View Full Version : Help!!! Overwhelmed

03-09-03, 01:08 PM
It's been a rough 6 months and it feels like the bottom fell out; I need a prayer.

Father died almost 1 year to the day; girlfriend left me almost 6 months ago, had to file for bankruptcy and one of my best friend's, a deputy, was shot and killed Fri.

I believe! I have faith. I know God is in control and has a plan for each and everyone of us.

I'm very blessed and graciously thankful and praise, praise and praise him. I know things can be worse.

I simply need a lift!

x 12 Dear Overwhelmed, please know that you are in the loving arms of our King. HE alone will pull you through everything. I know how it feels to be overwhelmed, I am sort of there myself right now. But I feel we all have our trials so that lessons can be learned. I know you will see the reason for all thats happening to you soon, thats the way it works for me. I marvel at how God works in my life. Its scary when you are going through the trials but wonderful when its all over and you sit back and see God's hand in it all and think "So thats why that happened." Dear Heavenly Father be with "overwhelmed" and give him peace and reassurance of your love and presence. :angel:

Thank you all for the kind words/thoughts!

Here is my thoughts now:

"I see and understand that what has happened to me is God's higher and larger plan for my life. God has a purpose for me being where I am.

All the good and all the bad had to first meet with the approval of almighty God; meet with his approval to serve the ultimate purpose of my life.

I'm here by divine providence; God is working out something in my life...this shall turn out to my salvation and to my earnest expectation."

I no longer am seized with alarm!

Father please help Your son keep his eyes on Jesus and walk in the paths You have chosen. Please open the right doors and close the wrong ones. Please meet each need as only You can. Thank You.

Pray that you will give him the strength to continue his spiritual walk with you and transform him into your ways. You ahev taguth him to be single-minded by looking into your ways only. Lord, thank you for showing your grace upon him. Shower him with your abundant blessing. In Jesus Name. Amen!
