    Default :-(

    So, as you may know from previous posts, I've had a bad few years. I've lost my mum and had a few other bad things happen, I've been left in loads of debt and even tho me and my husband work two jobs each to try and support our family, it's just not enough to get us back on track. I've no family and friends to talk to, so I pray a lot. I go to church and my priest told me to go to a support group to talk to people, but I honestly just don't have time. That's why I joined here. He also told me to set up a gofund me page which I did, no one donated, which doesn't bother me, my problems are mine, no one else's. (I only really set it up to see if it could help). Anyway now because I shared the page on my twitter account, I'm being called all sorts of names, just for asking for help. I just really don't no what to do. I'm not a bad person im just having a bad time at the minute and need some help/guidance. We're loosing our home, and I just feel like I'm letting my children down :-(

    Lottie,

    I'm new here as of today pretty much and was just browsing the introductions for ideas on how to proceed for my own, but then I notices your non-smiley. I will try to make my first post here as a servant.

    I have few people to talk to as well, and I've been slipping with my ideas of life goals and possibly not being aligned with "thy will be done", so I decided to join here. Loneliness can be rough.

    I've lost most of my close loved ones over the years and I fear losing more of them in the future. But, in my listening and reading, I think I've learned that there is is a certain amount of time and energy to spend in grief before it crosses over into a covetous activity or expense of energy. It was harsh to hear at first, but just like the love for money, material or status; a desire of people can be just the same, especially if we don't trust God in his plan and understand that each individual has their own journey and timeline with God, regardless of our relationship with an individual.

    I don't have a lot to comment on about money, except that I know debt is not of God, but a tool of the devil to bind us. In my younger years, it was all about money and providing for my future. I've managed to always have a small surplus and I'm thankful for that, but it was also somewhat of a conscious effort, and I'm not sure the effort was always aligned with "Thy will be done". I have nothing to offer on that because I don't know if God will one day use finances as a trial for me.
