I've been through some really rough patches over the past few months and feel totally lost. I've turned into a shell of my former self. I've prayed so hard but don't feel like I've got any answers from Him.
Have you gone through this and what did you do to feel like He was on your side again and you weren't drifting out there alone?

For a moment in time I lost my house, my car and had to move into an apartment very far away from my family. I felt as though God left me hanging. During that time I made a "special" effort to seek him diligently beyond my circumstances but held on to him inspite of. All I can say everything I thought I lost I got back double. The word is true Psalm 9:10 And they that know thy name wil put their trust in thee for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

I too have gone through times like this. But I just remember that God loves me even when I don't feel like He does. Also, God always answers us - we just may not recognize the answers because we have our hearts set on another answer, KWIM?
Have you given the situation over to God for Him to work it through? Sometimes we have to let go and let God.
Feel free to email me privately. I have been where you are now (((HUGS)))

We all go through dry spells and desert times, but remember God has promised to never leave or forsake us. Don't let your feeling of distance from God make you think He's not there. Sometimes He allows us to go through the desert to help us realize our need for Him and to get us to reach a little further and strive to get a little closer. Stay in the word and continue to communicate with God. He is there listening to you, you will break through. Read the book of Psalm, it is a beautiful reminder of how no matter our circumstance, we can approach God with all the experiences of our life and He will reach back with love and faithfulness to bring us out of even the lowest and darkest places. I'll be praying for you!
