I need prayer

I have a request for anyone willing to add me into their prayers tonight. Today as I was scrolling threw my Instagram, I found that my ex has a new profile. I stumbled upon it and clicked on it, I really shouldn't have. We recently broke up on February 22. He abused me; physically and mentally. He made me feel so worthless and honestly made me hate myself.
Though in the end it was God who saved me and got me out of the darkness.
Though when I clicked on the profile I saw pictures of him and his kids and.....his already new girlfriend. This may not seem like a big deal to some but to me it was like my heart got ripped out and served for dinner. I gave five years of my young life to him and now it seems like he could have cared less. I walked around for a month with a black eye and still tried to be a good women. I now realize that I was living a horrible sinful life and I am way way better off. I have found God and threw Jesus Christ I have been forgiven for all the horrible things I did. Though I can't help but to hurt a little. Maybe it's because of all the pain I went threw to make this man happy and he already has someone else. I don't want him back but I need peace and prayers. I am very excited to see what God has waiting for me, my true destiny! I have put everything into gods hands! I have prayed a lot for healing and strength but I think asking for some help is a good idea too! Thank you for your time all who reads this! I just need some prayers for healing and I just wish God could take all the memories away

God will always love you and never abandon you. You are His daughter and He will protect you to some degree, but will also push you to get stronger and be the woman you were meant to be. Be courageous, God has your back. Glad to pray for you!

Thank you so much for your great advice! I guess seeing the picture was just a way of God showing me this man wasn't meant for me.
I know it sounds crazy but at times I would still sit and wonder if I made a mistake by leaving him. For most people it probably would be a no brainier to leave someone after they have physically beat you. Though I always tried to be so forgiving and love that man, that's what Jesus would do right?
Though still after I left I sat and wondered if I made a mistake, like I was suppose to try and work it out with him. I was worried I was missing my destiny, though I know God has a way better plan for my life. Seeing the picture might have hurt but it was good to see that he wasn't what my destiny was.
The man God has for me is just around the corner I just have to have faith in him and he will make all my dreams come true!

Can anyone help me to know why I feel certain worries or anxiety or why would things like this bother Me? I posted this thread last night and I still can't shake the image in my head! Please anyone who has a moment please pray that I may be delivered from the feelings I had for that man and be able to move on. I just want to forget him completely, can God take all the memories away?

God doesn't take our memories away while in this life, not sure about the next. Those memories are important, the good ones to give us rest and joy, and the bad ones to help us to learn how to avoid them in the future. Its a fallen world and we have to be wise in our dealings with its fallen nature. Memorize your favorite verse(s) and repeat them either aloud or in your mind if you need to. Repeating them over and over while those feelings, worries, and anxieties beset you, you can literally crowd out those bad thoughts with good godly ones, the one I like to use is

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not in your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He WILL direct your paths.

This you can trust in, its from God to us, and He never lies.

God is always lovingly leading us out of things that are unlovingly leading us into pain.
When I come into a situation I feel is beyond my capacity to handle or even fully understand I ask God for wisdom.
I may need to go into the deeper issue of what I felt this person supplied that I now feel lacking.
Do I need outside confirmation that I am worthy of love because I really don't find that confirmation within myself?

You are worthy of love because God is love and he created you.
I'm praying for you and asking that God give you revelation,wisdom,peace,strength and joy.
Godspeed.

James 1:5 Now if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God, the One giving generously to all and not finding fault, and it will be given to him.
According to this verse God is not going to point out fault but give you wisdom.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

The word tempted can also be translated as trials or tests.So it's saying that every test is common to man just like the need for air is common to man,so common means we all face this test.

James 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;

James 1:14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.

God is in control but he is not the source of our temptations,trials or tests, our desires are.
Just like you understand you can't keep someone you love prisoner to please yourself God desires our love but does not demand it.
God is love and love does not demand it's own way.

1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
1 Corinthians 13:5 It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
1 Corinthians 13:6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth
1 Corinthians 13:7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


God does what love does because he is love.
Trust me he knows how you feel because he has your image on his mind and he just wants you to love him.
He won;t tell you that religion has given him a bad rap(love does not even defend itself) so I will tell you that religion has given him a bad rap.
He is working to get the truth to you and he knows that the truth will set you free.
He just wants what you and I want,to love and be loved, believed and trusted.
Since he does not force himself on anyone we need to give him a full invitation into our heart and mind.
Godspeed and peace.

Let Go and Let God...
One thing I have learned from all my disastrous relationships, and there were quite a few, is the resentments I carry will linger and fester, and they will rot inside of me until I am willing to turn them over to the Lord. Resentments have a way of keeping the past alive, and not allowing me to move on; they have me so focused on what others did to me I cannot see what I am doing to myself by hanging onto it.
So I have to forgive them; and the way I do that is by praying for them, those I resent; asking the Lord to extend the same Mercy to them that He has graciously given to me. I do this on a daily basis until I can feel the sincerity in the prayer and the Peace that only comes from the breaking of the chain of resentment.
My own experience with this can attest that it is easier said than done. When it was first suggested to me to pray for those I resented I recoiled at the idea. but I also made a commitment to do what it took to change, so however hesitant, I began to do as suggested, and before long what started as "God forgive that worthless bleep'' began to take on sincerity and substance, and I could feel the release from the stress and anxiety. And I understood the Freedom that forgiveness gives to me.
So I suggest you try the same. Give all the resentments to the Lord, present them to Him for His Judgment; and if His Judgment is to extend the same Mercy He showed You, accept that, and let it go.
God's Peace

I am praying for you sister. Expect a miracle from God, but don't
try to define or describe that miracle ahead of time. God will handle things His Way in His Time.
