Hi MamaC,
Forgive me, but this is the only way I knew to get your attention, as it already has your name in the title...
How's life doing this week?
Love and hugs.

OMW:

Hi! Ok I guess. Feel weak and tired most the time. The TMJ is back and my jaw still is sore from clenching. I see the doc the 17th.

Thank you for asking.

Hi MamaC..I know you are not feeling very well, so just whenever you may have a chance to respond is ok.

What do you think...
How do we know what we are to do sometimes. Maybe all I need to do is ask God, but I am not sure I even recognize the right thing to do.
Big things, I can decide, but when it comes to relationships, I have such trouble.

I used to think that any feelings deep inside that would not go away were a cause for me to act, especially after prayer. But before when I did that, I did not receive positive results, as in maybe it was my ego instead.

I want to contact my friend, and I have had this compulsion to do so for 2 weeks, getting stronger every day. But on the other hand, it seems appropriate to wait, as the relationship we had was one where I need him to make the first move to show me he cares, and he needs to make the first move to KNOW that he cares. So I wait, trusting God that this will happen if it is His will.
The other option is that what if I mess up and don't hear God...do you ever go through this, and if so what do you do? For all of my faith, some of the simplest things are not recognizable. Then He will drop hints to me, for ex. this morning, my son came in to see me at my office and talked to me about his new Christian girlfriend and how he can look back and see that God prepared him a month ahead of time to meet this girl. SO in some ways I think God is preparing me, and other ways I am afraid I am going to miss the boat.

Would appreciate your perspective ...when you feel better. And I hope you are feeling better, omw/S

OMW: I am feeling pretty good today, Thanks for asking.

I am not trying to put you off on your question, but would like a little time to think on it and maybe look up some words from God in the Bible. I don't like to "jump in" w/o praying.

Gotta go to sister's for dinner, but promise to write when I get back.

Take care, and do something nice for yourself.

OMW:

I think if you read back you will see you answered your own question. "Trusting God that this will happen if it is His will." That is a really hard one to take isn't it.

It could be just a matter of waiting and being prepared. Habakkuk 2:3 says, For the revelation awaits an appointed time, it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.

But, did you think that maybe it is IF it is His will? Maybe this guy is not the guy God wants you to be with. I'm glad to see you pray for His will to be done. One of the hardest things that can happen is if it is not in His will when you want it to be. I know you had the lyrics to "Unanswered Prayers" coz I sent them to the wrong thread; or maybe it was meant for you to get them also.

I would like to leave you with a few verses that deal w/ when you do not understand God's ways.

Isaiah 55:8-9 says, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Romans 8:35-37 says, Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Romans 8:28 says, And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Yes, I have been where you are with not hearing from God when you are praying for an answer. When you start second guessing that maybe you missed it. If God wants us to hear him, we won't miss it. It might take a mack truck to get your attention, but you will know when God tells you.

I gave my story on a thread today. I hate talking about my past. But, I want you to know. God told me not to marry my ex. It wasn't a mack truck that God sent, but he did send my sister driving my mom's car and actually running me off the road and running mom's car into the side of a gas truck to get my attention. I am serious. And yet I still did not listen. How stupid is that. I had the perfect out....my sis had a wreck during an epileptic seizure. But I didn't take it.

I'm not telling you this guy is the wrong one. I am saying if you have not heard from God then there is a reason. When God wants you to know what is going on... or when God has a better guy in the works, you will be told. God's not gonna let it pass you by if you are being faithful to him. I truly believe that.

Hope this helped.

Thank you so much for the verse reminders. And thank you for taking the time to write them down. I too was told by so many people not to marry my ex-husband, but I didn't listen,...but I have the boys as a result, and they are such a gift, and I beleive they are supposed to be here because they love God.

I have been reading a book tonight by Joel Osteen, "Living Your Best Life Now", and something that spoke to me is that God plants seeds in us. But He can only give according to our faith, right? And whether or not I am right or wrong, or he is the right man or not...in reading and bein greminded of those characters in the Bible, Mary for instance, when she was told that she would bear a son, not of a man...but by supernatural means.

From that I was reminded about how my faith is so limited by what I think...this man cannot like me because of this, that, etc. ...and this is how I think at times. So I am thinking, that a lesson for me to learn, is to recognize the seed that has been planted...which is the deep yearning I have had the last couple of weeks. And I have felt I have to DO something...you know the devil is very good at getting us to always feel we have to DO something, and for me everytime I DO, I have gotten in God's way, as I have not trusted him to bring it about. But what HE taught me this evening? Is possibly, "I planted the seed, but He is telling me it is up to me to let it take root. Am I going to let my doubts and fears choke it, or am I going to trust that this man could actually love me, and that God has that plan for me if I want it. My vision is limited. God's is not limited. I do know that if he came back in to my life right now, that I want it, but I don't trust it, and because I don't trust it..as I am not worthy of it (dumb huh, but that is how I think) then it will fail. It is almost like God is tellingme it is here for the asking, TRUST me through it. And you know what though? I am even afraid to trust God with this, I am afraid to spend any more time beleiving that this man could be for me if I want him, because I have spent so much time there anyway. The lesson is trust, God wants me to learn it, that I am certain of....whether the outcome is that I get what I want, or Goe brings more redemption for me, I don't know.
But does this make sense to you? I just think I limit myself so much, when God is saying, trust me, or you according you your faith it will be given you...can't remember where that verse is, but the Bible, as you know is full of people just like me, just like you, who had to trust Him ALL the way, not just partially, but ALL of the way...and I know I need too, and I am such a control freak!

Anther great verse, heard it on Christian radio this morning..donm't have my Bible next to me, I think it is Psalms 91:4.
God Bless.

OMW:

I do believe God blesses us even when we are in the midge of our consequences of disobedience. My oldest daughter has asked me why I stayed w/ her biodad. She is so full of anger. I told her I cannot regret that marriage no matter what happened because I got her and my son from it. That God blesed me w/ the two of them.

Do you ever think you make it harder than it actually has to be? Ever hear Let Go and Let God? That is so much easier to hear than to do. I know that one too. I do think you are right. You have to let go not partially, but totally and completely. You have to give it ALL to God. To do that you have to just go about your daily business and when this guy crosses your mind, you try to put it out. You've given it to God, remember? You don't stop life and just sit home; you go out dancing or whatever you do for recreation. IF IF IF this is the guy God wants you to have and you have agreed that he has to be the one to contact you then as hard as I know it has to be, you have to honor that agreement. Then IF it is to be one day you'll look up and there he will be. Or there will be someone better in his place. Are you following me here? To me that is what giving it to God is all about. Is it easy? NO! but you can do it. I know you have the faith it takes to leave it all in God's hands....where it should be.

Looked up your verse. Very fitting. Thanks.

Yes I have made things harder than it has to be. I will take this to heart and it is right. In fact will print it out to remind me. It is a process. More and more I am being shown that things are out of my control, things that are necessary to let go of. He really wants all of us you know? And does not fail us. I am so glad you are a participant on this website. Your faith is written in stone, and it helps me when I wander off. love and hugs.
