You're not alone!

You're Not Alone
New International Version (NIV)
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
At times do you feel like you're all alone??
When family and friends turn their back on you do you feel as if you have no one??
I can remember a time when I was a child... My mother was a single parent so that made our life a struggle! The only time my father would come around was when He had an "appointment" to give me and my sisters a whipping. Well that's what it seemed like to us. I just didn't understand and I felt as if life was not worth living. Plenty of times I tried committing suicide just to get away from the fear, the hurt, & the pain! I felt so lonely! I felt as if God dropped me off in a desert and left me there! I didn't have NO ONE to depend on... I didn't know who I could go to! I prayed to the Lord and I literally felt Him holding me... I felt so much love, peace, & I felt so protected! One thing I've learned is that no matter how it may look... God have not left you! At some point in life it may seem like you're all alone but God is RIGHT THERE... I am a witness!! If you are in that place where you feel alone and discouraged I just want to encourage you on today... God is REAL... He is such an honest God & if He said He'll never leave you... You better believe He won't! Most of the things we go through is only to help someone else... God allows you to go through certain trials because he knows your strength. He knows you're strong enough to endure! The Lord truly will never put too much on us... Only what we can take! If you're going through & you feel as though it's too much... Let me remind you... YOU CAN DO ALL
THINGS THROUGH CHRIST BUT ONLY WITH HIS STRENGTH! You can't do it on your own...So Allow Gods strength to be made perfect in your weakness! Cast your cares on HIM and He will sustain you! My yoke is easy and My burden is light says God... =) Trust Him!! He will not let you down... Smile and be encouraged!! When you have been tried you shall come out as pure Gold... Allow the POTTER(GOD) to shape you. Whew, you're going to be sooooooo much stronger and you're going to shine soooo much brighter when He gets down!! -Shalom

Father God in the name of Jesus, We come before your throne as humbly as we know how! Lord God we are entering into your gates with thanksgiving and we are entering into your course with praise! Lord we just want to say thank you, Thank you for your love, Thank you for your mercy, and your grace. Lord we thank you just for who you are. We ask that you will forgive us for any and all sin, forgive us for our transgressions, trespasses, and iniquities. Cleanse us from any and all unrighteousness and fill us up with a triple fold and a continuous flow of your anointing power. Create in us a clean heart Lord God and renew a right spirit within us! If you find anything in us that's not pleasing to you we ask that you will take it away! Lord God I ask that you will strengthen your child, send down your peace and calm every storm that they are in the midst of! Restore their faith Lord God, Lord God send down your restoration! Encourage their spirit... Wrap your arms around them so that they can feel that they are not alone! Thank you Lord God for hearing the prayers of the righteous. Whatever we have asked you for or failed to ask you for we ask that you will grant it according to your riches in glory... & we'll be so carefully to give your name the honor, the glory, and the praise. In Jesus name we pray, AMEN!
