Help needed.


  I'm here to ask y'all for advice (if that's possible with the limited details I'll be giving you), but most of all, prayers.

I'm going through a tough situation. A situation that there's literally nothing I can to do resolve it. I just have to be patient and wait the months (if not longer) it'll take to work out. This all hinges on whether I heard God correctly or not. You see, I had a vision.... and then several more proofs (they would be just silly coincidences if they were alone.) were pointed out to me, but I find myself second guessing everything I've been believing.

Regaurdless, God is telling me to let go of this. To put it in His hands and not worry about it. I'm supposed to live my life and let Him workout the details. So whether I'm right about this or not, I must give it to God. It's not as if I have to stop believing. I just have to stop being so stuck in my thoughts about this. I have to deny what I want to happen, and trust that God will give me the very best. He won't short sell me.

I'm just... I don't know how to just move on. It's something that's very close to my heart. It's intertwined into my life. Relinquishing control.... I don't even know how to begin that processes. Oh, Lord, I'm a train wreck.

Like I said, even if you have no advise or encouraging words to say, I really need prayers.



Shalom,

  1. You're right about limited details. Seems a lot of young people are working through things right now. You can always email if you need to talk more.

  2. Well, sweetie, this is how I see it.
    Your situation is like a puppy (I know, I know, I used puppies last time; just bear with me). What do you think of, when a puppy comes to your mind? Just about everyone will say cuteness, fuzzy fur, chewing on things, or energy. When it gets right down to it, puppies are annoying and a lot of work. They even hurt you. They bite, they chew your grandmother's old necklace, they hide from you when you yell (or whenever they feel like hiding).
    Now, think about an adult dog. What do most people think of when they hear "dog"? Aside from the people that are deathly allergic or just plain terrified, dogs are loyal and trustworthy companions that will faithfully serve you until they die. They sometimes have their moments of extreme energy or they just start aching to chew something up---and with all their practice they know just how to chew it---and sometimes they get into a mood where they're just plain annoying. But that's only sometimes. Most people would also say that having a dog was so far beyond worth it. Some dogs even save their owner's life.
    Of course, between puppyhood and a full grown dogs, you have to "be patient and wait the months (if not longer) it'll take" for them to grow. Does an annoying puppy stay an annoying puppy? No. It comes out of hiding, and the sorry look on its face says that it wishes it'd never chewed up your grandmother's old necklace. It grows up. It matures. Is there ever a puppy that doesn't undergo growth? Absolutely not. It happens, because that's the way God designed them.
    Your situation won't be like this forever, especially if you give it to God. As far as that part goes... I know how hard that can be. I suggest having someone that you're close to, pray for you. Like, lay his/her hands on you and pray for you. Pray for an easiness in your heart about letting go of this, and giving it completely to God. Pray you find a great peace in knowing that God has this. He won't let you down, and He has only the best in store for his beautiful princess. And I'll be praying the same things from here. The very best to you, Alana.

    1. Thank you. So much. You're words are always encouraging.
      I have two specific friends in mind that I'll be with at the end of the week, and I'll ask them to do just that.

  3. Hey there,

    I'm not sure what you are going through but I am currently reading this book "Conversations with God" which sounds weird but it's actually quite soothing. It's not your traditional theories and you can take from it what you want but hey it might help!

    xx,
    E

  5. everything is a season, love. there are good ones and bad ones but they all have one thing in common: they are not permanent. life is always changing and moving. god's got the big picture and you only have a piece to the puzzle, but as you keep on living you get some more pieces so just hang tight. seek god first for everything and you'll walk the right path xoxo

  6. I will be praying for you to make the right decision about this apparently tough situation. I have never been one to be able to offer good advice, so I am at a loss as to what to say to you other than trust in the Lord.

  7. I've been there before. thats a rough situation to be in. When I was stuck second guessing myself I had to remind myself to have confidence. see, we should be at a place in our lives where we know our God and we know when He's trying to tell us something versus mere coincidence.
    Letting go of control is sooooooo hard and I've been having to do a lot of that lately so I understand. remember that there is more than what you see in front of you. God sees the whole picture. so trust Him! and run to scripture. Pslams 37: 4 says "delight yourself in the Lord and He'll give you the desires of your heart." so when you're unsure about where to go, just run to God and make your relationship with Him your number 1 priority. then everything else will fall into place.
    I'm praying for you dear:)
