    I feel like my world is crashing around me, and I'm questioning my belief in God. I am struggling.

    Hi ESK. I recently posted the same thought. Im a new member and struggling with my faith as well. But blessed are you for coming over and seeking for Him instead of starkly giving up. I will pray for you. And with that, Welcome to the Christian Forums! :)

    Come on in and get a shot of Spiritual Geritol straight from the Holy Spirit, welcome !

    We are seeing more and more of this as we get deeper into this timeline we are in. And Satan is all over weak faith, he can toss all sorts of false projections at you while you waver. Get strong in Christ, draw nearer to Him and He will draw nearer to you, and notice that order of events, you go first !

    John Kirkby, founder of Christians Against Poverty (CAP), wrote in his testimonial book titled “Nevertheless” that, “Faith is a paradox. Faith sees the invisible, knows the unknowable, hears the inaudible, touches the intangible. It fights in chains and rests in conflict.”

    Faith is to believe what you do not see, and the reward of faith is to see that which you believe. Beyond the fog lies clarity. Above all else, our highest calling and deepest joy is to make the Will of God our home.

    Not My Will…

    Welcome ESK! Well, that is a terrible feeling I'm sure but also shows why we cannot rely upon our feelings! They lie to us. Belief upon God's promises and that He keeps His promises is what sustains all believers. Talk back to those wrong feelings, and tell yourself just what God says about believing in Him.

    Hell. In short, hell.


    A lot of stuff has hit me lately.

    Ex is pregnant with someone I don't approve of

    Mothers suicide.

    Social anxiety.

    Lack of stature.

    Alcoholism.

    Lack of friends.


    A lot of that stuff I can deal with, but there are so many people walking around bound for - what I was raised to believe, hell - is a reality for so many billions of people.


    It's been bothering me more lately.

    First things first, start dealing with the alcoholism then you will be able to start to sort out the rest of your issues. Any AA meetings in your area?

    Hi
    Ok. Now is when you need the strength and peace only God can provide. Pray quietly. He will step in and help. You are going through a terrible storm and you need real help. This is when Jesus Christ is truly your best help.
    I know what it is like to face your life crumbling. I also know the incredible effect of earnest humble open prayer on my knees begging God to help. The amazement as things begin happening and people become placed right where you need them. Miracles occur as you send out distress signals to Jesus. He will not ignore you. You and i are His sheep. He loves you.
    So my dear put yourself and the whole situation in His hands. Our God is capable, our God brings life where there was only death and destruction.
    Do not listen to the whispering voice of the enemy. He will tell you to panic and give up. Listen to Jesus, ask Him to give you His Peace while He helps. Then relax and have faith. Bad things happen in this world but you WILL cope.
    Xx

    Wow! Fantastic. Stay sober and in control. This chapter in your life can be the making of you. Show those around you that you are going to get through it all and be stronger for it. You already are by resisting alcohol which never helps and only destroys.

    Hi
    Others may be bound for hell but you can choose not to go with them. Make that choice. Choose prayer with positive action. You can do this and by your example inspire others to the path to heaven not hell.

    Hi ESK, welcome to CF. Sorry to see that you are suffering so much right now. Well done on eleven months sober, that's awesome. I hope you find some comfort and support here, praying that Jesus Christ reaches right into your life and lifts you up above the misery and suffering :twohearts:

    God did not promise us days without pain, laughter without sorrow, Nor sun without rain. But HE did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.
    Thou Art Royal, Therefore Endure!
