Idk pain. I just want to talk to someone in person about God and not for something church related. Church is too fake. Christians don't want to do that and the whole thing seems even faker. I fail at so much or almost get there and then don't make it. I'm tired.
I agree, there are a lot of fakers at church. I’m tired too! Life sucks, that’s why we need to stay. It’s like we are part of a team and we get our butts beat all of time. Some of the players are junk, some seem like they are playing for the other team. The point is, the game isn’t over. We have to hang in there for eachother. If you quit, that’s more work for the rest of us. I love talking about God. What are your thoughts. I’m interested!
Praying for you umzza! Never give up. I use to be depressed too because of the abuses that I have received. But I know that though the abusers meant it to destroy me, God turned it around and now I am not depressed anymore and am satisfied in Jesus. Yes, not everything is perfect in my life either, but God never promised that this present life will be perfect. Jesus said that we will have many troubles and even persecutions. Still, God has the ability to turn even the imperfections of my life into something beautiful for His glory. umzza be encouraged.
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid.” - Jesus in John 14:27
“Look, an hour is coming and has already come when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and you will leave Me all alone. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!” - Jesus in John 16:32-33
The peace that Jesus had was a peace that kept Him in the midst of betrayal, a mock trial and death. And this same peace He gives to us. This peace Jesus gives us, it is not like the peace that the world gives. His peace is a peace that is present in spite of the tribulation that we face. He gives His peace to us so that even though our lives are troubled yet our hearts are not. Even though there are reasons to fear, we will not allow fear to define us - we will not be afraid. We will let the peace of Jesus rule and reign over our fears, depressions and anything else that needs this ruling and reigning.
I’m sorry you are going through these struggles, Umzza. I hope you will reach out to a caring counselor on the number provided. Are there any support groups in your area? My continued prayers for you that God will provide the help, encouragement and guidance you need at this time. Hang in there!
Psalm 86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
The Bible says Phl 4:11, Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am , therewith to be content.
this was something that hit me like a brick. so I started to just be content even if it was a bad situation, or whatever gets us down. and it really helped me to stop and let go. his word says, For my yoke is easy , and my burden is light. Matt 11:30... and its true, its only easy if we let go and trust God to handle our life. worrying or hating our life is only going to bring on health issues. Everyone has issues they have to endure or conquer. but it is only easy if you let go, I had to practice it a long time before it 'got' it. hang in there, there is always a rainbow at the end of the storm , ride out your storm, your not going to be in it forever. it has to rain before you get that rainbow.
