Please pray for me to learn quickly and memorize, have low/no stress, and work for the Lord.

Im struggling with work.
everyone is much younger and faster. I feel like a failure
Sorry to hear that Matt! How you struggling? Is it a physical job? Don't forget being well-rounded helps in virtually every position. And just remember to work for the Lord and be there to serve. A great attitude is immensely beneficial to everyone.

Starting a new job Is hard to do, no Matter what the job title is. But the key is to believe In yourself, cause Jesus BELIEVES in his children. He wouldnt have blessed you with the job position if he didn’t think you could handle the stress. I know what it feels like; my old job I thought I was going to die of stress every single day. I’m in the medial field so I know stress, especially in these hard times.

Nevertheless, praying for all who needs the strength to get through work, and to have the mind like a sponge… to soak up everything you could possibly remember and do the job as needed.

God bless
you all

I see. I find it's important to take one thing at a time, stay in that moment with as much peace and joy as you can, do it well. If it's not too personal, what do you mean by your mind being tormented by sin? I certainly understand finding ones mind thinking about unbeneficial things, especially when I want to sleep. Im sure there's methods to reduce them.

This is actually a recent topic of discussion in my circles... Unbeneficial thoughts can unconsciously come into our conscious mind. Every time, the very moment you realize this has occurred you yell, "Stop! This is not allowed!" out loud (if you can) or out loud in your head. You are telling your brain it must stop this. This has been found an effective practice.

You can add to this practice (if you want, if possible, if appropriate): 1. clearing your mind of thoughts for 30 secs. 2. Redirecting your thoughts to something beneficial or needed, and/or go do something different. 3. Add clapping, slapping, slash of water. 4. If you feel the thoughts are demonically inspired, cast out the thoughts in the name of Yeshua Messiah/Jesus Christ. 5. You can realize your brain/mind is not you (consciousness/soul/spirit), but it can think it is; and you can enter into its mechanical programming the information that it's not you.

Here's one source for this practice: Stop Negative Thoughts: Getting Started | HealthLink BC

I had to say stop about 4 times just while reading this post. It could be useful although consistency is always been tricky for me. How did you come across this practice? Have you also dealt with difficult behaviour?

I've come across this technic/practice numerous times, from many sources, going back to 90s though I wouldn't doubt it goes back much further. It's currently called Response Interruption/Redirection (RIR). I remember hearing Tony Robbins explain a woman at a party came up to him (while he was holding a wine glass with water) and insisted that he demonstrate how to keep her from thinking a constant thought (or some behavior). He asked her to think about it, and then slashed his water in her face. He's physically interrupting and redirecting well traveled synaptic roads in the her brain. Sometimes immediately, more often with repetition, these physical rivers of thoughts can be channeled another direction. Yes, I've dealt with unbeneficial repetitive thoughts.
