my transparent heart.



there are days ..

praying she'll some how some way be brought 
out of this brainwashing, this evil, this trance.
in the meantime, sometimes forgetting how to best live fully rather than this mere existence of perfunctory endeavors, i venture to the next moment, hour, or day .. and now years, with a gasp, wondering why and shaking my fist toward the heavens .. yet knowing that without a doubt no matter the nightmare lived out in real time, i'm not abandoned {by God}. 
and with desperation i breath deep the gifted air.

I cannot imagine your pain. But I can care. And I can pray.

Oh, Sherry. My heart aches for yours. I'm grasping for words to try to help, but I'm always afraid they would unintentionally hurt too. Just know that you're so loved...by me, but more importantly by Him. And I'm praying.

Sherry, it is so hard to see someone we love who is brainwashed or not thinking clearly in life. My heart goes out to you, my dear friend. Keep praying. God listens to us always and knows what is aching in our hearts. Thinking of you tonight.

love, ~Sheri

My heart is for you, even though we've never met or clasped hands in prayer. And yes- my prayers this morning, as I drink my first cup of Coffee, are for you, dear Sherry.

I am very sad that it should be this way; I wish it were not so.

God bless you and give you his assurance and strength.

Precious Woman of God. Thank you for bein honest and vulnerable. That takes courage. Grieving with you and praying for you all. How can this even happen??? It is an outrage and pain i can not for the life of me figure why anyone would want to take part in. Evil, deception, blinded...i don't know. But God ,our hope, our life. He alone is faithful. I certainly don't understand how that all works, i cling to the truth of it. With much love and hugs and prayer for you~tammy

Dear Friend,
If the people we pass on the streets each day, or even our close friends, really knew what was going on in our hearts and minds.

Just read this Psalm at Bible study tonight & thought of you. "I will rejoice & be glad in your lovingkindness, Because You have seen my affliction; You have known the troubles of my soul." Psalm 31:7 (The whole Psalm is really wonderful.)

Always, dear friend, in my heart and prayers. Knowing what this feeling is and though coming out on the other side of it is not easy, but know please, one day there will be the other side to all this suffering. You have been an immense comfort to me since you told your story. What a deep sigh my soul took that day, when I knew I was not alone in this. Father, give this dear woman strength. Hugs. Corinne

I've tried twice to comment on this post, but my words seem so inadequate and trite. So I'll just simply say that I love you dear lady. ♡♡♡
