Today’s sermon really touched my heart. It was about finding freedom in Christ. Finding freedom and peace from the wars that we battle in our journey. I realized that I’ve not been fighting my battle and did not have that freedom. I’ve not been trusting God with my trouble. I have not surrendered my trial, fear and depression to Him. I’ve been blindly just making it by letting my numb and foggy brain just not think. So here is my prayer. I know it will not be easy and I dread the journey. It’s been long and likely to be longer but Jesus can help me.
Please forgive me for not truly trusting you. You want to give freedom and peace from the trial you have allowed in my life. I’ve let my fears and hopelessness overwhelm and overtake my heart. Help me lay aside the fears, and depression. I’m so weak and can’t go on but you can help me. Help me to trust you fully and find joy in life again. Help me to surrender my will and let yours be done. You haven’t chosen to take the pain and trial away but help me be content with the place you have me. Give me strength and courage to find the path you want me to walk. You know how long the journey has been and only you know how much longer the journey will be. Just help me rest in your love for me. I love you. Thank you for your goodness and faithfulness to me.
