    Dear Kathern, I’m sorry you have been through so much! It sounds like you survived a horrific accident. Also, you have suffered loss and are grieving for your parents, and are facing challenges with your niece and nephew. You are suffering both emotionally and physically. When you are faced with layers of adversity, it can be difficult to see any positive aspects to your situation.

    First, rejoice and thank the Lord every day you survived and are alive! He kept you here because your work on earth is not done yet. Look what good works you have already done. You took in your niece and nephew, and kept them in the family, instead of what inevitably would have been foster care. You have treated them with love. Even if they go astray, remember the story of the prodigal son who was loved unconditionally and came back. Your loving care has not been futile, for you cannot fortell the impact your love will have on their futures.

    It is vital that you keep your eyes upon any rays of light in this time of tribulation. You haven’t been singled out to suffer. Life here on earth is difficult, and Jesus said in John 16:33 “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In life you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

    When you are tempted to dwell on the negative circumstances you have coped with, please remember one of my favorite Scriptures, Philippians 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.”

    Your survival and raising your niece and nephew in love are in this verse! God bless you. You are in my prayers.

    Warmest regards,

    1. Stephen

      I have prayed Kathern, I know God has heard. All the disciples suffered. God said you can not compare the suffering of this world with the Glory that will be revealed in those that love God. Jesus bore the cross looking forward to what would be. Try following what Jesus did. God never said it would be easy. But God did say I will never leave you or forsake you. God bless you. Stephen

    I felt the same way not many days ago,and I tell you I couldn’t even figure out what else to do,I had went through the heart check so to speak to make sure I didn’t have any unforgiveness towards any body and so on. THEN I just said a little prayer and ask the Lord to please help. He lead me to a sermon that Kenneth Hagin preached that set me free of a woman that came complaining that she didn’t feel His presence anymore and had receive a miraculous healing 2 years ago.Bro. Hagin had remembered her and thought my goodness you make it sound as if you had sank into a sin of some sort.After listening to her for a bit he pointed out she was going on feelings and reminded her that she his and his Love doesn’t change that you are saved by faith you are his child. That set me free, I was going by a feeling well feelings come and go that doesn’t change anything with God he loves us and is passionately in love with us. Praise the Lord.Jesus loves me this I know for the Bile tells me so……

    Dear Lisa, it is so late and I am bleary eyed, and there is no edit button, but I meant to write your name, Lisa! (Who knows, maybe there is a Christina out there who needed to relate to that!) LOL

    Kindest regards,


  5. Janet

    Dear Lisa,

    Thank you so much for your message. I always pray before I respond, and it is my desire to serve God by uplifting others with encouragement, so I wait until I feel pressed with a message. So, as I am falling asleep very late, I am reminded to answer.

    Yes, good will come out of your waiting! When we are being delayed, it is often a period of preparation for what God has in store. When our accomplishments come easily, it is easy to take them for granted. When they are hard won, we hold them dear with great esteem. Not IF, but WHEN you earn your teaching credential, you will have experienced what it takes to overcome obstacles, with perseverance, patience, and focus. Is this not the greatest lesson a teacher can give to a student who struggles? Our compassion and patience is deepened when we ourselves have experienced the same struggle. You are being prepared to be a teacher that has a deep reservoir for her students of patience, compassion, and encouragement, because you know what it feels like to not have everything come easily.

    As a single mom, I understand the exhaustion that comes with everything falling on your shoulders. Some days you will need much more strength than other days, but God provides this according to our daily needs.

    Psalm 183:3 In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.

    Please remember this verse when it is time for your exam.

    Remember also, that regarding the troubles we face, Jesus said in John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

    God bless you and your child, Christina! I congratulate you in advance on your future success.

    Truly this life can be exhausting. I look forward to the day my Mighty King returns and removes all the troubles sin has brought to this world! For now, I will cling to His promises and find refreshment in God’s Holy written Word. Also, I keep my hopes alive by spending time in prayer.

