Prayers needed....
« on: December 02, 2012, 01:38:36 PM »
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

Lord, have mercy on Jade.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

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.
