It is so important to make sure your mental health is well, healthy. It is OKAY to seek help. Recently, I have been dealing with someone who has never asked for help in this area. They think everyone is at fault except for them. I know their past has haunted them and this is why they are the way, they are. While it hurts my feelings with the words they spew, I have to make sure my boundaries are keeping me safe. The most important thing is asking God, what to do. It sounds so cliche, but if you remove yourself from all the noise this world puts out and just listen, you will hear the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit instruct you in what do do. I am always trying to fix things and make things happen. But it hasn’t always worked out. Simply ask, “Lord what is it you want me to do”…trust me, something will be said. It may not be what you want, but it is what is right.
Migrating from WordPress to a self hosted site, has been hard. WordPress is like a bad break up, they are ex that doesn’t want to return your things.
Life has not been easy this last month. Changes in my age, my employment, family issues…I want life to slow down and just be peaceful. It gets really difficult. Thankfully God is bigger than all of these issues.
I switched from WordPress to have my site managed by someone else I trust. In the midst of the change over, my 1 year old, just past the warranty date, lap top decide to crash. I was trying to work on the website via cell phone or borrowing other people’s computers. I also had several other things happen. I had debilitating stomach pain that led to lots of testing which determined, I am just getting old. I found another part time job that will increase my work hours to almost 30 hours a week. We were exposed to lice and was just cleared of not having it. I am tired and cranky. I just want peace and to slow down. But the computer is fixed and better than before, I start the new job tomorrow, my tummy is better and we don’t feel the need to itch anymore. Thank you Heavenly Father, for carrying us through these situations and reminding us, you are greater than all of these things.
Being tested, it is not fun. But it reminds you if you have matured in that area. Usually, I fail and get mad or whiny. But thankfully God doesn’t rub our nose in it. We just need to take a moment, reset, ask for forgiveness and pray for guidance and protection. That valley is deep but our God is greater!
My health is worth more than an always clean home or a conflict becoming a confrontation.
When I am in search for
answers, I seem to ask everyone for their opinion or experience with that matter. Unfortunately, I end up more frustrated and anxious with all the information. Sometimes, being still and patient are what is needed. The answers will come.
When you give of yourself to a friend, family member or stranger, it really does bless you more than it blessed them. Be helpful, be kind.
Life is just hard sometimes. Thankfully, God will take care of those times.
Give your sorrows to God. Ask Him to fill you with a hope and determination that will strengthen your bones.
When things do not work out, we need to look at it as an opportunity for something better instead of mourning it.
