I live in a home with my children and we have our problems but I notice the moment I ask God for help I start thinking about the homeless families and I say to myself
“Why would God help me out of this situation when it’s not as bad as a mom sleeping on the streets with her little kids freezing outside like I read in the news”
For some reason these thoughts prevent me from trusting God and my prayers for myself end in “don’t pray for xyz, just be grateful you are not homeless, if God hasn’t allowed those kids a home yet in answer to the homeless mothers prayers” than why do you think He’ll help you be more joyful and strong.
I guess in a nutshell what I’m asking is what thoughts can I use to replace when I all of a sudden stop praying for something for me, even good things like patience and joy, when I remember God didn’t help those kids yet (how my mind thinks) so why do I think He should help me while they’re out there cold and hungry.
Please, I know it sounds strange but maybe I explained it poorly,hoping someone can understand and offer any help. Thank you .
(I volunteer to help at food banks in case anyone says I need to, not sure why I felt the need to say that sorry but I do my best to help others)
