prayer request

Just got a request for prayer or advice or anything I guess.

To be honest I am cracking under the pressure. I have reached the end of my ropes in coping.

Too much to do at work, home etc etc etc. I am so tired of being strong and coping all the time. I am so tired of trying and failing (at least failing to my standards that I put on myself).

I so much just want to live a normal life without all this hectic stuff going on, without there being too little hours in the day. I am so tired of multi-tasking and being 5 people at the same time. I have realised that I cant no-more. I have been and still are crying because I give up. I surrender this fight, I just cant no-more.

Yes I am trying my best to get some alone time with my Heavenly Father, not that I get enough. I know that everyone will say trust in God, He will pull you through. Yes that I know too and I believe it. But have you ever came in your life that those promises just aint enough at the moment.

Well this person sitting here is so tired of being emotionally, mentally and in all ways strong, and I really need someone else to be strong for me now and yes I know God is holding my hand and carrying me through this. Yes I am asking Him in prayer to keep giving me strength and that I need more of Him. It is just so hard when I need support so badly from the people around me, yet they need even more support so they are unable to give me the support I need. So I cant blame them at all.

If I can just add an extra 3 hours to my day then it will be great and all things will be done and I will even have time left for myself.

I dont need to hear that I must cut on some stuff and leave it for another time. I have already done that and more I cant cut.

I am normally not a person that is willing to admit that I cant cope with things anymore. That I cant carry the workload anymore cause that is not how I was brought up.

Just every second that I get I am trying to rest in my Father's arms. So yes I am trying that too.

The hardest thing for me is to NOT take control of my life again. The hardest thing was to let God take control of my life and me stop trying to control it.

Well this is the first time that I feel out of control. I need to be in control of my life. When I had control, I did it my way and not God's way, so I cant take back control. I know also that I need to face this storms that I am in. I also know God wont let me go through things that is TOO big for me. Just it is so hard to trust if you feel so lost.

Father God I bring you my sister Estelle in this very serious moment and ask you to pick her up and draw her near to You, please hold her dearly in Your comforting arms and bless her abundantly with Your loving Spirit Jesus I pray for Your peace and Your guidance, Your patience and Your wisdom to help her see along her path daily, to encourage her with Your word daily and show her the way to go Amen :love:
Lord please help my sister; the flood has gone up over her head. You have allowed this for your purposes in Christ to bring us and her to your throne to recieve life hidden there that He might be the fullness that fills all in all. Quiet our hearts where we cannot, dispence that from Christ's great treasure that will minister comfort and hope, peace and joy even in this time of sore trial. Put our tears in your bottle and remember us. Restore to us the incomparable joy that is had in the pressence of our redeemer: flood the eyes of our hearts with light, that we might know the hope of our calling, the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints, and the surpassing greatness of Your power toward us who believe, in accordance with the working of Your mighty power that raised Christ from the dead, and us in Him sitting us at your right hand. Forgive us our tresspasses and treat with us for the overflowing of your mercy in Christ that brings honor and glory to His name in which we pray. Amen.

Bless you sister you have been a blessing to me. DGB
Matthew 11:28-30
"Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. *Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. *For my yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light."

Sister, ask God what He has desired of you and do it. It sounds like you have let others make demands on you and your time. God made the day 24 hours long and He said it is good. Some times we think that certain things are urgent and important, but afterwards we can see that they didn't really matter that much.

You are already of great value to Father, not because of what you have or can accomplish but rather just who He created you to be. Martha worried about things that were needful but Mary chose what was best. Focus on what Jesus gives you to do and those that truely love you will understand and give you some room, help, rest or whatever. Remember you are more than His possession, you are the apple of His eye.
Dear sister,
I have been through many storms my self and can understand how you feel right now. I felt like i was standing in the middle of a hurricane with no achor or no shelter but We do have an anchor. Jesus is our anchor! even though the storm might seem its not going to pass it will. keep your eyes on him! His word says he will never leave nor forsaken you and he wont. We are the ones who usually let go of that anchor so to speak and wanna give up.
I can tell you this much though when I went through the worst of my storms and it was a monster after it finally passed I looked back and seen just how much I grew. Storms and trials will come but we grow from them. I think we grow to be able to overcome the next and to help witness to those who will go through the same of storms. but remember this Peter took his eyes off Jesus and began to sink, he looked at the storm and waves and not the very anchor that would sustain him. So keep your eyes on him and hang on He will be your strength and he will bring you through.
I will keep you in my prayers and I want you to know you can pm me at any time and I will be there if you need someone to encourage or someone to just listen. God bless you sister your sister in christ forever :love:

2 Cor 4:18
18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
(from The Holy Bible: New International Version.

Heb 13:5-6
because God has said,

"Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you."

6So we say with confidence,

"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
(from The Holy Bible: New International Version.
Josua 1:5 :love:
5 No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

God bless you today :love:
Eagle -

I dont know you but the struggles you face I know very well. It is hard to give control over to the Lord, it is what I face on a daily basis. God never promised that this life would be easy. That yes, we will face struggles/challenges in our daily walk with God. We will have our good days and our bad days. God requires us to surrender our lives/will to Him. It is not a one time deal for us, it is something we need to do on a daily basis. He knew well in advance that we could not do it without Him. I will post more when possible, but in the meantime my friend, I will pray for you and that God will strengthen you through your hardship. Quite possibly, this is a time for you to reflect on your life, it may be what God is using to show you something.
