How I've been changed

by Mattanah

My mom and dad split up and my brother and I moved away with my mom to a different state. Through long, hard years of bitterness and healing in all of my family's lives...including mine, my parents remarried. I was excited about the whole change and my dad being back with me, but I found myself always lonely and upset....wanting my mom back. I felt neglected and forgotten. Mom didn't mean to not spend time with me, but she didn't realize that I had an emotional bond with her, and her getting married was like me losing her. I prayed and asked God for comfort and understanding, and of course, Mom explained to me that she still loved me the same she just had to make room for somebody else now. It was an eye-opener for me. I had to learn to make God my source of comfort and peace rather than people. I was still loved just as much, but in a different way, and I believe that God wanted to become the main person in my life and used my family to help. If you are feeling lonely, afraid, or unloved, just remember, that God will always be your best friend.
