Your Local Weather Man....

The last few days have been that kind of storm that the weather man some how missed. I'm sure, like me, you've experienced circumstances and storms that catch you off guard. I'm encouraged and strengthened by the knowledge that I'm not walking this journey alone.

A few things I think are worth learning during these times:

1. There is ALWAYS TIME TO PRAY! (You'll "feel" and make things worse if you don't.)

2. No matter how much you "don't feel like it", READ YOUR BIBLE! It is our compass, our true north as it were when it feels like our life is spinning. We need more truth, not more feelings in crisis. (Psalms 46 is a good start.)

3. Don't believe that you have to be depressed because you encounter something heart breaking. Grieve....yes. Harbor

4. Make it a point to not make any major decisions when feeling overwhelmed. (Unless absolutely necessary).

5. Make sure you are eating right and getting plenty of rest.

6. Remember you can't fix people and fix every circumstance. STOP CARRYING THAT RESPONSIBILITY. THE GOD position is currently filled.

7. Get off your computer now and practice doing number 1.

I mean it....Off,

  1. nice! it's interesting because carrie and i talk about #1 and #2 all of the time. then we put into perspective that the 1-2 hours we watch of tv every night, is a prime time to be reading and growing...not sitting and withering.
