We all have bad days. Today is one of those days for me. Nothing seems to line up for me. I know we all have bad days like this. But sometimes I wish a person could spend one day in my shoes. If they did and said, “Wow, you have a beautiful life but you have a lot of burdens to carry” that would alleviate many of my troubles. I have the ability to put one foot in front of the other but my biggest burden is feeling alone and misunderstood.
I am a worry wort. I worry about the weather, heights, spiders and changes in my routine. But sometimes I don’t always take ownership of these negative emotions. I just want to know my feels are valid and not usual.
Sometimes when I go on the freeway I worry about getting in a car accident and I don’t feel completely comfortable until I am back on the streets again. I have never been in a car wreck or even a feeder-bender before but I have the anxiety of someone who has experienced that before. Is this normal? I wonder.
Here is another example, I am pretty healthy but I worry about getting Cancer and Cancer doesn’t even really run in my family. But sometimes when I don’t eat like I should or exercise I worry about this. Is this normal? I wonder.
The only main health issues I have had is Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Someone with this condition worries about everything all the time. It’s a burden in itself.
I can’t seem to let go of my past mistakes, relational difficulties, verbal abuse I have experienced, and insecurities.
I write this to comfort others in the same boat. If you ever had a really bad day (I know we all have! ;)), feel like we always have to be strong and perfect at times or suffer from any form of anxiety or depression, please know that you aren’t alone.
Jesus was in the desert for 40 days and was even tempted by the devil. I bet He felt sad and afraid!
Here is a prayer for you:
I cancel any assignment of the enemy of your life now in Jesus’s name. I ask the host of angels to guard and protect you from the hurls of the enemy now.
Fill the person reading this now with hope. Take away the spirit of confusion and restlessness over their life now. Bring your beautiful sense of clarity and purpose back into their lives.
Remind them how they are either a prince or princess of the Most High God. And this Being doesn’t make mistakes. But makes wonderful discoveries and desires in seeking out for you. We are definitely the apple of His Eye.
In Jesus’s Name. Amen.
I hope this touched you. Please feel free to let me know your thoughts.
