I would say that I’m an introvert and an extrovert, but regardless of whether you think you are one, the other, or both, I think it’s essential to have some time alone. For some people that may be very enjoyable and for others maybe not so much. The fact of the matter is that people need space from time to time and for me being able to go on a drive through the mountains is very therapeutic.
As I look around and see all of God’s beautiful creation, I’m reminded that all of my frustrations in life can easily be replaced when I choose to be loving and ask the Lord to fill me with grace so I can extend that grace to others. The things in this life that bring us pain are only temporary, they are nothing when compared to the eternal life we have waiting for us in heaven with our creator.
I encourage anyone who reads this to take time to be alone with God, tell Him about your frustrations, and ask Him to give you a new perspective toward those things that frustrate you. This is a very effective way to combat the enemy and his plan to bring division into your home.
This verse comes to mind often when I take time to be alone; it reminds me that God is in control, that He is with me in my day to day struggles, and that I can trust His plan.