    1. Post

      Lisa – Yep, that is what we have to do on a daily basis. And not to worry about tomorrow because today is enough, and there is victory and peace in faith in God. And faith comes from hearing from Him, which comes from knowing His word and spending time with Him.

      It sounds like you are doing that. Expect Him to speak to you. Have an expectancy about God Himself talking and working with you. Prayer is effective and it is a two-way communication. Faith, the Bible says, comes by hearing Him speak to you. This is the foundation we can walk upon and live upon in bold peace. We love you. Rex

    Dear Christina,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I believe God directs us to the messages we need to hear in mysterious ways, and you needed to hear my story as a mother who walks in your shoes to encourage you. Once, during my cancer treatment, my son started singing the Imperial March from Star Wars in the bathroom. It was very random and out of the blue. I was searching through channels to find something to watch, and about 30 seconds after he had sung it, I heard a football team band playing what my son had just sung. It made me freeze on that channel, and while I was thinking how strange of a coincidence it was, after the band played, a coach started giving a very inspirational speech about strategy and perseverance in battles. I was battling cancer cells, and what the coach said applied to my situation word for word, and gave me encouragement in my fight. I knew I was led to that speech through that serendipitous timing of the song, and would never have heard it because I never watch football.

    God bless you and your precious child. My son at your child’s age was exhausting to care for. As a young child, he was a wanderer, and got lost several times, the first time when he was 3, leaving my house while I was in the shower, and found his way to a busy road. A passerby stopped her car and held him, looking around to see where where he had come from. His meltdowns were intense, but through a lot of early intervention, therapy, and fish oil supplements, he has improved tremendously, things have gotten much better, through God’s grace.

    I pray for you, and for all the caretakers who may feel battered and weary, to take rest in God’s love, knowing he is in control and is there to offer rest, love, support, and the help we need. God bless you, Christina.

  8. Christina

    Dear Janet, I so wish i could give you a big hug right now Janet. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I was just feeling so “battered” and I chanced upon your post. I don’t even know how I got around here. Today, you are the special angel God sent to lift me up. I have a 5 year old HF autistic son and he’s been doing so well I know its God’s grace. Hugs again sister!

  9. Janet

    Dear Opal, thank you for your well wishes! I take comfort in knowing that whatever I may go through, no matter what trial or tribulation, that I am carried by the Lord. Also, it makes me happy to know that by sharing this, it brings comfort to others as well, knowing they will be also. God bless you!

  10. Opal Clark

    Janet, your testimony touched my heart. It made me smile thinking how God was there for you every step of the way. May the Lord continue to walk you and your precious son step by step. God Bless!!

  11. Janet

    God has just seen me through an exhausting move. I am a single mom with a son with autism. He is entering middle school, and was being denied special education services, so I had to move to another school district with good services. I was overwhelmed about how I was going to do it with limited resources and no help.

    Well, God sent the help, and gave me the strength to do it, even though I struggle with chronic fatigue. A 13 year old boy helped me pack. Then the unthinkable happened. The movers left most of my stuff on the first floor breezeway (I live on the 3rd), and they broke a number of pieces of furniture, including my couch. My stuff, including electronics got wet from the sprinklers. I called the sheriffs, but they said it was a civil matter.

    At 11:30pm, I was desperate, and called movers. Someone actually called me back at that hour, and said I was very lucky because he was just coming home from another job with his partner. At midnight, the two men came and got my belongings all up in two hours. Their business card said, “Blessed Movers: Last minute moves OK”! Lol I knew God was with me.

    The job was not done. I had lived in my old apartment for 4 years, and had not expected to move, so it wasn’t in good shape. I had to clean and do minor repairs. Again, my son’s 13 year old friend helped me. It took many hours to do a deep clean, and finish packing some cabinets, because I had run out of time before the movers came.

