HELP, I’M HOPELESS.

Updated: Sep 27, 2022



HAVE YOU EVER HAD THOSE MOMENTS IN LIFE WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING SO BAD, AND YET EVERY OBSTACLE TRIES TO COME IN YOUR WAY TO DETER YOU FROM TRUE PURPOSE? YOU’VE EVER BEEN IN A SITUATION WHERE THE GOAL YOU’VE SET TO ACCOMPLISH BEFORE YOU IS ALWAYS STOPPED?

THAT’S WHERE I’VE BEEN LATELY. MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY. WITH THE CLIMATE THAT’S BEEN HAPPENING IN THE WORLD , IT’S BEEN DISCOURAGING. I’M SURE, IT’S BEEN DISCOURAGING WITH THE PEOPLE YOU RELATE TO EVERYDAY AND JUST DISCOURAGING IN DAILY LIFE.

I’VE BEEN WRESTLING WITH MY PLACE IN A TIME SUCH AS THIS. MY FAITH ALWAYS POINTS ME TO THE TIMES WHEN I DON’T UNDERSTAND. IT’S IN TIMES LIKE THIS THAT PRAYER IS SUCH A KEY! HAVING CLEAR DIRECTION TO WHERE YOU WANT TO GO AND HAVE DIRECTION TO WHAT THE NEXT STEPS ARE, IS WHAT’S IMPORTANT. I JUST WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU, IF YOU EVER FEEL ALONE AND FEEL OUT OF PLACE OR THAT YOU’RE NOT DOING YOUR BEST OR EVEN ENOUGH, TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE ENOUGH WHEN YOU STOP TRYING TO DEPEND ON YOUR OWN STRENGTH. LET THE IDEAS DIE OF BEING ABLE TO PERFORM IN YOUR OWN TALENTS, AND GIVE THE STRESS OF BEING OVERWHELMED TO GOD. GOD DOESN’T NEED ANY HELP FROM ME IN MY LIFE. THE BATTLE IS NOT MINE AT ALL , AND WHEN I TRY TO DO ANYTHING IN MY OWN STRENGTH, PRIDE HAS ITS NAME WRITTEN ALL OVER IT! I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT WHO’S TRYING TO STRESS OVER THINGS THAT YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T CONTROL!? (PLAYS MAKE ROOM BY JONATHAN MCREYNOLDS) FRIENDS, THE CARES OF THIS WORLD DOES REQUIRE YOUR ACTION AND YOUR FAITH , BUT LET’S NOT FORGET TO ALSO GIVE IT OVER TO GOD IN PRAYER TOO. I TAKE DIRECTION FROM GOD AND HE DIRECTS ME ON MY NEXT ACTION STEPS! PRAYER STILL CHANGES THINGS AND HAVING FAITH IN GOD STILL CHANGES THINGS!
PRAY THIS PRAYER : GOD IT’S ME. I’M FEELING SO _________ RIGHT NOW. I NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER. I NEED YOU TO GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO OVERCOME _________________. HELP ME TO SEE YOUR DESIRE AND WILL FOR ME THROUGH ALL OF THIS. HELP ME TO NOT FEEL THE GUILT OF MY INADEQUACIES AND HELP ME TO NOT LET MY PRIDE GET IN THE WAY OF MY TRUE FEELINGS. GOD, I’M GIVING ALL OF MY FEELINGS TO YOU, KNOWING THAT YOU’RE NOT GOING TO JUDGE ME AT THIS MOMENT. I THANK YOU FOR ALREADY GIVING ME THE POWER TO CONTINUE. AMEN.

LET ME KNOW, HOW HAS PRAYER CHANGED THINGS IN YOUR LIFE?
