He Heard My Cry

I found my heart was breaking, longing, hungry for meaning, purpose.

I was missing connection, community, I-have-your-heart-memorizd friendships.

I felt alone, scared, isolated, lonely.

I wondered why this, why now, why here, and what do I do to change it?

I saw closed doors all around me and was too tired to try one more time to push them open.

I just cried.

And the Lord heard my cry....

I love the Lord; for the Lord hath heard the words of my prayer.
Psalm 116:1

4 days later, I found myself being encouraged, comforted, and loved on by two of my close college friends whom I haven't seen in over 5 years.

God put together a I-love-you-no-matter-what-because-I-love-your-heart girlfriends weekend, and I cannot help but just stand in awe of how He knows WHAT we need, WHEN we need it and exactly HOW it needs to happen.

Mood: Thankful :)

Friendship it has no survival value; rather it is one of those things
that give value to survival
- C. S. Lewis

Lindsey, we all need one another.  So glad you have friends who can love on you and pray for you.  I went on a mission trip to Haiti way back in 1980 when Baby Doc was in power.  An amazing experience and so sad to see all the poverty there.  Thank you for visiting Heart Choices.  I know we all deal with discouragement at one time or another.  Praise God that we can come to Him.

blessings and love,

That's so awesome, Lindsey!  I love how God does that!  Jeremy and I were just talking about relationship and community and how blessed we feel to have that in our lives.  I take it for granted sometimes!

yeah...I think I have taken it for granted until this current season of my life.  It causes me to appreciate those that I have even more and look forward to a season of a community of proximity SOON! :)
