    Hi to friends old and new.

    Wow its been awhile, I have been to hell and back now for over 12 months. I have been homeless alot living in womens shelters, trying to get help and get up after so much has happened. I have lost everything since moving in January 2009.

    No help yet, no breakthrough, although I know God is with me, grief is subsiding it almost wiped me out after the loss of my kids.

    I'm adapting to a new way although painful and confusing, life is not predictable!

    God Bless you all, and hi again!

    So very wonderful to hear from you. Haven't stopped praying for you - knowing you were going through very troubled times.

    Love, Judy

    You will always be in my prayers. I think you must be an inspiration to others around you. My guess is that you have helped a lot of people while in those shelters. God works through people that have a faith as strong as yours.
    God bless you, Cynthia

    Thankyou for prayers and kind words, I hope everyone is having a peaceful Easter.

    In Australia Christianity is not widely accepted so I find it difficult, I have had so much condemnation and abuse, I feel very isolated, yet I know I have Jesus, that this life is temporary.

    God works in mysterious ways, the last 15 months I have had so much strife, I left behind almost a decade of strife and suffering in hopes of some peace and to get on with my life. I lost my kids, my friends, my job, my health, my independence, everything I'd ever known. I trusted God and I trusted my new fiancee.

    I have been trying to escape since june last year, yet there has been no help yet, God has other plans, I have left 3 times, I'm now pregnant.

    In the homeless times, I prayed and believed God would provide me a home, yet the system is overloaded, the world is consumed by power, greed, drugs, booze and idols.

    I have been helped by not one Christian, yet the most broken of souls, the unbelievers have helped me when I just couldn't go on. God uses us all in so many ways, we are in the end times, life is harsh.

    Like Jonah, I made a bad choice and went the wrong way 15 months ago, I know God will help me get back, I have a different faith now, lots of things have changed me.

    So I stand and wait and believe, and try to make better choices, and hope for a miracle!

    I'm really sick right now and can't do much, I cling to God everyday.
