When You’re at the End of Your Rope, It’s Time to Tie a Knot and Pray!

Unfortunately, being at the end of my rope happens a lot for me. I can have a major break down and lose it, because I feel like there is no hope left. I’m just so done, I don’t even know what to do. Then, I remember one of two things; my favorite quote and I just need to get on my knees and pray!

Tying the knot

Everyone has their own “rope,” mine just happens to have a ton of knots in it. I have held on tight to my rope for so long, that I really can’t depend on it to save me anymore. It’s starting to fray and unravel, making my life a little bit of a mess. My anxiety has taken my chest hostage and it feels tight all the time, making it difficult to breathe and function in my daily life. So, I’ve decided to let go of my rope and find my way back to God and regain my faith I have lost.

Finding My Faith

See, I used to be pretty religious. I was the girl who went to church every Wednesday night and every Sunday morning. I helped in the Children’s class, and was also on the praise and worship team! Life was amazing and I could feel God everywhere I went. In fact, my faith was so strong I didn’t rely on a stupid rope. I relied on God!

Thanks to going to church on Easter Sunday, I realized I can’t do this on my own anymore. My fight is getting a lot harder and I need God back in my life. I am getting back on the road God set before me and I’m finding my faith again! God never left me, despite what I may have thought. Everything was just so clouded by my self-doubt. I’ve been so lost, I need to find my way back to Him.

My church played a promo after the service on Easter Sunday and instantly I knew God was speaking to me. Starting the 23rd, my church is starting a new series, call The Dark Side of Life! Not only did that title catch my eye, but so did the other words that went across the screen. There were two words in particular that made me say “OK God I hear you!” Can you guess what they were? Anxiety and Depression.

When You’re at the End of Your Rope, It’s Time to Tie a Knot and Pray! 

So, from here on out my “rope,” will be my faith and the “knot,” will be God! I can’t wait to share more of my faith with all of you and how much it’s going to help with my mental health. Now, before you un-follow or un-subscribe, I’m not turning my blog into a religious spill, but it will have some religious snippets here and there.


Have you lost your faith? What do you do when you’re at the end of your rope?
