37 years continuously as a pastor and right now I feel like the biggest failure in the world. I am so depressed that I cannot write about it.

God help me, please.

You’re a Man of God
by: Adrian

Hello, my name is Adrian and am not a pastor. However, I plan to become one soon. I am only 18 years old. However, I understand how you’re feeling. I’ve been depressed as well like you. I want to let you know that you’re definitely NOT a failure. You’re a man of God and that doesn’t mean that you’re perfect or that you know everything. I am so proud of you for serving the Lord. I know it’s one of the toughest jobs there is because God tells us that we WILL be hated by the ENTIRE world for His name’s sake. God knows all the hard work you’ve done and continue to do for Him. He knows what you’re going through. I have two parents who are subtance abusers and are the complete opposite of Christians, infidels. They are abusive both physically and verbally. I don’t even live with my mom because I was taken away from her by Child Social Services at 10 years old and haven’t gone back since. My father is abusive as well. I could’ve dealt with my issues with drugs and alcohol like my parents. However, God kept me from doing so and has helped me become saved. A son of two substance abusive infidels has become a born-again saved Evangelical Christian. It’s a miracle. Thanks to Jesus Christ. I tell you this to motivate you and so you understand that we all go through rough times. I am trying to be empathetic so you know you’re not alone. Please keep up the good work and keep being strong. God is good. I will pray for you brother. God richly bless you in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

I understand how you feel. I feel that too because my husband died 6 months ago and he was who I confided in, now I have no one. People feel that I am supposed to have all their answers as well as my own answers, but this is not so. I pray that through the word and prayer that you seek the answers and comfort that you need.

Stand strong

The Lord hears your cry brother. I am a missionary in Pakistan. I felt down after my sermon yesterday and decided to read other peoples experience.
