I am struggling with feeling lonely and isolated lately. Feeling like I don’t have any close and true friendships, despite working at and praying for it for years. I have also been feeling very inadequate as a wife/mother/home maker/Christian/person in general. I go through phases of feeling God close to me, and then feeling like he is not there. I’m in one of the “not there” seasons. So pray that I can remember truth and that my feelings will line up with that truth, and that Truth will lead me instead of my feelings and circumstances. Also pray that our family could find some close, lifelong friends that feel like family..friends we can enjoy life with, grow with, cry with, and live out our faith alongside. We call them “refrigerator friends”… friends that feel comfortable enough at your house to open your refrigerator and help themselves, prop their feet up on your coffee table, and take a nap on you couch. It’s been a very long time since I have had friends in my life like that.
