Well I have a lot to pray for so you will just have to bear with me. I guess Ill have to give you a little background on me first. I have a bit of a past, and i have done a lot of things that I am not proud of and all my issues led to me almost commiting suicide. But then I found God and turned my life around. Now I use my life to lead others to Christ. I guess I give off a trustworthy vibe, so I seem to attract people who need help, and sometimes I will deliberately seek them out. Because i have been down so low and have ecperince in these areas, I am usually able to help. But there are some pretty big things that have come up that I need some help with. First of all is my friend whose name i cant say. She drinks. She has sex. A lot. She is only 14 and she lost her virginity when she was 12. She feels like the only people that care about her are me and Bryan (the guy she has sex with). Bryan is 17 by the way, and they dont even go out. they are "friends with benifits". She doesnt see that Bryan is just taking advantage of her. She says he knows Christ, but she really doesnt. One time we were discussing faith and why I dont do that, and she said "just because youre a Christian doesnt mean you cant f**k". I try to help her but she just doesnt want to be helped. I guess thats all I have to say about her. Now the next one. I have another friend whose name I wont mention because he might read this. Anyways, he comes from a rough background (his dad is a crackhead and never there so his mom has to raise 3 kids on her own in a not so nice part of town). I have been keeping him out of drugs for a while now, and two weeks ago I kept him from commiting suicide. But I think that this weekend he might have tried marajuana. I am worried that this will snowball into somthing huge and trash his life. I think thats all I have to say about him. And now my final friend that I need help with. I wont mention her name either because she has friends who might read this. She has massive family problems and they are affecting her whole life. Her parents went through a nasty divorce and he mom is a recovering drug addict. She just doesnt feel much love frome anyone in her family. Especially her mom, even though I know for a fact that her mom loves her more than anything, but she doent love her mom back. It is destroying her mentally. She is having a hard time forgiving her mom for some things that she did. I worry for her mom too, because every addict needs a reson to quit, and she is her moms reason. Im worried that if she takes that reason away that her mom might relapse. I thank God that she knows Christ. I hate to immagine what would happen if she didnt. Well I guess thats all about her. Its just that now that I have made all these other peoples problems my problems, I am starting to feel overwhelmed. Its like I was drowning, and I finally made it out of the water, but now my friends are drowing and calling out for me to save them, so I try to. But now its like they are grabing hold of me and trying to drag me down with them. This has messed me up a lot lately, but this Sunday i went out to the lake where i could be alone and I thought/prayed/listened for a solid two hours and that helped a lot. I just ask that you pray for all my friends that i mentioned, and for God to give me strength to hold my head above water and help them however i can. Thank you so much for your prayers, and Im sorry for making this so long. I started typing ang the words just started coming. If you want to know any specifics (names and such) just post a comment with your email address and what you want to know and i will get it to you. Thanks again and God bless all of you.
