Is Gods love all that you need to sustain you?This is one of many things I have struggled with over the years Yes, God ispresent in our lives, but as a human in this very human world, if you are alonewithout family, how do you handle it psychologically and emotionally? Yes, wehave our friends, but it is not the same In fact, I have friends who do treatme as family, but the fact is I am not really a true member of their family When its 10 oclock on a Tuesday nite and you feel down, or if its 3:00 on aSunday afternoon and youre at loose ends, who is there for you really? So,if there is no one down here who cares if you are happy or sad or anxious orexcited, or had a success or had a failure, who cares if you are sick or hurtor down or up, if you dont really matter to anyone, well then, do you matterat all??? And yes, of course there isGod, but does it take a saints faith to have that be enough, or at least be someonewho is of saintly proportions? I dont know, I find it hard, because at leastfor the present moment we are in this world, and it is difficult to wonderfullypossess such abiding faith so as not to be taken down by the loneliness andalienation and rejection that one can feel in these moments
So, what if (God excluded) . what if you matterto no one? .
