Praying for hope and strength

I’m so down. I feel weak. I am at a point where I can barely think of what to say as if it probably doesn’t even matter. My mind is jumbled and I am in agony. I don’t even trust that God is on my side right now. I used to put my trust in Him. Sometimes I feel dead inside and weary. I hope I’m not lost forever. I have some big responsibilities and I fear I am messing up. I am praying for a sign. I try so hard but feel I am nowhere and I need to feel loved and looked after. I need hope and strength.

I feel similar. My mind and anxiety are taking over. It's very difficult. I find that meditating or relaxing kind of helps. I hate the despair. You know that you are not alone. Sometimes I try to stay busy, other times I just need to be alone to restore my mind and body. I think we need to figure out that balance. I wish you peace.

God does love you and is more on your side than you know. Feelings are transient. Gods love is forever. Jesus suffered the same agony in the garden before he was crucified. Jesus suffered and is inviting you to lift your agony up as he did for salvation of the whole world. Stay strong and know you are never closer to God than when you are on the cross with him.

It’s hard to believe and feel the hope love strength even though I know God is love and that His love is everywhere.
