  4. I appreciate your words that you wrote. I am feeling so much that same way, feeling frustrated. I share your pain.
    I am in school with Liberty University Online, and I feel hopeless with understanding computer language and it seems that my life seems to be falling apart, too. I wake up every day seems to feel like the weight of the world is on my chest. I seem so exhausted and every day I feel like a steep, uphill battle. I’m normally a very outgoing person, even though I remember sitting down every night, wondering when it would ever get better. I knew it would, eventually. But when you’re so deep in that pit of sadness, it’s hard to see how even God will bring you out.
    By God’s grace, in times like these, I’m encouraged to explore the hope of God’s Word.
    1. The pain won’t last forever
    He will wipe away all tears from their eyes. There will be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain. The old things have disappeared. – Revelation 21:4
    2. Praise God, even when it’s hard
    Why am I so sad? Why am I so troubled? I will put my hope in God, and once again I will praise him, my savior and my God. – Psalm 43:5
    3. Give your burdens to God
    Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28
    4. When you are weak, God is strong
    His answer was: “My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak.” I am most happy, then, to be proud of my weaknesses, in order to feel the protection of Christ’s power over me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
    5. Keep your eyes on Jesus
    I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me; he freed me from all my fears. The oppressed look to him and are glad; they will never be disappointed. – Psalm 34:4-5
    6. God will strengthen you
    But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak. – Isaiah 40:31
    7. Don’t stop praying
    Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times. – Romans 12:12
    Ya-know reviewing these helpful pieces of scripture makes me feel some better but it is still an up hill climb.

  5. Hi guys, I was in a long term relationship with the father of my son but we recently broke up. Through the years I have been doing small contract jobs which no longer come my way. I had to move in with my mom coz am broke I can’t even feed my son at times I feel like am not needed her like am a burden to her and her comments at times get to me and I wish I had a way out . Been feeling hopeless I find myself wishing I was dead and didn’t have a son. At times I lash out at him for no reason. I am slowly slipping into depression. I can’t seem to find a job. Having no strong education background does not help the situation. I really need a lot of guidance and prayers.

  6. Ally- I’m sorry you’ve had to go through this, a mother is our first source of love from the very beginning of our life. Your gonna have to start fresh, don’t let your mom be the voice in your head anymore let God, let words of hope guide you and they should never rest in people alone because people fail. Read inspiring stories, uplifting words, quotes of the hopeful. Most importantly believe, believe in you!

  7. I have felt abandoned my entire life bc my mother didn’t want me and when she did have me sparingly throughout my childhood she never treated me like she loved me and when she got tired of being a mother she would drop me off at my grandmother’s house and leave for months and sometimes up to a year at a time without any explanation or concern for my feelings or well-being which always left me heartbroken and yurning to have her with me bc I did love her and all I ever wanted was for her to love me back but I never truly felt that she did as well as always wondering when she would come back or if she would come back. She eventually gave custody of me to my grandmother when I was 14 and i lived with my grandmother untill I was 18 and only seen my mom sparingly throughout those years only bc she had no where else to go but at the time I didn’t know that’s why she was there bc she would tell me that she came to see me bc she missed me and wanted to see me so she would come and stay with us for a week or two and then just up and leave again leaving me heartbroken and unwanted every time without any care at all about how she continued to make me feel and the ongoing pain caused me to subconsciously distance myself from anyone and everyone else in my life incuding my grandmother bc I am a very sensitive person and I would internalize all of the horrible things that I had to go through which caused me to devlope an inability to trust anyone and the inability to except any kind of love from anyone I went on to have three little boys at an early age and I believe now that I did that bc I subconsciously wanted so deeply and always had the continually growing yurning for that feeling of real guniune love that I have always witnessed other people recieveing but never got or felt before in my entire life. Once my children where born I focused all of my love and attention on them and continue to do and I always will. But once they where born and I actually allowed myself to be loved I believe all of the stuff from my childhood began to get repressed . well my son devolved a very rare blood disorder and we have been battling this for 6 years now but my mom decided to tell me that I didn’t care if my son lived or died and once I heard her say that it was like she triggered all of my repressed memories and they all came flooding back which through me into a spiraling depression. I have taken meds for it and overcame the worst part of it and discontinued the meds but I am still slowly coming out on the other side of it. All of this has left me hopeless and without faith bc I just can’t undertand or trust anyone who is supposed to love me Can allow all of this trauma to happen to me not even God himself.

  9. Ryan,We are all sinners,saved by God grace.As long as you’ve ask God to forgive of your sins,it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.God looks at all our sins the same,big or small but if you confess your sin to Him he will forgive you and it’s no place for anyone to judge you.prayers to you.

  10. My girlfriend is trying to loose hope in this Great God just because her resit exam had the same result as the first one and she’s saying God has not being fair to her because she’s being doing His will. I need advice so I tell her. I’ve cautioned and strengthened her but I think it’s not enough. I made her listen to ( HE’S ABLE – DEITRICK HADDON) and I gave her Psalm 42:5 to meditate on. I need more assistance people of God

  11. I am trying to change so bad I hate the darkness..My past haunts me daily I hate sin it disgust me. I try to turn my life over to god but others see me as sinner still

    1. Ryan,
      What matters is how the Father sees us. He said in his word, that our sins are cast as far as; the East is from the West never to be remembered. I am so thankful for that. Yes, sometimes it is easy to get caught up in how people see us, but when that happens I remind myself that I must keep my eyes on Jesus and let him see me as the new creature he said I was. Be encouraged that God has something for you as you make steps forward to receive the promises he has for you.

  12. The battle is not over Mandy
    We do suffer, at times from our choices, at times unjustly.
    One language of the heart your Father, thru Jesus, understands is suffering.
    “I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!”
    Psalms 27:13
    Psalms is a wonderful book of the Bible through which God speaks to us, during troubled times.
    Read, call, pray

  19. God can fix every soul including yours. Forgiveness of one’s self is possible through calling on Jesus. Tears will pour like the river. When any person stays with another Who’s inflicting some type of abuse, be emotional, physical, or sexual is because they fear being alone. The abusive person is usually never apologetic for their wrong doing. The answer is go to God and cry out Abba forgive them for they know not what they do and then ask God to give you strength and away of escape. Soul ties are the most painful to walk away from. You have to be ready to fight spiritually cause the other person likes intimidating the weakened. It’s a learned behavior. That’s why it continues to cycle. Fight with prayer, never with negative words.You can only win with God. Take everything to God. Now let me tell you why I’m on here viewing your confessions. I’m 45 and a living walking breathing survivor rejection of all types. The Word of God keeps me from day to day. These scriptures of hope remind me of why I’m here. God has brought me safe thus far, no matter the tantrums I’ve thrown. God has a plan for my life. Do I dwell on past evils done to me, cause even psychiatrist stand amazed when I tell them it is God’s grace that has kept my mind from self destructing. So I thank each one of you for sharing and reading my post. Today is a new day and this day I choose to hope in the promises God has for me and my future.
