As of recently I have allowed the enemy to attack me and throw me into a pit, of sorts. I am one who is prone to guilt, not just the "oops, that was foolish," but "I am such a miserable failure, useless and lacking." The enemy, of course, uses this against me. He is called, in the book of Revelation, 'The Accuser of the Brethren."
And so, I must come back to the Word, where I find help in time of need.
"May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Hebrews 13:21
I would be so lost without my Shepherd.
