The Whisper Within

" Believing that God powers strange coincidences and the journey that lies ahead."

Desperate for Joy!

Today I received a text from my best friend.

I saw this on my walk, and it reminded me of you.

Why me?

Because you are exuberant and full of life.

My friend continue to text me.

I’m still sad about my brother’s passing. I miss friends. I’m trying everything to get back my joy, burning candles, taking walks, blasting music, etc., but I’m just sad.

I responded Tell God you are sad.

So I’m telling you because I’ve been there. Something I learned is to talk to God like a best friend. I’m sad I’m lonely. I need your help. I’m exhausted.

If you don’t know God and don’t have a relationship with him, my suggestion is to start reading the Psalms.

I started reading the Psalms, when I went through a divorce and really relied on them, God’s word, when my ex became a paraplegic.

During this time, I was desperate and learned that I had a personal friend who heard my desperate cries, and wanted to restore my silly joy.

He did then! And He restores my joy now! He will for you too! Just ask!

“Restore unto me the joy…” Psalm 51:12

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have been single for the last twenty years raising my two beautiful children, Jake ( 26)and Tarah (25). I am a originally from Chicago but by listening to “The Whisper Within” I have recently moved to Southern California. I love to run, hike, bike, swim, and practice core yoga but have been sick for the last few years fighting Lyme disease. GOD will heal me but in the meantime, I choose to be happy and not settle for ordinary. I believe in the Fairytale, crave the butterflies, and surrender that God has the plan.
