Can Anybody Hear Me?

I'm facing a desperate situation right now . . . at least it feels very desperate to me.  I'm trying so hard to cling to God and find His peace but I'm struggling.  There is a burden weighing on my heart and I can't get rid of it.  I know my friends and family care, but they just don't seem to understand how I'm feeling.  It's like I'm screaming "FIRE!!!!" and everyone around me is saying, "Don't worry, it's just a small flame . . . "  I'm not asking anyone to fix this, I just need them to hear me and understand.

O God, listen to my cry!
Hear my prayer!
From the ends of the earth,
I cry to you for help
when my heart is overwhelmed.
Psalm 61:1-2 NLT 

David understood what it felt like to be desperate.  He also knew that the only one who could truly hear and understand his heart was God.  He learned the secret of running to God when his heart was overwhelmed.  

Father God, I feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and desperate right now.  Please help me to lay this burden down at your feet and trust that you can and will work this out for your glory.  I need you today.  Please bring peace to my troubled heart.   In Jesus' name, Amen.

Many blessings,


  1. Dear Lisa,
    I've been there. You have gone to the best place the foot of the cross. I'm praying for you that the "fire" will be put out and you can rest and be at peace.

  2. I'm so sorry you're struggling right now. God is leaning over the balcony of heaven, listening to our every cry. Praying your breakthrough comes soon!

  3. The Lord showed you so that you may go before and pray. He knows you will be obedient in doing this so this is why He is showing YOU! Pray fellow warrior, PRAY!

    Bless your sweet heart!

  4. When God burdens our heart others can't fully understand. Sending prayers your way Lisa.
