Comment on Learning about loneliness from my students by Van Walton http://vanwalton.com/2013/10/23/learning-loneliness-students/#comment-1596 Thu, 24 Oct 2013 12:49:52 +0000 http://vanwalton.com/?p=1514#comment-1596 Love it – your reflection, that is. I too carry on two conversations at a time- one with those around me and one with the Father who is always with me! What a treasure we have!

Comment on Learning about loneliness from my students by Mary T http://vanwalton.com/2013/10/23/learning-loneliness-students/#comment-1595 Thu, 24 Oct 2013 02:12:18 +0000 http://vanwalton.com/?p=1514#comment-1595 Van, although it doesn’t happen very often, there are times when I feel alone or lonely, which can be two different feelings, e an I. A crowded room. Typically this happens when I am in the midst of a situation that is making me sad or with people whom I feel do not see things quite the way I do. During these times, there are moments where I just sit back quietly and wait for the time to pass, but there are also moments where I immediately begin to discuss the situation with God. It is in these moments that I feel lifted up and stay an active participant continuing to express my concerns and voice my opinions… with a great confidence and peace in knowing that the Holy Spirit has given me back my voice, His voice and assuring me that I am not alone nor should I feel lonely for He is with me always, until the end of time. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to reflect!

What if each time you chose to step out to touch another and in turn be blessed you were to break one more link in the chain that keeps you bound to doubts, low self esteem, and loneliness. I am asking God to give you confidence to break through your walls. I am asking God to placing his loving hands on your face, to turn your eyes toward Him and away from feelings that lie to you. Let’s reach out with God’s blessing to nurture others while He nurtures us! I love you for being vulnerable and willing to share your deepest thoughts. Many would not even step out like you have.

Thank you for your words of encouragement and for sharing.

Comment on Show me the one by Carol PR http://vanwalton.com/2013/10/16/show-one/#comment-1588 Thu, 17 Oct 2013 12:55:46 +0000 http://vanwalton.com/?p=1511#comment-1588 Van, Thank you for sharing this story today. God is apparently moving in a special way. About 2 months ago in prayer I was given the thought to pray each day that God would put the people in my path that I needed to meet. Like you, it has been an amazing adventure! One day I went to a store with 2 entrances…..as I was parking I noticed I was at the wrong side of the store from where I wanted to shop & considered changing parking spaces…..but felt compelled to park where I was. When I entered the store….there was a friend I had not seen in a long time. We had a lovely reunion! If I had entered the store from the other side I would have missed her, as she was leaving as I was entering!! Then there was yesterday when all my time-scheduled plans went a bit awry……and I arrived at my destination later than I had planned. I went to see an artisian friend at his booth. A lone female tourist was there asking about the town…..from his directions & the blank look on her face I knew she’d never find anything he was suggesting for her to see. So I offered for my husband & I to be her tour guides for the day. What a wonderful blessing it was for all of us. We gave up our hurried, task-driven day to enjoy a relaxed refreshing walk around town making a new friend. I urge others to join in on this new thing that God is doing to reach & touch His world. Let Him bless others through you……and you will be blessed too!
