I feel like I can’t take another step. I feel like I’m in over my head. I feel like I have nowhere to turn. I feel like I went the wrong way. I feel like all my choices are wrong. I feel like I have nothing and no one to turn to. I feel like I need something I do not possess.
How can I be strong when I feel so weak?soundyaaParticipantReplies: 1090Topics: 6

I hear you. I will pray for you, but I will just share that focusing on feelings can really mess a person up. Feelings come and go. Feelings can be so strong and so depressing at times. It helps me to focus on what is true. God tells us in Phil 4:8…Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. I’ve had to train my brain to not dwell on feelings. It doesn’t mean I ignore what I’m feeling, it just means I don’t let it rule my thinking. Does that make sense? God tells us that when we are weak then we are strong. Go figure. It’s not the way the world thinks. It’s far above it. When we come to him as we are, we can admit our weakness and when we surrender our lives to him then he lives in us and when we are in Him we are strong. Phil 4:13 says, I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Father, encourage this brother by Your Words. Let him cast all his cares on you as you say to because you care for him. Let his mind be renewed by Your Word. I lift him up to you and thank you for speaking to him. Let that word not be snatched away by the enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy. May roots grow down strong. May he be built up in Christ, so he can then be able to relate to others who are where he’s been and share the good news of how you intervened and made a way for him when it seemed there was no way. You are good. Your plans for us are good. May we always rest in you rather than worry. The world tells us we have to make things happen, but I know that You make things happen when we walk with you and follow you. I ask that you fill this brother with your Holy Spirit. Give him Your peace. May he enjoy your presence and true fellowship with you, Jesus. This is the day you have made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. You work all things together for good for those who love you and are called according to your purpose. Amen!! I’ll take that!! I’ll continue to share that!! Thank you for this prayer request…may it turn into rich blessings for this brother. I ask all this in Jesus’ Name. Amen and Amen!!ny2sf3000ParticipantReplies: 25Topics: 6

Thank you both. It means the world to me to know there are others on my side. I guess that’s a feeling too though 🙂sheila.tolsonParticipantReplies: 1110Topics: 18

I pray that the Lord will level all the mountains that you are facing . I pray that the peace of God will sweep over you and that you will sense it even now. Just take a deep breathe now and breathe in new life that God wants to offer you. Now breathe out all the stress and bad feelings 🙁 in Jesus name!
God loves you brother so no matter what the circumstances you are facing , let them not dictate your future but let God be the one that dictates what your future holds.ojajanelParticipantReplies: 50Topics: 3

I’m still praying for you. Please know I did not mean to discount your feelings. It’s important to be able to share how you’re feeling. People who care will want to listen. I just wanted to let you know what I’ve learned and what my experience has been. I’m glad to hear you were comforted by knowing that there are people who care about you and what you’re going through. Father, continue to comfort this brother with the truth of Your great love for him. Let him know he is never alone. We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses…let us press on and run the race set before us. Knowing that you are with us, for us and supporting us makes it possible. Thank you Jesus. Thank you for DAB and this Prayer Wall. I thank you for what you’re doing in this brothers life. Your plans for him are good. I pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.sheila.tolsonParticipantReplies: 1110Topics: 18

I have been sitting here praying and twiddling my thumbs and brother I feel just the same as you. Its like you dont want to share because its a burden how can we make so many mistakes and still be standing. Am I right?
Well ask yourself this 🙂
How does good see me?
If he would send his son to die knowing all the wrong moves I would make ?
If he would want to know me every day?
If he were interested in my thoughts and feelings?
If he would SAY PICK UP MY YOKE ITS LIGHT it means we get to put ours down first. I logged in to share my feelings and reading your post made me evaluate my temporary state of mind. Thank you and bless you.soundyaaParticipantReplies: 1090Topics: 6

I pray that you see this situation as a reframe:,
God will refine you so that you can see that all you need his him, in him is strength, the path you take he knows, he knows your thoughts before you say a word (Psalm 139:4), he knew you would get to this place.
Lets reframe your message from the tope
I cant take another step in my own strength, Gods says come to me I will give you the strength and I will carry you when needed.
I feel like I am over my head – Gods says its not over my head, I am completely above it, to the side of it, beneath it and surrounding it. For his ways are higher than your ways and thoughts higher than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9)
My choices are wrong – We fail and choose the wrong things, I remember being in a place saying to God why are you still bothering with me where, I honestly didn’t know why he was in the place I was I he cared, but his love is amazing.
I need something that I do not possess – all you need is God, do what you can and he will do the rest.
How can I be strong – God is your strength.
Maybe he’s saying now come in real close, let me guide your path, let me show you the way I lead.ojajanelParticipantReplies: 50Topics: 3
