Warning: Heavy Post Ahead. If you are looking for something happy today, you may not want to read any further. I feel I must share from my heart today and I will be asking for your prayers.
Hello dearest friends and readers. Do you ever find your hand stretched outwards, reaching for something yet you do not know what that something is? Your heart aches so bad that is actually hurts deep down to your soul? I have a very dear friend that is desperately reaching right now and I don't know quite how to help her. I hurt right along besides her and I so want her hurt to go away so that she can smile again.
My friend lost her husband right before Christmas last year. His death was sudden and how he lost his life was tragic. She is desperately trying to sell her home before it goes to foreclosure and she is almost completely out of money. She recently told me that she felt that she didn't have a purpose. That cut me deeply. Everyone has value and has a purpose and is made in the image and likeness of God, yet she still feels she has no purpose. I am genuinely worried for her and haven't stopped praying for her. I pray that when I am speaking with her that God's words and love will wash over her and that she will listen, hear, and feel the love of God.
I recently told a good friend of mine that I feel like I am running out of happy. I don't know what more I can give my friend to make the hurt go away and so she can start healing. I don't know what more I can do for her. I don't know what more I can say to her. I am praying that God will work through me and I know and trust Him but it has been so hard for me seeing her go through this deep unhappiness, lonliness, and hopelessness.
It is so sad to watch someone deteroriate into hopelessness. How does one keep getting up from a fall day after day? How does one begin the healing process and start accepting their life without the one that they love beside them? How does one accept change and growth? How does one begin to see the light again? And as her friend what more can I do?
I am asking you, dearest readers, to please pray for my friend as well as for myself. I would very much love to see her become closer to the Lord and to smile again.
I would ask you to please leave a comment below for her. I ask you, even if you seldom leave a comment that you will consider leaving one today for her. I will be forwarding these messages to her so that she can feel HOPE again and FLY once more.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
