I hate to bother you all again with the constant asking of prayers for my well being. I'm sure most of you have bigger things to worry about.

I am constantly being beset by guilt, anger against other, resentment for my own mistakes (by word and deed), and multitudes of other sins. My repentance is crap at best and I often feel like everytime I fall, God gives up on me bit by bit. I'm trying to have more faith that He'll forgive me everyday, but things just get worse. People tick me off at work, at home, on the internet, my profitless thoughts are constantly flying, and my heart is not set in the right places even when I try to do good. How much more can I take?

In short, whenever I at least try to focus on the things that are profitable and good for me (gratitude, self-control, thanksgiving, good works, etc.), something comes across my way and causes me to stumble. I'm tired of this weakness.

Prayers would be appreciated,

Jade

I feel your pain bro. I'm going through something similar at the moment where my heart isn't in the right place and get angry a lot at work.

I pray that God strengthens you and helps bring you peace.

Forgive me if I've ever been the cause of any online offenses.
