Is my life just a joke?

Member
I'm at my wits end. I have confessed my sins yet I feel like it is just an endless relapse of no peace, no hope of mind, no anything. I repent of my sins and trust in God, yet no change in my life or thoughts happen, I put trust in God and ask Him to heal my mind, too renew it, yet no renewed happens. I submit, yet I am still restless. I don't get it. I really don't..... Am I meant for something greater? I'm starting to think it's all a joke. It never changes. I'm never helped. I'm left in sorrow and unhappiness. No peace of mind.

Praying is always a good thing and Praying With Gods Word is even better, in fact it is what He has told us to do.

See we (you) must renew our (your) mind with His Word.

Start by finding scriptures that speak about your situation and read them out loud and think on them and pray them unto Him with a believing heart.

If all you do is confess your sins and ask Him to fix everything, well not much is going to happen.

There is no Faith (trust) in that. It is faith that pleases Him and He will Honor your faith and His Word.

One more thing.
You are not a Joke nor is your life a joke but you do have an enemy who will constantly be trying to get you to think it is.

Blessings and love in Christ

fast and help others and watch how fast things turn around for you.

Taker a widow out to lunch or do some things for a widow around here house, go spend some time helping a orphan how to read. Serve at you church if its just as a greeter, or a usher. Serving others gets your mind off your own problems.

God bless

Thank you and bless God for working through others to show me the error of my ways. It is selfish of me. I just got done reading a bunch of scripture on faith. And you are right! Their is no trust in me saying what I said. Thanks again.

You may find the peace of Christ when you are serving others in Christ's love as Dave M and this video suggests.

I am surprised that your answer in this is works.

Serving others is something we do as a Christian but it is not our source of peace.
It will only give you a temporary peace or self worth.

Getting Gods Word in you in abundance so it is operating in your life, then you can find peace.

We have to protect our peace and not allow it to be stolen.

Well, it is not about obtaining salvation or proving you are saved when you already are simply for believing in Jesus Christ and that God raised Him from the dead.

Actually, the music video does touch on learning of Him as one way of having His peace, but later on in the video, serving others.. loving others,, helping others is how we know Him in our lives as well in having His peace.

I was not talking about works for salvation. But trusting Him in putting your mind on good things, even by serving and helping others with His love, is one of the ways to have His peace.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

I trust Jesus Christ to help me with my mind when it is assaulted with garbage to provoke or to tempt or to gross me out by helping me think about something else that is good. It is a daily thing and not a one time hey we are done with it when we will not be done with running that race until He brings us Home.

Psalm 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

2 Corinthians 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds, 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

So our obedience is fulfilled when we believe Him to help us cast them down to help us think on good things rather than thinking it is mind over matter as in carnal in casting it down.

Hebrews 12:1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Welcome to the community and I'm glad you shared this. This is all too relatable and understandable for us Christians. You see, God sees the whole picture of our lives and we don't. We are finite, He is infinite in wisdom and power.

To start off with a few important things...

Sanctification. It is a lifelong process of becoming like Jesus. Keep this in mind, alongside God's grace and patience. You need to accept and believe truth: God loves you unconditionally, sanctification is a lifetime process and God's Word (Bible) is your power to transform your mind and heart alongside the Holy Spirit's works.

Justification and Sanctification

I too struggle many days with negative thinking and such, it affects my happiness and joy throughout the day. Even this past weekend was a miserable one for me. I look back and remind myself it's because I'm not believing in the truth of His Word.

The first thing Satan did in the Garden of Eden was attack Adam & Eve's identity in God. That's what he'll do with us too. If you don't know your own identity, you'll be lost and confused.

You know for many years I wrestled with the same types of thoughts and feelings your dealing with but until I got a real glimpse of the suffering my Savior bore because of my sin, since then I have been amazed by the grace of Jesus Christ and it is my hearts desire to never grieve the Spirit of God but to walk worthy of His calling.
Ask Jesus to keep the view of Calvary fresh in your mind.

My response to this post maybe a bit late but maybe this can help.

When i first join Bible study i dont really understand the scripture, until someone in the group needs to explain it to me. The best part of it is when each one in the group share there personal experience and mistakes or personal struggles.
And everyone help one another to encourage that person.

I was just saying that joining a community of believers in your local church can really do a big help, not just in our spiritual growth, but growing together to be a better person.

Whatever you ask for ask it with 100%faith that it will be granted to you . Trust me god watches over us and hears us he wouldn't hold back to help if you truly ask for it

May I begin by saying although we may feel like our life is a joke, no ones life is a joke! Each one of us is created in the very image of God and each of us has a divine purpose.
I can understand your feelings like your life is without purpose or meaning. For many years I was on the hamster wheel of confessing my sin and sinning, just to confess my sin once again. Finally I asked God to reveal to me why I continued in sin. He revealed to me that most saved believer who desire sin over living as a child who honors His heavenly Father spend little to no time in the Word of God, the Bible. Psalm 119: 11 teaches us to hide his Word, not only in our head, but in our hearts. When we absorb the Word of God daily then the Holy Spirit who lives in us uses that same Word to change us from the inside out. The Word places our focus on Jesus Christ and His way and draws our minds away from pleasures that spiritually deceive and destroy us.
When I began to read God's Word the Spirit within me changed my life.
