Scared Alone

Searching for peace and relief.

I'm lost and alone in my heart, facing a lot of struggles. I'm losing my job due to a merger and am trying to get a position with the current company but doors keep getting shut to me, and I haven't had any interviews outside the company yet either. I do have some months yet, and a severance package, but I'm still very frightened and unable to rest with peace and without fear. I also have a sick father with cancer and a sick grandmother, as well as my own health concerns. There are some other minor concerns that become magnified when I see them amoung the other pressures. I am living alone away from any family, and no friends to count on. I do have a therapist for support, so I am getting that professional guidance, but it's not the personal touch. I'm very scared, and want comfort and peace in my life. I want to be able to rest. I feel like I'm running scared and tired, so exhausted. Things keep going wrong, bills, things breaking, etc. My mind is so unsettled.

Focus on what you do have now -- a severance package and some months yet. Give thanks for that. Behold the presence of Jesus as Healing in the lives of your sick Grandmother and Father. You are Never alone for GOD is always with you. Don't worry yourself sick. Then there will be three people sick. Here's a thought-> DIVINE LOVE HAS MET AND WILL MEET EVERY HUMAN NEED. Take it from me, I been off work for 10 months. Sure I panic, but I sleep well because I am abundantly provided for, even though appearances say otherwise.
These are the times when your Faith has to be stronger. You are not in this alone.

Meghanne -
DO NOT FEEL ALONE!!! God is always with you. He will NEVER let you down. You must try your best to look at the positives in your situation, and also not try to take in everything all at the same time. No matter what, you can only deal with one thing at a time. I have been where you are - many, many times, and please believe me - you will come out on the other side - I did. I still have many trials and tribulations - however - God has always come through for me. He has never let me down - because he is constant. If you make yourself sick with worry - where will your sick family members be? Think about that. Pray. Find a good church - it CAN make all the difference. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers from now on. My most important prayer for you is that you come to know peace. God wants us to know the joy in life - and we must do our best to honor him because He is the One who gave us this wonderful gift called life! As hard as it may be, we must give thanks and praise for our tough times as well as our good times - because if we had no tough times, how would we know the good? How else would we really know to appreciate when things go well? You WILL come through this, and when you do, you will look back on this and know that you can get through anything - with God's help. You are stronger than you know - because you reached out to this prayer circle and asked for help - it takes a strong person to ask for help. During this time, take care of your body - feed it properly, get rest when you need it - you may not sleep, but at least rest. When you are ready, your body and mind will allow you to sleep. When I am most troubled and cannot sleep, I pray and pray and the next thing I know, it's morning and I have slept through another night!

You will be okay.

Dear Lord:
I pray that Meghanne finds the peace and thankfulness for all that she does have, and that she will soon see (or already has seen) how abundantly YOU provide for our needs. I pray that Meghanne has by now found a good job she finds fulfilling and that her father has either recovered or has peacefully come home to You, whatever is Your will. Please keep Meghanne's faith strong and her heart light, with the joy that can be found in every day life.
May You have also shown her who her friends are and brought them into her life as another true source of joy and contentment. No one should be alone, and You will provide for Meghanne and all of us.
In Jesus' name I pray.

Dear Meghanne,

When the going gets has to be God's doing. It is His way of putting you into a situation as He wants to make you better than what you already are . Ofcourse, He has His own way of easing your troubles too. You only have to talk to Him. Ask and you shall receive.

Don't be scared; God will never leave alone. May God bring you peace love and blessing, more abundantly.

God loves all of us. I can feel Your pain. My mother in law suffers from
mental illness. My mom is pair-l-lized.
I suffer from mental illness also. I HAVENT worked for 18 months. my wife and i have been living off our
credit cards, were $20.000.00 in debt.
My wife Carla is di-a bet-tic and hasnt
worked in 10 years.I was working at a golf course when I was laid off. I DO
want to work in golf again. I may be down but I am not out yet. I have to come back and fight like a man. Somethings in life you must be mad about
if not Your world will never change.
HAVE FAITH in god but dont act like a wimp. Fight back and prey.

I wonder how you are today. You're welcome to conact me personally and we can talk.
Did you know that when the Holy Spirit is inside of you you no longer feel fear or alone? You feel as if you are swathed in cotton and uplifted. You feel as if you're always smling on the inside. And your anxiety disappears - you get this very peaceful feeling that no matter what happens God is holding you in the Palm of His Hand; the blood that Jesus shed for you is protecting you; and the Holy Spirit gives you amazing strength and confidence.

I just read this and I must sound like a "holy roller." But I can guarantee you I'm not! I just received the Holy Spirit recently - after a LIFETIME of being a lay minister and evangelist. I thought I was saved. I thought everything that happened to me was a test from God or a temptation from Satan.
Now I have the Holy SPirit inside of me and I know - there is NOTHING that can be done that will harm me because I stand with the holy trinity.

I'm telling you - it's weird and wonderful. Want to know more about my story - and it's quite a story - just contact me.

The best testimonials always come from those of us who have "been there" don't you think?

Give Meghanne the peace and strength to face her fears, and give her your abundant blessings each and every day.

I pray for you that things start going better, that you do not feel so alone. FEAR is a terrible thing, but they say most things we fear do not happen. It is like WORRY, t'is like a rocking chair, it gets us nowheres. PRAY and have FAITH and GOD will show you the way to a happier, fulfilled life.
Sometimes when one volunteers you feel better about your life and perhaps could meet a new friend thru this avenue.
MY prayers are with you.