    Then, I realized I forgot to call an appliance haul away company to remove my broken washer and dryer. The boy, with his can do attitude, said we could roll them to the dumpster on my furniture dolly. We managed to get the dryer, and got it to the dumpster, when a man with a truck said, ” I’ll take that.” He scraps metal for extra cash. I told him I had a washing machine that needed to go, so he followed me to my apartment, and with his experience, unhooked the hoses, and emptied all the standing water left from its last dying wash, and hauled it away in his truck! I was amazed at this, that we were spared having to get this heavy appliance on our own to the dumpster, with this man showing up with perfect timing. Again, I knew God was with me.

    God doesn’t shield us from difficulties, but He is there to aid and carry us through them. Even though I am a cancer survivor with compromised health and energy issues, He gave me the strength to get through this difficult move. He sent me the help He knew I needed. Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength Psalm 121:2 My help comes from the Lord the maker of heaven and earth!

    I hope sharing my experience blesses whoever reads it. We serve a wonderful God who loves us.

    1. Katelyn

      Hi Janet. I was feeling weary so I googled “Dear Lord I am weary.” I read your story and it brought me encouragement because right now I am feeling a bit weighed down with having to work and keep busy while low on energy. Thank you for sharing, because it helped remind me that God is always there to walk us through the hard times and that he will give us strength to do even the impossible. God bless you.

      1. Post

        Katelyn – You will make it. Do not give up. Praise God with your mouth. Praise in the face of weakness. Praise in the face of weariness. Defy the weights and the worries. Openly defy the fear. Praise God with what strength you have left. Give it as the last of your oil and receive a never ending supply.

        Get happy in God. It is a sign of faith, and the joy of the Lord is your strength. Let the weak SAY I am strong!! God bless you. We love you and are with you. Let that also give you strength. Rex

      2. Janet

        Dear Kaitlyn,

        I am glad sharing my testimony has uplifted and encouraged you. Your words of doing the “impossible” with God’s help ring so true! When I realized I had to move for the sake of my son’s welfare, you might as well have told me that I needed to build a rocketship, so he could go to school on the moon! When our help, resources, and energy are low, it is a feeling of impossibility that overwhelms us. But, if it is what we truly need, then our good Lord will find a way for us. Isaiah 40:41 says: but those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. My son’s new school’s mascot is the Eagle, and I am reminded of this verse when I see the school’s sign when I take him to school. He is well taken care of there and is happy. Nelson Mandela said, “It always seems impossible until it is done”.

        God bless you, and the others commenting here, uplifting the spirits of the weary. Remember that Joy in the Lord is your Strength. Nehemiah 8:10

      Hi Janet,

      I’m in the process of studying for my teaching certification for what seems like the millionth time. I’ve passed reading, writing etc but I’m 3 points short in math. It’s so frustrating because I’m a single mom like you and my son depends on me. All I want to do is teach in a regular public school but that math test keeps stopping me. Three points…sigh. For years, I gave up and just said forget it. But recently, I decided to try it again and here I am studying. I took a break because I feel so weary and try to figure out why so many people can get out of school, pass a test and go on but everything for me is such a slow, never ending process. I believe something good will come out of this. Your story touched my spirit and when you wrote that God doesn’t shield us from difficulties but he is there to aid us and carry us through I needed to hear that. THANK you so much for taking the time to write about your moving experience and how God showed up at just the right time. What an awesome God we serve!

  13. Tamika

    I too am tired and weary, I am dealing with anxiety as well as other health issues. Fear is preventing me from progressing. Two years ago God saw me through a stroke and brain surgery at 41 y/o. I know the will of God and his good graces. HOW DO YOU BECOME A HUMBLE SERVANT? I pray sometimes, I repent sometimes, I go to church sometimes, and I sin sometimes. I believe in God, I’ve accepted Him as my Lord and Savior, and I’ve been baptized. I feel like I am a terrible person to take God for granted. I’m tired. I don’t know my purpose here on Earth. Somebody, anybody please pray for me, because I’m all over the place

    1. Hannah


      I want you to know that I will definitely pray for you. I am dealing with tiredness and confusion. I have been seeking full time employ since December of 2014. I live with my parents who are increasingly getting impatient with me to get back to standing on my own two feet. I am also struggling for what the Lord’s call on my life is career wise and so I feel like I have no direction in my life.

