I’ve asked, I’ve prayed, I’ve begged for a sign that everything is going to be okay. That I’m doing the right thing with my life, that I should continue fighting my addiction, but I have yet to receive that sign. I am starting to feel hopeless, on top of already feeling pathetic and worthless. I’m trying to stay strong, but it’s so difficult. I don’t want to turn away from Him, I know He has my back, but I can’t help but feel like he’s forgotten about me. That I’m lost in the crowd and He’s giving up hope on me. I know that’s not the case, but that’s how I feel.
How do you turn around that hopelessness?
It’s not easy, I can assure you of that. I’m trying to do that as we speak. Relying on God to tell me that I’m on the correct path, that I’m not a lost cause, that I’m making the correct choices. I can’t help but feel hopeless still. I’m not giving up my faith in Him because I know He is there for me. Yet I continue to question it all.
I don’t know what to do. I’ve prayed continuously for help, for guidance, for strength but it’s not working. Or at least that is what it seems like. Deep down, I know that God is working on something spectacular for me, in me, I just have to stop wallowing in self-pity and make a change in my outlook. There has to be a greater purpose for this struggle than I realize.
Any words of wisdom, guidance, encouragement would be greatly appreciated. Drop your favorite bible verse, favorite motivational quote, something, anything please.
