Just Looking For a Friend
This is the time of year to experience "Joy to the World", even though this often doesn't happen for many. A hidden thief works its way into our very being with thoughts of rejection and failure. The anchor to this emotion is "disappointment"; and it is also the beginning of "hopelessness". The first one is legitimate and the second one is not; but the first leads to the second.
God does not give a song without a meaning, nor a vision without a cause. Stay just as true to the visions in your heart as you are to the lyrics of the song, for they are both from God. God called Ezekiel to preach to Israel for years; and then God said "By the way, they are not going to listen to anything you have to say." So what was the deal? Was God after the converts of Israel or the faithfulness of Ezekiel to God?
If you are reading this, it is obvious that you love God very much. Just be faithful to listen to His heart and to sing His songs. He is just looking for a friend. The rest is up to Him.
