A Piece of Candy
Sometimes we feel alone in this big world.
We think no one understands, people can't relate, or folks just don't care. Many times we run into people that show such characteristics that cause us to give up on God and the goodness of humanity—including family. Yet, God reminds us that He is with us by providing little pieces of candy! Candy, you wonder? It’s a saying my children’s Godmother explained to me years ago when I was in an awful mental and emotional place regarding my health. She said that while you’re going through a situation and it feels like no one can relate or God isn’t listening, He will send you a little something to bring a moment of comfort and remind you He is here.
You might be thinking,
“Where’s my piece of cand?”
Let’s take a moment to examine our situations. Has there been times when something happened that brought some comfort or ease during hard or lonely times?
You know the ones!
Someone did or said something kind (rather or not you accepted it is a different story). That person who spoke a kind word, paid for your lunch, let you merge in their lane while driving (that’s a big one for me), your kids miraculously didn’t get on your last nerve that everyone else seems to want to tap dance on, you get a positive report that should have been negative, and so on. Those are pieces of candy God gives us. Though we rather He come down and tend to us personally, He does so in many other ways, and one of his significant ways is to use us, imperfect humans, to help one another. It keeps us connected to each other because He doesn’t desire for us to ever feel alone in this world and certainly doesn’t want us to believe He isn’t with us.
Many times things happen that brings us to a low place within ourselves, but God will never leave you. So, let’s not give up on each other and definitely not on God. When you’re next piece of candy comes your way savor it and know God’s with you!
Remember, let's reach back and walk life together!
