Good evening my friends. Would you all please remember me in your prayers? I’m extremely over-worked (which is why I haven’t been on here much) and stressed. I don’t “feel” the closeness of my the Lord, but I know feelings are subjective and many times plain wrong. For example yesterday I was so weary and hit the “shake” button on my Bible app, whispering a prayer for something to help me. It landed on Deuteronomy 1:30-31 (“Then the Lord YOUR God, who is going ahead of you, will fight for you as you saw Him fight for you in Egypt and the desert. There you saw how the Lord Your God carried you, as parents carry their children. He carried you wherever you went until you came to this place.”) I’m so amazed how God used the scripture to speak to me and remind me He is fighting for me and carrying me through. What a great God we serve! And yet I still feel so lonely. I’m weary, I’m mentally and emotionally exhausted, and I just want to be happy. I see things happening all around me that I can help influence and all I feel is “blah.” I think I’m fighting depression (my separated husband recently decided to file for divorce, sending me into another emotional tailspin yesterday), and yet I dread trying to find a counselor. And then I’m rapture weary. So much is going on in the world- showing our redemption is so high- and yet I can’t get excited. What’s wrong with me? Sometimes I get afraid that my lack of enthusiasm will make me miss the rapture, which I know is false and ridiculous.
Have I completely confused you all and talked in a dozen circles? Suffice it to say I’d like your prayers if you can remember me during your prayer times. Thank youDecember 8, 2016 at 5:37 am #125775
Good morning Rachel,
Prayers have gone up for you. I can relate a bit to your situation, it isn’t easy by any means.
Remember the Lord is always near and soon we will be Home. The Lord bless you and strengthen you this day.
Love in Christ,

I will be praying for you. I completely understand where you are at. It sounds very like what myself and others are going through. I think we who love the Lord are being attacked from many sides by the enemy. The Lord has never let me down, I think our faith may being tested. Everyday I just turn it allover to the Lord and trust in Him to take care of me. I too am alone and that’s always rough , especially during the holidays. I will just keep looking up and praying for His return. Some days are so very hard. My health has taken a turn for the worse so I get so mentally confused some times I too feel not close to my Lord. I always remind myself that no matter what my damaged brain may think the Lord is always close to me no matter what my confusion may tell me. I lean not to my own understanding I chose to trust in God.
Dear Lord please let Racheal feel your loving presence in her life and bring her peace. Lord place other true believers in her life daily to help her. Please take the burden of all forms of exhaustion off her. Lord bring your peace and happiness into her life.
Love in Christ

Praying the depression will dissipate by the power of the Holy Spirit working in you, even as light removes darkness. May the God of all comfort encourage your soul with the hope of His promises tonight. In Yeshua’s Name.
John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."December 8, 2016 at 6:12 pm #125791
Prayers for peace of mind and spirit Rachel.
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.December 8, 2016 at 7:38 pm #125797
praying for you Rachel for the Holy Spirit to comfort and strengthen you.
Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen 49
