Hey all, so there's a story behind this prayer request, but I'll try to express it with some amount of brevity. So about two to three weeks ago, I had the worst depression episode I've had since I surrendered my life to Christ just over three years ago...for some reason, I was feeling really dejected and worthless because it's been almost two years since I've had any sort of steady employment.
It got to the point where I wanted to start injuring myself again (also something I haven't done since I came to Christ). At that point, I realized that this was from Satan himself...especially in light of 1 Peter 5:8. So, after some intense prayer time, the attack stopped.
Now, here's my main prayer request, and what I would like some wisdom/advice on. Since that attack, I've been thinking and praying about really getting into the best shape of my life (I've always been kinda chunky) and then enlisting in the Air Force. I know that it's not exactly going to be a vacation, but I do think that it'd be a good service/gospel opportunity, plus I'd gain some mad skills while in the Air Force.
Just pray that God would grant me wisdom and discernment in my decision-making process, and that I would work diligently toward that goal.
