The Lone Ranger

So I was talking to a friend tonight about loneliness... what that feels like, how we try to avoid it at all costs, how painful it can often be. But tonight we tried to look at it in a new light, give it a new name.

Perhaps it is an invitation?

An invitation into weakness. An invitation into dependency, an invitation into the deepest, most intimate relationship we could ever step into. Perhaps loneliness is God's way of calling us to Himself. Perhaps it is God's way of interrupting our seemingly "controlled" lives. Perhaps it is His way of revealing His divine sovereignty and purpose in our every waking second.

Perhaps?

Something to think about, I suppose.
