I'll be honest - I've felt frustrated this week. To me, sin is like a big mud pit. You may WANT out of that mud pit, but you feel helpless to get out of it. You need someone to grab a hold of you and PULL you out.
I have sins in my life that I want, and need God's help with. I feel like I've been floundering in the same mud pit of certain sins for so long and I feel like a weak, useless person who can't overcome them on my own. I want to conquer these sins, but I feel like a failure to do so. The problem is, I don't feel God's help and I've been questioning him about that. I can't imagine why he wouldn't want me to overcome these sins and I can't imagine why I don't feel that he's helping me. I guess I just want to know what it is that God wants me to do in order to get out of the mud! As the song says, I want the Lord to "wash me and I will be whiter than snow".
Has anyone else ever asked God for help, but didn't feel like you got an answer or the help you need? If so...please share with me.
I'm not including the Bible Buddies link (because it isn't getting used), I do hope you'll comment anyway. If you had a "mountaintop" kind of week - encourage the rest of us.
If you had a "valley" kind of week, let us pray for you. It was definitely a "valley" kind of week for me in my spiritual life, so I'd appreciate the prayers.
Hope your Sunday is blessed and restful,
