what is wrong with me?

59 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ/believe that he died for us/believe that I will have everlasting life.

Why am I so sad? I feel so very small and insignificant. It seems like I can't shake the saddness lately. I know we are not to be "of this world," we are to just "live in it." I recently lost my job. I came from an employment place where people proclaimed to be Christians, and yet, they lied and did the back-stabbing numbers and I got laid off because they wanted raises. I am forever learning of others who are getting hired at great salaries, yet, who have no education to back up their pay. I am tired of this world. I'm tired of having to witness it. I am tired of people getting ahead because of their looks. I'm tired of people getting ahead because of who they know, not what they know.

I am tired of being in relationships where I am the one always giving and getting little in return.

Usually, I am a very giving person and happy. I can't seem to snap out of it. What do you all do when this happens?

I can't seem to get "me" back.

thanks

I used to think that I was here for a reason...that everything happened for a reason. Now, I find myself wondering about all of it.

I used to think that I had impact on others/that by my very existence, there was a reason God put me here/why "bad" things happened to me....I never doubted it--I knew that some day, I would be able to share with others my experiences, or whatever.

I used to believe that all things happen for a reason, no matter what. Now, I don't know that is true. Why would God, out of the bazillion of people worry about me? I am only one in billions, and I am not significant at all.

do others feel this? or am I truly alone?

Bless you soverysmall,

Welcome to the boards. I do hope you will stay and communicate with us. :laugh:

It sounds as if you are in sore need of fellowship.

We are here just for that. If I had to rely on what the world feeds me everyday. I too would despair.

Thanks be to God! I can rely on Him, Jesus! No burden is too small. He has supplied us with His Word. This is good nourishment in times like these. Focus on Him. He wants you to know Him. Despite the wind and waves all around you. If you focus on Him? You won't sink!

May I inquire? How is your life ordered?

Are you attending Church regular?

Are you reading the Word regular?

Are you seeking to know Him thru prayer?

These aren't designed to be personal questions. They are asked because these things are essential in the Christian walk.

Are you on your kness worshipping and thanking Him for all he has done? Rather than counting thine enemies?

It's settled! The Lord Loves you! If it were not so? There would be no Cross.

Dread , fear, despair, etc... these things don't come from our Father.

The Lord Jesus came to usher in the Kingdom so that you would be free. That you would have life and have it abundently. We are to be light and salt. Who lights a candle then covers it with a bedpan? How will a lamp burn with no oil?

I would ask again. What is your relationship with the Lord like these days?

Peace,

Dave

Why else? Because He loves you!!! :laugh:

Yes you are! Your life has meaning and God knows and loves you just the way you are. You are significant to Him!

Thanks, Dr. Luke for giving me some insight...and thanks to you, too, Guest_God's child. I'm surprised nobody else has posted, but I guess the "members" have their reasons.

Anyway, thanks to you both. I appreciate it.

The reason that you did not get much in response is because the members cannot post here. This section is for guests and moderators. If you register and become a member then you can "talk" to them in the other forums, and I know they will respond to you. :t2:

And small, please remember that God created you. He designed you down to your eyelashes. He made you unique and different and special.He took as much care in creating you as He did when he designed the universe. He loves you.

Hi Soverysmall, :

God loved you so much that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

That's a great promise, to realize that Jesus left His place in heaven to come to this earth to die for mine and your sins --so we can be with Him some day.

Realize we are not of this world , our real home is in heaven and we are just walking through.

Someday soon we shall see the One who loved us so much ....we shall see Jesus face to face and we will feel so small ..

All the difficulties we go through right now will look very small with eternity.

If I think about the future .....it gives me hope :rofl:

Alot of people in the bible were depressed and sad too and God always pulled them out again and often they did great things for Him.

Maybe the Lord is going to use you to help people who feel the same as you do.

I can have the tendency to focus on circumstancis..but the key is to focus on God in my circumstancis and it really helps, if I realize all the blessings I have it makes me want to shout and I feel really bad about beig selffish.

You will snap out the way you feel ,its up to you, you can either choose to stay in it or simply refuse those feelings and turn to God with more Bible reading and prayer.

Concentrate on other people who are in pain or who 's circumstancis are so much worse.

Try to do something nice for somebody everyday and this will make you feel better if you do it as on to the Lord! :t2:

Hope this helps a little??

Love in Christ

If and when you register as a member, "soverysmall" you might consider using a different nickname. You see, although in terms of holiness and in creation, we are smaller than God, He has created us to tbe the center of His creation! Do you know that mankind is the center and purpose of all of God's creation? Do you also know that God created you for His purpose? The whole universe was created for man's life and enjoyment, and you were created for God's life and enjoyment.

So you see, you are not so very small at all! In fact, you are an important part in God's economy (His plan). Never underestimate yourself.

