|Being alone at night can |
be a time of creativity.
Thinking can be a good thing or a not so good thing. It depends on our perspective. When some people are alone at night, sometimes they let that time get the best of them. It's nighttime and they're alone -- the two things some people don't like at the same time. Nighttime is ok as long as there's someone else with them and being alone is not so bad as long as it's in the daytime. Pair them together and that makes some uncomfortable.
"Darkness and light are separate. Don't get it twisted. It's the way the Lord set things up -- it was no accident. Another thing about the darkness is that it doesn't last long, the light always follows, and the light stays with us. That's right, did you know that even in darkness there is light? Yep, there are just certain things we can't see even when they're there. Another way to put it is God is always here, there and everywhere."In gist, being alone at night can be a productive time if we allow it to be. We have to monitor our thinking though. Instead of laying around feeling sorry for our lives and inviting somebody we don't like or like too much in (which can bring worse situations for us), why not just find the things we love doing and do those things? Using that time can birth some great things. If you love reading, read. If you love writing, write. If you love nursing, go to YouTube and study nursing videos. If you like music, practice. If you like scrapbooking, make some scrapbooks. And while you're fine tuning your craft, write down your goals. Write down what you want God to do with your gift. Write down how you can make a living from it. God will give you so many ideas. The moon is the limit in the things you can do in that quiet time. It's a creative time you can use to hear from God about the direction for your life. Consider it a period of meditation, not one of isolation or loneliness.
It's a great time with no distractions.
