Fear of change. I was afraid of things that could happen and that were happening. I have claimed that verse as mine. My hope is in God. He is my strength.
Praise God for being with me and rooting my faith in Him. Praise God for his answers to prayer. Reach out to him. My Tug a War Is Devil is putting doubts in my thoughts with my journey on losing weight that I gained two pounds again from last wk. And not getting or finding a job. I long for things to be as they were, for his absence to be permanent.
My child is better off without his negative influence. My tug of war is finances…my daughter who has a eleven month old son lost her job and now everything has fallen on me. I live from payday to payday not having enough to pay all the bill. Please keep me in your prayers. LTC My tug of war is the constant battle of guarding myself without building walls, a hurting heart is a terrible thing and proceeding with caution often causes lack of trust and missed opportunities.
I have Faith but often the Risk taking is overwhelming when it seems it does the most damage to me. I am learning slowly but surely how not to be offended when I am done wrong but I am only as human as the next person. Things are actually going pretty well for me right now, but I guess my couple of tugs of war would be my son Marc.
He realizes that he has messed up and is so scared of losing them. I need the Lord to give me the right words to say to him as we are having breakfast later on this morning. He is thirty years old and still not making good choices. I want to encourage him, yet I need to be firm with him. My other tug of war is the Daniel Fast that my church is on.
Please pray that I am strong while fasting and praying and please especially pray for my son Marc. Thank you and God bless you Gwen for all the work that you are doing for the Kingdom of God. My tug of war is that I am under a heavy spiritual attack which gives me intense anxiety. I am rebuking and speaking scripture and truth. Please pray that I would continue to stand firm and trust God.
I know that what we go through in life has a purpose. Thanks so much. Thank you Sherry! Thank you for your encouraging words and I greatly appreciate your prayers. I am believing God will work this out for his glory and my good. May The Lord bless you and your family!
Thanks again. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I can so understand your fight, because I have been there just this week. The enemy cannot stay where Jesus is. I will pray for you Lyndsi. Thank you Lyndsi! I appreciate your email. I was also told that none of this is a surprise to God and yet He still chose me. My eyes have been opened so widely to how filthy we all are as sinners and that none of us is worthy of what Jesus did for us, but He still died because He loves us.
The thought of losing my mind completely, scares me to death. I rebuke all the time and ask God to forgive me as far as the east is from the west. I have never been so scared in my life and I just want Jesus back. Remember that condemnation is not from God. Just this morning I was praying against condemning myself for this attack. These thoughts are not you.
I was reading breaking free this morning and Beth M. Said the first step to victory is asking God for help. I realized that I was asking for Him to free me and take this bit not asking for His help. You will make it through this.
I know it! You are not crazy and not will you go crazy. Those are All lies. You can read some more of my struggles on my blog if you want. We are entering a prayer and fasting time at our church.
Thank you so much for your prayers Lyndsi! God responded immediately! After viewing this site, I did a search for similar situations online, and I found another site that was very eye-opening. The one writing in was going through the same thing, the minister responded in an amazing way. There is no way I want to please him!!! We also need to focus on Philippians This was so eye-opening and so incredibly humbling and I just praise God, for the wisdom and insight for this page, chatting with you and then leading me immediately to the other website.
God bless you, I will be praying for you too! I am deeply humbled and so grateful for a faithful loving God that can reach through any means to speak to our hearts through one another! Thanks for sharing! We will get through this season. Thanks for your prayers as well! My tug of war is with infertility. The devil puts defeated thoughts, doubts of unworthiness, and fear in my head.
I have two babies in heaven, no living children, and have gone through two unsuccessful fertility treatments in the last nine months. It is the desire of my heart and I desperately long to have one healthy biological child. I am very blessed to have a sweet and healthy and beautiful eight year old step daughter. My husband has filed for full custody and that is very stressful as well.
Please pray for all of my thoughts to be positive about having a healthy biological child, for the stress of the custody case to be minimized, for my step daughter to be protected, for my husband and I to be able to continually forgive her mother, for God to increase my faith, and for me to be joyful positive encouraging and God centered daily!
Mine too! I was just about to post but I saw your post before I started writing my own. Thankfully I now have one biological daughter. She is 16 months old. I also have three angle babies waiting to be reunited with me one day. I recently learned that I have a chromosomal problem called balanced translocation. It causes fertility struggles and miscarriage. The devil and technology are tugging me in many directions.