      1. Post

        Hannah – Basically the same thing as to Tamika. The confusion does not come from God. And I know that the constant battle can make us weary. Trust God for strength and understanding. He will lead you out. He did not lead you into this. Again, knowing totally that God is the answer changes the way we approach Him. Seek Him till you get it. We love you. You will make it. We are praying for you.

        Our church has a miracle meeting tonight and tomorrow night at 7PM EST, watch it and believe – God can work for you at home. Rex

    2. Post

      Tamika – I also will pray for you. Just know this through all the conflicting feelings and things – God loves you and is for you, and He is not the one throwing all the guilt and confusion on you. Get that clear and then seek Him, knowing that He is for you and He is the answer. That will change the way to approach Him. Look at how everybody but the hardened judgmental religious were treated by Him in the Gospels – tenderly, honestly, and with a good result.

      Lay back and talk to Him and let Him love you. Read the Bible and expect Him to speak to you and deliver you. God is a loving God but He also is a faith God, who desires His people to know that He is the answer and to seek Him for the answer. It can be hard work at times but it is worth it. We love you. Rex

        1. Post

          Cijoy – God is not your problem and He is not the cause of your problems. Search the scriptures on this site and read the articles that jump out at you. God is your answer, and faith in God will move His hand. It is up to you to seek Him and find the right path out of all your troubles. The Holy Spirit will guide you. We love you. Rex

    3. hilliary

      Hi Tamika, can I suggest a book for you? “Unafraid” by Susie Davis is great for those who are living in fear and anxiety. Hope it helps.

    4. rose

      You can make it. Don’t look at the turmoil. God said he will never leave or forsake you.
      That means no matter what and I mean every thing good or bad. He is gonna make a way for u to make it.

  14. Grace

    Wow,very powerful and uplifting messages in this site. God is really using this site to keep me going. He renews my love for Him through all ur reviving stories.

    1. Post

      Grace – Thank you and bless you. Keep spending time in His commands and promises. Seek Him and praise Him. He WILL strengthen you from the inside out. God bless you. Rex

  15. shoshanah W.

    Thank you so much for this site. It is literally a life saver for those of us whom are weary and exhausted from the battles of this world.

    1. Post

      Shoshanah – Thank you. We all need to be encouraged by the word of God and by the Spirit of God. Take time on your own and just stop and praise God for a good while. There is nothing better to offset the heaviness of this world than to praise the God of the next. He says to ‘Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.’ Isaiah 61:3

  16. Red

    God has reasons. Whatever problem, trial or test we may be experiencing, everything came from Him alone. And being the ever-loving Father He is, He will not give us problems we cannot endure, trials we cannot handle or test we cannot pass. “Be patient. God isn’t finished yet.” (Phil. 1:6) Let us be still and know that He is God. He is faithful. He will keep his promises because He is the covenant. He will not forsake us no matter what. Let us offer our grievances to our Lord. Our tears can be prayers too.

    Our greatest lessons in life are gained through our deepest pain. Sometimes we just have to undergo the testing and the trials because that is where our relationship with Christ is being refined at its finest. For the love of God, let us not give up and serve the Lord tirelessly, knowing that He will always provide, and knowing that when we are weak, we are strong.

    “And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Cor.12:9-10)

  17. Kesia

    I’ve been struggling with my addiction for so long, and hiding it from my family i’ve reached bottom. And still the Lord is protecting me and my secrets, I sometimes just feel like giving up nothing is working. I’m a failure at everything my finances, my lovelife is non existing, been dissapointed over and over and i know the Lords way is the only way. yet its a struggle daily please pray for my healing and for light in my life.


    I am so tired. I am depressed and sad. no friends or anybody to talk to. I talk to God and it makes me happy. I tell him everything but Im still sad. I dont work but I haave hopes and dreams. I get excited for awhile then its gone. I pray God bless me and answer my prayers. I believe He is working on my right now and is always on time but the wait is exhausting but I wont give up because I believe although im sad and tired.

