Alone

"Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room and your not speaking..."

So I'm honestly not the kind of person who needs a lot of alone time.

Or any really.

If I could spend my life constantly in the presence of the people I love, that would be just fine with me.

This possibly might stem from the fact that I don't like the way my brain goes into overdrive when I have been given too much time to think.

But on this journey of life I think we are faced with different paths and different struggles. Sometimes we travel with a companion, and sometimes we have to travel alone.

Trips are much more enjoyable when you get to travel with someone else. But I think we all have a point in our lives where we have to make the journey our own.

Not to punish us, but maybe to strengthen us. Maybe we have to walk alone for a while to figure out who we really are. Maybe we need to see what we are made of. Maybe our priorities are out of whack and we need this time to get things straightened out.

Whatever journey you are on at the moment, whether it be your own journey, or walking with a companion, I hope you are letting the journey grow you. I hope you are refusing to stay where you are, that you are moving forward and learning and becoming more and more of who God wants you to be.

And at the end of the day, even when I feel alone... I know that I am never alone.

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
