I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
— Jack Kerouac
“Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?” – Rose Kennedy
My whole life I struggled with loneliness. I have been often on my own. God feels far away sometimes. He feels out of reach. Sometimes getting myself to read the Bible is difficult. Praying feels suffocating. I feel all alone. But I compare my faith to a candle. When I am engulfed with loneliness the light is still there. The light flickers on and off because it is struggling to stay on. However the faith is still there. It just sometimes looks as small as a mustard seed. According to God that is more than okay.