  19. Molly

In God,s everything is possible, my husband and cant let go

  20. Stephen

    I pray the good Lord help you all and me. I fell into sin on the net only now to feel like I have a seared conscience. I have anxiety depression and am supporting my wife and two children.I confessed my sin but have hurt my wife. I am still recovering from a nervous breakdown a year and a half ago and now my wife has depression. Bad thoughts. Like Satan is trying to kill us. Sinking feeling of hopelessness is horrible. Havant fell the Lords presence in my heart for so long just a burning anxiety. Please pray for me, my wife and kids. We feel so week like I can nearly see the lord Jesus. I feel like I am a black sheep.

  21. Janet

    Pray, read, write, exercise, play or hear music. These are my strengtheners. I get weak when I forget to go back to them. Energy comes from connection, to God and to others. A smile I received today meant more to me than that person will ever know. My energy connection right now is writing this comment. Rest in God. Our problems are temporary, and He is eternal.

    1. Stephanie


      Thank you for writing that comment! By you writing it and having it help you that in turn helped me when I read it!!! Praise be to God the Holy one! He doesn’t just help one person but through that person He helps so many! Blessings!

    Thank you for all your comments on this site I was in search of some uplifting scriptures because I too feel tired and weary and I came across this page and looked at all the comments and I know it was the Lord showing me that I’m not alone and he does hear me as well as all of you I think I was feeling pity for myself because I’m 26 a mother of four children 5, 4 and twins that are 2 I’m married have a full time job commute living with my mother with my family while we are in search of our own apartment or home and it has been so difficult to juggle all that and be a dedicated Christian I love the Lord he had brought me out of darkness not only me but also my husband I just feel I need my spirits to be lifted and I will take the advice I read in some of the other comments which is to read the word daily ask the Lord to lead me to scripture get in a study group and the book Good morning holy spirit sounds great for me I really want to develop my tongue I’ve tried and tried but I just don’t feel right so I’m going to look for that book thank you for posting that and I pray for all that are facing difficult situations to stand firm on the Lord word and that no weapon formed against you shall prosper! In Jesus name love and peace to all!

    There is often great hopelessness. A lonely and empty feeling and reality that is bottomless. I have been there many times. I have sunk to the lowest abyss. I find when I surrender that feeling and let go.. and let God, it sounds easy – but when I stop fighting and trying to carry it all… I stop, simply stop. I stop everything. I talk to God and allow myself to be. I pray, God I am tired, so very tired… I am done with it all… God knows how done I am… I close my eyes and sleep. I have three things I do when I feel myself sinking; there are many reason why I begin to sink. I allow myself to notice them coming to visit me. The 3 things I live by – I literally live by. Philosophies of life that serve me. 1. I am kind to myself. I do one of the ten things I have written down that support me by being kind to myself. Simple things like. 2. Play peaceful music to fill my mind and heart with healing vibrations. (no words) 3. Make a cup of Tea and enjoy the simplicity. 4. Recognize if depression is sneaking up and take one of my herbal remedies to support my serotonin levels. 5. Express my pain, upset or hurt in writing poetry or a blog. I don’t worry about the intention of it… I just write and vent. 6. Escape in nature, color or art. 7. I go for a drive and see where the power of God takes me. It is amazing who you meet. 8. Write down all the stuff that is messing you up. Ask yourself will any of this matter is five years? 9. Ask yourself this question. Is what you are thinking 100 % totally true? I mean is it really true? if you have a little question mark in your reply then there is your answer. 10. Do you have a goal list or a passion you escape in? if not it is time to discover your purpose in life. This has been my saving grace. Time changes little but with time a shift often happens. I allow myself to drift into the space of time and find peace in being still. Empty your mind… let go of all thoughts… and breath slowly. Feel your breathe and focus on the pictures you see in your minds eye. Pray on the light and let God do his Job. Love and light everyone Deborah Berry