At what point are we playing God? I will continue to use reproductive technologies that I feel are Lord pleasing and hope in Him for another child. Please know that you are not alone. Many women Born To Cry - The Raymen - Bible Belt Freak Out (CD) through this.
Seek support from your local church or nearby churches. My church has a support group and I see a counselor at my church who also struggled through infertility. Praying for you and for me and for all of those struggling with this tug of war. Paula, you are definitely not alone!!! I too struggle with infertility and have 3 angel babies!
Our Lord has led me to a great doctor in Mexico who has been helping me with my infertility. Keep praying sister — The Lord hears your cry. And I pray also that you leave all your burdens at His feet. I also pray for the wisdom of my doctor and to Trust in the Plan Our Lord has laid out for me. My tug of. Weboth did some pretty ugly things to one another but we have forgiven each other and are now walking with the Lord. The problem is our families are not happy at all and we are scared to lose them.
We need God to soften their hearts and see that both of us have changed for the better. They tolerated us before but now they are adamantly against us. My husband and I just met a couple of years ago. We knew that this was no surprise to God and believing He brought us together we trusted him in walking through it with us.
Praise God! We were married in August and just 3 months later the cancer was back. I have had migraines for years but this past year they have been coming nightly.
I get very little sleep. We are both struggling with corruption at our jobs and due to the cancer we have taken our house off the market and given up those plans for now. We feel like we overcome the tug of war just a bit and may pull that rope a little in our direction and then the pull from the enemy comes a little bit harder again.
God did not bring us together to be miserable. We believe he is strengthening us but it can be very discouraging. Please pray for our strength in standing together as one. The enemy is working hard to destroy what God intended for good. My tug of war is my weight, I eat the least amount of anyone in the house and yet still continue to struggle.
I have been trying Born To Cry - The Raymen - Bible Belt Freak Out (CD) cut some things out of my diet and am seeing some success. He uses days like today to allow himself to fall into a deep depression which can cause his alcohol problem to be much worse.
Much prayers needed. Thanks in advance. Hi Fabiola! I remember the longing and waiting and loneliness too. Imagine that! He waited until I was 33 to bring my husband, and the funny thing, is that even now, I am not really that prepared for marriage.
It is so so hard to be married at times. But God knew the best time for me to have a husband, when I would be most able to succeed at it. Trust that He knows the perfect time for you as well. I learned that if I was lonely before I got married, it soon followed me into the marriage, after the honeymoon stage wore off.
Sometimes a marriage can be a dark, cold, and lonely place, unfortunately. It is not the way God intended, but we all carry our burdens and struggles into marriage, and it almost magnifies things.
But it makes things hard, and we cannot cling to our mate. Our mate will never be able to take away the ache we feel for love and belonging. I think God made it that way for a reason. A sad truth. I wonder what would happen if you started to pray for that thing, and move towards it, in order to find enjoyment in life now. For me, I started to chase after God, missions, and worship and singing!
It was Born To Cry - The Raymen - Bible Belt Freak Out (CD) a beautiful time of exploring the blessings that God wanted me to uncover. He is SO good to us! In this long drawn out reply, I guess what I want to encourage to you, is that there is much to be enjoyed and explored in this life alone. If you put so much hope in finding someone else, it will surely let you down, when you find it. Remember contentment is being filled with peace, where you are.
I know this is probably not the advice you want to hear, but I am also praying the Lord bless you in your waiting, and that He bring you fulfillment as you wait, like you never knew possible. I pray you would see, hear, and know Him like never before, and that that would bring you great excitement and passion! I suffer from clinical depression, Ptsd from bad childhood experience, and anxiety. I have suffered with this for most of my 56 years. I could see the bottom hurling towards me and, while I could not claim to be a Christian, I prayed every night for peace.
This past sept I tried to end my life. But God was not ready for me and by miracles, he had my husband save me in the middle of the night. God has given me the right prople to help me, He has given me enough leave to stay home and heal both mentally and spiritually until Jan My struggle now is going back to work on the 21st.
I am a middle school teacher. I no longer feel that calling. I am praying and trusting that the Holy Spirit will find a different job for me. Hi lmarie, I know what you are talking about. Sometimes I make progress and at other times, I feel like I am going backwards. It can feel overwhelming to say the least. I am still seeing a counselor these days, luckily this woman is helping me to see that Im not as powerless as I feel, that there are always choices.
