A Little Help Please

 

How can I keep going when everything is going wrong? So this is where I need your help. There is really only one thing I need from you at this point.  What has helped you more than anything when you were at the worst point of your life?

Hey there! I’m glad you stopped by today. This post is a little unusual for me because I really love to talk inspiring Biblical truths and practical applications, as well as prayer journals and everything faith-related. This post today is more of an open letter to my readers. If you are a first-time reader, my apologies, but here goes…

When I set out on the journey to writing a book, I had no clue what I was doing. I wish I could tell you it’s been easy, but it hasn’t. For many reasons. Needless to say, the one thing I wish I could have more is someone to bounce off a few ideas. Someone to understand how protective and excited I am over the topic of this book. Someone to listen and say, “Did you think about this side of it?”

The publishing team has entered the very last stage before this book goes to print and I really want to make sure that I’ve covered the most important issues around the book topic. I have one more opportunity to read it through and make sure I’ve written what God has wanted me to write. So what is the book really about?

One More Step is a message of hope and encouragement for those who feel they can’t go on. Using the never-failing promises in God’s Word, I’m showing you how you can discover the strength to push through your pain and persevere when you’d rather just give up.

In a nutshell, this book answers the question:

How can I keep going when everything is going wrong?

So this is where I need your help. There is really only one thing I need from you at this point.

What has helped you more than anything when you were at the worst point of your life?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for leaving your answers in the comments today!

  1. 2015 has been one of the hardest years of my family’s lives. We have experienced Spiritual Warfare from so many directions, (multiple financial hits, health concerns with our son, job stressors, struggles to meet basic needs) but through it all I have focused on 2Corinthians 4:8,9 & 16-18 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. … Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is seen is eternal.” In this passage I am reminded to keep my eyes focused on Christ! His Cross & His Love for me will see me through the hardest of days!

  2. I don’t know…I’m there right now…

    1. Bless you! God’s got you. These beautiful comments will help; I agree with the suggestions they’ve made!

  3. The one thing that always helps me when I feel down and discouraged and at my worst is putting on my favorite praise and worship music and singing to the Lord.

  4. I was diagnosed with Breast cancer this past March and I feel I’m going through the worst time of my life right now. I just started Radiation last week. My friends have been a great support to me with driving me to my appointments and dropping off food. Also praying for me. I find I’m relying on God to help me get up each Monday thru Friday to even go to Radiation. So I guess God and my friends are helping me go through this. I’m not saying I’m out of this dark spot in my life but it’s making it easier to endure.

  5. When I was at my lowest, I started keeping a little notebook with me and filled it with scripture quotes, photos, notes of inspiration or prayers from friends, and as I read the Word I added to it. Whenever I felt particularly low or distant from God, I had a little go-to to remind me how much He loves me and to lift me spirits. Each time I read a note from a friend, I called them and continued to reach out to them for prayer.

  6. I had to stop wanting to get out of my situation and come to a place of surrender where I gave it to God even if I didn’t understand why I was there. I came to realise that He wanted big changes from me in my heart (not for others to change like I wanted) and that the more I surrendered to him the more I changed, which turned the whole situation around to something beautiful. Now I can see that God had a beautiful plan all along, but when I looked at it with my worldly eyes I only saw pain that I wanted to get away from. God’s ways and thoughts truly are higher than any of mine.

  7. F.R.O.G. Fully rely on God. Give up to God what troubles you the most. Let him carry your burdens, that is what he is here for. I have had a couple instances in my life that I just couldn’t handle any longer. I would start to cry and just ask the Lord to take it, take my pain, physical and emotional whatever I was going through at that time and He never let me down. Peace came. Healing came. I used to drink myself numb every Friday night due to emotional pain over something I had done. I was a single mom, I shouldn’t be doing this. I had my beer lined up ready to drink one night…and I just started crying and praying…. Not one beer did I drink. The one that was opened, never finished. Thank you Lord! He hears our prayers, our cries for help. He gives us peace when we need it the most. We just have to fully rely on Him….not ourselves or anyone else to see us through.

    1. What an AWESOME testimony, Tammy. Thank you for sharing and amen- he always hears us.
