They were together, packed in a crowed room. Laughter bounced all around and voices filled the air. Smiles shared from one to another Her green eyes searched around. People buzzing here, there; talking and joking around. Everyone seemed busy and like they fit in.
Looking. Seeking. Desperate. Wanting.
Inside she wanted out. She felt so alone. “How can I feel so lonely with dozens of people milling all around me? she wondered.” She wished for something to do to make herself useful. Feelings of worth come with doing and contributing.
It happens. You know? You’ve felt it too just like she did.
If you are a Christian too, what would you tell her?
– Is she thinking too much of herself and not others?
– Should she push past how she feels, toughen up and just start talking to people?
– Should she leave and go somewhere alone and talk to Jesus a little bit to hopefully come back more confident?
– What would you say?
