Some Days...

The problem:
Some days you just feel really under-appreciated, disrespected, worthless and almost hopeless. Today is one of those days. I'm almost completely in a mood of listlessness at the prospect of my immediate future. Not my long term future, just the here and now. When I think about my life at times I just want to cry. So much promise, so much passion, so many seemingly attainable dreams. When will my dreams come to fruition? When will my desires start to line up completely with God's so that I will be content in all things and wherever [stage of life] I may be found. NOW!

The Revelation:
*God is good and His mercy endureth forever! I Chr 16:34
*Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. I John 4:4
*For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil 1:6
*You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Is 26:3
*My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. II Cor 12:9
*The LORD will perfect that which concerns me. Ps 138:8

The Plan of Action:

*The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
*He makes me lie
down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, *he restores
my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's
*Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of
death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your
staff, they comfort me.
* You prepare a table before me in
the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup
* Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my
life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Jm 4:8

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. Jm 4:10

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time... I Pet 5:6

I hope this helps someone today. I already feel cleansed and a lot better. God Bless You all!

Wow, you sound like me about 9 years ago. Back then I used to write these types of prayers in a journal (I recommend it for the following reason). I'm not a very good journal writer, but I do pick up those old journals from time to time. Now, I know your despair is real, and so was mine. But can you believe that when I read those old journals I just shake my head and laugh at the state of mind I was in? I would have never imagined this. The most important thing that I've learned is that GOD IS FAITHFUL (I'm yelling this), F-A-I-T-H-F-U-L! HALLELUJAH! Girl, I'm at work, you know I can't be shoutin' up in here. Hang in there.

A few month's late, but this goes to show that God's word is everlasting!

Sometimes you just have to be reminded of the promises!
