    I love this sermon. This is directly to me. My wife has filed for a divorce. we have two little girls together. Eight and nine years old. I've struggled so much. With so many things. Depression loneliness. The battle at times with hopelessness. But I praise God that we can lift our hearts up to Jesus. And let Jesus Christ heal our broken hearts.

    I have been Non-Stop praying for healing for the brain fog that I suffer from which is now coming on a year. I pray daily hourly every day of the week. I cry when I pray I pray with passion. On this public forum I promise God to give you all the credit when you heal me of the brain fog that I suffer from. For it'll be because of you that I'm healed. I believe in you. I trust you. I cry to you daily. Please take this brain fog away from me. Please God. Please! I have nowhere else to go and no one else else to turn to but you. I know you hear my plea. I know you see my tears. I know you hurt when I hurt. Please heal me.

    I've grieved over being infertile and single. I've grieved over my unfulfilled dreams of becoming a wife and a mother. Giving those dreams up has been hard, but God comforts those who are brokenhearted.

    Thank you so much Rick. I recently accepted God into my heart and your messages make a huge difference. I know he’s been knocking on my door for years but I kept turning away because of anger and resentment. I’m done trying to help overcome on my own but trust God.

    Thank you God for this message. This is exactly what is going on in my life, I am all of those things right now. I feel like I am drowning right now. At times I wonder if God is really with me but I know that He said He would never leave me nor forsake me I have to remember this over and over.

    my heart was so broken before listening to this, everything the pastor said all the 8 the feelings that might be making you hopeless I can relate to . I feel it all. now I can name it and pray about it specifically. May the Lord help me through this period and give me hope.

    Very encouraging sermon to revive my hope in Lord as. My husband of 35 years has rejected me though we still are together for name sake but I always pray psalm 27 I will see goodness of God in the life of living 🙏

    This sermon really touched my heart and spoke to my deepest pain... And a huge reminder to cry out to God and stop harbouring all my fears and anxiety and resentments
  • Have you ever felt like you were being swallowed up by worry, depression, guilt, or other negative feelings? When Jonah found himself literally swallowed up, he turned to God for help. In this message, Pastor Rick Warren will give you seven lessons you can learn from Jonah chapter 2,

    I somewhat internally roll my eyes at the idea of praying desperately and continually b/c while I know He listens, my continual tears and frustration doesn't seem to change things. I he am image of him just sitting there straight faced, even as I cry out to Him. Prayer just makes me feel so disconnected from Him most of the time. I have felt tired of prayer lately because of this so I just resort to writing in my journal and trying to read or listen relevant scriptures, even though in low spaces I don’t care to really do that either. When I am more uplifted, I try to focus on praise more. I’ve been in a long dry testing season and at this point, it's hard for me to care about prayer when it seems like many of the ones I've sent haven't been addressed, although, He has come through with some things.

    These things I remember
    as I pour out my soul:
    how I used to go to the house of God
    under the protection of the Mighty One!

    Wow this is the sermon I needed to hear. I have all the same feelings as Jonah. I have felt this way for a dozen or more years. It’s taking it’s toll on me.

    I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
    Wait for the Lord;

    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

    Psalms 27:13-14
