Prayer: 02-02-09

God,

I’m really fighting discouragement right now. This economic situation is so difficult. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to find work… it seems like every avenue I go down dead ends. I struggle with feeling inadequate and like a failure. I feel incapable of changing my situation.

Honestly, God, I’m just frustrated with You. I don’t doubt You, but it does seem like You’re not doing anything. Thank you for being so unpredictable. Thank you for frustrating me. I know You have purpose behind this, and the outcome from all of this is just what I need to accomplish the tasks You have set before me and for Contrast.

Even though I feel beaten, bruised, and worn, You are still my Shield and my Refuge and my Strength. Like Isaac had to trust Abraham FULLY while laying on the altar, I am at Your mercy and trust You beyond my understanding. I know You love me and want the BEST for me and for Contrast. Help my faith, God.

  1. This is the exact prayer and heart that I currently have. I could have written this myself. You are not alone brother.

    “So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me. Nevertheless we must run aground on some island.” -Acts 27:25-26

    We just have to wait for the storm to be over so we can leave the island.
