well I asked God to tell me if the man i was seeing was the right one. And I got my answer and it hurts like hell because i was so sure this man was a good christian man. Come to find out he was a player i think. So word to the wise if you ask God he will let you know. And sometimes it might be the answer you were hoping for and sometimes it will be the brutal honest truth. Iam a witness to this. Well maybe ill have better luck next time.

lita,

Every now and then I get an answer to a prayer that I don't like. Sometimes I fight it for a period of time, like Jonah, before coming to grips with it. Nothing is worse than having God tell you to not do your heart's desire.

But God is always right, I know.

Merry Christmas.

I can relate to this and hear you when you say that Lita. Several years ago, I had crush on man. I was really infatuated by him thinking about him 24/7, I was real Codep then. I kept praying for God to bless our love but could not have any positive answer from Him.

Now in retrospect, I am so glad it did not work out even tho I got depressed when God said No. I found out that he has a lot of NPD and he is a jerk. So, I am so glad I got rid of another jerk in my life!!!LOL

God's answer is ALWAYS the best, even if we cannot see it now we will appreciate it later And it saves us lots of heartaches.

(((Lita))) Do not be depressed honey! Think of the heartaches this man would cause you if you married him, do not romanticize things, I know we tend to do that when we fall in love. Wait for the right man, God has one for you and he will appear at the right time!

~I Love You and have wonderful Christmas day, Ras~

Over many years I asked God for help and He finally sent me to an Ashram in India.

I then learnt to meditate to make the Supreme(Raj) Union(Yoga) with Him.

Instead, I found my Higher Self that directed me to Buddhism.

Praying sure worked for me. I found out that I was praying to my 'Self'.

Now I have learnt to stand on 'my' own two 'spiritual feet', to 'pick up a hoe', and to not pray at all.

'All is the seamless and boundariless One there is no other'; Quantum physics seems intent on validating this belief.

Pray away - it sure seems to work.

Lita,

Thank you so much for sharing how God gave an answer to your prayers with us. That instantly lifted me up, put a smile on my face and made me feel very grateful to you.

You know, some people like doctors and lawyers get the chance to see the benefit of their contribution right up front: a healthy baby is born or justice prevails.

But, some people, artist like yourself, can only learn how much a poem has impacted someone or an antidote has inspired someone when that someone tells them...Thank You!

I'm telling you!

Thanks friend!

Lita:

It may hurt now, but God will never steer you wrong. And yes, sometimes it is a hard row that we are given to walk. I prayed for my 2nd hubby. I prayed, the church prayed, and I had no doubts. Then I find out he iled to me and I, sucker me, fell for his lies. But, ya know... I still believe God put us together. His folks say I'm the best thing that has ever happened for him. And I got a guy that truly loves me.... I just didn't think I'd be dealing w/ another addict. But... that is not to blame God coz hubby makes his choices.... even bad ones and hurt his family.

Lita... I'm happy you listened to God. Please do keep praying and keep listening.

Somedays, I wish God would hit me upside the head with a 2x4 cuz I sure don't understand what he is trying to tell me.

I pray for Him to heal my heart, to help me love again, & to help me forget certain people (or to at least make my thoughts of them not so prevalent), and it has not worked yet.

Somedays I even pray that I could cry the kind of soul clearing, depression draining cry that everyone needs to purge themselves once in a while & I find I cannot cry more than a few tears.

The hair on my head maybe brown, but when it comes to listening & understanding what He is trying to tell me ~ I feel totally like the stereo-typical blonde who uses white-out for errors on the computer monitor.

Some day I'll understand I hope ~ I just hope & pray He will forgive me for being so dumb to what He's trying to tell me....

Do you think He has my prayer(s) on Call Waiting by any chance? (humor, sorry.... when all else fails, laugh at yourself.)

It's been almost 3 yrs. I sometimes cry when I pray. Wish I understood better.

"But only say a word & I shall be forgiven" this makes me cry at church.

Some day I hope to understand or at least find peace of heart.

(((Juanita)))

Prayers are answered in special way.

It can be yes, or no and He provides something better than what we prayed for, or it can be wait.

If God says no or wait, you cannot say He does not answer. You have to wait for His will and timing.

Read in this thread and you will see that God said No to many of us: He said No to: Lita, me (Ras) and perhaps many others I am sure.

So, do not get discouraged honey.

God has plan for you and it will come to pass BUT at his timing not yours. That is the bottom line.

I hope you will feel better now.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

(((Hugs)))

PS: I answered your post on the other thread. I hope you saw it and liked it. You can be transparent & honest with us here on this board, we will not hurt you.

Ras, Thanks for your words & hug.