I am so sorry for your difficulty Born To Cry - The Raymen - Bible Belt Freak Out (CD) now. I am praying for you during with understanding. The Lord will heal you in Jesus name! What has helped me is to feel my tears of sorrow instead of growing hard with rage.
Thank you for your prayers! I am glad that you have found a dedicated therapist. I know God is with me and feel that He has given me a new life. I fear though that if I go back in that classroom what steps I have gained will disappear. I know that God is with me, but wrestle with that part right now. I will suggest EMDR to my therapist. Thank you so much for your reply. God bless you my friend.
I wonder if your family can financially afford for you to not work for a while? I know this can be a luxury for many people, but sometimes it is a necessity. Sometimes we can be so hard on ourselves and expect too much of ourselves. I spent many years serving as a missionary, servant in the church and community, etc. I was spent from trying to pour out more than I actually had in my vessel. Because, my own vessel was cracked from lots of trauma, and I was leaking fast.
He finally had me stop…everything. I have needed this season of resting, and allowing Him to love me, despite my sinfulness, despite my guilt and shame, to keep giving to and pouring into me, and to keep pursuing me, like a bride waits for her groom. I love the story of Hosea and Gomer. But God continues to pursue me…and you. He will not stop. I have found this period of rest, more transforming for my faith in who God is, than in most of the times I was out there serving…is that horrible to write?
But when you have gotten frostbite, when it is exposed to heat and warmth, it actually causes MORE pain, and it can feel like you are on fire the pain of our hearts being healed. We know though that if you have frostbite, that will only make you worse off, even though it might seem like temporary relief. Our goal is to keep going through the pain. To face it, acknowledge it, pray about it often, to reach out to others for support with it, to not grow cold or hard towards it in an attempt to get over it, and to not get stuck in it either, where we fear we cannot get out.
It sounds crazy, but facing the pain is the best way we will be able to heal, and allow God to bless us with His grace and mercy. My heart goes out to you lmarie, and I will keep you in my prayers. You are doing an incredibly brave thing by facing your pain, most people avoid it, and when you get through it, things will be better and easier than you ever thought possible. You can do this! Keep going, and walk by faith, not by sight. We cannot see how glorious we will become yet, but it is coming!
It is mostly about sexual abuse, but even if that has never happened to you, it talks about things like betrayal, powerlessness, ambivalence, etc. It is so good in showing people that even though at one point in our lives we had to take care of ourselves childhood in a dysfunctional homeGod is now inviting us to allow Him to take care of us.
This means we have to put down our weapons of how we protected ourselves in childhood, and allow Him to be our King. I highly recommend it! Bless you!!!! My tug of war is with guilt of my past.
I know God forgives me, but I still deal with it day to day. Please pray fir healing for me. My tug of war is depression and heartbreak. My tug of war is being sucked into a pit of helplessness, hopelessness, despair, depression, loneliness, and anger as I deal with months of migraines that occur about every other day. They are ruining my life and affecting my relationships with my four-year-old daughter and my husband.
Thank you for this encouraging words for this New Year! Please pray for me as my job is getting more complicatedI need wisdom and patience. I love you all GiG!!! Please pray for my marriage… I have been fighting for it for the last six months. God has proven himself faithful and answering many of my prayers but I am sure there is a long road ahead.
I have stood strong with my faith in God and he has been my rock through all of this. The enemy is always clouding my thoughts and I have found myself in a rut so many times and its hard to get out of. Thank you for the prayers! Death hit us hard and finances have plummeted. I think finances would be my tug of war. My husband and I have taken a cut in pay to try to help.
We also just lost out health insurance on the 31st of December. He and I both have medical issues that for right now have been placed on hold. He begins treatments in two weeks. But these are the closest to my heart. Please pray for my marriage, my husband is under fierce attack from the enemy and it is deeply affecting our marriage. I am tired from it. He is the pastor of our church and has been hit hard from the enemy this past year.
The enemy is prowling around and looking to take him out of service. Please pray for safety for our family and a Renewed mind for my husband. Becky, it sounds like our requests are very similar. I will def be praying for you guys. Published December 1st by Acropolis Books, Inc. More Details Original Title.
