Hello, loyal readers! In this blog, I want to talk about a subject that we sometimes do not want to admit. I am talking about the vicious cycles we may have that keeps us bound. At times, we are aware of them. While other moments, we are unconsciously ignorant of their presence.
How can we uncover this in our own lives? Are you looking at the situation that you are now living? Is it giving you joy, love, and peace? If the answer is a resounding NO! Then, it needs to be analyzed and address to change it.
Are you willing to confront, recognize, and change what is keeping you in that state of emotional turmoil? Be the person who breaks the cycle. In fact, YOU and only YOU can break it. Not only break it but end it for good! How?
It starts by taking inventory of what has happened to you. What are your thoughts and feelings that you are carrying internally? If they are negative in nature, don't ignore them. Admit them and let them go once and for all. Once you are void of them, choose to let God fill you with His peace, love, grace, and joy. You will NOT be the same!
Lori Deschene said it best, "If you were judged, choose understanding. If you were rejected, choose acceptance. If you were shamed, choose compassion. Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. Vow to be better than what broke you- to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from the heart, not your pain."
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Peace, Love, and Joy!
