How do we know when we are walking in God's direction for our life. I keep praying for God's wisdom, peace, etc. and still I have my days where I really have to wonder where God is and why things are happening to me when I am praying for his direction.

I am going through very tough time with myself right now. I am fighting through this lonelines and just waiting on God. He has made things so easy for other things and every day I wonder if there are things I have to change within my spiritual life, etc.

I have great days and then all of the sudden..its back to the loneliness. Today I have 2 invitations to 2 events, same for tomorrow besides working all day and then Sunday is Church and then picnic. Just thinking about all this is making me tired. I just want to not feel this way and be home.

Dear 2B -

If I were to tell you that I always have complete confidence that I am walking in God's direction for my life, i would be lying my tail off. My emotions try to undermine me. The whirlwinds of Life (and all its trials) blow huge smokescreens of indecision, confusion and doubt into my heart.

And loneliness is the HARDEST challenge for me. Is He enough? Or do I have to have a man at the center of my life, to feel "complete" and good? Huge question. I hate the answer. The answer is that I am still struggling with this. I have been single for over a year now...and recently began hanging out with a male neighbor. It began innocently with no emotional involvement on my part. But then, I began to find myself DEPENDING UPON and LOOKING FORWARD to those calls from him...those casual outings. Not good.

Truth time.

I have a long ways to go. There is a part of me which wants God to be my center. Then, there is the "soulish" (emotional) side of me which longs for human comfort and companionship. And I am trying to find His will and His balance in all of this. I don't want to get off His path for my life.

It ain't easy. Keep praying. Keep talking to Him and TELL HIM HOW YOU FEEL. I do. I whine quite loudly. Somehow, it helps. Lastnight, I went outside and sat on my patio with a little stray cat which we have rescued. Put a Praise & Worship tape into my cassette player and popped on the headphones. Poured a White Russian. Had an evening under the stars with God and that little cat. It actually helped me a great deal.

Tell Him your deepest longings and needs...then look to Him to meet them. He can. He will. And He understands how torn we are...how damaged we are in our hearts from our upbringings and the broken relationships of our pasts.
