I find that we all want to understand what we can do when facing what seems to be at times an onslaught against us mentally and Spiritually. This can be true for those who have dealt with the thought of not being loved, as I did as a young boy. In my situation then, I could not believe or accept that God loved me. This can be especially true if there were negative feelings, actions or thoughts that could prevent us from moving on towards wholeness.
From my Author’s Notes page:
Last year at a conference in Orlando, Florida there was a speaker who spoke on those who felt alone, this thought rocked me to my knees almost. My heart was pounding, my head reeled, as I almost started to cry uncontrollably, as I have shared on my “birth-dad” earlier. He motioned to the people to reach-out and see if anyone needed to be ministered to. I caught myself looking around the audience and saw a young boy being comforted by a couple of ladies, at first, I thought it best to let them console him. I started to walk towards him and had no real “plan” of what to do next. As I looked at him and the ladies backed away, I found myself hugging him and saying “I love you!” We just seemed to connect at that moment, - though I could have been his grandfather -, he replied back, “I love you too!”, as he just stood there smiling and seemed very happy. His Mom said, “this is so new to him!”. He has never had this experience before! She had no idea how this has affected me to this very day!
