    My gf broke up with me today and I’m devastated. I’m leaving it in Gods hand now, I just want to be closer to God and for him to fill the void in my heart that I was trying to have this relationship fill

    Knew this girl for a while and she liked me for a while so I asked her out and we dated for two months, we are both Christian’s and I got carried away and started making moves, eventually we lost our virginity together and started having a lot of sex but we still cared for each other, at least I cared deeply to where I would do anything for her! Sadly she just ended it bc we fell away from God and she said she just can’t have that, idk what to do, whether or not I should ask for another chance bc I learned from my mistakes now and am willing to do things the right way and not be alone with her and focus on Christ…

    Pastor John Piper, I wish you could know how much this podcast has helped me. You have pointed me right back to the One Who is, and Who remains, my All in All. God has spoken to me and counselled me through you. What a privilege to be created by Him and to be invited by Him, to work alongside Him(the living God) in what He is seeking to do in the world! What an honour to be a fellow heir with Christ of God and ALL of His blessings!!
    The Lord bless you.

    I don’t know anything about archives or podcasts. And I want to know everything. If there’s an address I can write to I would be willing to ask for any help I could get I would read anything and listen to anything that comes from my Lord and Savior. The only one who really cares about us

    I did and I’m doing all those things. And I am a Bible believing Christian. Nobody reaches out to me because I’m not telling anyone. Except for you guys. I starve myself and I cut my neck and my arm and I never ever thought I would do anything like that. I did get some help for that and I’m past that now. But I miss him. He is an alcoholic. It’s very sad for me. I had to block him out of my life. I love being alive. But on top of it all I’ve got a neighbor guy that stalks me so that’s why I stay in my apartment. My boyfriend made me feel safe but now he is gone. I am closer to God now. I’m sad still.
    I never did drugs and I drink occasionally but I did I idolize the man that I loved.
    I think I made Jesus jealous and I’m so sorry. I’m looking forward to a New Life. I actually felt like demons were entering me. If there’s anyone out there that can pray for me for even one friend to come in my path that is a Christian I would truly be grateful. Thank you for the person who made this message because I will listen to this the rest of the night. And I will listen to many of the other messages. I always am close to God and I put him on the back burner. Fornication is not godly. Thank you for bringing me back to the past. Our joy is our strength. As I’m speaking my sadness is leaving me.

    I really wish that this word would help me. But it doesn’t. It doesn’t give me peace, it’s doesn’t.

  23. Allan Martinez on May 22, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    I’m going through a tough time with heart break . I dated this girl but her family never tried to get to know me . I was given the cold shoulder. My former gf and I would agrue about spending together and so many personal problems surrounding her including trying so hard to figure out why her family always give me cold shoulder when I did everything good loving honest faithful to his gf . I finally broke away but I’m upset at myself because I truly loved her with all my heart . After some time away I realized her bday coming and I said should I message her or leave it in hands of Lord Jesus Christ . I took chance and messaged her but sadly it didn’t go well . I feel terrible now and even more heart broken . Help

  24. Matthew B on May 22, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    …I really have no words…I cannot believe how accurate some of these situations are and how I’ve been trying to cope. It’s only been a few months…it’s all flooded back to me and it’s very hard to push past it. I have this sick, twisted feeling in my gut that makes me want to reach out. But everyone tells me not to…they say "if she would want you back then she’ll reach out herself." That’s the worst part…I’m now sitting and waiting to hear…I feel as if I never will. But this video game me some truth to think about…God is truly good and I thank Him for helping me find this video in a time of need. Sincerely from the bottom of my heart…thank you to all those at "Desiring God."

  26. GPD on May 22, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    March 26th 2022 my heart feels so sad cuz my relationship ended. I feel so lonely.
    And when I go to church the married women look at me like I’m after their man when I just want to hear the word of God. It’s terrible being a single woman a divorce single woman besides. They’re not very loving. I pray for today’s one ladies invited me one time to a Bible study with pretty teacups and different China plates. They became jealous of me because I was pretty. It’s not my fault it’s like a curse. I wish I could have cut my face so that no one would think I was beautiful anymore and people would look away from me and treat me nicely. Does that actually have to happen? Not all women are evil. I went to church because I was falling apart and I left there feeling even worse 🙁 so I look at bible believe in churches on the internet. I’m too embarrassed to say what happened to me and it’s all my fault.

