Out of the depths I have cried out to you, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications. {Psalm130:1}

Have you ever been so shook up about something in your life that you have cried out to God in desperation? It seems as if the heavens are concrete and your prayers hit the ceiling and bounce off? Yes, I know the feeling. When I met my husband I became so anxious, and consumed with lies that He was not the "ONE " for me. I couldn't relax and enjoy his company because these thoughts were in the way.

I had no idea what to do but I cried out all day long. We went to a service at a small church in Smithtown where Living Waters is today. The man who had preached laid his hands on me and he said this:" That which you think is not of God, is of God." That was all. From that moment, my fear of men fell off, and never returned! I had no idea that God even heard my prayer, much less would move on it! I was in bondage to fear, and God let me loose! Not every fear left me that day, unfortunately there were a lot more to deal with down the road, but God knew my despair and my crying. I would cry into my pillow at night so my mother wouldn't hear, and sometimes I couldn't go to work the next day. Refreshment, release, and peace became my portion from the Lord. It can be yours too. He REALLY does hear. Call upon Him today!
