Bummed… — 14 Comments

  1. What a lovely, honest post. I went through a period of being afraid to trust as well. Especially as a pastor’s wife it’s hard to know who the real friends are and who the people are that will turn on you, but the older I get the more I’m able to read people. There are no guarantees of course, but I’m thankful for the few close friends I do have because I know I can count on them!

    • I’m glad that you’ve been able to find those close friends that can be counted on. I’m sure they are a blessing to you.

      Thanks for commenting.

  2. I’ll tell you what helped me. After writing all about my problem of being real, etc., I realized my biggest issue was not trusting God. I mean, I said it with my lips, but didn’t really have any trust in my heart. I began really crying out to God, reading more of His word and basically saying I need help. I knew I couldn’t trust Him or anyone unless He enabled me to. What did He do to enable me to trust Him? His love. I studied all about His love, sang about it, prayed about it and slowly revelation of His great love for me began to chase away the false me.
    I’m enduring my greatest test now as my bff lies hours from death, a victim of cancer. She is the one I shared everything with. Will I shut down now or will I continue to trust God and know His Love will heal any hurts from trust and vulnerability? Stay tuned…

  3. Bummed….I love that you looked it up to be sure you thought it meant what you thought it meant. I do that too. Teehee. And you can call any time…for anything. 🙂

  4. Praying that you’re soon able to move from “bummed” to “better”, Ginger. God can use this time to strengthen you and prepare you for a way to use the growth. Thanks for your candid post. God Bless.
