Dear Living by Faith, As you, yourself, have shared..and I agree that this does sound like an attack coming at you as your thoughts are spiraling down and as that negative thinking continues it is really easy to go more and more into depression. It may help to start a thread about the depression and these thoughts in Counseling Requests where others there can counsel you more than we can here. Here mainly we can give you comfort and encouragement and you have been given good and attentive replies here.

I think it could help you to start a new thread over in Counseling Requests but it is up to you. It may also help to talk to someone in your church about how it is going for you and receive some counsel there..maybe a pastor or counselor on staff??
Meanwhile, this morning you are in my prayers. As for finding the time for the Lord you want and need..you might consider taking a break from posting and using the time in which you have been spending on other sections as well as here to just get alone with the Lord.
peace in Christ,
