Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD God is an everlasting rock.
It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

I thought by now I would understand myself to the point where I know how I like to show my love to others. Turns out I don’t, still. Love languages? Don’t see it. I wonder if I really do love others, because if I did, I would want to know them in a deeper way, but I don’t show any sort of curiosity or interest about them. I don’t directly ask things that I’m interested to know about because I don’t know what I want to know about them. Specific questions don’t come to my mind. What is wrong with me? I feel incapable of fully loving anyone.
…which makes me wonder about God’s love. I don’t deserve a love like His at all. I don’t show interest in knowing God more intimately. I’ve always taken face value, a more holistic picture, of a person and appreciated that. But to know the little details of someone - that never crossed my mind for anyone, not even God.
So I’m sorry I hurt you. But I’m sorry for myself the most. I’ve failed myself. I want to change. Or at least I want to know my comfortable expression of how I love someone. I think I love. But if I don’t show that I want to know more about someone, do I really love?
My Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really understand myself,
and the fact that I think I am following
your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.
But I believe that the desire to please you
does in fact please you.
And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.
I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the
right road, though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore will I trust you always though I may
seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.
I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and
you will never leave me to face my troubles alone.

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
