The poverty and powerlessness that you experience in your everyday life is explained by the statement in the Bible 'you have not because you ask not," James 4:2 There are times when you've failed to 'pray without ceasing' and the result is a feeling of defeat and the inability to handle daily problems and situations. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end--a future and a hope. Then shall ye call upin me,..and pray unto me, and I will hear..,when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13 ALl youhave to do is LET GO of what is driving you up a wall. "Know thyself" Much anxiety is not clearly defined. It's mystery deepens emotional pain. When you understand your tension, then relax. Release your grip on tension. Set yourself free from worry and care. God says. "Throw all your anxiety on Me for I really care and think about you and am sensitive to your needs." 1 Peter 5:7 A humble heart is the key. An objection to faith in God is, "Ive tried to pray and I don't feel I am getting through to God. My prayers seem to hit the ceiling." Only two answers apply to this dilemma. The first is that prayer is missing the mark because it is insincere, superficial and lacking genuine faith. The other is that God isn't listening and cannot help. The latter is unacceptable. God is, can and will! "But those that come to God must believe that HE is, and the rewarder of those that diligently seel Him," the Bible says. "Those that come to God will not be turned away," Jesus said. The key that unlocks the access to God has always been a humble heart! God knew when it was time for the raging storm inside to stop, He was merely waiting for you to humbly pray about it. The outside storm was probably His way of saying prayer is what you need to do right now, not any other things. Praise the Lord that He has calmed the raging storm inside of you! You expressed everything so well in the poem! God bless you and keep you in His arms!
