It seems like we have been hit with everything.  While our trials and tribulations that my household is going through may very well be normal everyday life, things seem to be a bit heavier these days.  the feelings of defeat and uselessness seem to lurk around my thoughts and heart sometimes.

So how do you conquer these awful feelings?  First, you need to understand that these feelings of defeat and uselessness are not of God.  When God formed us in our mother’s womb, He did not create us to be defenseless and useless.  So when you feel these negative feelings you must understand that it is just the adversary trying to break you down.  The adversary’s mission is to stop you from fulfilling your anointed purpose of which God has bestowed on you because the adversary knows how strong you really are.  Once you realize that this feeling of defeat or whatever negative feeling you feel is not of our Almighty Father, you pray just as I did.

For the first time in my life I physically got on my knees and prayed!  There’s something about physically getting to your knees and praying.  As far as what that something is, I couldn’t tell you.  All I can tell you is I felt something I have never felt before.  The minute my knees hit the floor, and I began praying, the tears flowed from my eyes like crazy!

By the end of my heart felt prayer, the weight was taken off my shoulders.  The weight along with the feelings of defeat and uselessness were gone.  My issues are still there but, I’m able to see with more clarity than before.  There’s a peace within me now.

Prayer may not always solve your problems in the blink of an eye but, it will always bring you peace.  That peace is knowing that God is already taking care of it.  Faith.  Cast that net and allow God to do His thing and He will do things that are beyond our wildest imagination and comprehension.

Philippians 4:6

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition(definite requests) with thanksgiving and continue to make your wants known to God
