Obedience, Relationships, Singleness, Soul Ties

Only He Can Fill The Voids

A year ago this month I ended one of the most UNHEALTHY relationships I ever allowed myself to be apart of.  I allowed this man to consume my everything, leaving little room for Jesus to have His way in my life.  At that time, I did not understand what it was or maybe I was just ignoring it for the two and a half years that we were together.

At the end of 2009, while talking to my cousin, I had an epiphany that rattled my spirit for sure…I realized that I didn’t like being ALONE!!  I started to reminisce and discovered that I had been feeling this way for a while and it was greater than just this man!  I never did anything by myself!  I always felt as if I needed someone there with me no matter what it was and because this man was willing to do everything with me I allowed him to. 

“I will never leave thee, or forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5)  The whole time I was nervous about being alone my God already knew my true feelings and was right there with open arms to comfort me.  I was so wrapped up in having a companion in the natural that I forgot that my spiritual Father was with me all along. 

After that chat with my roommate, Jesus told me that “He has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  (2 Timothy 1:7) So I pulled it together slowly and I did what needed to be done!  Over the next few months I started to pull away from this person and find my own with Jesus!  I had let the fear of being by myself take over and lose sight of who was in charge the entire time. God was the pilot and I was merely a flight assistant and once I started letting Him take control things fell right in line. 

Dear Daddy,

Thank You again for opening up my mind, body, and spirit to shed light on my situation!  I was in a very dark place and did not even know.  The enemy had so much control over me that I felt I needed companionship to fill that emptiness but in reality I only needed You.  You are my everything and I am content with knowing and believing that.  I ask that You fill any and all voids with your LOVE that surpasses all—that AGAPE LOVE!!!  What more can I ask for?! Have your way! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Ladies, I encourage you to realize the voids in your life that you are trying to fill with people and stuff.  Instead of using things in the natural, tap into the spiritual realm and EMPOWER yourself with the uncompromising message of Jesus Christ…it’s a wonderful thing!  Have a blessed week!

  1. Latasha,

    This is such a powerful blogpost. I truly appreciate the writing. You blessed me this morning. I have been going through a similar challenge in letting someone go that isn’t good for me at this time. I was empowered through reading this blog.

    Thank you for having the courage to share your story as well as the lessons learned. May God give you all the desires of your heart

    Be blessed!

    P.S. Latasha/LaTosha’s are always outstanding people! (smile)

    1. Thank you name sake! I battled for a LOOONNNGGG time whether or not to write this post…. all the way until an hour before the deadline! God just kept telling me that there is power in my story and that I needed to share it with everyone so finally I decided to be obedient. My advice to you is to keep God in the midst of it all because He will give you the courage and the comfort that you need to make it! Be blessed ma’am and just know that I am praying for you!

  2. I have found myself doing the same thing time and time again. Tired of being alone and scared to be alone… I feel like there is so much pressure to be a part of something that sometimes we yield ourselves to relationships that are unhealthy. In reality if we really trust God, he will give us all that we need in due time. Thank you!

    1. Your welcome Ms. Lundy! Lord knows I did not want to tell all but I knew that this is what God wanted me to do so I did! Apparently it was a blessing to you and many others so I am happy to say that it was not all in vain! Can’t wait to read yours tomorrow 🙂

  3. WHOA!!! Is all I can say. I remember being here. But mine lasted about 4-5 years. I too was scared of being alone and I know exactly how you felt when you took that first step. My relationship, although I didn’t realize it at the time, was manipulation. He made me think I “needed” to be with him. This is so freeing. I feel so free reading your post, while also feeling the power of God as He restores you and brings clarity. Thank you for being so open. This is a problem that MANY women have. Even right now I’m having a little emotional pout………but your words remind me that that God is ALWAYS with me.

    Thank you for empowering me today, I will remember this all day.

    1. I feel free just knowing how many people could relate to it and to think I thought I was alone!?! God really does work things out!!!

    1. Hey Nana!!! I just thank the Lord that I made it through to be able to tell the story! I can honestly say that it added credibility to my testimony and for that all I have to say is…. THANK YOU LORD!!!! Be Blessed Lady!

    1. Your welcome ma’am!!! I just feel even more blessed for sharing it with you and the rest of the ladies. I’m glad I was able to step on your toes and get you out of your comfort zone… Now we will just leave the rest up to God!

    1. Well Shawna I am glad that it was a blessing to you… Just make sure you empower yourself to do what needs to be done with Jesus by your side!

  4. Hey Tasha,
    You blessed me today because my situation is not a man but people in general and you are right, God is the only person that will never leave or forsake me, I’m learning daily that God is enough!!!!!

    1. Oh believe me Sheka I have discovered the same about a lot of so-called friends. That’s the beautiful thing about Jesus is that when He shows you something in 1 area of your life it will be certain to have a domino effect through out the rest. Not only did he remove that man but plenty of other people as well and I am COOL with it!!!

  5. Latasha, thank you for allowing GOD to use you. I felt that way for a many years and was in a relationship for a decade and GOD began to show me that no other people should be put before HIM! God Bless you and continue to allow GOD to use you as a Vessel!
