Amen.

I see now, the difficulties I experienced earlier in life. Have only strengthened and refined my faith in Christ.

 

And Amen to that!

I pray for everyone as a whole on both WD forums, and if I know someone is struggling I pray for them by name. I'll be praying for you, Zoe and I would love if you could pray for me as well. My name is Jessica. :)

Let's all pray to god that we get better day by day

I pray for you all. God help us to get free and heal from these bad medicines and help us that everything will be fine. Help these people also to find the kingdom of heaven. Jesus you are the way, the truth and the life. Name of Jesus, amen. I believe we live near the time when Jesus will come and all this suffering will end. I hope that some day we will see in the heaven. God bless you all.


Everything started 2015 and here's shortly how it went: Bad diet change --> health problems  -->  problems caused by medicines --> 5-6 months benzos --> about half year Mirtazapine for supporting sleep in benzo tapering (because I first tried to do it too fast) --> Mirtazapine caused more problems  --> 3 years Escitalopram (including tapering) --> 1 year tapering from 15 mg to 5,73 mg and then cold turkey from that dose in september 2019.

Praying for you too Ismo, that you will recover quickly and that the Lord will show Himself in a very special way to you as you recover.   And it will be wonderful when the Lord returns and we can be free of all pain.  Blessings to you!

Praying for everyone here that this loss and pain becomes not so hard to deal with and your path is lightened. May peace abound in your soul and God guides you to each step through this. May you not feel alone and people can really be there for you. That you see yourself as a beautiful strong soul that is supported by Gods presence. Amen

I've just found this on the excellent website get self help:

 

https://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/christian.htm

 

At the bottom of the page there is a link to 3 books which members might find helpful.  I've looked at the reviews and all 3 look very good.

 

I'll put them here:

 

Christian Self Help Books

 

 

I don't agree with the get self help website owner's thoughts on meditation.

 

https://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/christianmeditation.htm

 

The Bible tells us not to repeat the same thing/s when praying.  Repeating a word or phrase, even if it is Biblical or Christian is new age.

 

I've only skimmed over the following page, but at a glance it seems a much better way to meditate.
