prayer it
thanksgiving day prayer request...desperately needed.

thank God for all of you who have taken your time out to pray and encourage others. i know it's not always easy, especially when you are dealing in your own battles. thank you for caring enough to reach out. i thank God for my job and for a place to lay my head, and a car to drive. i thank God for family and friends who love me. and again, i thank God for people like you...my friends.

today, i need your prayers. last week i had an epiphany, and i was doing so well...but like i have discovered...it's not easy to maintain. just when i think i know my path and just when i think i know what i'm supposed to do and how it will unfold, thats when negativity and evil wants to fight back even harder. i got no sleep last night. something hit me yesterday/last night that just wanted to break me down. all i did was cry and beg God for his help. while laying in bed, memories of luan and i kept repeating over and over in my mind...i tried to fight them because it just makes things harder for me, but i couldn't control them. i could hear his voice and i could feel his arms around me and the words, "i love you so much" coming from his mouth just kept repeating. see, my relationship with luan was just short of perfect. it would have been perfect had we BOTH had God. there are no bad memories...so when they keep repeating it just makes me miss him more and more. then suddenly thoughts and images of him dating other girls and him out with other girls comes shooting through my mind as well. there was a battle in my head, and to be honest, it was killing me. i just wanted to die. so that it would just stop. i couldn't get the flood...the battle of my mind to stop. please keep me in your prayers. i need God to speak to me. i need Him to reveal to me what i'm supposed to do as far as luan goes.

tomorrow is my birthday, and i certainly don't want to feel this way tomorrow. i desperately want to be happy again.

I feel your pain and your hurt, I am so sorry if there was anything I could do I would do it. I know you have heard it and know it but it is hard to do, you need to surrender to God and let God have Luan. This is a battle that only God is equipped to fight. I am praying for you and Luan. Let Jesus be your mate for this season.

This is a daily message that I get from Joel Osteen that I thought might help you. I thought of you when I read it.
Be well. Claudia

Anytime God is about to take you to a new level you’re going to face opposition. There will be new battles to fight and new obstacles to overcome. It’s easy to get discouraged and think, “Why is this happening?” But we have to change our thinking and focus on the fact that on the other side of those challenges is a new level of victory—a new level of success. David would only be known as a shepherd boy if it weren’t for Goliath. David’s enemy became the tool that God used to promote him. And God will do the same in your life today. He’ll use those challenges and difficulties in your life to catapult you towards success! If you are going through a hard time today, if things look impossible, don’t give up now.

Change your perspective and believe that God is working behind the scenes. Put a smile on your face and stand in confidence knowing that you are a child of the Most High God. When all is said and done, you’re not just going to come out of that difficulty, but you’re coming out stronger, wiser, and better than you were before! That problem is going to be the catalyst for God to open supernatural doors of opportunity for you! Stand strong in the Lord today and trust that what the enemy meant for your harm, God will turn around and use to your advantage. He’ll take you places you never dreamed and cause you to rise higher and higher in every area of your life!
