“How can I pray without ceasing, like Paul says?” asked a She Blossoms reader on 5 Ways to Talk to God When You Can’t Pray. “I’m a single mom and I have to go to work, walk the dog, feed my kids and do the housework. How is it possible to keep praying constantly when you have real responsibilities?”
You had faith in Jesus, but how do you love God when He lets you down? Maybe you hoped a relationship wouldn’t lead to divorce, a loved one wouldn’t die, a home wouldn’t be lost, or a dream wouldn’t be shattered forever. But you lost something you love, and you’re disappointed in God.
Maybe you want to be honest and “fess up” (confess) something you did yesterday or years ago. Maybe you want to come clean about your past because you didn’t just tell a lie, you’re actually living a lie.
Moving on after you lose someone you love isn’t about “getting over it.” You’ll don’t just get over it and you’ll never be the same. But, you will get through it. And you might even learn how to move on in ways that weave your loved one into your day.
Backsliding, wandering, sinning — whatever you call it, you haven’t been walking with God. After falling away from God, how do you return? How do you face your Heavenly Father after being away so long? What can you say to make Him love you again?
Trusting God is easy when life is good and your loved ones are within reach! But how do you trust God when you lose someone you love? How do you have faith in a God who lets your daughter die, your husband leave, your sister suffer, your friend abused?
It’s a struggle for both Christians and unbelievers: How do you stop doing what you don’t want to do? Maybe you’re like me, and you want to learn how to stop worrying about what people think. Maybe you’re like my friend Sam, and you want to learn how to stop believing lies about yourself.
