Ok! I can’t stand it any longer! Not writing. 😦 It’s affected my general well being. I feel as if I’ve gone against a purpose God has placed before me. With not writing each morning I’m also not turning to God’s word each morning. And that’s a terrible thing. Being off.of Facebook on the other hand has not been such a terrible thing. 🙂 I haven’t even missed it. Although I do love seeing the pictures of small children and animals, and do love to keep abreast of the comings and the goings of my friends’lives, I do not miss the negativity and disrespect for our fellow mankind.
So here goes. 🙂
Today I just want to write about how good our God is. You see, I’ve been working on my alternative certification for Special Education this past month.. I’ve basically withdrawn from everything and everybody the last four weeks to concentrate on passing a nine week boot camp. I have to tell you, it’s making me a little crazy. I’ve found myself so self-absorbed with watching videos, working through modules, and writing 500 word papers that I’ve lost myself. I’ve lost my mojo. I’ve lost my love for life. My love for people. I’m overthinking and second guessing everything. My intellect. My hearfelt compassion for those with special needs. My ability to teach. My belief in myself. But most of all, my value through God’s eyes.
After surviving a substantial meltdown, I sat quietly in the dark in the privacy of my bedroom with my Golden Retriever at my feet and thought, “What’s the matter with me? I can do this! I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. ” I felt the overwhelming stress begin to melt away. I just needed to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and get away from others. Get away from the world, and just seek God’s face. Ask Him to calm me. Ask Him to guide me. Ask Him to use me as only He sees fit Ask Him to sharpen my mind for the mind is a terrible thing to waste.
I come to you today. Whatever is bothering you. Whatever struggles you are facing. Just know God is greater. He can provide you with the necessary tools to not only survive, but to thrive! In all that you do! Let’s all not go a day without seeking God’s face. Seeking God’s word. That would be a terrible thing. And never forget, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4 : 13
Love and laughter,
