Thank you... to everyone who prayed for me and who continues to pray for me. I feel as if I am in a dark tunnel... with no way out. Days pass go by before I am able to laugh or even smile. I feel so broken and I wonder if I will ever find happiness again. I wonder if I can ever return to the person I was. I've lost touch with most of my friends because they are angry at me for being unable to fulfill social obligations. People are insisting that I come chat with them or call... keep in contact how do I explain to them that I go to sleep every night praying that I do not have to wake up the next morning. How to I explain to them the amount of energy it takes for me to get out of bed, let alone force myself to have one small meal a day. How do I try to be normal for them? I am aware that some of my friends need me. I've always been the girl they went to when they were in trouble. Now I'm the one in trouble and I can't face them. I can't do what they are asking me to do. I have no idea what to do with myself anymore. I've given up on the idea of ever being happy.

Emily, God will raise you out of this pit you are in. He will, just try and remain faithful that He will. My signature says so. God bless you.

1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.

(Psalm 40:1-3 NIV)

Do you know, that in the last day or two, you've attempted to make others smile, and you even said someone made you laugh. I think you may actually be seeing the light of your tunnel, though you don't realize you are.

Emily, you're nearing the light of the tunnel, I've noticed it too. Keep clinging to Christ! You're in our prayers, dear sister. :)

Saw a picture of a group of women armed with riffles on hills in Iraq that are gathered to fight against ISIS. These women themselves have been classified as a terrorist group called KPP. Some sort of Kurdish political group. I don't know enough. Things change slightly when there is a common enemy I guess.
*Correction PKK. It's was interesting. A lot of people were like, yeah! Go ladies! Have the 'get the bad guys' mentality. Women with rifles off to war, feminist image pops into mind. Especially since what ISIS have been doing to the women victims. And then they realize that these women are a part of a group that has been classified as terrorists as well. Then it's like, oh.

Yep, the PKK were fighting the Iraqi and Turkish governments demanding a separate state. They are blacklisted and are a terrorist orrganisation. The ISIS is a common enemy to every non-Sunniite in that region. Which is why they have all joined hands together. The US has armed the PKK to fight ISIS but this is a big, big mistake in my opinion. Once the ISIS is defeated, these Kurds will use the same weapons given by the US and fight against the governments.

That is Ms. Over-reacting-kitty. Lol

Do you think ISIS will ever be defeated? They are recruiting. Some specialists say that the whole purpose of beheading the journalist was to get the world to see. The world is appauled, but there might small population of people might be drawn to their cause, would be attracted and result in an increase to their recruitment throughout the world.

Yes they will be defeated. Two reasons-
1. Their fight is not a local fight anymore. They have upset all the world's superpowers. Sooner or later they will be bombed into oblivion.

2. They are fighting on two fronts - Syria and Iraq. Not good for them because it spreads their resources thin.

I hope you are right. I hope this does not spread like a cancer throughout the world.

ISIS may be stopped. But we cannot stop other splinter groups from forming. Or from new terrorist organizations to spring up. Unless we humans have a common enemy we will always fight each other.

EXACTLY! We need an alien menace to come in and threaten to wipe out all humanity so we can all come together to face it down.

Or... maybe I watched too much Robotech as a kid.

Hey guys... I've been having conflict in my heart and mind and then something occurred in my family that also brought back a lot of painful emotional memories... My initial instinct was to draw near God and draw away from people... But now I see that it is not my own. God revealed these thoughts to me...

Ezekial 16:15 But you thought your fame and beauty were your own. So you gave yourself as a prostitute to every man who came along. Your beauty was theirs for the asking.

Yes. I know it's important to draw near to God when we are going thru difficult times... But what He spoke to me was... Raine, it wasn't you who brought you this far... It wasn't you who allowed relationships to develop... Everything that you are that is and of beauty is from me.

I try to run away... I try to hide... But in the end, everything I have that is beautiful is from The Lord, even the difficult relationships. It isn't up to me how to handle those relationships... It's up to Him. They have belonged to Him from the very beginning. So I will try my best to not worry and simply embrace them with joy as God has called me to do. I will try my best to stop running away from those relationships.

Thank you God. All this beauty I see within me is all from you.
