Feelings of Uselessness can sneak up out of no where. We are always working so hard and putting our needs at the end of a very long list that really it doesn’t take long until we start feeling very unimportant. Yes, this is a normal feeling for us all. It does not mean that these feelings are true or right it just means that you are human.
I have reached the point of feeling useless to many times to count. I always feel that I am not doing enough for others. I feel that I am not doing enough for my Church. I feel that I am not doing enough for my family. In fact I often feel that I am not doing enough for this online ministry. This is a burden that I bare on a daily bases. This feeling can become a major problem if I am not careful.
You see when we hold on to these feelings of uselessness we are opening ourselves up for doubt. We are allowing Satan to run wild in our minds. It is in these moments that Satan knows that we are at a weak point in our hearts. We are at a weak point in our walks. If left unattended we will become weak spiritually.
You see we are to be joyous in Christ. Yes, it is easier said than done but we are to know that we are loved. After all God’s Word tells us that we are. We should know that we hold great value as a Child of God. In those moments that we don’t we should know that in those moment s that those feelings are in fact not from God.
*******If we are having doubts about how well we are doing in areas of our lives we need to pray.We need to seek direction from God as to what it is that we need to do.
*******We also need to seek Christian counsel from a friend who can offer us words of wisdom and can also be a pillar of support. A great support system in our lives helps us through so many of life’s many struggles. So much more than we will ever know.
******We also need to remember who it is that we serve. We are not technically serving those around us. No, we are serving our heavenly Father. The very one who loves us more than we can ever imagine. And to Him we are far from useless.
