The History: A couple of years ago, I started journaling my prayers and God's responses to them. I told my friends about this, they were really interested. I told my Pastor about it and he said, how about sharing those on line. When I asked God, He said, my words are for you, but not just for you. And, here we are...I hope He speaks to you in these words.

Hitting bottom...

My prayer:
My God, I am worried about the people who are at the end of their rope tonight. Good, amazing, and wonderful people who know you and love you and are having trouble having the strength and the hope to go on. God, sometimes this life is so hard. Sometimes, it does not seem worth it. 


I say that it does not "seem" worth it because, fact is, when I am that down, if I give it a little time, I see the amazing wonder of life with you. I see the purpose. I see the value and the preciousness that this life is. But, sometimes it is hard to hold on in the "valleys" in the dark times, long enough to see the light that you have for us. 


God, I pray that you continue to bring people around me to encourage me when I am down. I pray God that you help me to be that encouragement to other people. God I pray and ask that you make me sensitive to when people are at that point and then give me the words and the actions that will bring your comfort and your hope to them. 


What God Said Tonight:
You have yet to see what I can do in the face of tragedy. I do my best work when there is no hope. I do my best work when people are at the end of their rope and without hope. Those are the times that I can really get close to my people. Those are the moments they are most likely to let me.in. 


Don't get me wrong. I hate tragedy and pain. I hate to see my children suffer. 


But I love that I get to be their way out. I love the closeness that can come out of it. I am hope and light and I will come to the rescue of anyone who asks. I will come and provide a way out to all those who ask. I am here, ready and waiting to be your answer, your hope. I am here waiting. 


I love you daughter. Keep living a life that is an example of hope so people know who to call when they hit bottom. I am ready.

  1. Lamentations 3: 19-24 I'll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness, the taste of ashes, the poison I've swallowed. I remember it all—oh, how well I remember—the feeling of hitting the bottom. But there's one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope:
    God's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up. They're created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over). He's all I've got left.
