Sometimes life rolls along smoothly. Sometimes it gets bumpy. I am not saying anything that is new to anyone. But right now is definitely one of the bumpy times. Sometimes the flaws in my life are far more obvious to me. Sometimes I get caught up in the things I don’t have. Sometimes I feel like I haven’t any purpose or any place. Sometimes I feel like there isn’t a whole lot of reason to keep looking forward. Sometimes I feel un-needed, even after I have been reassured that that isn’t true. Sometimes I wonder what purpose I am serving by being here. Sometimes I can’t seem to hear Him even though I am trying so hard. Sometimes I can’t see past my own thoughts. Sometimes I need help. Sometimes people offer to help by asking me what I feel I need. Most of the time, I don’t know the right answer.

  1. Melissa-
    I think more often than not, I feel the same way you do. I often wonder what my purpose of being here is. I don’t seem to benefit anyone really. When I try to reach out and be a friend to people, I usually get pushed away. I do believe that you are needed. You’re needed as a wife, as a daughter… and as a friend. I could always, always use a good friend to talk to. I still pray and ask God if building a friendship with you is the right thing to do. Never once have I received a negative answer or feeling. A person can never have too many friends and it could never hurt to try to make a new one. I do miss you. Christmas is very close, and I hope you and Dave have a wonderful one. I hope your holidays are filled with happiness and love. Christmas has become very commercialized, but I know that you and I both know the true meaning of it. Wish your family a Merry Christmas for me. You can e-mail me anytime. I would really love to hear from you.


  2. Just some stuff that immediately sprang to mind:

    “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then I shall know even as also I am known.” (1 Cor 13:12)

    We all have our down days. Don’t forget that even though you can’t hear Him, He hasn’t stopped listening.
