No I have been cursed I have babies .. and a husband... I knew God Hated me...
God doesn't hate you! He hates the devil though. And, the depression you are feeling? Is NOT "yours!" It's the devils'! For he knows he has been sentenced to death! If you're a Christian, pray the Lord of the Harvest send some "fellow laborers" to help you!
Take heart, and peace within yourself, that as one of God's children, He doesn't wish any harm befall you!
The Lord can do...best way I can explain it, is like the Lord is an "electrician", of sorts! Performing a "spiritual surgery", as He "rewires" connections, previously considered by yourself, and others' as (a) "default hard wiring." With God? NO ONE has to remain in a "hard-wired" state!
So, don't allow satan's "sentence" to "intertwine" in your emotions and feelings!
YOU, are a child of God! RELY on God! He'll make you stronger!

Who knows! Maybe you'll realize sometime, you really DON'T need "meds!"

Thank you. I hear stuff that says I’m worthless... all sort of stuff... I’m just convinced God.. just wants to get rid of me I don’t serve a purpose anymore...

I pray he helps me the depression I’m going through... the anxiety it taking over my life... I literally couldn’t eat or sleep... I couldn’t even work... I’m at a low low point..

Hearing all that stuff, means you are doing something right! Thank God, for these persecutions!

Philippians 4
4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Why does it mean I’m doing something right? I’m sort of confused?

Does God tell people when they are going to die? Idk if it’s my own thoughts the anxiety or depression. But I could of sworn I heard or thought popped up. About getting affairs in order...
I do not think that God told you were going to die, and get your affairs in order, but you are worried about it so it came up.

It is like someone that thinks they blasphemed against the Spirit, but that is only because they are worried about it not wanting to do it.

For if you blaspheme against the Spirit you do not think did you do it, for you will know you did it for you will say it, or think it, without doubt, such as the Pharisees when they said Jesus cast out devils by Beelzebub, for they said it without doubting what they said.

Loss of interest, question, wonder.

Some people get so worried not to think something that it pops up, and it if causes stress can make it worse, and then if they try to understand it, it makes it worse for they cannot understand it, and adds more stress.

And if a person is stressed they can start thinking negative, and things they would not want to ever think about might pop up, but it is not because they want it, or that it is actually coming from God, or the devil, but they are worried about it.

It pops up because they do not want it, and does not even mean it is against them, but only about the subject that they do not want to think about.

It is like a person that does not want to think elephant, and wants nothing to do with that word ever coming up, or a mental picture of it, for they think it is bad, they will beat their head up trying to avoid it, but it will come up, and they are thinking am I thinking it, and it will come up, and then it will cause stress as they try to avoid it which makes thoughts more intense, and the mind not relaxed, which adds to the problem making it worse, for the word will seem more offensive, and troublesome, because of the stress of their mind.

Try not ever saying elephant ever again in your mind, or a picture of it, and you cannot do it, for it will pop up because you are trying to avoid it that much.

That is why God said overcome evil with good. Do good, and do not worry about the evil for you do not want it, and if it pops up you do not want it, and of course a subject can come up but that does not mean it is meant for you.

I would not want to rob a bank, but if a thought about robbing a bank came up I would not think I want to rob a bank, but it is a subject that happens in society, but if I was that worried about the subject coming up to where it caused me stress I might think I want to rob a bank for the mind set is not relaxed, and worrisome.

I do not think God said you are going to die, and get your affairs in order, but that you are worried about it, and is something that you would not want to come up.

Also Jesus said blessed is he that has not seen Him but still believes, so would God actually talk to us, or would that violate the faith we are supposed to have, for faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, and would that also include not hearing a voice from God that would prove He does exist the same as seeing Jesus which He said blessed is he that has not seen Him but still believes.

The disciples and Paul did not need faith, for they were witnesses to the resurrection of Christ, which Jesus met Saul on the road to Damascus, so God could talk to them and not violate faith, and in the Old Testament talked to certain people.

