I need you to give me the meaning of this life again. I need you to give me something to hope for again. I need you to return Faith to my soul.
Today, I just feel hopeless, I feel lost. I could literally cry on a dime. My mind just seems flooded with problems, more problems then I can solve. This burden is so heavy, I can't hold it any longer. I can't think straight, I can't concentrate. I have been getting overwhelmed easily and that is something that doesn't happen often to me.
I can literally feel the room closing in on me and I can't breathe. I want to leave but I can't. I can feel the anxiety building up, an attack coming on. I just get more and more lost. I get more and more hopeless.
What do you do when it seems that hope is lost?
Sometimes I believe that God has me get to this point for a reason. When I get to this point when I feel all hope is lost, He reminds me that He is here and He is not letting go. I can just feel the rush and relief coming back to me so I can hope once again. With God, hope is never lost, we just have to know where to find her.
1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
