Hi Jeddah, I just read your post and I have to let you know that I too, can relate with how you feel. I love God, since knowing Jesus Christ and believing in Him and making Him my Lord and Savior, I feel that even though I have been very blessed, also in many ways my life has become harder! I have a wonderful husband, and that has been a blessing, and I have three great kids, we never go to sleep hungry, we have all the esentials of life and a roof over our heads. I consider myself blessed. But other than my immediate family, everyone else, friends, family even church families, other Christians, have turned their back on me, on us. Our finances, since we decided to do everything right before God as much as we know, are very, very bad. My husband lost his job, we can’t find work; barely making ends meet and since no doors opens for us no matter how hard we try, I have to confess that there has been many times, particularly lately, that I have wondered where God is and why He’s making us go through this, why we can’t prosper. We see how our “friends” live life to the fullest and how everything seems to go well with them and they are not even a little as committed to obeying and following God as we are. And this, I have to admit, has cause me, particularly, to feel frustrated, envious and even mad at God!!! Now, I don’t know what kind of sins you deal with, but sin is sin regardless, and these sins have made me feel like I’m not saved, so far away from God, I have even told my husband that if God does exist, He’s definately not in me. I’ve been so desperate, so anxious, so miserable and so tired of my life, that I’ve wished death! But somehow, this thought just won’t leave me; and that is that I rather have this faith, believe in God and what He has promised and hold on to those promises, than give up. Jesus said in Mathew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. And when I feel this desperate, I hold on to His words, and something in me wants desperately to believe; and I do, even if I have to reasure my self every day, praying for Him to, no matter what, let me keep this hope. I resist my sins, by surrounding myself with all things of God, I read the Bible, Pray constantly, I look around my house and whatever is not of God I throw it away, clothes that may have a bad message, magazines ,music…ANYTHING that is not of God, is of the devil, so no matter the cost, throw it out. Stick to tv and entertainment that is not nasty, I know is hard, but even family & friends that may make you stumble stay away. Look up videos and movies about Jesus, the more we hang around with Him, the less sin can hang around with us. One thing that has helped me a lot is Christian music, because I know that faith (which I so desperately need and want) comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God! Romans 10:17 And most authentic Christian songs come from Scripture! You are not alone in this my friend, but we need to remain faithful, it will be worth it! God Bless you!

Thanks Mabbel,
You took the words right out of my mouth. I have gone through much of what you and your husband has/and is going through. Yet I too, will hold on the Jesus Christ and all His promises. There were some things that needed to be circumcised from my heart and flesh. By humbling me, the Lord show me pride and self righteousness, I had no idea that those sins was imbedded in me. I thank God always for renewing the right Spirit in me and giving me a clean heart. I press more than ever to do His will. @ Jeddah Cuevas, repent and commit your ways and will to Jesus Christ. He will not cast you out. He loves you to much. Trust Him and not men who don’t live a Holy life. God bless and keep each one of you.

Thank you so much Pastor for the info you shared. Really studying now abour discipleship. Glory to God and God bless you!

I agree with your tip about needing to be an example of discipleship by living your life in a way that a Christ-like person would live. My mom is really good at modeling Christ-like behavior for my siblings and me to take after. I will have to share these discipleship tips with my mom and go over it with her.
