New to this thread. I was thinking of starting a thread somewhere with prayer intentions, or looking for one, but then I saw this. Would this be an appropriate place to ask? Or is there a prayer thread?
I am only asking because I really feel I need the help, and I truly believe in the power of prayer.
Lately I have really been struggling with obsessive thought patterns, just about ridiculous things.....like things we need to buy around here....reasons why this piece of furniture or that isn't good enough.....the loop keeps running in my head.....and it's not matierialism, at least that I know, because I hate buying things.....it is OCD or just repetitive thoughts. I need to see the good.
I was wondering if anyone here could pray for me? Just that my thoughts will be quieted, and that the Lord will show me the right way, and give me PEACE in my soul. That He will bring joy to my days.....and quiet the obessive thoughts. That I will see the important things. Dear Lord, please help me! Bring me your peace.
I really appreciate it. I find that when others pray, it helps. Strength in numbers. Thank you so much. I am really trying. I feel that God is the One who can help me over the hump with this.
Basically what I need, is for the Light to overcome the darkness. I have so many great things in my life. I need those things to get me through. I keep seeing the negative in what is here....not the positives. Honestly, both of our couches are way too firm and we are probably going to have to replace one of them. But maybe not? I can't see the reality, or decide what the right thing to do is. I know this issue seems trivial, but I am having a hard time not letting it consume my thoughts. Obviously, I am struggling with some kind of mental illness. There are some issues in our home that need to be addressed to make it more workable, but it is not healthy to obsess like this.
Please pray that God will help us make some swift decisions, that are the right decisions, so we can just enjoy life together. Thank you, and I'm sorry this is so disjointed.
Editing to add: Spending the rest of the day being super Mom. Luckily my son makes it easy. Trying to be thankful that one couch is long enough and wide enough for hubby and I to lay together. The other one is firm, but still good enough to hold the baby on, and watch him play. I can still lay on it if I want to. We also have one in the garage we could pull out.
