Suffocating Sadness

by Fay ()

I’m feeling imprisoned ..fighting the blankets of depression this year. My daughter died of Covid, my marriage to an ambivalent Christian reached an intense breaking point, some terrible acts of ostracism have divided my earthly family (and that ostracism includes my remaining daughter), and 8 months of an uncontrollable cough, find me weak spiritually and numb to the very things that would help me most: God, his Spirit and fellowship with my church family. I cry without control and in the most unexpected and inappropriate places and times. My husband and I are getting some good help from a Christian counselor, but I’m absent the feelings of confidence I usually have in God. I will continue to read of His promises in the Bible, pray and wait for the assurance that only He can give. I need your prayers that my Savior will ease the numbness and despair soon. Pray that I will never give up and can truly see Him and know he’s here in all of this.
