Defeated. Discouraged. Depressed. Down. Done.
Those are all words that I would use to describe how I have been feeling lately. If I am completely honest. If you ask me how I am, I’ll say “fine” because no one wants to know the truth.
I found this on Pinterest. I am not totally sure of the source, but would love to be able to site them. This quote stood out to me. Life has been dragging me backwards for a while now.. For a year we have been praying and waiting for God to answer. Every time it seems like a door is getting opened, it gets slammed in our faces. It’s starting to hurt. I feel like we can’t possibly get dragged backwards anymore.
Difficulties have been coming from every direction. Health. Finances. All of it. It’s hard to not feel defeated after so much has happened. I imagine that when we finally get shot forward, we will be launched forward with more speed than we ever imagined.
I know that God’s timing is perfect. I know that it is all in His hands. I know that He is good even if we are stuck in this hallway forever. I know all of this. But, I am a flawed human who is just really struggling right now.
I only write this to beg for your prayers. I hate feeling defeat. A lot. I also want people to know that they are not alone. I know that I am not the only one feeling this way. I know that there are many people suffering more than I. We are in this together.
How can I pray for you? Let’s just make this depressing post all about uplifting one another!! Let’s pray without judgement!
