I've tried and tried to get away from drugs, it seems to surround me where I am from. I've had Bestfriend's that I'd partner up with with plans of getting out of this town and away from temptation. Although I am clean, it completely surrounds me. I spoke up about it and ended up getting kicked out. I'm an eighteen year old female that lives in her car. I cry everyday, I also pray. I suppose god is trying to teach me to not depend on others but to depend on him. I see the lesson, and I've applied it. I'm on my own now with all my old friends back into drugs. I no longer have family to depend on, nor do I have friends. I thought I've seen a dark world, but it was nothing compared to what I see now. Income based apartments here are full with a waiting list that goes past December minimum. I want to get out of this place and just start fresh. Just with God and I. My heart hurts beyond measure and I just want to give up completely. But I'm still trying, I'm still pushing. Please help me.

Ophelia,
I cannot know your pain and your suffering and hurt ... I am soo sorry it seems you have no place to go and no one to turn to. Jesus is the comfort, hope, peace and giver of life and there is no other. I will be praying for you and asking others also.God will hear these and your prayers and help will come, somehow, just hold onto Jesus and He will not let you go but will lead and guide you to where you can be. Not because of you or your trying anything(though you will have some responsibility for your choices). I can tell you this because that is where he found me, and the lost broken filthy rags we are...well that is just who He came for. Start praying to hon to be set free, only He can break those chains.John3:16 For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Don't give up, you are being sanctified. You've believed in Christ & so He has justified you by His sinlessness, He has. And now you along with the en-ti-re Body of Christ are being sanctified, daily! "Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters (Hebrews 2:11)." Make your requests to God, knowing that His power & knowledge are beyond understanding will, supply you with sufficient understanding, opportunity, and unity among your holy people. And we are made holy by Christ not by our own faith, but that our faith is like an electrical socket and God has the ever modern spiritually charging device to plug into us His love, real love. Steadfast hope in you in Christ dear Ophelia, grace & peace. -Bro. Likewhyz

P.S. Where are you currently if we may know? We should be praying also for your friends & kindred_
