On the road to recovery and healing, sometimes we have to say goodbye to the people and bad habits that kept us trapped or stuck in our season of inactivity and negativity. And often, when we let go of the people and bad habits that once held us down, we realize that we centered our lives on people and habits that did more harm to us than good. We look at our lives and see no one; it may seem then that you are on the road to recovery and healing alone.
This reality can leave a void in our lives.
The void is real.
Most persons find distractions and enter unions and commit to projects to fill that void. The truth is — no hot and fierce new love interest, no great project or epic distraction is able to fill that void. That void can only be filled by God.
Only God can fill that void with healing, comfort, purpose, strength and beauty. And many times, we may have to get involved in things that are of an interest to us or experience and explore new things, places and people to truly assist us in redefining ourselves, redirecting our focus and finding God and His will for our lives in productive, pure, life changing ways.
You can speak to God about every feeling that you are feeling. God is not turned off by the emptiness that you feel within…seek Him in prayer and worship and Christian fellowship, even when you do not feel to do so eventually you will realize that the void that once consumed your life will be filled with God’s Holy Spirit and consuming love.
And may I remind you that we cannot trust our feelings most of the times, we can only trust the things and results that are revealed to us by God…so if you measure the height and depth of your void today and it seems larger than the day before, you may “feel” hopeless and discouraged but seek God again…seek God continually and trust in His promise to fill your deep emptiness…Romans 15: 13, “I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace while you trust in him. Then your hope will overflow by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Trust in God knowing that your healing and restoration can never be truly measured by mere feelings but only God’s revelations and words.
