Fear not. No one can take you out of God's will for you. Choose to trust the One who made you and has a plan. "A broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise." Psalm 51:17

Had a friend come visit me today who is really hurting cuz his wife is leaving him.  Said he fears being alone, but in his head he knows God is near and hasn't rejected him.  I hate that kinda fear!

Some people fear the future–the silence of being alone after a lover leaves. Some fear lack, or ISIS, and some fear future rejection. Have you had fears too? So sorry about that. I pray grace come near like a warm blanket to cover you today. 
My friend has tried everything to fix his relationship gone sideways, but the wife has a new lover and other plans. So I've been praying that God will comfort.. and give Him along with their kids extra grace just to get through this hard uber-whacked time. For they are all indeed loved with a perfect love. I told him this is why the Bible teaches that God hates (not just dislikes or is disturbed by) marital infidelity and divorce that crush hearts. Some people just don't recover well. 
Have you been forsaken by a friend? Have you suffered loss? Have you also been feeling alone, or afraid.. of whatever? Have you talked it through thoroughly with God. He loves you fiercely!!! Listen… 

"Such LOVE has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear."(1 John 4:18, Bible)

Let God overwhelm you with His great PEACE today. He is greater than all your trials, testing, problems or feelings. 
When the worries and anxieties of life overcome you ..just remember that you can find satisfying REST in God's warm loving arms. He wants to be close forever and has a good plan for you. No one here can mess up his plan for you. I pray that you via taking hold of his grace by faith.. will sense His nearness and love like never before. Have you blown it and feel some level of guilt or shame? Simply ask God to forgive you in Jesus' Name. He will. 
And after you freely receive from Him, you will sense such great JOY inside. You will fall in love in this new relationship that none can take away. Just go from there and bring God's PEACE to others you meet.. or even to one other person! So SO many people feel so alone today. They've been hurt from relationships that have fallen apart and their dreams have been crushed. 

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." (Matthew 5:10)

There might be times when you fumble or stumble or fall again. Try not to, but if you do just get back up again. Run to Jesus Christ (the one you see in the pages of the Bible–the only living Son of God). 
Never forget that God will not leave you ..even if you have made a mistake. He can make a way for you for me ..even when it looks like no one else can. And God is still committed to you no matter what. He says to you "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you."
The Lord is my ROCK, my FORTRESS, my SAVIOR, my REFUGE. See Psalm 18:1-2
Lord, thank You for my friend and for all that You are doing in his life. thanks for being the God of the impossible. We know that no request is too big or too difficult for you! Today I want to serve you oh Lord. Please help me focus my eyes on you so I may be a witness in all I do. I Love you Lord. You are my STRENGTH, my PROVIDER AND PEACE.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10
"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you." Psalm 56:3
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
