I didn’t say it. The Word of God said it. I was taking a break from my packing and took a nap. I’m not resting well, so I just rest when I can. But I woke up and this post hit me. Not even sure of what I want to say.
Well in Genesis 2:18 it says:
King James Version (KJV)
18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
I was thinking about being alone and how some people seem to be content that way and then I thought about this verse and I thought, God knows better than us. But let me talk about me.
I’ve lived in Florida for nearly 8 years and I would say I’ve spent the most time being alone since I’ve lived here. I don’t have a lot of family and friends around here, so in a way I have been forced to spend more time alone. But it’s not something I like to do. I am not uncomfortable being alone and doing things alone, but I am definitely more of the type to be around people. If I could have made the choice, I would have married young and had a lot of kids. That is how I grew up and I like having a lot of people around. Yes, the TLC show “19 kids and counting” looks like fun to me.
But there are people who don’t mind solitude. I have a family member like that. She lives up the street and honestly if I don’t call her, I won’t hear from her. She has hardly any friends, no husband or children and seems content. But to me that is NOT an appealing life. I would go crazy.
My phone is my lifeline since living here. I have two people that I talk to more than once a day in my life. My best friend and one of my brothers. I’m the type to invite ALL of the family over for Thanksgiving and cook for everyone and would be so happy at the end of the day. I envy the Italian and Greek cultures who are very tight knit. That is what I would love.
I won’t do well with a mate who is anti-social, unless he doesn’t mine having a sociable wife. I am not going sit in the corner with just him. At some point, we will have to have our families over. The truth of the matter is, I agree with God. It’s not good for man to be alone and I think sometimes we don’t recognize it until we have who God intended us to have. 😉
