Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 New International Version (NIV)
A Time for EverythingThere is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
LEARN TO BREAK IT ~
Wrong thinking can come easy at times. The great wonder of why and why is this happening to me. I want to be like other people and have it all, but do they really have it all? I can think of many famous people who seem to have it all and ended up taking their lives. To much pain on earth and it's the only way out. I'm here to tell you that is not the answer. Taking your life is NOT what God wants and not a good plan. It leaves those left behind broken and hurting. Jesus came to save us from sin, from our troubles and will give us a new start.
Stop for a minute and think about one positive person in your life. Got that person in your mind now? When ever thoughts come, contact that person. Call them or text them when times get too much to handle. Reach out of yourself and get help. Don't let those negative thoughts comsume you! The devil is real and his plan is take you out of this world his way. Positive and negative can not rest together. Good and evil can not rest together. Right and wrong can not rest together. Faith and fear can not rest together. Get it, just like the scripture above, there is a time for all things. We must choose one thought to rest with and I choose the postive one, I hope you do too!
I have been through alot in life. It all really began when I was a kid (8-10) and just wanted a friend. I spent alot of time alone and in my room. In that room I spoke to my stuff animals about growing up to be KIND and to teach other kindness. I've been through my own depression times, didn't believe God was on my side and my voice became silent. It seemed as if I spoke, it didn't make a difference anyway. But today, oh my friend today I stand stronger in God and I fight negative thoughts. I know who I believe in (GOD) and I know that his plan unfolds. It's my own choices daily that makes a difference. It's your own choices daily that makes a difference.
Look at some beautfiul words: Believe, hope, best, truth, compassion, love, peace, and overcomer. It is nice to hear these words and there are too many great words to think about in life. When negative words come, just pop in some positive words. God has a bigger plan for your life than you might think. Depression is real and often take a medical doctor to help a person. There are many great counselor's too that can help you. Maybe it's not you, but you know someone who needs help, go ahead and guide them to a doctor, counselor and help.
A time for all things ~ God has created you to be unique and live a beautiful life. Go to his word (Bible) and begin to read. Stories of overcomers and people who walked through some hard things. The outcome is different in each story. The outcome of your life and my life is different too.
Let's pray: God I thank you for a new day. A day that brings thoughts into our minds. Help us to focus on the positive things you have said to us and who we are in you in you. Words of other humans can tear us down and we feel defeated. But you are a God of no defeat. You came to rescue us from ourselves and from sitautions of life. This is a great day for new beginnings and planting hope with our hearts. I am agreeing with the readers of my blog for their situatiosn today. For this hope to rise higher than ever and believing big. Let is NOT be an option to feel defeated but to feel your (God) power this day. A power of love, grace, hope, peace and so much more. AMEN
2 Timothy 1:7 King James Version (KJV)For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Purpose this a good day and know that my prayers continue for you, your famiiy and friends.
