I've been thinking about everyone, everyone seems so lonely...

Reading some of my friends' blogs today I found that there seems to be
a sense of loneliness invading people's hearts. It surprised me to
read… to be honest I struggle with feelings of loneliness, or not
belonging, quite often. More than I would like to admit I find myself
overwhelmed with the feeling that my friends are all growing apart
from me and that no one really cares how I feel… and here I find my
thoughts and feelings echoed in the words of people I know. It makes
me wonder, are we all just wondering around hoping and wishing that
someone would reach out and break through the barrier of loneliness
that surrounds us.. only no one does because everyone else is hoping
for the same thing?

We are all so much together, but we are all dying of loneliness.
– Albert Schweitzer

What we don't let out traps us. We think, No one else feels this way,
I must be crazy. So we don't say anything. And we become enveloped by
a deep loneliness, not knowing where our feelings come from or what to
do with them. Why do I feel this way?"

Someone searching...

ace lost in the crowd
Feet wandering empty streets
Voice crying out loud
Heart aching with every beat

Someone searching
Searching for someone
Everywhere and endlessly
Wishing, waiting
Could there be someone
Searching for someone searching

Soul battered and bruised
Pride wounded and left for dead
Ears deaf to good news
Eyes tear-drenched and sleepless red

Oh I hear the cry
And I know the pain
Can it be denied that
everyone has been and will be
Someone searching

Love standing alone
Hands scarred by the nails of hate
Hope suffering long
Faith urging that its not too late

Someone searching
Searching for someone
Everywhere and endlessly
Loving, longing always there's someone
Searching for someone searching

Think the truth...

Self-doubt is the worst lie and the biggest waste of time. Don't spend a second in it.

You're arms are the arms that hung shining stars in deepest space...

I love being outside at night and looking at the stars... when I can lie down and marvel at the beauty God has spread out above me all the chaos inside me stills and I can momentarily feel at peace. The negative energy floats away and the lies I hear in the back of my mind are silenced. The world is empty except for me and my Savior and he listens patiently as I pour out my soul...
