With God All is possible.

My brothers and sisters in God-
I have prayed to God many times and I just don't know what to do, and I feel all I can do is reach out for more prayer and hope for the best. I have lost my job for the third time this year and am suffering without money to buy the necessities. I do not have a home of my own and where I do live is not the safest. I suffer from a major health issues and have since I was a child. Mentally, and physically I am at my all-time worst. I know that the Lord above listens to us all when we pray, although because of my health issue I do not attend the local Orthodox Church. Many times I have felt evil after me as a child and even know, yet all I can do is Pray.  I come to this board in hopes to pray along with all of you for everyone that may need help just like I do at this time. I pray the Good Lord blesses everyone that is part of this site, and keeps all of you happy, healthy and safe.

May the Lord remember you in your tribulation, and may He have mercy on you for the rest of your life.

Leah,

I'd just like to share some advice based on my own personal experience; I hope it lifts you up as it surely did to me:

I find that it helps in times where one is overwhelmed with such trouble to the point that one fails to see any good in their life, to take a step back and truly focus on even the slightest good that one may find in their life, whether it be in the present or in the past, and to truly thank God from the deepest of one's heart for even that slightest glimpse of Grace. Remembering also that that slightest glimpse of Grace is a glimpse that many around you and before you may have never experienced, one's gratitude to God is enhanced to the point of even feeling unworthy of that glimpse of goodness that they experience or have experienced in the past, in spite of all the trouble that surrounds them at the present. One may start to find His Grace flowing more abundantly at that point.

P.S. My above advice was not intended to presume anything on your behalf; it is just general advice.

May the Lord make haste to you and deliver you.

been there, and I think mayn others have. Have hope that with God's help, you will be able to lift yourself from the "mud pit" you find yourself in now. Faith is important, but so is hope and a litte determination.

Update. Smiley My brothers and sisters in God- I praise God, and thank him for helping me this week with a new career path and hope. I just wanted to let those of you know who read my post and who prayed for me, that God answered a specific prayer this week, I am truly blessed by his grace and pray he continues to guide me to the true light of Jesus. I pray the Lord opens his arms to you as he did to me and he welcomed me in, for I had lost all hope. God heard my cry and answered. PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!  THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH.....
