Void Of Feelings Or Emotions

I am completely stagnant. I am at the point of knowing in and of myself I can do nothing, but it seems like God has nothing for me and I'm just taking up space. I'm frustrated and void of feeling or emotion. Has anybody else been through this?

Thank you brothers and sisters in Christ. Bless you all. Tracy, I do not know if you are still reading these blogs, If you are, consider printing this one out, even if that feeling has pasted. This is some of the best "preaching" I have ever heard.:o) The Father is always with you, for He dwells within you. His promise is He will never leave the believer, nor will He forsake us. I think we have all been where you are/were. Look up, your redemption draws near.

Tracy:: when you are like clay Then you are ready for the Potters hand.Pray & consider your options. Despair is a deadly SIN.Trust in Him & still steer your ship till it comes to port.

Yes! Name it and I think that I have been through it. And I am going to go through a whole lot more.
---catherine on 1/31/08

My dear, you are in the valley. It's all right. Simply pray the word "Jesus" if you must, the Lord's Prayer, and above all, when you can, THANK HIM for the troubles you are experiencing. Once you do that, He can use your troubles to His glory, then, what was meant against you, He will turn around for your good! He is awesome and merciful. Thank God you care and seek Him! Be encouraged, there is also a mountaintop to experience.

Congratulations, experience has taught me that you are in exactly the right position. Go now before the Lord in prayer and request him, by his Spirit, to take over your life and work his will in your life. When you are stagnant and void of an agenda you are perfectly placed to be used of God. Again I congratulate you for reaching this position.

I have had the same since Saturday. I felt a release,then cried all night,then the void.This is an emptying out so The Lord may fill us. Perhaps the void you feel is similar, a letting go, a period of grief, a release of the past? Do not believe for one moment that Jesus is not walking next to you. Submit yourself to Our Lord during this time. I am soaking in The Word by listening to it on CD. It is a precious time, do not be afraid or allow yourself to feel abandoned. It is a period of renewal.

You need to be looking up right now ain't no devil in hell can stop you now time get ready My sister. He said as far as the east is from the west he has removed our transgressions from us. Don't be getting your wellies/ swimming cossy on and go fishing in the sea of forgetfulness, Remember that you are wearing a white Gown so don't allow the wiles of the devil to mess it up, put up your shield of FAITH GIRL! and send those darts back.

NO WEAPON formed against us will prosper, every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God will not return void, WE're blessed in the City, we're Blessed in the Fields, WE're Blessed when we come and when we GO, We cast down every strongholds sickness and poverty must CEASE for the devil IS defeated, WE ARE BLESSED!
---Carla5754 on 6/4/07


Don't vacate your house so quickly, the strong man has to first come and try to bind you up first before he can rob you. The devil is a liar he's already defeated. You going give him the pleasure of Telling God ''I told you she was a failure''. NO way! Your a soldier in Gods Army you may be perplexed Girl but you ain't Cast down. Shame the devil weeping may endure for a night BUT JOY, JOY comes in the morning!
---Carla5754 on 6/4/07

Lift your hands in the air free of that white cloth, there's no surrendering here, Nothing can pluck you out of Gods hands, Hold on your change is going to come, Hold fast in the liberty that God has given you, He said he'll never leave you nor forsake you, No Sir NOT even to the End of the world, so that include you! and when thou art delivered Go and encourage someone else, God bless you my sister never let your guard down, you have come toooo far to turn back now.
---Carla5754 on 6/4/07

We are given a helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness,a Shield(word) of faith, we are even given something for our feet, the preparation of the Gospel of peace, NOTHING< NOTHING for the back because thats not an option in the Army of God. Have faith and resist the devil he will have to Flee, renew the mind by the word of God and nothing nothing can come nigh thy dwelling, LOve CARLXXXXXXXX
---Carla5754 on 6/4/07

When the enemy comes in (like) a flood remember

Then the LOrd will lift up a Standard Against him. Some times we have to get out of pity party and stand up in the liberty in which we have in the Lord. My God said we are fearfully and wonderfully made and WONDEROUS are HIS works. You are the head and not the tail of your circumstances COME ON, Get your Sheild of Faith, Lift it up against the devil. The only way he can come in is if you let him, KICK HIM OUT!
---Carla5754 on 6/4/07

