I am having a very hard time right now. I’m failing my classes because
I don’t do all of my homework everyday because lately I’ve been feeling
so sad I can’t make myself do anything and I feel so overwhelmed
I just cry because of it. My family also demands my attention and help,
otherwise, my parents get mad and disappointed in me. I feel so helpless
because I can’t even keep up with my current assignments, not to mention
doing my missing work. I don’t know who to talk to. I’ve tried talking to my
bestie about it a little, but she just told me to be more positive and she doesn’t understand because she’s not having problems with her parents.
My step-dad isn’t being a good person and I’ve been finding it harder
not to answer his prejudiced views and messed up understandings
with something rude or sarcastic. I’m acting nothing like a Christian girl
should act. I’m even ashamed to say I’m Christian, not because I’m scared
of what people will say, but because of how I act. Maybe I act sweet in
public, but on the inside, my good is falling away. I feel so sad, and everything seems to irritate me. My dad doesn’t act like a Christian should
even though he says that he is (yet for some reason he gets really
uncomfortable when I try to talk to him about God) This irritates me.
I just want my family to orbit around God. Yes we go to church, but I don’t know about my mom, but dad doesn’t get anything from it. I don’t have time for God either lately, and I just hate it because I know things would be better if I spent more time praying and reading the Bible. I’m so tired and sad. I don’t know what to do.

Wow, we sound so much alike. If you want to, you can message me at http://raised-fromthe-grave.tumblr.com I know how it is when you really need someone to be there for you, and they just tell you to choose to be happy. It’s the worst.

Honey, I know how you feel. I literally just went through this. I was neglecting my Bible studying, falling away from God, and even started an “unofficial relationship” with somebody who I had no business being that involved with, especially seeing as I’m not old enough to be “involved” with anyone. Long story short, I was failing my walk as a child of God and a daughter. I was months behind on my schoolwork (I’m homeschooled, and my mom trusted me to keep track of my own school this year) our family’s financial situation was… well, we couldn’t even pay the bills. Basically, me and my life were COMPLETELY falling apart. I honestly can’t say for sure what changed. I guess… I started to realize I was going wrong and I just broke. My walls came crumbling down, and God walked into my Jericho heart and healed me. He is even now rebuilding me in His image. It will not be easy, and sometimes you have to be utterly broken before your soul can be healed, but darling, He will pick you up and dust you off, and teach you in His ways. Pray always, even when you have no faith cry out “Lord, I believe! Help my unbelief!” Sometimes, you’re right, you can’t be happy on your own. He has to put His everlasting joy in your heart. Never think you’ve gone too far or fallen to hard. There is nothing beyond the grasp of God. I would urge you to pray every day, and read your Bible. At first, probably nothing will happen, it’ll feel like going through the motions. Don’t give up. Press on, and after time, you will find that the fire for God has been re-lit.
