“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13
If you need prayer I would love to pray for you. Please feel free to post your request as a comment below. I also encourage you to pray for others that you see posted here as well. I believe God loves it when His children come together and lift each other up. Also, if you want to celebrate for answered prayers in your life, I’d love to hear about those as well. Maybe your story can inspire others. 🙂
hi I believe that I found your blog for a reason, I myself too am going thru an addiction problem and it affects my family, I believe in God and go to church sometimes and pray, i try not to sweat the little things, but i cant separate what is little and what is major, when i don’t care, other tell me i should, im a very confused women and iam fearful about my future and im afraid to talk to a professional. pray for me and my family please during this time of Christmas cuz there is no Christmas spirit at my house or in my heart. even though i love Jesus, i have many confusing life events and im scared to make permanent decisions. write back k……mia california
Mia, I will definitely be praying for you. For me there were several steps to overcoming my addictions. First,you need to realize how much God loves you. He ADORES you and created you for a specific purpose. No matter what you’ve done or how difficult your earthly relationships are, He loves you like crazy. You need to focus on what HE says about you, not others. Reading the Bible is the best way to get to know God. Secondly, I think it’s extremely important that you find a good accountability group or counselor. I would suggest finding a church home that will accept you unconditionally and walk with you on your journey. You need a safe place to go to share your struggles with someone that can point you to truth. I know FIRST HAND God can restore relationships and bring people out of addictions. Cry out to God and tell Him exactly how you feel. He wants to comfort you and He will! I’ll be praying for you.
I needed to see this so much today. My 10 year old daughter struggles with SPD, ADD, Anxiety, Depression-all while being gifted and a ‘tween’. I try so hard to be understanding of her needs, but it is often very overwhelming. There were many times this week that I cried or wanted to cry. I’m so worried about her because I just want her to be healthy and happy. She is homeschooled this year. This year, I pulled her out of what I felt was a toxic environment-a brick and mortar school. I struggle every day to find things that I think would be helpful for her and support her in her journey, But, I often feel like I’m failing. Please pray that I can continue to find strength, patience, guidance, and support and the right tools that will help her be a happy and confident person.
