Dominic...pray with us to the LORD please... I am sadly harassed by doubts, fears, unbelief,in a felt spiritual darkness.My heart is full of evil surmisings and disquietude,and I cannot act faith at all.My heavenly Pilot has disappeared,and I have lost my hold on the Rock of Ages;I sink in deep mire beneath storms and waves,in horror and distress unutterable.Help me, O Lord,to throw myself absolutely and wholly on thee,for better, for worse, without comfort,and all but hopeless.Give me peace of soul, confidence, enlargementof mind,morning joy that comes after night heaviness;Water my soul richly with divine blessings;Grant that I may welcome thy humbling in private so that I might enjoy thee in public;Give me a mountain top as high as the valley is low. Thy grace can melt the worst sinner, and I am as vile as he; Yet thou hast made me a monument of mercy,a trophy of redeeming power;In my distress let me not forget this.All-wise God,Thy never-failing providence orders every event,sweetens every fear,reveals evil’s presence lurking in seeming good,brings real good out of seeming evil,makes unsatisfactory what I set my heart upon,to show me what a short-sighted creature I am,and to teach me to live by faith uponthy blessed self.Out of my sorrow and nightgive me the name Naphtali —‘satisfied with favour’ — help me to love thee as thy child,and to walk worthy of my heavenly pedigree.(Prayer from "The Valley of Vision")
Eph 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.So Christ lives in your heart right this VERY second. John 17:3, "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."The person of Christ upholds you and sustains you.Heb. 1:3, "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding (sustains) all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."Look at what Jesus is doing NOW! This is true of you. Believe this now and see that Jesus bears me up from or as from below; Jesus upholds me; Jesus supports me; Jesus sustains my load. Jesus keeps me from falling, or sinking; Jesus sustains my weight. Jesus keeps me from sinking into despondency; Jesus sustains me by hope. Jesus maintains and keeps me up. Jesus maintains me with undiminished force or intensity for my lifetime and forever by a sustained effort. Jesus maintains and supports me with the needs of life. Jesus aids, comforts, and relieves me. Jesus suffers under, bears, and undergoes me. Jesus endures for me without failing or yielding; Jesus bears up under for me.Jesus conveys and transports me. Jesus conducts, leads, and guides me; Jesus escorts, moves, and causes me to go forward. Jesus transfers me from one place to another. Jesus takes me the distance in a single stroke. Jesus conveys me by extension and continuance; Jesus extends me. Jesus possesses and obtains me; Jesus wins and captures me. Jesus supports and sustains me; Jesus holds me while He moves about from place to place; Jesus contains me and carries me about inside Himself. Jesus carries me as a mother carries a child in her womb. Jesus carries me as His attribute and property, His show or exhibit. Jesus holds me high. Jesus sustains my weight and burden. Jesus produces me as a crop; Jesus supports me with sustenance. Jesus makes me good and valid.Jesus supports and moves me; Jesus carries and conveys me. Jesus renders and gives me; Jesus brings me forward. Jesus conducts and brings me. Jesus manages, wields, and directs me. Jesus possesses and uses me. Jesus possesses and carries me as a mark of distinction. Jesus carries and holds me in His mind. Jesus carries on and maintains me. Jesus gains and wins me. Jesus supports, sustains, and holds me up. Jesus is answerable for me. Jesus admits me; Jesus is capable of me. Jesus brings forth and produces me.Jesus carries my burden and suffers for me. Jesus withstands strains and bears against testing for me. Jesus endures difficulties with patience for me. Jesus means, intends, and effects me. Jesus presses up against for me. Jesus takes effect, maintains influence and force for me. Jesus bears me and produces me as His fruit.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2 Corinthians 2:14The certainty of victory here and now is where faith lives. Complete and absolute victory, first in the little things, and then in the larger issues of life and death that God has placed before us, with the defeat of and complete victory over death being the purpose for which God has given us the Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 5, 1 Corinthians 15) and the full manifestation of all the life of Jesus inside us right here in this earth (Romans 8:18-23). This is the imminent reality of victory that God always leads us in the celebration of right now!But the celebration and dance and shouting and wonder that we are caught in by a God who always seems to be too much, is for and must start with all the little things as well. God always leads us to celebrate imminent and certain victory in all things - our family life, our relationships with others, in sickness, for those we love, in our finances, in our work - in all things.According to Paul in 2 Corinthians 2, God always leads us in a celebration of full and total victory in all things before we see any such victory with our eyes.There is always, in God's leading, the full expectation and consciousness of His goodness and favor. If that confidence is lacking, we are still in God's goodness, we just cannot know it.God always leads us IN triumph, that is, God always leads us to celebrate total and absolute victory in all things and in every way, now, WHEN WE DO NOT SEE IT OR FEEL IT. To dance on this side of the sea, to celebrate the victory before we see it with our eyes. Peter says it this way: "Whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory." James says it this way: "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials."
Go find a needy lost soul and serve them in some way. It shouldn't be hard to find one or many such persons. Just serve in any way you possibly can. Spend yourself, use whatever gifts you may have. Remember these words, "Silver and gold have I none but such as I have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.Do you have hands? Go lift someone up! There are plenty out there who are down and out. And you do have SOMETHING to give! GO...!
In truth none of us know what other people's private life and thoughts are in this world. I managed to hide mine for years.I found great change in persona revival. Finally repenting of the things the Lord had been asking me to for many years. That one step of over coming can produce so much goodness, and also a new walk and a new life with Christ. It changed the course of my life. You may have been taught so much fake stuff as a believer. And we don't know it until we come out of this world's ways by following the Lord and his precious commands to us. I don't know where you're at with the Lord. Only you and He will know that.
