I had written about my long-distance relationship last week... and then deleted it all—because it just felt whiney...

Well—that relationship is no longer an issue... What started out as his telling me he wanted to “slow things down” suddenly became a closed-door...  I agreed to slow down... and then he wanted to end it.  It’s almost like he was wanting me to call it off so that he didn’t have to...  What a chicken-shit...  or coward?  

Several years ago, when I was arguing with the Lord about the man I wanted - He told me to pray for a “strong man“...  So I started doing that...  Little did I know that he would finally bring me into a serious relationship with someone I had known for over a decade - someone who I had always thought was a strong man...  But also, little did I know this man would turn out to not be the man I thought he was...  and that he would hurt me even worse than all the others in my life had...

I don’t even know what I’m saying....  but I guess I’m crying out for your prayers...  You don’t need to respond to this - just please lift me up in prayer for healing...  My heart is so broken at the moment that it physically hurts...

Thank you!
AnneMarie

    • Bind up this broken heart, Father, as only you can do. Bring your peace, which is beyond our understanding, and fill AnneMarie with a sense of your presence and comfort. Lead her in all wisdom as she seeks to find the path You have marked out for her, to live as the woman you have created her to be. May she be a light to others whose hearts have been broken, so that she may comfort them with the same comfort you have given her. In Jesus name, Amen.

    • I was just like annie...I was searching so much that God had to slow me down..He showed me that women should never be the ones looking for a man because we tend to find the wrong ones...When I let go and let God work on my behalf...My husband found me..(with a little nudge from me..lol)

      I’ll keep you in my prayers!!!

    • ♥ Remember, when one door closes, another opens.

      I look back on the men in my life that broke my heart. If I had been with any one of those men when I got sick, I would now be alone.  

      The right one came along for me, and the right one will come along for you also!!

      Love and light!

    • AnneMarie,  

      I am so sorry, and know where you are right now all too well.  It honestly does get better, although it probably doesn't seem as though it ever will.  The lights do come back on, and things look better once they do.

    • Thanks ladies.... so many of you are saying “the right one will come along“.... well, I’ve been waiting for 41 years and it hasn’t happened yet...  I’ve lost hope and faith in it happening...  But thank you for your kinds words....

    • Don’t give up yet. I know it’s hard and I know it’s easier to lose hope, however, if you can just hold on to an idea that there is a light at the end of the tunnel...it will happen.  You see we are all authors of our own stories, it’s not suppose to be easy, it is almost never is....but when it happens it is special, so hang on a little bit longer, there is love in the horizon and you will be happy.  

      Repeat after me....THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

      Sending you big , great hugs,
      Yana

    • Teeky, mztracy, all ladies, you said it right.  

      Anne Marie, Ive been divorced and broken hearted more than I can tell you or want to count.  God will not abandon you but he wants you to learn a lesson from each relationship so that you will understand and appreciate the relationship he is readying you for.  Also, one lesson is dont fall into the same pitfalls or traps of past relationships.

      Our lives have different chapters like reading a novel and turning pages.  This chapter is over so turn the page, and get ready for what lays ahead of you.  

      I always remind myself, we were born alone, with out a partner, with God to guide us.  When we were children, we played and didnt need a man in our lives to make us whole or happy, and guess what, you still dont.  

      He will come along or not.  But be  happy with yourself until then.  Dont let him break your heart dear.  Your going to need it whole for the man that will hold it tenderly, and wont break it.

    • They always say the right man comes when you‘re not looking for him. That’s exactly what happened to me. I was broken hearted over a 6 year relationship that ended (I didn’t end it). I wanted to marry this guy. Typical problems-we met when we were both very young, etc. I was so depressed. My friend had invited me to a party just so I’d get out of the house. I didn’t want to and she practically dragged me. I saw a guy there that I knew from volleyball. We got to talking and now we‘re married. There’s a lot of the story I’m skipping but I definitely was not looking for Mr. Right when I left the house that night!

    • Similar to you, vigirl.  When I was deparately looking, I always ended up with a broken heart.  Then finally I said, what the hack with it and I wanted to make myself happy.  Then I started little here and there and finally I was at a time I did not care.  I was totally in peace with the world and here he popped and I got married.  It is like others said, when you are not looking.
      Also suggest a book called “The Rules”
