Lord we pray emotional and mental clarity. we know bad things happen to good people. We also know you told us that you would never leave us or forsake us. Father I pray for katy-follower and her situation. Help her to not lean on her own understanding but to trust you and believe that you have a plan. In life its sometimes like we are always going into a storm or just coming out of a storm. Jesus I pray in your name that you would give katy-follower strength to come out of the storm with a closer relationship with you. GOD bless you.

I hope things are going good with you, Katy. I’m praying, asking God to surround you with His love, care and comfort. May He intervene in your circumstances, give you guidance and sustain you with His peace as you lean upon Him.

Thanks Emily. But I literally feel nothing now. I've always held to eternal security... but in this situation it really feels like He's abandoned me completely... just left me in a dark pit. He's not there, and isn't hearing my prayers, so I no longer pray. The silence is cruel. How is that love?

I'm now at the point of turning my back on Him.

I’m sorry you’re going through so much. Katy. I wish I could explain why this stressful situation has been permitted to come into your life, but these are answers which lie hidden from our human understanding. But please know that God loves you and deeply cares about you. I’m praying that He will sustain you with His Spirit of comfort and peace. He is nearer than any person, and He knows your troubled heart as does no other. Remember that “the Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18). He will never fail you or forsake you. Hang in there, sister.

Thanks Emily, and appreciate the prayers. God has been very present, particularly in the last couple of days. It's been kind of miraculous... I attempted to walk away, but in doing that I ended up in an impromptu biblical discussion with someone for almost an hour, quoting various scriptures, which I had not read in some time. I then ended up back to prayer and woke up feeling very different, like a whole weight had been lifted off of me and the issue I've been dealing with, I can only describe it as God's divine intervention because I feel peace, and as if he's taken away/numbed me from how I was feeling before.

I get this feeling that this is not the end with my situation, but He's given me the ability to move forward right now, while He is working other things out. I don't see the end yet, but I know I have to trust that His timing is perfect. In the meantime I'm able to wait on Him as He's given me peace to be able to.