    Whew! Yes, been there, done that!
    Can identify with a lot of the comments here.
    Some times you just need a good ‘listening to’ rather than a ‘seeing to’.
    Lots of things make us tired and weary:
    MY ministry: with too much emphases on the ‘MY’ and not enough on ‘JESUS’.
    Having or being part of a church where you are one of the 1 in 10 that ‘do’ while the rest of the church ‘does not’.
    Being part or having to deal with churches that think ‘The Grand Commission’ is an option not an essential. (For those struggling with this thought: Have you noticed that sheep beget sheep and not the shepherds? Think about it!)
    Unwillingness to deal with, yes; that stuff:sin. (Seeing ‘sin’ as my failure to reveal The Glory Of God rather than ‘some thing wot I’ve done or as something wot some body [Note the two word here] says I shouldn’t have done or should stop doing. [Problem: God’s Glory in you is on mute. Solution: Confess, then take the mute button off and give Him Glory! (whatever that means to you!). Sin or sinning then becomes less attractive if you get this one right! Requires practice.]
    Unwillingness of members of the church to actually love one another (rather than gossip, backbite, ignore one another’s needs for help or comfort, talk to one another in a civil fashion?).
    People and ministers, speakers all using the Bible as a blunt instrument to beat people and people groups over the head with rather (which takes real effort and real sensitivity to the Holy Spirit) than LISTENING to the PERSON and prayerfully LISTENING to the Holy Spirit Of God rather than what I think/have been taught/have been taught to say.
    A church that would rather follow her own agenda rather than listen to her Coming Bridegroom (and then DO what HE says!?!).
    Life it self. We live in a very fallen world. This is not our natural estate.
    Somebody said “What doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger.”. The Christian version might be “Where and what ever I’m going through right now should drive me back to The Cross to deal with my ‘self’ and make ‘me’ more like Jesus.”. There’s an awful lot of ‘self’ to be dealt with and that’s long and not easy.

    Don’t quit.

      Dear Ginger, God drew me to your comment as I came here searching for other people’s words regards weariness and depression…in particular he caused my finger to hover over and highlight “i pray that the lord will someway help me out because id rather be with jesus than to feel this way. i know he knowsmy heart and how i long to be with him”. I pray that God leads you to fresh hope through His many wonders and works. You may have heard of CAP…Christians Against Poverty…they are able to offer advice on financial matters… but whether you have looked them up or not I will hold you up in prayer and hope that your strength is renewed again and again…and I thankyou for posting on here and giving myself and others the opportunity to pray for you and your family

      Dear Ginger, I too have felt the pangs of everything you’re going through and as a result the only solution I have is to fix all problems in Jesus’ name. ..bit by bit, day by day…and I’m enjoy making the list, and checking it twice..paying bills and getting rid of lame people out of my life… this life is a gift and I shall not be the loser ! It’s a win win attitude that get’s you places…..try an attitude of gratitude! …

      Dear brother in Christ, you are God’s child and still the head of your household. You are doing awesome compared to some men who will not lift a finger to do what’s right. Keep your head and pray that God’s gives you your heart’s desires and He will just a have faith of a mustard seed. Be blessed!

    1. pjr

      Stand strong people are praying for you. God does love but sometimes we can feel forgotten. Use this to press forward.

      1. Andro Brown

        Hi my friend, I too have been where you are. I had just came out of a relationship with another man outside of my marriage. I felt that God had left me and did not hear me anymore because I had been unfaithful for so long. So after coming clean and thinking that I confessed my sins to the Lord I turned the channel one night and begin to listen to Charles Stanley’s topic about a woman that was presently experiencing the same thing that I was going through “not hearing from God” the Holy Spirit let me know that I had unconfessed sin in my life. Unconfessed sin will silence the voice of the Lord. At that point I begin to talk to the Lord about my lifestyle. I confessed the secrets that I held in my heart to the Lord because I knew that God knew about them but I did not realize that God needed me to speak them out of my mouth to Him. Once I did this I received breakthrough and begin to hear from the Lord. I pray for your strength in Christ. Find scriptures that involve your problems and pray to God by using those scriptures God cannot deny His own word. There is power in the word of God.

