Hi, found ur site on google. Struggling with anxiety, sleep problems. My husband went home to Our Lord 12 days ago. Unexpected, we were believing for healing. Nights are very difficult. Family staying at night. Just trying to cope, minute by minute at times. Look forward to your email. In Jesus name, Jackie

Otori–When you draw near to God, he draws near to you. He is the ultimate advisor, and we are praying that he reveals his plan clearly to you and guides your steps!

Dear Jackie, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband and the trials you are facing right now. Please know that we are praying for you. There’s also a prayer request on the GoingByFaith facebook page to gather more prayer support. My dear sister, hold on to the Lord–he will never let you fall from his hand.

Remember the Book of Psalms… God’s word is comfort.

I’m having so much trouble with all of the paranoia and stress. I’ve been going to the Lord and I have been trying to make it better. I’ve been more at peace with myself even with the scary things going on in the world. I know that’s the Lord’s power over me, but I can’t help sometimes all of my feelings overcoming me sometimes. I feel the weight of everything crashing down on me. I can’t help it. Heck, I’m crying as I’m writing this.

I heard the news about those 7 Christians killed in Egypt, and I literally broke down. My heart broke almost literally for them. I know the year 2013 is coming up, but I can’t help this bad feeling that I’m getting that I can’t shake off. Is that supposed to be a sign? Am I going crazy with this? PLEASE! i NEED HELP!

Hi Mallory… I know that feeling and felt it when I came across a news story one day about a murder of a child that happened years ago. Wrote about it right here: http://goingbyfaith.com/when-it-hurts-so-bad-and-we-dont-know-what-to-do/
The world is dark! We have to know that and can’t be deceived into thinking otherwise. I mean, we know that evil exists in this world, and we cannot underestimate it. But Jesus has already conquered evil, and so while we’re in the world, we’re not of it. We will see and hear of many dark things here, but we are living for something greater, and that is eternal life. What we do here matters, and how we respond. But even when evil threatens to steal our joy, we must not linger there, it’s dangerous and not of God. Personally, I wouldn’t read it as a sign– it’s just evil trying to take your eyes off the cross.

Abioye — the best prayer for peace ever comes right from the mouth of Jesus! “I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27)

Wanda — Thanks for reaching out! These are God’s words here, straight from the bible :) Don’t get discouraged because God had plans for your life. He LOVES His children. He has given us that promise. You are in our prayers sister. Please reach out any time for prayer! JenGoingByFaith at gmail.com.

Jen November 22, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Before I ever read the bible, I didn’t know God’s word. I didn’t know the promises God gives to us. And when you pray to know God and to know God’s word, WOW, the comfort and peace that only He can provides floods your life.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5)

When you know God’s word, you can STAND on God’s word. You can trust God’s word. God is God!!

patience November 25, 2013 at 6:55 am

I really don’t know how to start, its the first time for me to be on this site. I am so weak and heart broken. Sometimes we are so troubled that we loose the good and only see the bad. I am married for 17years with three kids. I am a working mom and sole breadwinner at this stage. I have prayed so many times for my husband to find a job. Iam loosing faith along with my assets that I have to sold to make ants meat. I need someone to help me.
