Dear Lord

It's time we talked.I really need to know what my purpose 
in life is suppose to be?I know part of my purpose is my
kids and grandkids but do I or will I truly make a difference
if I am around?I love them more than I have in my heart to
give.Do I really help or do I hinder them by my actions.I
really think sometimes it would be better if I was just a
memory and hopefully a good one.I am so confused on what 
I am suppose to do.There is nothing more I want then to 
just have a little happiness in life so I have a little hope
for the future.Right now I can't see a future I want to
stick around for.My relationship to my husband is fading
fast and I don't know what to do to fix it.How can I have
love and feelings for him if I don't even have any for myself?
I look for guidance but I am unable to find it.I'm sure at times
it is right in front of me but I am not seeing it.I wish I
could see the good in me that everyone else can see.Why
can't I just follow the rules of being human and accept it.
What is the true meaning of acceptance.Why are things so 
hard for me to understand.It's probably right in front of
me but I just don't see it.I really need to find it before it's
to late.I just need a little extra help.I am asking you for a 
little help before it's to late.I feel the only thing that I have
left to give is my life.Show me the road I need to follow.

    The road Colleen that you need to learn and follow, is that there are many experiences in life that are very difficult to swallow. Let alone deal with and move on for a more healthier tomorrow. I wish I could wave a magic wand and alieviate all your sorrow. Be well Colleen. Best Wishes Always, Bill

    Colleen, I assume you are writing your true feelings, so here goes. In every human being there are two things to be in life. What you mind dictates, and what your true self gently tries to lead you into,Love. Be the gentle side of yourself which is love from your heart. Doing this will gently slay the mind domination illusionary self of the mind. This will free you from the destructive persona of the mind. If you need to discuss this any farther, send me a soup mail. Sincerely, Love, Moses

    Very nicely written, Colleen, but a little piece of advice.. when u feel confused .. can't make a decision.. don't do anything..your purpose right now is to get into a relationship with God and all the rest fall into place.. make HIM your focus every day and all things in your life and their meaning start to become clearer...just don't give up as hard as it is to handle.. your hubby and kids need u .. blessings... luv.. Linda-Marie...

    Colleen, I am sure this was probably a hard write for you. A lot of us have been there to I think. God is looking out for you, he may not be answering right away because as we all know he works in his time. He will answer you though, most likely when you least expect it.. Powerful write... Blessings....Taz

    This is a write that many will be able to relate with on some level if they are truly honest with themselves! I know I can. Writing has been my venting mechanism for all of my deep dark innermost feelings. God has a purpose for each of us...we may not always agree with the hardships we are to face in this world but, I think of each of them as a test from God to see if I really believe. You Colleen have a purpose to be YOU! God loves you as do many people are a sister in Christ. ~Mary

    A fragrant one Coleen.The Lord is the good shepherd! He leaves the flock,to locate one in the dock.He's out there looking for you. God Bless, PRINCE

    Colleen, the Lord presented you to your parents as a gift to love and to nurture and teach you right from wrong. He gave you your children and grandchildren under the same purpose. One thing that you are thinking of doing is wrong. If you should commit suicide do you truly believe the Lord should forgive you? He has given you life and a purpose for being here. No matter how bad you think life might be there are others who are going through worse and not thinking suicide. Love and prayers , Carol

    Dear Colleen, Thanks for the comments. God who leads one step at a time has led you to this family, the Soup. Continue to write so that others can benefit from your writings and continue to read the writings of those here. And be assured, just as you love your children, God loves you so much more and continues to have purpose for you! Your friend, Lightwalker

    Once again, I can totally relate to this poem. Sometimes my eyes are a little hazy and i feel like i'm absolutely nothing to anyone. Then i realized i had to stop trying to be everything to everyone. just be yourself. open your heart. love will find it's way in. there is no compassion without some suffering. be yourself.

    You do have a purpose. Our children and grandchildren need us more than we can possibly know. Satan would want us confused and defeated. You can read your "Bible" and pray and be there. Make something special for them to eat once a month. Make a list of your abilities and think where can I use these. Whatever you do keep writing. Thanks for the comments on my work. Sara

    i do not want any messages or anything coming towards me with anger but i have a question for you...why do you believe?, i find it very difficult with myself but why...why do u believe in God or Jesus(whatever you want to call him)?
