I hope this post finds you well. I am just letting you all know that I am going to be taking a bit of a hiatus from my usual blog posts. I can’t really offer you an explanation except that I am going to be working on something else for a bit. I’ll be working on a journal, to be exact. Who knows, I may get it published someday.
However, all you need to know is that I desperately need prayers from all of you reading this right now. Right after graduation, God allowed life to throw me a very serious curveball, and I need time to work through the many emotions running through me. I need prayers for strength, for me not to lose my positivity, for me not to lose my trust in God’s plan, and for me to work through a lot of anger and despair. If you really want to know specifics, you know how to reach me, on facebook or here, but I won’t be talking about anything on my blog for the present time. Maybe later, when I come up for a breath. Thank you to those who have been there for me recently. But right now, the only thing I can ask for is prayer. I am having a very hard time going to God right now for comfort. I know I’ll get there eventually, but like I said, right now, I need a break. Thank you in advance for your prayers. God is faithful and I just hope right now that I can believe enough in the power of prayer to get myself through this difficult period in my life. Talk to you soon.
While I do not know what you are going through personally I do understand what you are going through emotionally. After my engagement ended I went through these exact emotions and still struggle with some today. I know that God has a plan, even though we cannot see it during the difficult times. I will be praying for you to continue to seek God even when it is difficult…I know how hard that can be.
Hey, Melissa, I am so sorry to hear about your engagement. Thank you so much for your prayers. I’ll keep you in mine as well! Thank you for the encouragement! I miss you!
I am so proud of you, not that I have the right. I don’t keep in touch with former students, but I was curious about your post. My days at CSCS were a learning experience for me as well as an opportunity to teach students. I am so impressed with the woman you have become. You have a wonderful way of communicating your thoughts and feelings and I applaud your willingness to share.
I do not know what personal struggles you are going through, but God does. As with all of your other trials, God will carry you through to the other side. My prayers are with you. You are amazing. You are a blessing.
Thank you so much, Ms. Mandell! It’s so great to hear from you. And thank you for all of your kind words! I hope you are doing well and I know you are right about God carrying me. This is certainly one of those times.
