Sooner or later…

~Sooner or Later~ It would be so much better if you knew sooner rather than later when there is a problem. Sometimes we know there is something going on but fear sets in. You may not feel you have the courage at that time to ask what is going on… What I have learnt is this…don’t wait to ask! Usually,even if it hurts it’s better to find out… ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/RainbowsofLife1 www.facebook.com/AmazingEternalGrace

~ Disappointed~

~ Disappointed~ You are allowed to be disappointed, you are human and you have feelings, desires, boundaries, and needs…. but try not to stay there for too long. After all other people are human too and you can’t expect them to live up to your expectations or needs all of the time and you probably don’t live up to all other people’s expectations either. No one can do that! I extremely dislike disappointment in all its forms. It not only hurts you at times, but it can also crush hopes, dreams, desires, it can spell the end of something. Disappointment is a heaviness that hangs and sometimes it takes a good while to go away. Often when we are disappointed it’s when something is beyond our control but many times it can even be in our self. Disappointment is very real, you feel it deeply but once you have recognised…

What are things really worth after all???

Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 “I said in my heart, Come now, I will test you with mirth; therefore consider and behold goodness; this also is vanity. I said of laughter, It is madness; and of mirth, What does it do? I sought in my heart to drag my flesh with wine, yet leading my heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, until I might see where the good for the sons of men might be, what they should do under the heavens all the days of their life. I made my works great; I built houses for myself; I planted vineyards for myself. I made gardens and orchards for myself, And I planted trees in them, of all fruit. I made pools of water for myself, to water the forest shooting forth trees. I bought slaves and slave women, and sons of the house were mine; also livestock, a herd…

Removing the sting… 

Removing the sting… sting [sting] verb 1. to prick or wound with a sharp-pointed, often venom-bearing organ. 2. to affect painfully or irritatingly as a result of contact, as certain plants do: to be stung by nettles. 3. to cause to smart or to cause a sharp pain: The blowing sand stung his eyes. 4. to cause mental or moral anguish: to be stung with remorse. 5. to goad or drive, as by sharp irritation. Lots of ‘stings’ happen every day. I wonder how to deal with them? Stings can be around every corner. Is that only me or do you notice this too? Am I the only one to feel ‘stings’ that result from interactions that happen around us each and every day? Am I super sensitive or does everyone feel them? And then perhaps I also wonder do these experiential ‘stings’ blend into each persons background noise? I have arrived at a place in my life where I didn’t think I would really land… ‘Stings’ have driven me to a place where trust is getting quite limited.  I find that I am much happier to keep people at arm’s length! I finally came to that conclusion only this morning when a thought crossed my mind about someone, I honestly don’t know who it was, and I sensed some offense because I felt hurt or…

New lands and borders…

~New lands and borders~ It’s been hard but I’ve had to put some boundaries into my life where they had previously never been. It’s really hard to know a boundary when you’ve never lived it before… When you put a new boundary in place, it really might feel wrong for a time, you may not know if you are doing the right thing…  If it’s a new boundary then its unknown and its uncharted territory… And… it might be a bit scary. It’s like riding a wave and not knowing where it will take you. We have to trust God as He made the wind, the waves, the currents, the times, the seasons. Sometimes I think “I sure hope I am hearing Him right..” It doesn’t happen too often, but in the middle of putting a ‘growth step’ in place maybe I need to pray about it again and ask God to…

Proceed with caution…

~Proceed with caution~ Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life ~ Proverbs 4:23 ~ Proceed with caution is probably the best advice we can use in most circumstances that we face. I don’t want to find myself stopping dead in my tracks and I don’t want to go back, I want to keep moving forward so the best thing I can do is proceed with caution. We need to scope out the lay of the land, and keep in mind the wisdom that has been given to us as we step ahead. The danger is to step out on the ‘outside’ but step back on the ‘inside’. Guarding your heart doesn’t mean closing your heart but this is often easier said than done. I know from experience… To find the balance between loving, caring, sharing, and not is a very narrow space!…
