you some support and validation for your feeling of isolation – whisper to you in the dark times and be an ever-present help in your storm. I know this first hand – because He did for me.  And ‘like a brother’ – I am safe and confident in His love and affection for me – no agenda – no games – just pure adoring love – ‘like a brother’.

When you have that kind of love and connection – you are never alone.  People may leave you – reject you and walk away – but He never will.  And that’s so important to hang on to – sometimes it is the only thing you have.  A brother who loves you – will never leave you, hurt you – or abandon you.

I am praying that in your really dark days – you will reach out to this friend – who is ‘closer than a brother’ – and know that He really sees you – He really cares – He won’t abandon you – He will wipe away those tears and give you a purpose and a reason to go on.  I am praying that you will not give in to negative self talk – and voices in your head that say, ‘it’s not worth it – no one understands’ – and remember that someone does – and you aren’t alone – He is as close as a whisper of His name.

God Bless

I think that sometimes we can feel left behind – forgotten – cast aside.  Sometimes it is a feeling based in reality – most times it is not.  It is important to know the difference. Sometimes the “blues” are just the “blues”.  I was reminded of a great Karen Carpenter song from the late 60’s called “Rainy Days and Mondays” – where the lyrics say this: Talking to myself and feeling old Nothing is really wrong Feeling like I don’t belong Hanging ar … Read More
