Desperate For God

Hello everyone,

So I got a few minutes on my hands before heading off to bed. Lately I have felt pretty discouraged. I was sick right before Christmas and then just when I was beginning to feel better I get sick again right for New Years. Sometimes I get discouraged when my prayers don't seem to be getting answered the way I would like, but I have to continually remind myself that God does answer my prayers and He has a perfect plan for why I'm going through things. I just have to keep the right outlook on my circumstances and know He is in control.

Lately in my life I have just wanted someone to be there for me, to love me no matter what and say they will protect me. It gets to hard sometimes not having my dad here with me and to have that father-daughter relationship with him. Even though there are men in my life I feel like nobody can take the true place that my dad can. There are days when I feel like I just can't take it anymore and I just wish he could be here. I mainly wish he could be here for my Mom because she has had such a rough life and I know my dad could always help her through and had the right words where I cannot.

Sometimes I just have to pray to God and hope that He will help us through since there is nobody else there who can help. And I think that is sometimes the best way to go to God- by praying sincerely from our hearts out of desperate need. Those prayers are true, sincere and honest with a desperate plea for help. It is in those moments where I feel the closest to God and I feel like I can feel Him right there beside me reassuring me it is going to be okay. Sometimes I wish I could feel God physically and see His face helping me through those rough moments- it sure would be a lot easier to trust Him if I could see Him and hear those encouraging words straight from His mouth. But sometimes just the Bible verses I come across while reading my devotions are almost more meaningful because they were written before I ever was born and God led me straight to them to help me through the current situation I am facing.

Well, I am sorry to have rambled so much about my life on this post, but hopefully in some way you can find it as an encouragement to your life in a neat way. Thanks so much for dropping by.

As you can probably see I took down the old design and put up a new fresh look. Please vote on the poll or leave a comment and let me know what you think if you get a chance : )

Hope you all have a happy New Year! : )

  2. No worries about ramblin'. :0)

    Remember God on the mountain is still God in the valley. That is a reminder God gave me last weekend, when I need it.

    Hope your are feeling better soon.

    God bless and keep you,

  4. I feel like that often. God hasn't become my one satisfaction yet, and I constantly want that something else.

    Thank you SO much for doing my design, Britt. It is absolutely beautiful and I love it!

    I'll be praying :)

    1. Yeah, I feel that way too and that I'm constantly seeking other things than Him. It sure is something I have to continually work on. Aww...I'm so glad that you like the design. It was such a pleasure to work with you!

  5. I think it's kind of funny--God usually doesn't answer with exactly what I wanted, but it's BETTER. =) We serve an awesome God!! :)

    Hey, I was kind of wondering... what happened to your pages? I wanted to ask you some more design questions :) but it wouldn't let me go to the page. :( Is there a way to fix that??

    God bless!!

    1. Hey Storyteller- yeah, so true and sometimes when I can't see the answer just knowing that it was according to His plan and it was for the best it helps me keep trusting. Oh thanks so much for telling me about my pages...I never finished with the code...haha...they are fixed now though : )

  6. I'm totally with you! I often wish God was here, physically, so that I could just sit and talk to him, when I'm upset, frustrated, or really need him most. So he could hug me when I most need it. But, sometimes God makes me feel as if I've been in his arms,or etc, he gives me that reassuring peace even if it wasn't physical.. ya know? He is just amazayn like that <3
