I need your prayers.
I had a doctors appointment today, and have another one tomorrow. I’m really hoping for a good outcome from the testing at these appointments..
I’m still in a period of dryness, and, while I have been praying, I haven’t had the ability to concentrate very well, and especially having trouble concentrating on spiritual/scripture reading (or any reading past a few lines for that matter).
Some of the lack of concentration could be related to medicines I take, or the mental illness itself. No matter what, I really miss scripture and spiritual reading. I have so many books to read but my concentration is very poor. I am so frustrated.
Lately, I’ve felt like I’m on a neverending down escalator. I’ve been through this before - many times - but not while in a period of spiritual dryness.
Anyway - say a prayer for me. Thank you all!
Lord, give me the courage and strength to follow in Sts. Peter, Andrew, James, and John’s example and give up my life for your will. Jesus, I trust you, help me to trust you more. Jesus, I love you, help me to love you more. <3(via christ-lives-in-us)
