Kthomas: Yes, you have already been forgiven. When we choose to abandon God, Spirit, whichever name is used, we choose to abandon ourselves as well. We should never place blame on Him for He never blames us. Lessons come hard and fast, at times, and other times, lessons keep coming back to haunt us. Its when we get in the KNOW that we realize that which we are to be doing, not what we feel like doing. Just open your heart, the Light will shine in. May you find the peace you seek as you embrace that which you once thought was lost.

Cici: Still in my daily thoughts. Spirit, watch over and guide your spirit, Cici. May Cici be without pain and suffering. May Cici find peace in your arms as she undergoes the proceedure. Please guide her physician's hands so he/she may be guided to the source of Cici's pain and discomfort. This I ask for a fellow spirit in your care.

What a shame Karin. I did hope things had improved for you. As long as you hold onto that dream, at the expense of your own self, of him coming home to you a recovered and healthy man, you will remain in your self imposed sadness. Life is so beautiful, you are fortunate to have your physical health, take this life and find your purpose as god intended.
Begin to trust in yourself and a door will be opened for you to feel closer to god. You are locked down and blocked in energy and spirit.
Pray for yourself and your situation on a daily basis and it WILL change and heal.

All I want is peace of mind! Is this really to much to ask? I want to come home to peace after a stressful day at work. I want no more people that bring drama into my life and act as if they are still children. I need an inner peace, a piece of mind. Why must i struggle daily just to have some peace. I work so hard and sometimes it feels like it's for nothing...I can't even go home after work and listen to silence. I don't deserve pity but I do deserve peace of mind and peace of soul!

TR...if all you want is peace of mind...TAKE IT.

Living with Drama Queens and Kings....that's not your problem and you don't need to solve it for them.

Since God offers us peace all the time we just need to take it. It can mean a concious calming of your mind and soul. Being like a duck and letting/making the problems roll off your back.

If someone offers you a problem..give it back to them.

Guest, believing in yourself is hand in hand with believing in your creator....you will see, whether you see it or not, you have been guided onto a path..a healing path, where you will eventually start to trust in yourself, and whether you know it or not, god is carrying you and will not leave you although you may not believe this or may feel alone..dont give up. Stay strong

Dear Spirit
I might of known you are native, you love and bless this earth and the great spirit that dwells within and within all of us. We are all connected like a spiders web as we are all connected to mother nature.

Karin....hugs

God has not abandoned us. We abandoned ourselves, god is there, and god cares, but he/she/spirit expects us to cooperate by caring for ourselves.
You are scard but do it anyway with "courageous vulnerability" How do we not abandon ourselves as so many others have?
feel our feelings, talk about our fears, accept ourselves and our present conditions, and then get started on the journey twoard undependence. We can do it. by undependence I mean TO STOP RELYING UPON OTHERS FOR OUR HAPPINESS AND EMOTIONAL WELL BEING, SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TO THOSE CODEPS OUT THERE.We dont have to feel strong all the time to be undependent and taking care of ourselves. We can and probably will have feelings of fear, weakness and even hopelssness/powerlessnes (underlies all our feelings ) this is normal and even healtthy. Real power comes from feeling our feelings, not from ignoring them, REal strength comes, not from pretending to be strong all the time, but from acknowledging our weaknesses and vulnerabilities when we feel this way.
Many of us have dark nights. Many of us have uncertainty, loneliness, and the pan g of needs and wants that beg to be met and yet go seemingly unnoticed. Sometimes the way is foggy and slippery, and we have no hope. All we can feel is fear. All we can see is the dark. Take a step at a time, as if you were walking down a dark road with only a few feet lit at a time, it doesnt matter that we cant see far ahead, relax, see as far as you need to for the moment. Stay calm and work with what is availabl.e Take care of yourself, trust yoursef, trust god, ago as far as you can see, and by the time you get there you will be able to see farther.

GOD will never MAKE you believe in Him. He is just there waiting for us..His children to come to Him.

We can come...empty, broken, failures, used up, abused, abusers, you name it..and he will take us in and comfort us and heal us.

Why doesn't he just do it?

We have to choose Him....just like He chose us.

It is so easy we refuse to believe it.

This is an exercise I am currently doing and think it would help those of you out there who need to feel their feelings.
1. Read through your journal writings. What emotions are squeaking or puring out?
2. Lets play a "what if" game. What if you could be feeling anything you wanted right now, and feeling that way wouldn't make you a bad person. Whjat would you be feeling?

I uncovered a lot of repressed and denied feelings this way, a lot of censored and "shouldnt" feelings....
OUr feelings are our path to our souls healing. Trust our feelings, trust ourselves.

I need a pray, I would like God to
let me know why my fiance took his own life five weeks ago. Three weeks before our wedding. Was this my fiance' way of saying I dont want you?
This is a might hard way to accept rejection, couldnt he just say I dont want to marry you it wont work, instead of hanging himself. I have heard and read that God doesnt give us more than we can handle,why couldnt my finace'handle his life and how do I handle this? So I dont know what I need I just know I miss my fiance and its killing me.

Whoa girl...we will definitley put you on and in all our prayers.

Tough situation.

Find a therapist to help you make some small sense of this horrible tradgedy.

Suicide is the worst since it leaves those of us here wondering what if anything we could have dine IF ONLY the person would have siad something.

You must try to not make this your fault.

You may want to go to "start a new tread" and let us all comfort you directly.

With prayer.

I know this is hard, but you shouldnt personalise his loss of life. It really has little to do with you, if a loved one takes his or her life, it was their decision because of the inability to face and work through their pain. I am sure there is absolutely nothing you could of done to change his decision.
You do need to ask yourself how you got hooked up with a man who had such low self worth and debilitating mental illness and NOT know it.
It is a tough situation, but god wants you to grow from this and if you choose to see the lessons and learn from them, life will no longer produce similar situations and challenges for you.
May god be with you in deep comfort during this terrible time. god bless

thanks eve ..
my priority too is to beleive in myself first. but i wonder if belevieng in god first will help me in beleiving in myself. but again, as u said, first i hae to beliee in myself, then other others things. so maybe i cant beleive in god, unless i start believing in myself? accepting myself, being comfortable . .etc.

brenda, i've ordered the book 'how to know god'. i also ordered '107 uses for your prayer mat' (just kiding..! 🙂 .. )..

well ... i've ordered the book, but i dont know if i'll find the time to read it. it'll still be on my desk, i think i'll be slow in it. I want to be slow and sure. I know that my disbelief in god is so sure right now, i want that if i beleive in him, i should be ery sure of it. for that i am also sometimes looking around for other things, supernatural phenomena or miracles etc. I came across a site called http://www.skepdic.com/. This person looks he doesnt want to believe too, i guess it was interesting as another viewpoint. ppl are having discussions with him to challenge his viewpoint.
anyways thanks...

Guest, you dont have to feel bad about your lack of faith in yourself and in god.
I am glad you order that book, lets start a thread dedicated to that book, it would be great to have a readers group. If anyone else would like to join in, buy the book, and come and offer your own insights.
Guest, i know how eager you are to grow and its so nice to see your positive moves forward, you WILL find peace and you will find the truth about life and yourself.
I know you dont believe, but start each day with just a little prayer, place the day and yourself in gods hands and then know that you will be
divinely guided. LIsten to your inner voice rather than your head. That inner voice, intuition, is god talking to you. blessings
