We can rise above and He will carry us through

I woke up at 6:15am this morning and I straight away heard God speaking several things to me… He was speaking to me about how to rise above the circumstances. We cant get away from everything that is happening around us… We have to know how to get by when we are in the middle of difficult and challenging circumstances. I got a picture of an eagle gliding on the thermal currents. I know I have heard of this before but I wasn’t quite sure what it meant. I looked it up tonight and the explanation was fantastic. It said that the temperature over different parts of land is different – some hotter than others. For example in a desert as opposed to over an ocean. And there are pockets of cooler air and when the hot air touches the cool air it forces itself to rise above the cold air……

The Valley Between

There is a valley between that elusive place of peace and happiness and the real life that we live in. I have been chasing peace and happiness…., just simple peace and happiness…. not even immense serenity and overflowing joy, just peace and happiness, a life without drama, a life with no illness, no doctors, no forms and paperwork, no out of the ordinary problems or dramas, a life without ill loved ones, people struggling, injustice and the list goes on. I believe life has a higher purpose and that is where I find my meaning. The things that used to bring me wholeness, joy, mean ing etc just don’t do that anymore… I see things through an eternal perspective and I know things here just keep getting more difficult, complicated and the way the world is going… diabolical. The more I hope for this peace here on earth the more elusive it seems. I…

Precious precious peace….

~Precious precious peace….~ Ah for peace… I crave peace… I grew up in a tense household with many heightened emotions displayed… to say the least, things spoken and things unspoken. One of the adverse affects of this on me is that I just cant cope with tension, anger, raised voices, with stress even if its not directed at me. I have grown so much, and I am most certainly not who or what I used to be… I am a very different woman, but in times when I am low, more than others, I recoil if I sense these things, I want it to stop. My immediate response is in my back… I can feel it in the middle of my back as weird as it might sound. I want to back away and I will say anything to have it over as soon as possible or shorten the conversation…

You can run… But you can’t hide….

~2 Corinthians 4:8-9~ We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair; We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed; When the weight of stress and responsibility presses all around you there are certain things, well a lot actually that you can’t run from as much as you would like to. While driving along up in the hills the other weekend to visit some family, the tranquillity that I began to sense all around just made me want to escape and stay there with them – the greenery of the forest, the open fire, the crisp fresh air, the innocence of children and nature. I turned…

Finding Hope for a Brand New Day….

I’m thinking of you all that are struggling right now today… My heart goes out to you all..I have sat and read through my whole Newsfeed on Facebook and all the joy, hope, positivity, life and love that was contained in there. While it was so good to read and just what we need to be reading… I think of the ones that struggling right now… I sit here in bed, just sensing the anxiety that is going on inside me, it’s about a whole lot of different things, it’s not my choice, and I don’t want to feel this way but I do and my place is to share where I am at because I know that there are many others of you that are feeling the same way as me, and probably much worse… If you struggle with depression or anxiety it’s a very real thing, most of…

More Thoughts on Anxiety….

Last week I reposted an old post of mine on anxiety, several people liked and commented on it and my fellow page writer Troy from Flourishing Life Society made these comments… “Anxiety is one of the topics i have been lost in over the last several months. It plays a huge role in how we live our lives” I know that one thing for sure has played a part in mine. It seems I only just realised just how much of a part it had played too. At the end of 2010 I finally went to the doctors decided to go on anti-depressants… I have battled my whole life with varying degrees of anxiety. But it was not until earlier this year when I was looking for something I had written that I re-read through some of my journals and was SHOCKED to read how often I had woken up…
