Please pray for me. Been going through some depression and anxiety. I want to find rest for the soul that Jesus gives but don't know how. I keep feeling burdened by worries that are hard for me to just leave alone with God for him to take care of.

I'm so sorry that you have burdens weighing you down right now.
Have you been able to identify the things that are bothering you?
Have you taken them to God in prayer?
Do you trust Jesus? Can He take care of the things that worry you? Can you trust Him to do what you cannot do?
If so, then He is ready and waiting to do what you need done. I have seen Him take the things that feel overwhelming to me and do miracles with them over and over and over again. He LOVES to show off that way, to show us how much He loves us.
Remember what Jesus said, that if we get yoked up with him (in the way that oxen work together in pairs, wearing a shared yoke to pull with), that HE takes the brunt of the pressure and get the easier part. That's a promise from God. We can trust Him.
Psalm 138 says that God will accomplish what concerns us; and Psalm 131 says that we can rest in Jesus's lap while HE takes care of our needs.
Take courage! You have a God who NEVER forgets you. His loving eyes have your attention.
Talk to Him about everything you need and THANK Him, thank Him, thank Him!
(see Philippians 4:6)

I'm happy to pray for you.

"I pray you find rest and peace with God's Divine 'inspiration' to lift your spirit up and away
from any troublesome burden. Let us pray to know the root cause, and hopefully to be gone
with whatever it may be. Let us pray that your worries are temporary and to remain strong
in knowing God's 'presence' is close by.
Lord, let Your 'light' be upon this life in all their coming and going, and that all is well."
'Amen'

I have been going through the same thing. I will certainly pray for God to lift the cloud of depression that is hovering over you and for the anxiety to dissipate.

"Lord, lift this life up and let them come to know of a peace and well being. Remove the
burdens and lift their spirit up out of any darkness, and Lord may Your 'light' give them
peace and well being. I pray of this 'to be."
'Amen'

The power of prayer and a good long full on cry, is a salve for depression and that feeling of overwhelm. (hugs you)

Unfortunately, I have used my allotment of tears so there are no more tears with which to cry.

Hey Cherie. I hope you have someone to talk to re your anxiety and depression, and that you are getting help for it.
My prayer for you:
Lord, please help lessen Cherie's anxiety and depression, help her to cope with the daily trials of life (which is never easy in our fast-paced, selfish culture today), and give her some peace of mind. Amen.

Trusting Jesus is something I need practice with. I was having some panicky moments earlier today. I prayed and told God I was feeling scared. Eventually I felt better but it takes a little time. At least panic attacks usually do not last long.

I'm glad you're finding a little relief anyway. The key really is to give your worries to Jesus. Imagine yourself handing everything that scares you or worries you into Jesus's hands and you walking away, never to look back or touch them again because you KNOW that Jesus can be trusted and HE WILL take care of it for you.

Thank you. That is a good way of looking at it.

Cherie,
I am so sorry to hear of your struggles. I am praying for you, for your strength and perseverance.
I find this popular version of the Serenity Prayer as a constant reminder that you can only control the things within your control and to give all your other struggles to HIM...

Serenity Prayer:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Also if you seek a bit of inspiration for strength and perseverance recall
Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

God Bless
