Grappling with the feelings of being alone – even among a crowd – illuminates a longing of every heart and is really pointing us in a direction we might not even be looking.
I remember when I was first faced with these feelings and struggled to find answers. What was God’s design In the Beginning?
A part of the healing journey is rediscovering our Humanity. As we change, grow, and heal, it is as if we have to rediscover – Who am I? As we shed our old ways and are born anew, there are some fundamental truths we all can come to rediscover about ourselves, our relationship with God, and others.
Let us journey in the discovery of God’s beautiful design for humanity in light of Pope Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.
“But by the grace of God I am what I am” 1 Cor. 15:10
