I’m falling apart. I can feel myself fall apart piece by piece every day. What do I do, I read the bible, not every day but often. Every thing in my life is falling apart and me with it. I’m tired of waiting for God to put me back together again. I’m broken, and I’m calling out for help.

Sweet girl, I have so been in your position before. Like your whole world is falling apart, and you with it. You aren’t even sure who you are anymore, and you certainly don’t know who God is! Well, when I was in your position, for a long time I tried to fix everything myself. “I’m just not doing enough, I’m not working hard enough, I’m just not good enough,” were the words I told myself over and over. It must be me, I must be failing. Stop right there. Look, Satan does not want people to be strong in Christ, so he’s going to do EVERYTHING in his power to turn you away, to confuse you and convince you you aren’t good enough, you aren’t worthy. These are lies. God calls you His own, He draws you to himself every day. So the first thing I would suggest is get somebody to pray with and for you. It isn’t easy, letting people know how broken you really are, but the truth is that every human being is broken. So find a strong Christian woman you trust. Maybe it’s your mom, maybe a woman in your church. I think it’s important that the first person you go to is an adult because the Bible says in Titus 2 ” In the same way, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not addicted to much wine. They are to teach what is good, 4 so they may encourage the young women to love their husbands and to love their children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, kind, and submissive to their husbands, so that God’s message will not be slandered.” while having friends your age to help you along can be a good thing, an older woman with more wisdom and experience is usually the best option to start off. She will help you, pray will you, and pray for you. One other thing that I’ve found helps is instead of saying “God, fix me!” we can ask, “Lord, teach me how to serve you in my brokenness!” Darling, if you just hold tightly to God, your tests will become testimonies to God’s grace and constancy. I am praying for you. With love,
