That’s exactly what I felt like after today’s events. It’s like someone placed me in the oven and turned it on full blast–scorching hot. It was one thing after another and I was not in the position to help myself. I was watching my life from above and could not interfere. It was not pleasant.
I felt discouraged and like no one was really listening to me. So I put the phone down, turned off the music, and begin to have a conversation with myself.
Yes, I’m admitting I talk to myself… it’s called self-encouragement.
I began to tell myself that I am good enough. I do deserve this. With tears in my eyes I told myself good news, the opposite of what I heard earlier today. Although dark clouds was what my mind dwelled on, I pushed them aside and began to be my own sunshine. Sometimes all you have is yourself. Finally, I began to talk to God and tell Him how I felt. He’s the best listener I know.
So what do you do when life comes at you fast? Nope I don’t grab a snicker, but I do hold onto my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Prayer is so important. Although I felt weak and helpless, I depended on the Lord for strength. We can’t handle this life on our own.
Lean not unto thy own understanding in ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Who are you acknowledging?
Just for fun: this song described what I was feeling earlier lol. Enjoy!
