Prayer when the bottom dropped out

THERE JUST seemed to be complete upheaval in everything I was doing. I was at a crossroads in my work. I was completely broke and deeply in debt.

And a relationship that I dearly loved was dying. This guy and I had been dating for almost two years, and I had really felt that this was it! This was the one. It had been the best friendship and relationship I'd ever had. But over a period of months, it just began to get worse and worse. And my friend was kind of at a crossroads. He wasn't sure what he wanted to do with his life.

There was a lot of turmoil. I began to really pray for some direction about everything, but especially about the relationship. I thought, "Everything else can fall apart, but this thing I'm holding on to."
