    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Seem to be in a valley

Discussion in 'Introduction' started by EagercoG, Nov 30, 2012.

  1. It seems everywhere I look...I'm going to have to climb. Feeling overwhelmed on where to start. Feeling alone although I know I can't be. Feel like I need to be in a better spot than I am. With all of the beautiful, awesome gifts God gives us I don't understand why I can't move. Needing a nudge of inspiration. Which usually I get from the bible. Not sure what's going on.
  2. "God doesnt require us to succeed, he only requires that you try!"

    Know that you are a child of God ad the devil wants you! Stay positive! Don't give up or get discouraged... your on the right track!

    I am a minister that married a suday school teacher that became my prayer partner and ministers partner and in 6 years she walked fly out,,lost in her own desires she took very thing including my faith and joy...For a seAson I was so surprised how I could be blown off the mountain top so easy... The. CLimb has been a long one yes ! But if I've learned nothing else it's this Gods voice echoes off the valley walls loud and clear and if you listen close it will lead you out..for 15 yrs ive been married to an angel and let me tell you my quiver is full of joy abounding..hope this helps....God is still in you're reach but you must be on you're knees to reach high enough.

  4. Welcome to the forum.

    I know that place well,all I could do is look around for some climbing gear.
    Don't worry that cliff is the rock and Jesus is the way to climb it.
    I know I have come to the point where I refuse to move without inspiration so I personally think you are seeing clearly.
    I was just posting on another thread that the first thing in the bible that was "not good" was that the man should be alone.

    Sometimes it seems as if the old tools just don't get the job done anymore when the truth could be that our maturity in Christ causes new challenges that only the Holy Spirit can equip us to overcome.
    "Alone" is the biggest baddest enemy( besides my carnal mind which tells me I am alone) I have encountered in my journeys so I am busy building rock climbing tools by listening to the spirit of the word.Gods not done showing you his awesome and wonderful glory so maybe he is drawing you higher toward a better scenic outlook.

    Godspeed your nudge!
  5. I am so thankful to be on here :) Thank you for your encouragement. Feels like Jesus is blowing on the embers. He is so faithful !
  6. We truly have such wonderful brothers and sisters here on this site!! Upon careful thought and prayer upon your words,I am led to speak to us all on this sister EagercoG. Feeling and emotion have a purpose in our life!But not in the trust realm of Jesus.Faith is not based upon our feeling or emotion,because those feeling tend to lead us to what we can see.( 2 cor 4:16-18!!) I used to think this way to sis!! LOL If I was having a bad day,i would say out loud, I am sure tomorrow will be no better,I was speaking from my feeling and emotion on the current day of course!And do you know what?? Tomorrow was as i believed it would be!! LOL

    Coming out from the faith movement myself,i first learned how to claim it and have it mode.LOL This for a while worked out pretty good! But one day i claimed something and it did not happen! Hey God!! Your word says ask and believe,and you shall have!!So what are you doing here??? lol Many pray to our Lord Jesus always to ask him for something,never staying thankful in him for what we already have! But Lord!! I have to have a reason to become thankful don't I? My blood was not enough for you to stay thankful for was my reply! Do you think I meet the needs of my children because they ask me?Or do I meet those needs because i know they love me,even as i have always loved you? Staying thankful!

    Staying thankful is not based upon emotion or feeling,staying thankful is based upon what you believe!! And from what you truly do believe,you indeed act upon that! For the actions of the believer follow after that which they truly do believe.HUMM!! You believe i love you,and you are right in believing this,but how about your actions from this belief? Where is your thanksgiving to me daily mark! Why do I not see this?? So you wonder why you have no peace?When my word tells you how to always keep my peace in you!!( phil 4:6-9!!)verse 8 mark!! verse 8!!! To dwell upon these things,moves your feeling and emotions aside, for are these not the very things hoped for? the evidence of things not yet seen?( hebrews 11:1) Oh the evidence is there!!

    You just have to act upon them is all!! LOL I>C> LORD NOW!!! In this lesson I learned sis,I stay thankful in all things now.I can do this because Jesus in me is larger then that which looks to make me feel down, and depressed! Holy Spirit has been given to us for a specific purpose,to help!But we must allow him to help us! And how do we do this?By believing in his word over our feeling and emotion. Some say the devil is behind all of this.LOL Not always sis, I have found our flesh can sure talk to us to!! LOL( gal 5:19-26) In order to become a fellow partaker of the Gospel we must speak from it!

    This does require discipline on our part of course!( 1 cor 9:23-27!!) Our flesh does not rule us any longer with its emotion and feeling!! WE RULE IT!! Through our Jesus in us!! And by his very Word he gave us to rule over it with! But we have to act upon those words sis!! And we find out just what we do believe by our action associated with our claim of faith! Jesus knows already!! But the devil does not,nor do we for sure until we act! By doing this we mature,we grow in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus, and his great love he has for each of us. So we have to climb??? LOl Or do we use the wings God provided for us to fly over them through him!!( isaiah 40:28-31!!) and 2 peter 1:3-11!!!!!!)

    But we cannot fly unless we flap!!LOL And Jesus has already given his children the wings to flap with! So sister!! Like Holy Spirit told me to do, start flapping those wings he gave us!! I have looked to make light, a heavy burden many carry,because sister we have no reason to carry such a burden,because we give those to our Jesus!( Matt 11:28-30,and 1 peter 5:7) Do you notice something so important here sis? Not my words!! But God's own words he gave us to speak and to act upon? By doing both,we stay free,and from this wonderful freedom we have in and through our Jesus,we look to show others jesus in us,so that they to may become free to fly!! For the mountain of God is not a place to climb to,but rather to fly to! Much faster then the climb!! LOL But it takes more time,because our wings much grow through his Word,and by our faith in those words! But after you get the hang of it!! LOL It sure is fun to flap!! We are so blessed to have so many wonderful brothers and sister here!! I stay thankful!! amen!
  7. 1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. So true Brighthouse! We went over this today at church. I did a study a few weeks ago about when exactly we get this power. I found it in Luke although its many places. After Jesus was tempted by the devil and He fought using the Word alone. Luke 4:14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

    This is so important and for some reason I couldn't accept the whole revelation. I was prophesied over today. And the message was "Angel you are in a pool of shallow water but yet you are drowning. This place sucks. God has given you wisdom and He has given you anointing, but every time you receive it, you duck to the other side because you have to walk away from the ways you are used to." "Stop trying to recruit an army the Lord is not with because you will fail" 2 chronicles 25:7 But there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with thee; for the Lord is not with Israel, to wit, with all the children of Ephraim.

    8 But if thou wilt go, do it; be strong for the battle: God shall make thee fall before the enemy: for God hath power to help, and to cast down.

    Thank God for His intercession. I was yokin up with people I should not be. Hoping to help them when all I have to do is have a relationship with Jesus, believe on Him, read His Word and He will minister through me. He will draw them in. He not I. Very humbling for sure. I get so eager lol hence EagercoG. That I completely miss the point sometimes. But He is faithful in drawing me back to the road that is narrow.

    Thank you for the post Brighthouse very well said.
