i don't usually post in here; let alone make threads... and this is a bit long ... but i just wanted to share how God has been working in my life lately! :grin::grin::grin:

about a month ago my boyfriend broke up with me. and i was hurt, but i'm glad it happened, because it totally changed my outlook on life. i realized that i had totally compromised my values to be with him. before him, i wanted nothing to do with drugs (only talking about marijuana), but when he came into the picture, i let it slide. i used to want to save myself until marriage, but my better judgment went straight out the window while he was in the picture. i was ashamed of how i compromised many of my values to be with him... and i felt genuinely disgusted with myself.

well 2 days ago, i read a scripture... i need to get my bible study on, because i can't recall the name of the book or the verse... i think it's in Psalms... but it says:
"As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us".

and that moved me to tears... i've never really asked for forgiveness for some of the more serious sins i've done. i thought to myself, "i want forgiveness, but won't God be even more furious with me if i accidentally stumble again in the future?"
but that's kind of like saying, "why take a shower? i'm just going to get dirty again". if i'm genuine in asking for forgiveness, and i do my darndest to make sure that i don't blatantly disobey God in that way again, then everything will work out.

so i prayed from the bottom of my heart, tears streaming down my face, asking God to forgive me, to draw me closer than ever before to Him, all of that good stuff. and i cried like i've never cried before. but they weren't sad tears... for the first time in my entire life, i didn't feel weighed down with guilt. i felt so happy and thankful that i was free of all that STUFF i was carrying around! i'm sure the other girls on my floor think i'm insane now, after hearing all that sobbing and praising (i live in a dorm with very thin walls), but oh well! :grin:

then i prayed another prayer. i asked God that, if me and ex weren't meant to be together, then please remove all feelings i have for him. and also, i asked God to help me make better decisions, so i wouldn't fall into another pit like the one i just climbed out of.

this was all at like, 1:45 a.m. tuesday night. so afterwards, i composed myself and went to sleep...

and not 5 minutes later, my other ex (the one who came BEFORE ex mentioned earlier... and the only guy i ever loved...) called me, out of the blue. i hadn't talked to him in weeks, and was very surprised to see his name on the caller ID. i knew that there was just one reason why he'd be calling at 2 a.m. it's amazing how hard the devil will work to try and knock you down when you're up! so i picked up the phone, he asked me to spend the night, i said no thanks, and hung up! God is Good!!!!

also, fast forward to last night. ex 1 (guy who just broke up with me) asked me to come over, so we could talk. it wasn't unreasonably late (about 8 p.m.), so I went. we cooked dinner, and all of a sudden he had a revelation. he told me he made a huge mistake, proceeded to sincerely apologize for everything he's ever done for me, and said that he wanted to take me back!

but i realized that everything that i felt for him just a week ago, had completely disappeared. i thanked him for his company, and left. less than 24 hours before, i asked God to remove my feelings for this man if it wasn't meant to work out... and here i was, completely not pressed over the fact that he asked to have me back!

ok... to sum this all up... God answers prayer!!! and i'm soooo thankful!!! and soo happy with how He's moving things around in my life right now!!!

(ok i'm done :grin:)

It's something about crying out before Him that really seems to move Him. I guess it's because those cries come from a very real and genuine place. He loves you Chica and will surely keep you covered. Stay focused on Him. You have yet to see the true blessings of the Lord.
