In Need Of Scripture

It’s been another one of those days and they seem to be getter ever worse as each one passes.  Broken sleep and so much work to do isn’t helping, I really feel so worn out, physically, mentally and more importantly emotionally.

Yesterday evening I just couldn’t engage in our Connect Group meeting, it was okay at first, but then as the evening passed and our discussions on distractions in our lives began, the further I descended into my own head once again, I began to cry and just stare out blankly, I think I heard most of what was said, but I don’t really remember, I just sat on the edge of tears most of the night, fighting them, but at times not very successfully.  My friends prayed for me and comforted me, but this is hard, so hard and I just can’t snap out of it.

That seems to be the story of my existence at the moment, everything feels so empty.  I have been searching for Bible verses that help and found a few that I seem to be able to grip onto.

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.  Deuteronomy 31:8

Please feel free to offer any scripture that you think may help, I would really appreciate it.

LOST IN THE WORLD by GREEN RIVER ORDINANCE
Summer rain falling all around you
Washing all the doubts to the bone
In the madness this world, it has created
Don’t forget you are beautiful

IF YOU GET LOST IN THE WORLD, LOST IN THE WORLD
I’LL BE THERE TO FIND YOU
GIVE YOUR HEART AND YOUR SOUL, HEART AND SOUL
FIGHTING TO REMIND YOU
IF YOU GET LOST IN THE WORLD, LOST IN THE WORLD
I’LL BE THERE TO FIND YOU
JUST KNOW I BLEED LIKE YOU, I BLEED LIKE YOU

Someday, somewhere there’ll be a silver lining
Break through wars you’re fighting here
We both know there’s no easy way around
Do you hear my words ringing out?

There’s no higher mountain I would climb
To rid you of the fears that rule your mind
There’s no higher mountain I would climb
For you to see that I am on your side

    I understand that feeling so well. Praying the scriptures leftnfree mentioned will be helpful. It’s so easy for someone else to throw out advice, but it’s so hard to actually provide what is needed. I will pray for you right now.

    When I need comfort and strength from God’s word I open Psalms and read – it is a beautiful book. God bless you.

    Praying for you!! 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
    New American Standard Bible (NASB)
    9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
