    I'm requesting prayers that the Father will provide or show me how to understand recent events...and to have hope for the future. The past two weeks I've prayed hard for a certain outcome, for hope. Today that was destroyed, like He just sent me to His voicemail. I do not question the sovereignty of the Father. I would however like to understand the why, and to know if there is any hope in this situation. In 2012, I was in a much worse position in the same sort of mindset, and I almost killed myself. I do not want to get that rock bottom again, but right now I see no hope. Only He can get me out of this....yet I am not heard, or at the very least cast aside.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    As an aside I realize having faith is one thing. Unfortunately I've seen no hope for the last ten years...last summer I saw hope, and it has continued on a downward trend, coming to today. I can't just sit and have a "maybe" of hope...I really need to have some realization of hope, I can't keep this up.

    I pray for you that you will grow in the Lord as you read his Word and pray.
    Dear Father, bless and heal in Jesus name.

    I feel as though God hates me. Everyone I know has happiness and those who care about them. The one time I get even remotely close...it just blows up...

    What does Jesus say in the Bible about hope?

    There is no biblical promise about hope in this world. Sure there is hope for eternity, but that still requires me to be miserable on Earth. I can't understand what makes me so horrible a person that everyone else I know can be happy and have those that love them, and I'm not allowed to have that.

    See Jeremiah 17v7-8. One thing that I know for sure is, the more you allow your feelings to cloud your spiritual senses, the longer it will also take for you to come out of this. That is why Jesus says " God is spirit and those who worship Him do so in spirit and in truth. Ask the Lord to show you how to fix your eyes upon Christ and He will, because He is faithful.

    Even so it won't change the fact that I'm alone...and I can't continue like this.

    Everyone may seem happy. People put up fronts lots of times, though. But that doesn't help your pain and your need to feel cared about and connected. I pray you will be given understanding and guidance and healing and good companionship.