Sure, I used to pass through that place from time to time. It required me to focus on others, anything outside of myself. That's hard to do when you're really into YOU. I know, believe me. But it does help. Keep talking to the Lord and trusting that He is working in your life. He is, you know!!
Bless you.
---Dee on 5/9/07

Dear friend. You are going through a dry spell in the Lord. That happens but God has not forgotten about you. Go to a secret place where you can be alone, really let down in your spirit(become vulnerable and humble) and cry out to God. Literally cry out to Him. Tell Him basically what you are saying here on this blog, listen to Him for He will answer you. He said when we will call out to Him He will answer us. I pray you will come back to a fruitful and happy place in God...very soon. Love you
---Robyn on 5/7/07

You don't need feelings or emotions for God to use you. I've never had either of those things, or so I've been told.
---ralph7477 on 5/7/07

Dear Tracy.
Don't despair. We all feel like that at times.
Job was famously at wits end when God loved him all along.
Even Our Lord felt despondent on the cross "My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me?"
It's what it means to be human (although, of course, Jesus was human without sin).
Pray for grace and courage to carry out God's will - above all to love God and to love neighbour (Jesus' two greatest commandments).
God Bless.

I believe everyone has those periods where they seem dry, as if in a desert. It is during those times when I must stay in God's Word, and conciously choose to obey God, and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Also, I must acknowledge that I am not here for myself. God has a purpose for my life to serve HIM and OTHERS. In serving God and others, I shake that dry people.

Be still and know that i am God
---betty on 5/5/07

Sounds like you need to get out there and involve yourself for others so you can get your mind off yourself. That, in itself will set you up for other problems, but at least you will feel much better about yourself.
---john on 5/6/07

I think you must have been terribly hurt in life, that is why you are cutting off all emotion. It hurts to think. Remember, whatever it is, Jesus Christ knows about it and He is there for you. Ask His light to fill your mind and to remove all which is not from Him, and replace it with His Truth.

Oh my goodness yes so many times sinse I have been saved. I have got to tell you it is from stinky thinking. I will not sugar kote. When we don't get our way we start blaiming God. Or when He is disciplining or chastening us at times I get kinda irritated with God. Oh my goodness then all you mentioned above starts. Bad attitude never helps. And it will not move God in your favor. Not until you or I GET FORGIVENESS, and straighten up. Then everything is humpty dorey once again.
---catherine on 5/5/07

Tracy: Yes, I've been through this. I suppose it's a time of rest. Be patient and wait upon The Lord. (Isa 40:29-31) While your waiting, read Ecclesiastes; I think Solomon went through the same thing.
P.S. Nice name. ;0)
---tracy3346 on 5/5/07

Join the club of those who are prepared to be used by God. Only when you come to the end of self can He use you to His glory.
That is a wonderful place to be, (and to revisit if one becomes puffed up and holier than thou, believeing they know it all in Christ.
Write us again in after the Lord begins to reveal to you His will for your life, share the blessings, and spread the joy. Keep praying, keep praying, keep praying ..., and then pray some more.
---lynet on 5/5/07

The great Christian poet John Milton said, "They also serve who only stand and wait."

In the Christian life, periods of consolation (on the mount of Feel Good) and desolation (frustration and feeling like God has forgotten you) alternate. The term "Dark Night of the Soul" sprecifically refers to long periods of desolation.

Part 2:

Have you ever read Screwtape Letters? In it, the narrator says that the demons are in no greater danger than when a Christian looks at a world from which all sign of God is gone, asks why s/he has been abandoned, and STILL intends to obey and follow.
---Jack on 5/5/07

You are not just taking up space. Even though it might not seem like it to you - God has a place for you. Maybe big, maybe small. Prayer and praise will help you - even if you feel nothing initially - it will not be wasted. Do not be afraid.

---grace3869 on 5/5/07

mima has hit the nail on the head.God has allowed life to beat you down to a point where if you decide to allow him you can be really used of the spirit.he can now make himself known to you.but remember it,s by his power,his love, his will that peace will come too you.and yes I too have been broken ,and not known where too turn.
---tom2 on 5/5/07

Yes, and I believe it may be more common then you realize. Try to cling to what the Word says, for instance that it is God's plan to prosper you and not to harm you. Psalms have been uplifting for me during these times.
Knowing that in and of yourself you can do nothing can be a humble place, a place to die to self, and trust the Lord as HE is able. You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you, and He is your strength in weakness. Bless you.
