I really need your prayers today

Friday, January 25, 2013

It is the middle of the night. In fact I have been up since 3:00 a.m. I woke up because I could hear water running. I was not imagining it. Our main water line to our home decided to blow a hole and start to spew water everywhere. I am so frustrated right now and just feel like crying but I am not going to. I tend to eat everything in sight when I am stressed and I hope that I can get past all this without doing so. I usually don't ask for help but I need to get through today. emoticon

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. We got the water shut off and the plumber fixed the pipes but there is still a big mess to clean up. My mom used to tell me that God only gives you what he knows you can handle. You just have to stop and shift the load once in awhile. Sometimes I think God is really putting me to the test. I have been through so much bad stuff in the last 22 years that if it were not for my faith I know I would not have made it. My husband suffered a brain aneurysm on his 30th birthday while I was expecting our daughter. H esurvived by the grace of God with right sided paralysis but he still lived. My son was killed in an accident at the mine where he worked when a bin of potash collapsed and I watched my mom slowly die from cancer. I truly believ that these things have made me the person I am now. I'm not asking for sympathy I just want to let others know that if a person can go through tragedy then they are strong enough to do anything that they set their minds to. So heres to a new and wonderful journey on my way to my healthier weight. emoticon m emoticon

    Will pray that the Holy Spirit will be your peace and comfort- remember food can not do what only God can do. Others may want to help comfort you but peace only comes from the PEACE GIVER.

    I am so sorry for this mess that has descended upon you....that really sucks as I have had it happen to me wherein I lost tons of personal stuff with lots of sentiment. It is really frustrating and you can only do what is foot in front of the other and concentrate on one day at a time.

    Hope it gets cleared up sooner rather than later. emoticon emoticon

    So sorry that you awoke to such a mess! Just do the best you can today. Think of how important it is to care for yourself so you can manage these kinds of stressful events. Sending a prayer your way that this will work out.

    Try not to stress about it, okay? I'll pray for you that God might lighten your burdens, be it His will. I know it's the middle of the night, but perhaps moving around a bit will help get that stress out of your system, rather than laying down and trying to sleep with inescapable thoughts.
