A Time of Discouragement
September 15, 2019
Yesterday was the first time in a year that I did not finish a post. Yesterday just felt hard. My legs are real weak which makes it hard to walk. I feel very discouraged in my faith. In fact, every night for the last three weeks, I spend some time playing some worship songs and praise God, and last night I did not do any of that. I feel in this moment that God is distant, and that He does not care. I read:
11I say this because I know what I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future. 12Then you will call my name. You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13You will search for me. And when you search for me with all your heart, you will find me! (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
I really need to sense God’s goodness again, to seek God like never before, but I feel so discouraged in my faith and do not know what to do. I hope things get better soon.
Father in Heaven, I am really struggling right now to sense Your goodness, and I am not sure what to do. I ask for Your help to connect with You, to experience Your presence, power and love. Please help me with this I pray.
