Your story. A cry for the broken.

I got an idea. I can't tell you guys what it is yet. Sorry, but it is about encouraging people to help others with their pain. I need your help, so I can write this thing. I want you guys to respond to this question in the comments. Please leave something, even if it is small.

Here are some questions that I need you guys to answer and feel FREE to do it ananymously - actually, I encourage you too. It's not about who says what. I need it to give me ideas about what people struggle with from day to day. As weird as this sounds, please give me a story of pain from your life.

1: What has happened in your life that has been painful? (unfaithfulness, betrayal, death...ect.)

2: What things do you find yourself giving in too for comfort? God? Cutting? Friends? Media? ect?

3: What sins do you struggle with?

4: Is there anything that you feel like overcomes you?

5: Share a story of a person or thing that has helped you, encouraged you or changed your life? What was it and why did it help so much?

6: Name some ways that you find yourself helping other people in pain.

7: Is there a Bible verse that you find comforting in painful times? Please share.

8: How do you feel people reacting to you? With love, and accepting? Or with discomfort and awkwardness?

9: Be open about yourself. What do feel like people (namely Christians) feel about you?

10: Have you ever felt like you needed help, but no one was there to help you? Please share.

I KNOW that these are personal questions, but bare with me, you guys. If I could figure out how to do this....

1. The death of my Grandfather was probably the most painful thing I have ever experienced.

2. God has always helped me, but I also find myself turning more and more to my family.

3. I struggle with vanity, anger, and some other sins that God and I are fighting.

4. I believe that I let fear overcome me far too often.

5. The books of C. S. Lewis has really helped to open my eyes and guided me through some of the most painful moments.

6. Whenever I see someone in pain, I try to do what I can for them, but I've found that just having an arm around their shoulder helps more than anything.

7. Psalm 45:10-11. "Hearken, O Daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people and thy father's house; so shall the King greatly desire thy beauty; for He is thy Lord; and worship though him.

8. People react to me differently, depending on their worldviews. Some people view me as nothing but a child who doesn't know anything, others look up to me, and others still, love me as a sister.

9. I believe that people think that I am sweet, and mature for being so young. Bossy definitely, but usually kind and fun to talk to.

10. Yes I have. Before I let God tell me that I could trust Him, I felt lonely and closed from the world. I felt like not even my family could fill the gaping hole inside me. I didn't know what could, until I gave my life entirely to Him.