    Please pray for me. I was in a one year relationship with my Gf who’s not a Christian and we were enjoying the best times of our life and we loved each other a lot but a few days ago, during the Super Bowl, she lost feelings and dumped me. I feel so heartbroken right now and I feel lost in the dark. Please pray for me to help me feel better and finding hope.

  33. Kaylie Dziegielewski on May 22, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    I was in a relationship for 2 years (he broke up with me on our anniversary) because he couldn’t handle the long distance but i loved him so much and it hurts because he promised he’d never give up on me ever again after the first time we broke up and always said he couldn’t wait to marry me. We were in a Godly relationship and he even brought me closer to Jesus and helped me through hard times. I’m still in shock that this is even happening because I really believed this was the person God had for me. I feel like I can never go back to him because I can’t trust his promises anymore and God obviously took him out of my life again for a reason. I’m so hurt and I miss him so much, it’s so hard to move on.

  36. Keila Verdugo Martínez on May 22, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Wow, God knew that I had to listen to this…
    This hit me hard right now.
    I’m 29 and experienced my first relationship, breakup and heartbreak for the last months… I’ts been really really hard for me, we were planning to get married, and even if we both are christian and we didn’t sin sexually or anything like that, God make me see that this relationship make me agreed with things I was not comfortable in my faith, that I knew that weren’t correct, that hurt me and I know would have interfere in my relationship and commitment with God and most important, I was putting this man in the place of God in my life… So I had to be brave and break up with him. Even if we did all the "right things" before be in the actual relationship, like pray before saying yes, seeking for advise and everything. I know God permited all this things to happen for a reason and that is that He has to be my (and I pray every day for this, that He become his) everything.
    And it’s really weird thinking this when we both are christian, but at the end I understood we were not in the same page in our faith and convictions, and sadly we were too immature to love the other the way Christ loves the church. I’m not gonna lie, in my heart I know there still a desire to be with him and marrying him, because he is the first person I decide to give my heart, my best friend… but I understood that I have to be ready to choose God before anything or anyone else. And He knows how much this is hurting, He knows… but wants me (and I can be really sure that He wants all of us) to choose what’s better. And the best, no, the Greatest person we can have to be satisfied and complete is Jesus Christ. But for real. Not just an emotional approach to Him that last a few days or weeks, but a completely honest (and broken) heart, humble heart that is willing to surrender e v e r y t h i n g to Him. Your life, your mind, you emotions, your heart, your will… To His.
    If God it’s not the center, the real center of everything you are and do, everything else will become an idol for you, even the good things. Nothing and no one should move us from Him, He wants us to live completly for and in Him. And oh boy, now I see that I have to grow and for his mercy and love I been growing this past months through this pain. I thank God for this desert I’m going through… It’s for His glory. It hurts a lot, everyday hurts that I cry before Him because my soul and spirit seems to even reject any consolation or comfort, but I know and trust that this is not the end, even if I feel like it is, (Psalms 73), it’s not the end. Only now, that all that faith that I was so sure was strong is putting to a test, I can see that I’m really weak and I can only rely on Him and be strong in Him. All those prayers for a completly surrender and for Him to be my everything are been answered now through this, and it hurts a lot, but He is good and He will finish what He already started in me, because only He is faithful. I pray everyday for my ex and I will continue to do it, because even if God said that that this was not the time and I have to wait…Neither I know if he is the man He wants me to marry, I will not cling to him or anything… Only God. I know the only thing I can do now is love him by praying for him, and wait for the Lord, to take care of all the live I have for him and bring consolation and healing to our hearts.

    Wait patiently in the Lord, be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently in the Lord.

    Psalm 27:14

    I need help.. my boyfriend and I were together for over 6 years and he had a ring, I was expecting an engagement and ended up getting a break up.. how can I understand why this is happening.. It’s the most painful thing I’ve ever been through and I can’t get through this

  39. James Zapata on May 22, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Anointed Christian the true Holy Spirit children do not date. When the Holy Spirit woman and a holy spirit man ask Jesus for a husband or wife. Jesus will find you the perfect husband or the perfect wife because you belong to him and your anointed Christian and you’re filled with the Holy Spirit. It will be the perfect marriage and both of you love Jesus. If you’re dating and you sleeping with other people you don’t have the Holy Spirit you’re a fleshly person.

  40. Agnes Aggy on May 22, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    I’m currently indecisive about my relationship. I feel like I’m being lied to.The contradicting part is I always pray about it.
