Battling Depression Faith Prayer Reflections of an Ex-Jehovah's Witness Soul Food With the Bread of Life

Praise Report!

Well as some of you know I have been going through a rough season with my family. I have had personal health challenges as well as my son. I am praising God this week for answers to my prayers. As you know I have been telling people that I am angry at the Lord right now and am seeking an encounter to wrestle with him like Jacob. .I told God if he is the same God in the bible that does the impossible…I need help to walk on water in my situation. I need to know he won’t let me drown even if I sink like Peter. So I am a little sappy regarding the Lord. As I am seeking to hear from him on a few thangs lol

If he is not the same God of the bible…I told him that this feels like I am doing this in vain. Many of you encouraged me to tell him just that….So I did …..

Here is what a dear friend said to me just today after I complained that I am not hearing from him

“Yes, but do not test the Lord. He is not a genie and does not grant wishes. He only answers our prayers if it is His will to do so and He feels that it’s in our best interests. Remember that our justice and wisdom are not equal to His. You must, therefore, have strong faith. If he does not answer your prayers, there is a good reason for that. You must still have faith, patience and long-suffering, to endure your tribulations, knowing that He won’t allow you to suffer any more than you can handle”

Boy was that a right word for the right time!

I hear ya Lord lol 🧡🧡🧡 God is okay with us asking Him or even being frustrated with him. But at the end of the day I , am just asked to have faith. HE IS STILL GOD. He will never be late, it would never be more than I can bear and He will answer according to His goodness not according to my shortsightedness regarding HIS will for me.

So my prayer is different today …Help me out where I need more Faith Father. Help me make my will thine will.

Guys thanks for your prayers and your support!🦋🌺🌻🌼🌷🍃🍃

What has God done for you this week?


  1. Amen! Prayer is not a magic wand used in manipulating God to respond to our selfish desires. Prayer helps kill our selfish desires and aligns our heart and desires to His perfect will.
