Dangerous Ground

My life has been interrupted. God is revealing Himself in ways I can't grasp. I feel like I am praying to a stranger. It is my fault. The whole time I was in the hospital I ignored God. I shouldn't be surprised that God is distant. My overall battle deals with misunderstanding. I am confused and this is causing me to fear the future. I don't trust God right now. I could have child like faith if I struggled for it. But, I am too lazy. I need a prophetic word. So friends pray for me and if God tells you anything pass it along. It can be a bible verse, a word of encouragement, or a word of knowledge. I need something. I am desperate. I want to know Him and I want to understand how He sees me.

i want to be honest with you... and possibly a little direct… and chances are I will type a lot… but here goes. nothing about God has changed. doesn't matter if you feel like it has or if you think it has, God's word is still the same. how He looks at his beloved still remains the same. His heart stays the same and He never changes. so knowing that: stand! rise up, beloved of God, you might warrior! God has repeatedly shown me that it doesn't matter what i think of me, all that matters is what He thinks of me. remember this one?
1Pt 1:6-9
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
your faith is of greater worth than gold! it is of greater worth than a trip to a conference. so exercise that faith! there's nothing better that you can do right now than believe right in the face of adversity and accusation. if you believe that God is calling you to be a prayer missionary, then go be a prayer missionary. you don't need a conference to tell you to follow the desires of your heart, they are there for you to follow. take a step and believe that if it is incorrect, the Creator of the heavens and the earth will be able to close the door and redirect you. still need a word? here's one from God's word:
Ps 91:9-16
If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the Lord, who is my refuge-- then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. "Because Tamara loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue her; I will protect her, for she acknowledges my name. She will call upon me, and I will answer her; I will be with her in trouble, I will deliver her and honor her. With long life will I satisfy her and show her my salvation.
sometimes life just hands you a turd. and sometimes, there's no explanation why. but i do know that "in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." stop looking back. keep looking forward. Stop beating yourself up and blaming yourself. today is a new day for you ;)
