I just need answers

by lizzy

Im trying to understand my feelings. I feel like i have alot of hate and anger deep inside me. I pray to God and talk out my problems but it never goes away. Its like a plague or something. I feel like my heart is being weighted down ,and brick are laying on my back. I'm so angry.

And on top of that i want a boyfriend,but i seem like nothing work out for me. And i pray to God that maybe i could have one but im scared because im afraid that im gonna get a horrible like i did last time when i prayed for one,and that was four years ago and it had effected me greatly. Then the people i like dont like me or the like my friends(i hate that) or the ones that like me i never like. I dont understand why cant i be satisfied. I feel so horrible. I feel miserable. I feel useless. I just feel lonely. I understand why i he might not want me to have a boyfriend, but why do i feel so empty & hallow inside. I just feel like im im being torn apart and then i start feeling selfish because i think i should be happy that i have a family and friends,but i feel so alone. I just feel so alone. I'm so logical i try to figure it out but i cant, and it driving me made.

Im suffering from jealousy, it feels like a disease, i never used to be really jealous but i started hanging out with a new person with a jealousy problem and it like i caught it. And now im jealous of that person. I'm angry at myself for letting me get jealous. The boy i like,i really liked him, was looking at her and and said that she was more his type cause i was to tall. and yes i know except i shouldnt be bothered with someone who cant accept that,but the relationshp escalated to a place i shouldnt have been,when my friend showed no interest in him. And he's not even a boyfriend, and i feel so jealous, cause i hate not feeling good enough. I dont even want this person anymore, but it eats me up inside, and i feel like im being self righteous cause i think im smarter than she is,prettier,funnier,i can sing better and i dont know why i feel the way i do sometimes.



I'm trying to find answers, for what my problem is. I'm angry,jealous,i feel rejected,I feel alone, and i cant feel God. I pray and pray but i feel like hes listening but i must be dong something wrong cause i cant hear his voice for guidance. I'm getting bent ouf of shape. I'm trying to figure out whats wrong with me spiritually? I feel like my heart has been broken for years and it has so many people have hurt me and i just want to be at peace but i cant because it haunts me.

I'm so negative at time. And im getting sick of praying the same prayers, and crying every night. Is God listening?

Thanks for sharing

Lizzy,
Thanks for sharing what's been going on in your life right now. I will admit that I don't have any "quick and easy" answers for you. But, I too have been in a place before where I didn't feel like my prayers were going anywhere and felt like I was empty. I would really recommend you watch my "Broken Cup" story here to hear more about what God did in my life:

Broken Cup Story

I also want to let you know that I prayed for you today. "What is impossible with men, is possible with God." Luke 18:27

I also recommend that you download my book "Mirror Mirror." You can get it for free by signing up for my newsletter.


Fixing our eyes on Jesus,

Hi Lizzy,

From your sharing, I noticed there are too many focus on "I".You have been looking inward to search for the answers to your problems. The Bible mentioned in Isaiah 64:6 - But we are like an unclean thing and all our righteousness are like filthy rags....
The more we look at ourselves, the more miserable we will be for in ourselves, there is nothing good to behold. JESUS IS THE ANSWER. The key to victory over sin, over self-condemnation lies in focusing on Jesus. The more you focus on how much God loves you, the more you end up falling in love with God and with one another.
As new creation in Christ(if you have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior), you are living under the new covenant, that is you can come into God's Presence boldly expecting Him to hear and answer your prayers. And you will receive all His blessings because Jesus took all the punishment for your sins and gave you His position of favour with the Father. God loves you and God's love provided you with a Saviour. God's love put all your sins and failures and short-coming upon His Son. Jesus became laible for you. So today God is not against you. God is for you. God is on your side because of what Jesus did.Open your heart today and ask Jesus to fill you up with His Agape Love. I have been there and are blessed. So can you Lizzy.

Psalms 34:5 - They looked to Him(Jesus) and were radiant. And their faces were not ashamed.

Motives
by: Anonymous

James 4:3
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

I agree that you are really focused on yourself right now. I have found in my personal studies that the greatest joys come from putting others first. Why do you want a boyfriend? Will that help you serve God? Will that honor God in any way? Instead of putting yourself first, try putting God first. You really will be happier, after all, he knows your needs better then you do. He wants you to be happy, but the happieness he wants for you is real genuine happieness not passing fancys. I challenge you to listen to him, dig into his word, and find true joy!

Job 8:21
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.

Psalm 16:11
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

God still loves you
by: Sarah

Dear Lizzy,

I just want to encourage you. You're not alone! Because I too, and I believe everyone, in a way or other, has been through what you have described.

Sometimes it's not easy to hear from God. We seem to seek Him but He does not seem to respond. But sometimes it's because we aren't listening correctly. Continue to seek Him, continue to ask Him for the answers and for guidance. He promises wisdom to all who ask. As long as you keep seeking Him, I am confident you will find Him and you will find the answers you are seeking. You just have to persevere in times that are difficult.

Sometimes God allows us to go through such things in order to teach us to keep seeking Him, to bring us closer to Him. Many times we are frustrated with ourselves because we try to be in control of our situations and want to understand everything that goes on around us and in us. But we just aren't created to be in control. And it is when we release it and surrender our lives to God, and cry out to Him on our knees in total surrender, that God shows up and gives us the peace we desire deep inside.

You want to find answers? Keep seeking God, keep reading His Word - the Bible. It has all the answers to life. You must be diligent to read and to learn from God, then He will bless you. He is with you. Even when you can't feel it, believe it. Because it is His promise to us.

And you know the wonderful part? No matter how horrible you feel about yourself, God tells us that he still loves us. He does not look at our sin any longer because Jesus came to die for our sins. When we confess our sins, He forgives us.

If there are people or things around you that pull you away from God, try to stay away from them. Because at a time like this, you need to be very close to God. You must make Him your first priority in life.

Keep in there girl! God will not fail you. I will pray for you.

In Christ,
Sarah

One more thing
by: Sarah

Dear Lizzy,

One more thing I want to add. I read this recently. All those negative things you are thinking about yourself? It's not from God! Don't be deceived by the devil. Learn to identify his voice, all the things that make you feel bad and worthless, not worthy of God, telling you that you are lousy and a failure... that's all not from God.

Philippians 4:7-9 (New International Version)

7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.


You have to think about God more frequently, think about His goodness, His grace, His creation, His love, think about whatever is noble, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.

Don't listen to the lies of the devil. Because God says that you are His wonderful creation. He will give you strength when you need it. Just continue to lean on Him and trust that He will deliver you from your situation and problems.

In Christ,
Sarah
