It’ll Work…

It’ll Work There are things that only yesterday used to work. Each day things in your life change without you even noticing. It changes in the tiniest increments barely visible to the naked eye or comprehensible by the mind. It changes in degrees, in seconds, in heartbeats, in flashes, in steps and turns, in a thought, in an attitude, in a decision or choice…. And all without our knowledge, observation, understanding, or seemingly our choice or permission. The thing is that every degree, second, heartbeat, thought, choice, is some kind of decision, either by our free will whether we are aware of that or not or by what circumstances life has thrust upon us, and even then as it is thrust upon us we have choices and decisions and reactions to make second after second after second. So when I come to the today of my life and that particular…

Total Recall…

Thoughts go in and out if my mind so quickly it amazes me! I get on a train of thought and then the thoughts start coming thick and fast. I’m even talking about good thoughts, ideas, things you want to remember, and as quick as they appeared in their as quickly they depart again… Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with your own self! Just think then how many thoughts go unrecognised, flitting here and there and in and out of your subconscious mind, into the fore and then back again. Many times I have gone to bed thinking about something and I say to myself that I MUST remember this in the morning! I give myself one word that will help me remember it, like a key word but I have found time and time again that it doesn’t work. Morning comes and with it there is no memory…

But!????

“I do want to do that…. But…” “I do like them… But…”… “I don’t want to buy that… But…” “I want them to come over… But…” For some reason or another sometimes we add a but to our statements and answers… I was telling my friend about something that I wanted… but… So we started thinking about the ‘buts’ that punctuate our conversations. She used this example: Why invite somebody when you don’t really want them to come…… But, we say to ourselves ‘it’s the right thing to do’, but really it’s for the wrong reasons!! Everything we do has a motive and we need to check that motive where it’s coming from….our heart or our head! We can still feel wrong but if our heart’s motive is right and we know it’s the right thing to do in God‘s eyes then God will change our feelings to line up.…

Some things I have learnt this last week…

1. I have a limit: I don’t know when it might come so I need to look out for it and get new strategies. Even if I am handling it ok right now, there is a point at which all of a sudden I start not coping. I need to be aware of that and that I can only do so much and then I have to walk away and not get pulled into solving a problem that I can’t solve. 2. Don’t play games and get sucked in: I am learning how to handle situations with people who are agitated or upset…. I am learning to keep calm, keep a steady tone, not get pulled into the ‘game’ playing scenario. 3.What the real issue is: I am learning that when people are upset there is often something else at the bottom of the whole thing, people deflect their agitation…

No time like the Present…

God is beginning to deal with you in certain areas of your life then some things will start coming out into the light and it’s probably not going to be pleasant…. We know that the pain of staying where we are is much worse than the pain of going through. When you are not prepared to work through these things it makes it hard to cope with today…. You can’t cope with today if you haven’t dealt with yesterday! The yesterday’s catch up on you. If this is where you are at it may be very difficult right now but remember the people closest around you don’t necessarily know what is happening… And it can be hard but God can give the grace to make it through in the best way. When you are avoiding your yesterday’s then you are not able to cope with today in the best way…

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…
