Do you ever feel like your life is collapsing?

I have this feeling now. I don't have a job and nothing works in my life. I prayed a lot and I feel like God abandoned me. I don't know what to do. I can't enjoy anything. I have my parents, my cats and therapists. I am taking medication, but I am having too many health problems and this lack of money and energy makes me feel useless. I hope I can overcome this. Do you ever feel like that?

Hello, I am sorry for what you are feeling right now but, Dont ever think that God abandoned you. I once felt that but everything is just a test if you will still be having faith on him. Just surrender everything to him. I may not old enough but I can say I have experienced those problems and when I do, I just pray and surrendering my problems and yea. its like just gone. I will share this very recent test I have gone. (its a assessment in our school its like a test but physical test) we like roleplayed being costumer service and yea I can say that is hard, but before the day of assessment I did pray and say. Lord pls help me in this incoming test I am surrendering everything to you, amen. It is a very short prayer it did not even last 30seconds. its just yea he helped me. and when I am in there where I supposed to be scared. I feel confident that I will pass it. Good news I did passed the assessment. Sorry for my long response LOL. but yea pls dont lose faith in God

Yes, I have felt like that many times over the years, and I wouldn't wish those feelings on anyone. I am so sorry you have to carry these burdens as well. I don't know how long you have been on your current medication, but you may need a change like I just needed from my doctor. You are not alone with your despair, and if despair is the wrong word, I apologize. Just from what you describe it sounds close to how I have felt, and despair is what I felt at the time.

Yes, despair is the right word. I changed my medication often in the past and I can't tolerate them.

I have felt like that many times in my life. One day I just stopped trying to hold on to what obviously needs to go and allowed God to work His plan with me. Now everything makes sense and I am at Peace.

@dya80dya Hard work and a strong spirit. I had to face a lot of fears and a lot of truths about myself and change my behaviors. I had to realize that 'I' and I alone created my problems. Stop blaming others, detached from toxic relationships and people. I had to drop a lot of so called friends and stop trying to hold on to the ones who wanted to let me go. I put all of my faith in God and gave Him full rein of my life. I spent 7 yrs in a homeless situation where I was able to practice meditation and being non judgemental of the people I was destined to commune with. In other words...serving the Lords favor. Now that I am liberated from my old self, I am at peace, regret nothing and enjoy a happy, healthy existence. There are no shortcuts.

It's normal to feel that God has abandoned you when things are just not going as you'd hope it would be. It's good that you have your parents, your cats and your therapist. You are not useless. You are making a discussion in mylot and earning a few cents from it.

It's true. At least I am earning something. I think I won't have my cats for long.

Yes, life is challenging but I like to focus on the positives. It helps me to go on! When I look at a rose bush, it's not the thorns that I focus on but focus on the beauty of the roses. All the best!

Have you heard of the law of attraction and the law of assumption? I think this might help you.