As far as your problems, well, I don't have the best advice. I always hate giving advice anyway - I would rather give you Christ. The Lord leads us in ways that we cannot even imagine sometimes. But this often is the way that God works His way into us. In all our trials and tribulations, the best prayer is, "Lord, I do not know what you are doing, but I just want to take time to gain you more through this experience. Lord, gain my heart today." If you pray this prayer the Lord will come in, and He will gain you. Whatever you need, the Lord is to you. All you have to do is turn your heart to Him each day. People will always betray you and let you down. The Lord never fails. He will never let you down.

Much Grace,

~G

Hello everyone ;)

Sorry about misunderstanding the no-post thing. It makes sense that you must be a member.

I have had a "turn" of events for me. I am still unemployed and now have some scary health 'things' going on, but, I also am being made aware every day (EVERY SINGLE DAY) for the last few days of how much God does care for me and is there for me.

I have always thought of myself as having a strong faith. Somewhere along the line, even though I shared my faith with others, I lost the true "in-my-heart" belief/feeling. I think I'm getting it back. Maybe you were right (forget who), about maybe I was to go through this to get closer to God and to be some kind of an example for others.

Thanks to all of you. I don't know what would be a good nickname to use on here. I guess I need to think on it. ;) (would I have to fess up that it's the former "small"?) ;)

I may only be young kid but I understand I have been to that point a million times but you have to find at least one thing that is still worthwhile there is always something. You must have faith that God will see you through. I know this has become a cliche over the years, but here I go: for every cloud there is a silver lining. May I have done my part in God's plan and God bless.You have my prayers.

From a fellow believer,

Blaze

small, no you would not have to confess it's you! ;) That would be entirely up to you. You would be most welcome on the boards as a member, and you could get a lot of good Christian fellowship.

That goes for you too Blaze. And you are correct, sometimes we do need to look for the silver lining. Sometimes, we are the silver lining. God blesses us every day, and we should take the time to reflect on it.

The exact same thing happened to me. I'm a christian, they are christians but I wasn't extended, and my christian folks instead chose

non-christians who are modesty aside, not really performing.

God's love for us is so amazing that I have no words to describe it. It's so cool, he doesn't have to love us, but he does. That's why, I love even the people that I don't feel comfortable around. If Jesus cared enough to love me, I can follow his example and love them.

An eight year old post speaking about prophecy fulfilled among us everywhere.

Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Let us not become the fulfillment of this prophecy but instead follow Jesus still.

Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation -- some fact of my life -- unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.

Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.

God Bless all who find acceptance in God:

God grant me

the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

the Courage to change the things I can,

and the Wisdom to know the difference;

Living one day at a time;

Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;

Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,

not as I would have it:

Trusting that you will make all things right

if I surrender to your will;

that I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with you forever in the next.

God Our Father, Infinite and Amazing Spirit, come and fill us with your Love, Joy and Peace in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation that we might be lights in the darkness shining forth your glory in the presence of our enemies.

In Jesus Name,

Gary

There is nothing wrong with you. We all go through dark times where the sadness overwhelms us. Those of us without families the holidays can be very difficult and sad. I"m so thankful I have friends who understand this and my Worthy family who have lifted me up more times then I can count. I"m not going to say something like it will pass, yes it will but when your in the midst of it it doesn't seem like it. Just know that God is still in control even in the darkness, that I can promise you.

Many times I felt like this, and some verses came to my mind:

Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled".

Psalms 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment;in his favor is life:weeping may endure for a night,but joy cometh in the morning.

Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

God loves you, and he never forgets justice.

God bless you.

I can't seem to get "me" back. The difference between our faith and every other belief system is the difference between "advice" and "news". Yeshua didn't just come to give advice. He came to bear our debt, to pay for the penalty of our sins, the wages of sin is death, so that we could be free to forgive one another as he forgave us. And so that we could receive the kind of love we as beings so desperately need - unconditional, accepting love. None of us had this kind of love that we need, only Messiah could love us and he did so, so that we could become the kind of people he created us to be.

It's not what we can do for God but what He has done for us. He entered "our world," He took on

"our humanity," He bore "our sins," He died "our death, "He was resurrected for "our life," He's coming again for "our glorification."

Paul in his letter to the Romans is urging us on the basis of all that he taught on, on the basis of all that has been done, he urges us to become living sacrifices:

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1, 2 KJV)

If we have not understood all that the mercies of God has done, if we have not understood doctrinally and theologically deep enough, all that Messiah has accomplished for us, then we have become useless to him. God is calling us to live our lives as living sacrifices unto him. Our problem is, we are so prideful that we are not willing to give up anything for others. When a sacrifice was laid upon the alter there was a great deal of suffering involved, the animal experienced pain and suffering. What are we willing to give up? What are we willing to place upon the alter? So that we can become a blessing to others, and become servants of the Most High God?

thanks
