Words have power. Written words provide proof. You can read them, and reread them whenever you want. They can speak life to someone who needs encouragement. They can speak death to someone who is being deceived. The choice lies within you. How is it that you want people to remember you? Encourager...that is the gift that God has laid on my heart. To use my written, spoken, and/or sung words to lift people up. To be one link in their road to healing, restoration, joy. I have been without those things, and I claim them to be mine again. If you want me to seek God on a prayer for a specific situation...that is why I am here. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to pray God's Word of Life over you.

Just a hint of true love
We understand disappointment. We understand feeling like we are a burden. We understand feeling like the third wheel. We understand being heard but not listened to. We understand crying out in our heart and wishing someone heard it without having to had speak it from our mouth. We understand faking that we are fine because we don't want to feel guilt.
Numbers 23:19 “God is not man, that He should lie, or a son of man, that He should change His mind. Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not fulfill it?”
What we don't understand, is that God is nothing like us. We can have attributes of Him...but He cannot be like us. He always wants to hear our voice. He always has time for His children to run to Him and lay at His feet. He always sees what is in our heart...no matter what we choose to say out of our mouth. He will always seek the 'real' you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Don't pretend to understand it...but never stop trying to. The more that you seek to find the realness of His love for you, the closer you will get to loving others the way He intended it to be. =)
Go back to your first love. Christ. Before you started the comparison of Him to human-nature. Before you were betrayed by a believer, and somehow He got the blame. Know that those things were not meant to harm you...but to bring you closer to Him. To prove that He is always worthy of your trust. He is always faithful to your end.
