Lately Ronnie and I have had some life struggles we are having to walk through. It can be from finances, people, health, just everyday life. When someone does a wrong to me, I go into my protective mode, Isolating and wanting to give up on whatever the situation may be, just so I don’t have to feel the pain of it. When someone or something hurts me, I don’t want to walk through the hurt, I just withdraw from whatever the situation is and shut down completely which has cost me some amazing friendships in the past. In my walk in recovery, I am really trying to work on this really hard. I have always dealt with fear negatively my whole life and it is one of the worst feelings in the world. It shows its ugly head at me quite often. As I was getting in the word this morning I stumbled upon Psalms 62:8 which says “Make Me your refuge by pouring out your heart to Me, trusting in Me at all times. WOW…I don’t know about you but that gives me so much hope and comfort. We need to remember to talk to Jesus all day long, not just in our prayer time we set aside but all day, especially when life issues arise on a daily basis. He does not want everyday problems to distract us, He wants us to watch Him confidently and see what He will do. When things go wrong we tend to react as if were being punished. So, instead of having a negative response to things that come up daily, let’s try to disguise difficulties as a blessing in disguise.
Lord help us all to try and put this in place in our lives, bringing us hope for everyday!
Doing life together