I do not know and many people will say God talks to us, but do they only think that, and it could be you do not want the subject of you dying coming up, so you thought it that you were going to die, but it was only because you were worried about it, or maybe the subject came up because it is a subject that can come up.

It is like this one man that saw a cloud that he thought was in the shape of a goat, and then thought God was calling him a goat, as opposed to sheep following Jesus, which if you are going to worry that much about something it will probably pop up.

Thank you for replying. It’s like ever since my niece passed... having kids... and other people passing which my aunt just passed Saturday.. all I think about... I keenhearing stuff and I get so scared I almost pass out. I had strange dreams.

It also stated when the doctor said they thought I had ALS... I was scared I obsessed prayed read all night online about ALS I was convinced I had ALS EVEN TOLd myself I have 1.5 years because I work in an ALS clinic ... and I started having doom over me ... and crying... it’s like everywhere I went I saw the Word ALS I said that’s God telling me I have this.

The blasphemy of the HOly Spirit I freaked out one day because my mind said something bad and .. I cried 24 hours begging God not to send me to hell and I was sorry I didn’t know why it popped up...

I know I sound like a mental case, but I really struggle with this stuff... I haven’t even gotten any sleep. Some Christian counselors said it may be mental instead of spiritual I’m not sure.... I been praying I feel too down and even more depressed now.

Thank you for replying and taking the time too

Thoughts come and go, death is not a nightmare. In time you'll get used to the idea of it.

I might have been in a worse state of mind, and spiritual attack than you are now, yrs ago. People told me things that may have slightly helped for the moment, but I couldn't shake the "feeling" and thought I was forever lost, and that God was done with me. There were those I conversed with that had incredible patience, love and Grace in dealing with me that eventually the Lord allowed me to see Truth, and dismiss the lies of the enemy.

And that's what I believe your situation boils down to. Truth vs. lies. The Truth of who Jesus is, what he has done for you, and who YOU ARE NOW. Which is a Child of the One True King! BELIEVE IT. The enemy hates you, and is happy to see you in distress.

Also, FEELINGS are NOT Truth! We can feel sad, depressed, angry, happy, and so on... NONE of those feelings change the Truth of who Jesus is, what He has done for you, and who YOU are.

The devil will steal, kill and destroy, so any condemnation you feel is from him. Your Heavenly Father loves and corrects His Children, HE DOES NOT TORMENT HIS CHILDREN!

Once this Truth sinks in, the devil will have NO POWER over you and he will flee as you believe and invoke the Name of the living Savior, Jesus Christ.

God speaks to us through His Word.

He says, " . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).

Someone so strong in there faith and giving me so much encouragement went through this? I guess I’m shocked. I understand the feelings God is done with me ugh I think it every moment... and I do feel lost..

Thank you for being patient even when I reply keep giving me encouragement. I’m not trying to annoy none of you, I just feel I can’t shake what I’m feeling and I don’t have anyone who understands or listens truly. I feel at times the enemy is laughing at me...

How long does it take or is it up to me for the Truth to sink in? It’s like I feel as if it has.. but maybe it truly hasn’t?

Matthew 13
The Parable of the Sower Explained
18 “Hear then the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path. 20 As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away.[b] 22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 23 As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”

As far as how long does it take? It takes as long as it takes! Just have to be "Ever Mindful!" God will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, no, NEVER EVER leave you! N-E-V-E-R!! Nor EVER, EVER, E-V-E-R forsake you!
God is NOT WILLING, that ANY should die! But, that ALL come to repentance!! :)

God, through Christ Jesus? Calls EVERYONE! As it states in John 3:16? "WHOSOEVER WILL!" May come! So if you have believed and yet believe Jesus Christ? And have confessed him as your High Priest and Kinsmen Redeemer? And you BELIEVE that He is? You have answered "the call!" :)