  31. Anna

    I am so tired. I get to a point where I feel like giving up on life and just leaving. Sometimes leaving here sounds easier than living another day. I’ve been reading my devotional daily. I’ve been trying to change my thought process and keep my eyes on God. I’m only 22 and I’m tired. It’s so hard to keep on focus with God. I have noone my age to fellowship with. I’m a single mother of 1 and I work 60+ hours a week. I am grateful for what the Lord has blessed me with but my walk with him becomes more difficult with every day that passes. I’m tired of being lukewarm. I want to be on fire for Christ

    1. Yvette Marvray

      Dear Anna, I was just looking for some scriptures on being weary. I am teaching a lesson and my lesson was about people being weary and God’s presence. The Holy spirit led me to this section. You can’t give up. Who will then be there for your child? Your child needs you. You want to be on fire for Christ, then be on fire. It depends what you call being on fire for Him. You say that you have been reading your devotional daily, but have you been studying the word? Just pick up your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to what God wants you to know. Sounds to me that your looking for an emotional feeling. Being lukewarm only applies to if you are for Christ or not. Are you in sin purposely? That’s what God’s mean doing the same sinful things over and over and then going into repentance. Taking Him for granted. If you are confessing your love for Him, believing in His word, having faith in Him, being obedient and trusting Him what more can you do. God knows your heart. I would advise you also to ask the Holy Spirit for the gift of your heavenly language. The speaking of tongues is to edify your soul and to build you up in Christ. Please purchase the book “Good Morning Holy Spirit” this will help you understand. It seems to me that you crave Jesus so pray and ask for your heavenly language, If you truly want it the Holy Spirit will give this gift to you. Please read Corinthians 12,13 and 14. Believe me God understands. John 14:27 – I am leaving you with a gift of peace, mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world can’t take away. Exodus 33:14 – My presence will go with you and I will give you rest. Deuteronomy 31:8 – Do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord is the one who goes before you. He will be with you, he will neither fail you or nor forsake you.
      Also, I know it’s hard when you don’t have people your age to fellowship with because with older people there may be a generation gap. Lead your friends to Christ. Find you a good Bible based bible study group, this will help you. Most of all Love Christ, love yourself and your child. Find some good praise songs and sing them daily. This does miracles for the soul. Not only are you making God rejoice, but you are rejoicing too! Love to you and your child.

    2. Misschel

      Hello Anna, My Name Is Michelle Stultz and I was cruising through and stopped to read youre Post! I am 29 (will be 30 May 30th) and also a mother (1 Boy) of a 4 Year Old. Your Post Sounds EXACTLY How I Feel… like LITERALLY You Explained How I FEEL!!! I Too want to Step Closer to God but Feel As If I DO NOT HAVE ANY MY AGE/FAMILY TO ATTEND WITH! I was wondering what State/City Your In!!!??? I will Keep You In My Prayers!!!

    3. Andrea

      Anna and Misschel part of what you feel may be your circumstances. Being a parent is hard work. Just keep on. The Lord knows your heart. It does get easier as your children grow. Keep centered on the Bible; write verses and tape them to mirrors, windows, the refrigerator, etc.; sing songs of praise while you drive, cook, whatever. If possible, find a good church. I will be praying for you both.

  32. Kyle

    I’ve been battling a sin since childhood which is now costing me my marriage, I fully believe in Jesus and His Written Word, but I am now at the point of giving up. Countless times I have humbled myself, repented and verbally submitted myself to His Spirit, all now what seems like it was in vain. Resisting the devil doesn’t make him flee, my temptation wasn’t met with a way out and I end up giving in to the flesh knowingly.

    My wife has asked that I make my choice by tomorrow; like choosing between heaven and hell, how I wish I could…

    1. Yvette Marvray

      Dear Kyle, Please don’t give up. You are not fighting against mere flesh and blood but against a spirit. Please read Ephesians 6:10-18. This will help you to fight against the fiery darts aimed at you. If you don’t have your heavenly language I would advise you to ask the Holy Spirit for this gift. It is given to you to edify you and your spirit. It is to help you petition to God for what your spirit truly desires. God says to pray without ceasing and it’s hard to when you run out of words to say, but the spirit never runs out of word and knows exactly what to say to God. If you ask the Holy Spirit for this gift be ready to receive and you have to want it in your heart. I would suggest that you read a book by Benny Hinn called “Good Morning Holy Spirit”. This is an excellent book to familiar with the speaking of tongues. God Bless you!

