spirit overwhelmed

I cry out to the Lord with my voice;
With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.



 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path.
In the way in which I walk
They have secretly set a snare for me.


 Look on my right hand and see,
For there is no one who acknowledges me;
Refuge has failed me;
No one cares for my soul.

I cried out to You, O Lord:

I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
Attend to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are stronger than I.


Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me,
For You shall deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 142



He [Elijah] said, 
“I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; 
for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, 
torn down Your altars, 
and killed Your prophets with the sword. 
I alone am left;
 and they seek to take my life.”


...And the Lord said unto him...

 "Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel,
 all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, 
and every mouth that has not kissed him.”

1 Kings 19:10, 18

Sometimes I feel so alone like I'm the only one. 
I'm so tired of fighting and struggling to understand everything.
But when I look around, I know I'm not the only one
I know I'm not alone
And I know it's worth it. 

However, even this knowledge sometimes fails to silence my weary thoughts at night, 
What if I'm the only one who feels like this?
What if I'm alone?
What if no one will listen?

What if-?

  3. Thank you for this! I needed it!

    One of my favorite passages in the Bible is when Elijah is like "There's nobody else!!" and then God is like "There's 7 thousand!" It's somewhat comical but then yet we act the same was as Elijah! <3
