  1. Thank you for these words! Desperately needed to know someone has walked in my shoes. Feeling so heartbroken and abandoned by someone walking out in my life. Trying to see God in everyday but it’s hard

    • I am with you. I too recently had someone walk out on me. I feel abandoned and rejected. I pray we may know Jesus more intimately and see how faithful and true he is. He will never leave or forsake us. And he is so gentle with our broken hearts. Many blessings dear one.

  2. I recently became a single mom and the loss of my relationship feels like a death. I never imagined breaking up with the man I’ve been with for the majority of my life. I don’t understand why, but I’m trying to trust God. Thank you for reminding me that God’s love is always there and He will never leave me.

    • Thanks for sharing, Shanice. I’m so sorry for what you’re going through right now, and I can’t imagine the grief you are carrying right now. May God bring you comfort and draw you to himself. You are not alone, sister. God loves you.

  3. Dear Dr. Reyes,
    Thank you so much for this devotional today Oct, 14, 2021 in the Daystar (In)couragement. Today is my Niece, Nicole’s birthday. She is grieving heavily last night and today because her mom and my sister died this past year on my birthday Feb. 3, 2021. Nicole is so lost and grieving today on her birthday because she was so close to her mom, Michele. In God’s sovereignty, He chose you whose anme is also Michelle. Please pray for Nicole that God will draw her close to His heart today and always. The loss of my sister, Michele was was also a wife and mother has really impacted our family. Thank you again for this wonderful message you wrote today. Sincerely, Kellie
