Hurting Flowers (Excerpt from An American Millennial)

2010

By Garrett Larson

It’s almost like a supernatural distance that is there and real, but it goes unseen by the eye. Sometimes I don’t feel like talking to people. They don’t understand a lot of my process the past few years. I guess I don’t either. I know my goals – but that is sometimes all I know when I wake up. Knowing your goals is kind of a huge deal in and of itself. You have to keep in mind that you need to run your own race and there are different seasons of life and some days hurt and some days have flowers you did not expect. It can be hard because you find yourself just kind of sitting there and you feel alone. Maybe you are alone. We all know that you can sit in a room full of people and feel alone too. Even if it’s just your close friends and or family. You can feel that way for some reason. I really am being stripped down and I am not sure why, but I am. God is with me and I feel Him there or know He is there and sometimes He is distant. That is faith. Having faith that He is there, even though we do not see Him and always feel His presence. It’s hard though. The disciples were with Him around the clock during his ministry and witnessed miracles. They really did not need the type of faith we need now.
