I found ur site from my momma’s Facebook page: Thank God! I am in Great Need of Super Strength! I am in need of a few Miracles right NOW. . . I cannot give up! I HAVE GOD in my Heart, but things r still not looking good. . . all I do is cry All The Time. . . I am Scared, I know I SHOULD NOT be scared, God IS in Control. . .why does everything boil down to Money though, Everything!?! I am Short on the Rent (pending Eviction?), Phone, Food & I have a Car waiting for me too;;; No matter how hard I work, STILL need a few Thousand$ to get back “on my feet”. No where to humanly turn to! What can I do But PRAY?! A.S.A.P.(Always, Say, A, Prayer)

I am in a similar situation as you and I know how you feel.
I’m facing foreclosure on my house and every day the mail brings more bad news. (I broke my ankle very badly in Jan 2010. I can’t get unemployment, disability or any support and the insurance company has not coughed up a dime. I have friends and family for support but everyone is groaning under the weight of this economy and the added burden of helping me. Things are falling farther and farther behind.)
I know God is in control and all shall be done according to His will, but I am afraid too. I like to think (and I am sure it’s true) that since God said that His ways and thoughts are not our ways and thoughts and that His ways and thoughts are so much higher than ours that He understands our fear.
Our God is so much more, so loving and forgiving and compassionate that I think even though we trust him we can see the looming danger and are afraid. He understands like any Good Father would and has compassion and patience.
Imagine if you are strapped tightly to the front of a locomotive (a train) and you cannot escape. Now imagine the train is hurtling down the tracks at say 100 m.p.h. towards a huge gorge where the railroad bridge\trestle is out and if the train does not stop, you, the train and all the cars are going to go plummeting to your demise. Now, the engineer leans out the window and yells to you that he is going to apply the brakes and stop the train. You understand that he is in control of the train but you’re still hurtling towards the rapidly approaching bridge out. He puts on the brakes and they squeal and groan as the train slows but here comes the end!!!
You’re freaking out..probably screaming or worse. Just as you are feet from the end of the line, the train stops and all is well. The engineer stopped the train just in the nick of time. Would he come out and berate you or be mad at you for your fear even though he had it all under control ?
I don’t think so! If he was a person of any good character, he would probably be consoling and compassionate even though he knew he was in control and that there was no real danger…just a scary situation for you.
Now….imagine that the train is your life and the engineer is God. God who is love Personified, the One who created the whole universe and you and me. the One who became Human, walked the earth lived and died for all of us so that we could be with Him again one day. Would God be upset with you for being scared ? I don’t think so. I hope not.
I do not think that we cannot be afraid. We may have ironclad faith in God but our experiences and life challenges definitely make us who we are.
I was abused as a child by my step-father. Not physically but verbally and psychologically. My step-father instilled in me a fear and dread that kept me having nightmares about him from about 10 to about 30 years old. He threw me out of the house when I was 16. That may give you an idea about his effect on my maturing psyche. I can only hope that God understands how this may have damaged me and how this leads to my behaviors, good and bad. I think he does understand and is compassionate. I think he sees that I do try to be the best I can be but when things are bad, I am afraid.
The love of God for us all is so much more than we can ever comprehend.
When we die we will have a taste of that nurturing but we may still never fathom it’s depths which I believe are endless.
You’re not alone and I pray to God that you my sister get relief of your burden

I want to be a better person, but feel like that old me spirit always trying to take over. My heart is filled with so much hurt, pain, anger and so bitterness. I have dreams and don’t even know the meaning of them. I feel like God has gaven me a gift but I don’t know how to use or understand it. I know that I’m a good person, but my past experience just won’t stop hunting me. I want to be the person that God created me to be, but I keep finding myself slipping away from him at times. I don’t know why he has chosen me, because am a failure at everything I do. I can’t keep friends, because of my attutide and insecurity. I have no confident in myself. I blame myself for my past mistakes and just can’t let it go. I cry behind close doors and at night, I even hold my tears in. If, I didn’t have my kids, I ask myself where would I be. I want that life of love, peace and happiness; an abundant life.
