Yes Bobbie, it is just amazing how God can change your life. I feel that sometimes I have experienced some things in my life so that I can understand and help others in a better way having suffered certain types of pain, and certain types of defeats.
I know that though my pain and suffering through different things I am better able to understand, and relate to a more vast group of people. Some of the things I have been though have been hard, but i praise God that i have had all of my experiences in my life. They have molded me, and kept me ever so clo0se to God. God has always been in my life and part of my life, and I don't want it to seem like I am saying I need bad things to happen to keep me close to God or to relate better to people. But, I know that through my darkest hours God and I have shared a deep intimacy. I love god and we share a love and intimacy, but I know just as you become closer to a friend or a spouse, or relative through a hard time in your life, so it is true with God as well as you reach out to him, lean on and depend on Him.

Ever since I got Jesus on the iside of me I have never been lonely.
Before Jesus in me I was forever lonely and miserable and empty and in the dark and a deep black hole of being lost.
But, Jesus came and took all that away from me and gave me His love and He is my Jubilee and I am now forever forgiven and forever free from all blackness, darkness and bleakness and what ever else that is of the curse.
In this world that we live in there are many people who feel alone, isolated, unloved, and unwanted. They feel they have no purpose in life, and worst of all they do not feel God's love, or feel they are even worthy of God's love.
You are NOT alone!
Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you" (1 Peter 5:7)
Do you feel unlovable? This is in my heart, and I pray this for you right now through these words:
I pray that out of his glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen (Ephesians 3:16-21).
God is there for you and he wants to help you to feel better about your circumstances. Everything you are facing right now God is well able to lift off from your shoulders. Take the time, work through the steps, and just give it to Him, and find companionship with God. He is a friend to the lonely, a light in the dark, and a shield to all those in danger.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is on my side and takes my part, He is among those who help me. Psalm 118:6
HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty . I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I trust! For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield. Palm 91:1-4
About 12 years ago I was in a hole. I felt as though I had no purpose, I felt so alone, and I was indeed isolated from people and my family. I was loved by many, yet still felt this within me. I was married (stil am) to a loving wonderful man. I lived two states away from my sisters and mother and missed them. Yet, I had God within me, loving me. I know if I can feel this way, a person who has always been filled with God, so many other people can and do feel this way. The devil was lying to me, and I was believeing his stupid lies.
Know that I am here for you. Know that you are on a team which is filled with love and compassion. God lies within the page of this team, and He directs your team leaders, Missy (Yatamama) and I to help you through our words and in our prayers. You have not come across this team by mere accident. Missy and I have prayed you here. So take charge, and know you are loved by us through Godís Spirit. Through Godís love He has brought you here to learn about him, and for you to feel His love through your team leaders, and your team members. It is true, I may ever meet you, and you may never write a word on this team page. But, Godís love, and through His power, this things do not stop the love, the prayers, and the care we share and have for one another on this team. Read the words the members of this team write to one another. Read the posts, and tell me you do not feel the love, the compassion, and the prayers.
Are you lonely? I ask you to write to me and through my written words of love and companionship, and with Godís love through me we will fill the void.
Dear Jesus please fill every lonely heart out there on this team and in the world we live in. Take then to you and complete them as they turn to you. Hear their whispers in the dark, and their cries from their pillows. Be their light, their shield, and their love. Help them to realize the everlasting love which is in you and shared through you to all who believe. Help them to take the time to include you in their lives, for only then can they feel you completely. Dear God I trust that this was written today for people in need. You have directed them here today, right now to read this post. May their lives change right now through my prayer, and by your power. In Jesus name I pray amen.
