I’ve decided to write this post because of a young woman whose blog I have been following for some time, and who needs a touch from our loving God.
She is at the point of the kind of despair where the only way out she perceives might be to take her own life. I know there are many in blogoshphere that can identify with that thought at some point in their lives, myself included.
She is not a Christian but from my understanding has a Jewish heritage while not following any beliefs at this point in her life. I do not know her name but only her first initial ‘A’. In the times I pray for her I prefer to use a name but it is only one that I chose and that is Abigail. While she does not talk about her beliefs, whatever they may be I do tell her that I am a Christian and that I pray for her, and she does call on God in some of her deepest moments. Lately she has done so only because she hopes that He will take her out of her anguish.
This young woman has some support but because of distance and other factors not a lot is available to her!
‘A’ has several diagnosed mental disorders including Bipolar Disorder and Depression. She is in a hospital for others with similar or very much worse conditions. This in itself is a barrier to her being able to see any normalcy possible in her future. Her hospitalization has gone on for three years and she is growing so weary of thinking she will ever be well.
In this season of sharing gifts with one another, I would like to share the gift of hope, encouragement, love and most importantly for this young woman….healing!
God’s heart I know is broken because He loves us all so much and he sees the pain in ‘A’s heart, soul and mind.
Normally I would never ask for you to ‘comment’ on a post, but in this case I am going to ask you to do so....keeping in mind that she is not a Christian but that there are those in this huge world of ours that simply care about her and are praying …if you feel led to say that. I am going to copy and paste these comments to her site, for her to see.
My hope is that she will just feel loved beyond what she could believe…..Thanks ….Diane
Additional Note Dec. 30th..I am going to hold all of the comments made until tomorrow…New Year’s Eve….the day before the beginning of a New Year and ‘new hope’….Diane
