I Need Your Prayers and Your Advice

UPDATE:  This is no longer an issue in my life and I am grateful for all of the prayers that went up to free me from it!  Thank you.

I am really struggling right now.  About a year ago I fell very hard for my best friend at the time.  Shortly after, we started dating.  The first week we were dating, he became a Christian (I thought he already was, but according to him that week was when it finally became HIS faith).  Anyhow, the following week, God spoke to both of us separately--he instilled a desire to open a free medical clinic (we are both med students) for him.  Then, he spoke to us about other things, that didn't make sense until we shared them with each other.  It was such an amazing experience, sharing those precious spiritual moments with each other.

Over the course of the year we were together, many things happened.  Our friends and families all met and everyone loved and approved of everyone.  Things fell into place within our relationship and our circumstances.  Then, several things happened.  I got diagnosed with bipolar disorder and he got diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.  We left our church due to numerous issues we had after we tried, in vain, to instigate change (there was some racism and sexism going on we didn't approve of). 

Over time, we broke up.  But I can't let go of God's promises to us.  Did I make them up?  Did I read into things that weren't there?  Was I wrong to think we were meant to be together?  Or should I be patient and work on drawing near to Him and wait?  I cannot seem to let go of this man or this relationship... I can't forget what we shared and dreamed together.  We are still in contact, and go out once in awhile.  I think he feels the same and is using this time to work on his own issues, as I am doing (read my other stories about him, if you're interested!).

But I am just so scared.  I cry every day about him.  I truly am full of self-confidence and strength, but I cannot control my emotions!  I have tried to give them over to God, but that doesn't take away their sting on my heart, nor alleviate my confusion.

Everything happens for reasons we do not know.Trust that God has our interest at heart and wants the best for us.Blessings and Peace.

for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.<br />
A Preacher of God once said; <br />
Lot's of prayer is lot's of power.<br />
Little prayer is little power.<br />
and no prayer is no power at all.<br />
it is written:<br />
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."<br />
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." <br />
"we have not because we ask not."<br />
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."<br />
"In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. The peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus."<br />
"Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."<br />
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."<br />
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."<br />
"For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight."<br />
"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him." <br />
"But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord."<br />
" But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."<br />
"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."<br />
" And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." <br />
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Forgivness is a Strength not a Weakness. In Your Heart Forgive Him as Your Father in Heaven ForGave all of us when they killed him. Your Heart will sill Hurt. Love heals all wounds..You & Him need to do alot of Praying & if he is not responding or getting better., You can't let him drag you down

I met the girl of my dreams and we fell deeply in love, the best 6 years of my life, everything was amazing. Our friendship, our love , our children. I just recently found out she has been seeing someone else, and has ended our relationship. i am devastated , hurt, and angry that this could happen, when we where months away from buying our first house together. Please pray for me , i need to get through this , I cant do it on my own.

i will pray for you!

Thank you guys so much. It feels a little less daunting knowing you are praying for me. Thank you so much.

I would suggest that you stay in prayer about the sitution. Work on your own issues during this time. Enjoy the times you are able to go out this him. But don't give up the idea of someone else entering your life. Use this time to continue to grow spiritually. I remember a time very similar to this is my own life.

I will pray for you... And I hope that everything works out well for you.
