losing faith

i feel afraid. i do not understand what god wants of me. i used to feel a strong connection - people have told me it is common to have an ebb and flow with faith, but i feel lost. i feel alone - i am afraid - i do not understand why we live, what i am supposed to do, how i am supposed to serve god. i feel abandoned. i do not want to shut god away...but i do not know how to get closer. i feel lost. my heart is open and searching -- i ask for your prayers to help me find god - i reach out to you, those with faith in your hearts, or those who have struggled and found god to help me find faith.

Jesue said for I am with you even to the end of the world! That is a very long time ,dont you think?When you think God is the furterist away is usualy when he is trying the hardest to get in touch with you, by letting you feel uneasy,disturbed, as if somthing is wrong.Right?Have you just tried being by your self, and meditating on him, maybe with soft music in the background, not loud enough to catch your attention, concentrateon somthing,maybe the little spot between your eyes, let your focus go there, still your mind,and think only of nothing.Try not to go to sleep, but if you do ,dont be discourgaged,we all do some times,when we are tired. But to know what God wants of you, you really just need to learn how to ask, and how to listen! and he does most of his talking in his word,The Bible, The best one is The King James Edition, people gave their lives to copy this one down, so I pretty much believe they would not have let very may mistakes happen.I believe it to be the untarnised WORD of God, as given to the prophets of old, the disciples,and apostles. I pray I have helped you in some way. read the 91st psalm. the 1st time I realized it said that that the creator of the heavens and the earth, knew my name, I jumped up and ran around my kitchen, yelling, he knows MY name, then I called my husband at work, yelling, God knows my name, and crying, I think he thought I had finally really lost it! You see I was sort of in your shoes,I,d been in a bad car accident in 1996, my Grandaughters carseat hit me so hard it pushed my right shoulder up into my neck,causing awful pain and nerve damage,(I was a nail tech,@Educater@traveled@taught seminers, @ w/o my right hand, i was done) my head was knocked out my window(closed) causing alot of brain damage, and seizures, when I had the surgery on my shoulder, the nuerosurgon did somthing and caused my right diagphram to paralyze, so now I also have asthma for the rest of my life, and I did not win my case in court. am i bitter? No, believe it or not! If you would like to know how god has brought me thru, you can emailme@ and I will finish the story another time. May G od Bless you
