Good Evening everyone. I am currently going through many trials and tribulations and have been for the past year. Earlier tonight i received some terrible news and it seems that all things are lining up in the wrong direction and the weight of it all is depressing and has caused me to break down and cry several times. I did not know what to do at first but I realized that the Lord is here and he is watching me to see what i am going to do. May you all please keep me in your prayers as i ask God to bless me with strength, patience, and love as i go on about my weeks and try to overcome the things that are in my life right now. I was raised in the church as a little girl and used to enjoy going, but lately it seems as my passion for God hasnt been at its highest point for a while and im trying to get back on track and acknowledge him for everything he does in my life for he does it with purpose. I want the filling of God and his blessings and may i achieve eternal love from him and find my purpose in his plan. God Bless and Good night.:rolleyes:

The Lord is here and.....[ He wants you to look to Him and see what HE is going to do]....that`s the beauty of it all (sometimes the only beauty to be found ) the Lord says HE will work it all out...our job is to simply trust Him enough to follow His leading (that should take some pressure off your shoulders)

But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me...2 Timothy 4:17

Sister Confused spirit, Not at all knowing just what you are having to deal with,I hope the Lord in me,will give you hope,with the words i have to say to you. Being young as you are has both its ups and its downs. When I was much younger such as yourself,I looked to relate to others in my OWN way! Doing all of this before ever knowing how to relate to Jesus in my own life. Feeling and emotion look to run my life,and like you perhaps, the feeling one gets from the Lord,is that I am not even worthy for him to hang around me! And those i once placed trust in, and thought they truly cared about me,were false,so now I was in a place where my own way is not even possible! So now what?

Is my lot in life to become a doormat for people to walk all over me now?? And how can I ever speak to someone again I can even hope to trust? This sister went on for quite a while in my life,because to be honest,I was to lazy to care anymore.Unlike you I am sure! Finally at age 22 after two ours in Vietnam my life truly hit bottom.I did not know it at the time sis,but I was finally in the right place for God to minister to me! And he did,teaching me once again from a starting position,what my life is, and why it is in the poor shape it is in!

To be rather blunt and to the point,here is what I learned.( psalm 118:8!) But YOU have to truly believe not only in me,but walk through my Spirit, so that you can once again function with others without any fear! For if you are not fixed,through my love, and power, then neither can that which is outside your control look to ever become in true balance in your own life! You also need support!

Find a church full of love,where everyone who has a need can depend upon another to help carry there load for as long as they may need it!( gal 6:1-5!!) This should be the mindset of all. next,Do not depart from my Word everyday in your life,and always pray daily!( 1 sam 12:23) Not just for yourself either!! But for others as well! Next do not allow your feeling or emotion to interfere with what I am looking to train you in,yes it will be tough, ( rom 12:1-2 VERSE 2!!) (You must renew you mind by my word and not yours anymore!)yes you will have to endure,but look at what you have already endured without me in your life!

I am not in you,to prolong your endurance I am in you to shorten it,so that from what you know I have done in your life,you can give hope,my hope!!( rom 15:13) to someone else's life! You have a purpose! But what can you give to someone when you hold nothing right now in your hands? SO??

What value does believing have without any action associated with it??Correct!! none! It is time to stop boo hoo crying,and get with it!! You will know, because you will see my fruit now in your life,in both mind and in you new words you speak!( You are now accountable!! In both words and deeds! So act accountable!( james 3:4-12!!) ( proverbs 18:21!!)

Your words matter now,about yourself as well as others! If you do not change your mindset,you will not change either!( col 3:2)( phil 4:6-9!!!!) This is your new mindset at all times, no matter what others say or do! I did not call you to be like everyone else, I called you to be a true believer in me!( john 6:28-29) You are an alien!( 1 peter 2:11-17) BE the light,and not part of the darkness!( matt 5:14-16) This you can only do by walking and being led by me,The Lord who loves you, no matter what you feel,or how you act! It is not because of fear that you change,but rather I change you because of your great LOVE for me!

And this you obtained because I first loved you so very much!( 1 john 4:17-19!!) This is being in the race sis,this is how God helped me become saved from my own self stupidity! To learn to always depend upon HIM, trust in HIM, look to HIM, in every area of your young and older life! If you will follow this for 30 days straight,you will see a great result sis! You will understand what truly is the breath and length and depth of God's love personal to you,so that you, through him, can offer this to another just like yourself who so needs HIM!

Your new foundation!!( eph 3:14-21!!!) From this foundation, psalm 40:1-3 took place in my life sis,and he will do the very same for yours as well! My prayers and God's own love abide everyday,and in every way for those who dare to believe! For you sis!( Isaiah 41:9-13!!) Jesus first words to me! I say this all to you sister in the greatest love I know how to!( john 13:34-35) I must admit when I first heard these things i got a bit upset!! LOL Because i knew God was speaking his truth to me! Anger can motivate,it can wake a person up,it did me sis,and not for the purpose of ever judging another! But rather being able now through his great love to give grace,and mercy,and kindness,because I will never ever forget just how great I needed this sis! Blessing always to you!( psalm 27:13!!)

Greetings @confusedspirit

There is nothing like the unfailing word of the Lord to strengthen, encourage and refresh


Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding.
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength...

...But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint
Isaiah 40 28-29 & 31


I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.
The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Psalm 121

There is nothing to be confused about:
  • God is perfect.
  • God does not make mistakes
  • God made you
  • You trials and tribulations are of your own making or the carnal world around you, not God.

Usually whenever everything is falling apart God is getting you ready for something! Sometimes He needs to do some molding in our lives to better serve His kingdom. I know you can't see it now and it really stinks to go through so much at once but just hold on He might be using you for something BIG!!! Praying for some peace and patience.
Big, GINORMOUS HUGS!!
