To the forgotten...

As the year draws to an end and the festivities come upon on us. I wondered what post to end the year with. I have a lot of items I've been working on and so excited to share with you guys but God has laid it upon my heart to do something different. I want to dedicate this last post of 2011 to the forgotten of the season; to the broken hearted. Not too many winters ago, I was among the ones struggling and even though God has brought me through it; my heart still reaches out to the hurting.

I am dedicating this post to the heartbroken, the depressed, the rejected, the lonely, the abused and the weak. The ones who feel alone in a crowded room, the ones who cry themselves to sleep, the ones who wonder how they'll make it through another day, the ones who pray for death to come but are making their own plans just in case it doesn't. I see you and so does God. He loves you SO much and wants you to know that even if your mother and father forsake you, he never will. I know it's hard but this christmas is not about gifts, friends, or even family. This season is about the Valentines gift God is giving you. It's about so rich a love that he would sacrifice his own son so that one day, you would dwell in his peace for eternity.

I want to let you know that even though it seems the world has forgotten you and no one cares, God is there and he loves you very much. I want you to hold on just a bit longer and wait for that break through you are seeking. I know it is much easier said than seen but God has a magnificent plan for you life and even thought the nights seem so long and lonely,daylight is just upon the horizon.

I am adding a video that I love and listen to when I don't feel my best. I hope it ministers to you.

My world is closing in
On the inside
But I’m not showing it
When all I am is crying out
I hold it in and fake a smile
Still I’m broken
I’m broken
Only one can understand
And only one can hold the hand
Of the broken
Of the broken

When no one else knows how I feel
Your love for me is proven real
When no one else cares where I’ve been
You run to me with outstretched hands
And You hold me in your arms

I need no explanation of why me
I just need confirmation
Only You could understand the
emptiness inside my head
I am falling
I am falling
I’m falling down upon my knees
To find the one who gives me peace
I am flying
Lord I am flying

When no one else knows how I feel
Your love for me is proven real
When no one else cares where I’ve been
You run to me with outstretched hands
And You hold me in Your arms

I have come to you in search of faith
Cause I can’t see beyond this place
Oh You are God and I am man
So I’ll leave it in Your hands

So know someone is out there thinking and praying of you.

"Fear not; you will no longer live in shame.Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you.You will no longer remember the shame of your youth
and the sorrows of widowhood
." (Isaiah 54 vs 4)

So sweet and inspirational. No one is forgotten by Him. Really ministered to me, I believe that God will remember me this upcoming 2012 with my innermost desire - to conceive, have a worry free pregnancy and birth and hold my own child in my arms : )

God Bless and remember you and yours in your hearts desires

when we get to the point where we look beyond ourselves and try to be blessings to others, it becomes obvious that we've grown even more than we think we have and that God is doing something amazing in our lives. I'm talking about you by the way, may God bless you and your family. Have a wonderful new year