Have you seen the "Need Opinion..." thread on Support Side?? (its a long title) I would feel a hyprocrite if you didn't know a little more about me. I think God is letting me be to muddle this out on my own. Thing is, I think I'm too sensitive, hurt, & "blonde" to do this alone.. (probably scared too)so I stay where I am. Perhaps I should change my prayer requests to that of Strength of mind & character to Know what to do & Be Able to do it. Maybe that would help.

I have just answered your thread above on the support. And I actually can see God moving fast in your life.

Before you did not communicate and open up much on this forum. This last month, you have been the most transparent and vulnerable.

Can't you see God moving in your life already?

Keeping posting and venting~~~Ras~~~

Ras~

I hope so, but sometimes everything just seems so stuck. I am not happy & am not sure which direction to turn. I guess I am just afraid of whatever I may choose to do. I am afraid to open up to my spouse, to be hurt again, not listened to again (which he still does). Afraid to go to counseling & hear everything is basically my fault - I didn't speak up enough or loud enough.... I am afraid to perhaps realize another route is the way to go. I have never ever been on my own. That's a scary thought. We have young kids, I do not want to mess up their lives either. Not sure of so many things.

I always try to view things from many different directions & this, though nice at times, can also lead to indecision and in-action b/c there are SO many ways to view things. So, when in doubt, stay & think some more. Get to be tired of thinking cuz just when I think I got it, something else changes or happens to of course add more thought into the process! (sigh)

I try to analyze - is this a mid life crisis? a depression? for real? a little of all 3... Don't want to pop a pill to make it better, afraid to upset the apple cart.

bleah, not ready for the answers yet I suppose. Wait for the kids to get a little older. See how things are a couple years from now? (Talk about a slow mover!)

It takes a lot for me to change my mind on certain sets, and once changed, is so very hard to change again... This has been going on 3 yrs just about - I originally posted way back then, but kept away for a while. People think - get over it & move on.... enough is enough.

Action is slower for some than others....

Got to fly... someone @ door.

Thanks for you time.

Change is not that easy and simple Juanita! Imagine a piece of laundry that has been neglected for so many years and all of a sudden you want to clean it. Had it been taken care of right from the beginning, you would have saved yourself so much effort, time, and detergents etc.

Likewise our life it resembles laundry. You mentioned that if you go to counseling, that the counselor might be biased or put the blame on you. Well, I believe the most important thing when you go to cousneling is to choose someone who is Truthful and Honest not biased or prejudiced. Otherwise, it will be a waste of time, money and energy.

So take this process in baby steps, one step at a time and live your life one day at a time.

Remember when you open your heart to God, He will be there and He will start to look after the whole situation. So, you just do your homework Juanita and leave the rest to him.

You don't have to analyze, figure things out or do anything. And in order to keep it simple, I will suggest to you honey to purchase this book "The power of a praying Wife" by Stormie Omartian. It's a book that contains 30 chapters of prayers and areas where husbands are bound to struggle such as: His work, finances, sexuality, temptations, mind....

Its a wonderful book. Take a look at an a few excerpts from this book (Foreword):

"Wait! Before you write off the marriage

I confess right now that there was a time when I considered separation or divorce....

The biggest problem I faced in our marriage was my husband's temper. The only ones who were ever the object of his anger were me and the children. He used words like weapons that left me crippled or paralyzed....

I began to pray every day for Michael, like I had never before. Each time, though, I had to confess my own hardness of heart. I saw how deeply hurt and unforgiving of him I was....

Little by little, I began to see changes occur in both of us. When Mike became angry, instead of reacting negatively, I prayed for him. I asked God to give me insight into what was causing his rage. He did. My husband's anger became less frequent and more quickly soothed. Every day, prayer built something positive. We are still not perfected, but we've come a long way. It hasn't been easy, yet I'm convinced that God's way is worth the effort it takes to walk in it."

So Juanita, give it your best shot. Purchase this book today and start praying for your hubby. Who knows you may not need to go to counseling afterall!

I will keep you in my daily prayers, honey and keep us posted!

XOXOXO~Ras~

A discerning spirit is key, to be able to judge what is of God and what isn't. Some avenues seem right but they aren't, as well as many opportunities and situations look right but they aren't. Good to know how to distinguish between truth and error. Feelings can be so misleading (speaking from personal experience).

I am impressed that you were able to discern so quickly, good for you!

OMW...

I'm sorry, if your statement is directed to me... I totally don't get your last sentence. I don't feel I've discerned anything. All I know is when in doubt, keep thinking or mulling it over - hopefully some answer will arise & I hope God is patient with me cuz I sure ain't quick.
