When The Believer Is In Despair

When the pain is not tangible, but yet almost unbearable

When the suffering doesn’t quit,

When the darkness won’t leave,

What do you do?

What do you do?

-When there is no one to talk to,

-When no one will listen,

- When no one understands,

- When there seems to be no one to trust,


So often, even as believers, we find ourselves in despair. No one wants to talk about it - because, after all, we are believers, right? We are suppose to have it all figured out. We are
suppose to have all the answers. We are not suppose to be in a rut, depressed, down in the dumps singing the blues.

What, then, is a believer suppose to do? - when despair grasps the very essence of who we are and forces us to question our faith in God.

Now, as believers, we know the “spiritual” answer. The “spiritual” answer is found in Psalms 121:1, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.” But, there are those days when so many of us don’t feel like walking in the spirit and doing the “spiritual” thing.

There are days when we choose to wallow in defeat,

When we make a conscious effort to shout to our soul “Woe it’s me!” as opposed to shouting unto the Lord with a voice of triumph!

During these temporary lapses in spiritual sanity, it is a tedious challenge to walk away from the fleshly mental agony of defeat and to walk toward the Spirit for wisdom and understanding.
