Perhaps you've been threatened, gone through difficulties, or feel alarmed by the morning's headlines or latest calamity. You've come to realize this world is not safe. We've got war, terrorism and weather disasters, unexplained tragedies, plus perhaps personal fears about your job, your family, or your health. What can a person do in times like these? A person can go to God in prayer. Let's start with this simple prayer to give God your fear.
Lord, in Jesus name, I give you my fear. You know my worries, but I give my worries to you. They are now your worries. You can worry about them much better than me. Turn my worries into blessings, turn disasters into miracles. Teach me how to trust you through whatever difficultly comes my way.
Now you need to know what the word of the Lord says:
God loves you and has a purpose for your life. do not let your enemy, the devil, have his way with you. Turn to Jesus. Follow him.
What God's word says about worry:
28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
What Jesus says:
Dear Lord, give me your courage. Walk with me. Help me to have the courage to live and to continue to walk the journey you have set before me. You have a purpose for my very life. Help me to live into that purpose.
Don't forget, God has a plan:
"I know the plans I have for you. I have plans to prosper you and not to harm you. I have plans to give you hope and future.
We're praying for you.
P.S. Stand, in your love and God and God's love for you, and you will defeat the evil one.
Do you go to church anywhere? If not, find a church. Talk to the pastor and tell him how you are feeling. But most of all, keep doing the next thing. I'm not promising that you will not have losses, but keep praying, seeking God, and His direction. Keep your head high in this storm and one day, it will pass. The sun will shine again. And this dark period of your life will be behind you. There is hope Jeremiah 29: 11 - 13 says "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,...plans to give you hope and a future... You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
You are going to make it. I'm praying for you. God is going to see you through this dear one. Please, please do not do anything to hurt yourself. Wait on God. In the meantime, if thoughts of suicide get too heavy, go to the hospital or call 911. Call your doctor as well.
Don't do anything to harm yourself. You are so loved. Please give your situation time, please allow God time to move. He may be waiting for you to give in to Him, to say, God I will trust you, no matter what. Try trusting God and see what will happen.
Also, please go in for a medical checkup and tell your doctor about how you feel emotionally. Your doctor may have medications that can help you get over this 'bump' in the road.
Also, I highly recommend counseling. You may find a pastor in your church or other local church or some other professional who will understand and help you with your struggles.
WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU!