    Dear God, Mary – Elaine is like a vase that fell off the shelf and broke into many pieces. Who but you Lord can pick her up and put her all back together ? Oh Lord , I ask that you give life back to her . Restore her Lord , for your name sake. In Jesus name I ask it. Amen !

  34. Mary-elaine

    Need Prayer! I am drowning in my own sin! I brought this wrath on me and I am so sorry! I need Jesus to stand in the gap and redeem me from my destruction. Touch every being about me…physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

    1. Post

      Mary-elaine – I pray for the mercy and favor of God to be all over you. I believe for the grace of God to be sufficient to take care of everything that you have done and need. I am believing that you will experience the sweet restored fellowship and support of the Most High God Jesus Name.

      Please read these articles Salvation, Confession Restores Broken Fellowship, Mercy-bending the rules of God, and Scriptures on Forgiveness.

      And remember, when God forgives you you need to forgive you, so that you will be able to walk in the victory and strength and presence of the Lord to restore the things that were lost.

    1. Melissa

      Hi Nessa,
      Don’t lose heart..the Lord is powerful and can accomplish much if you truly believe in Him. Sometimes the things of this world distract us, we are human beings but if you try to concentrate on Him and His Love with all your mind, heart and soul, he will heal and strengthen you. Things of this world only bring us down but are no weight for those who serve the Lord or have a pure heart. Love yourself for you are a piece of Him.

    1. Yoli

      Nessa I know how you feel. Sometimes life becomes a challenge. What I do is read my bible. Second, I sing songs to my Precious Jesus. There are times I go for a walk and take my earphones and sing songs to my Jesus. Try it! Singing to Jesus makes me forget my problems. The secret to living the christian life is to get in His Presence. There is where the joy of the Lord is your strength.
      Father in Jesus name I pray for Nessa. Lord let her rest in your presence. There she will experience freedom, joy and feel your love. Lord your word tells us come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
      God bless you Nessa rest in JESUS Presence!!! Amen!!!

  36. May

    I Am Really Tired Of Life. I’m Only Holding On To It Just Because I’m A Believer Of God. I am In A Very Bad Mood.

    1. Yoli

      May – I pray Jesus will wrap His arms around you and give you peace. Speak scripture and get into Jesus presence through a song of Praise. Jesus is the answer to every situation Jesus is Lord.

    2. Post

      May – I pray for the grace and love of God to surround you with His warmth and appreciation in Jesus Name. May, read and meditate on the ‘In Him’ scriptures on this site. They will help you. Do your best to get the word of God into your mind, soul, and heart. It will change your thinking. Also, do your best to guide your thinking away from negative things and work hard at not following your emotions. They will take you down it you don’t take leadership over them. God bless you, we love you.

    3. Jerome

      You know I believe that God has something great for you. God really really loves you. It is a demonic spirit that has been telling you to kill yourself. I bind that in Jesus. Name. The devil wants to destroy you, but you are just right for God to use you and to minister to your family and friends.

  37. Rose

    I had to ask myself, if I’m this tired am I truly depending on His strength. Not, I am try to do things on my own. Thanks for the scripture reminders – Rose

    1. Yoli

      Rose try to spend time reading the bible in the morning. In Ephesians 6:10-18 tells us when you do read His word you are putting on the whole armor of God. You will sense the presence of our Lord. He will protect you and guide you. Also, in your morning time ask Jesus to bless you with wisdom. James1:5 I have experience Jesus when I spend time with Him. He always helps me. When I don’t have time to get in the Word I don’t have a good day.Cast all your cares on him for He cares for you Rose. To God Be the Glory.
