I Can Do All Things....

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Lady2,

If you are having a hard time with hope and faith, its a sure sign you are relying on yourself and not trusting God. I do that too and it always sends me to a dark place. Sometimes when I am feeling that way I remind myself how rude I am being to the Lord. At those times, I am indulging in self pity and I am being selfish. After all he went through for me how can I fail to see the miracles in my life? That usually snaps me out of it and sends me back out there with a different attitude. What I want is not always what I need. He always gives me what I need. Sometimes there are things we are suppose to learn and thats why we are in a certain place.

This might be a bit preachy but Im gonna tell it anyways,

When I was a Sheriff Deputy I would see the same inmates coming back into the system and actually became friends with many of them. Lots of them only became religious when they were incarcerated. Many people see that as hypocritical but I don't. What I would tell them is that if the only time you are seeking God is while you are incarcerated?? Then Gods gonna let you keep coming back cause he misses you. That used to bring the inmates to tears and there simply is no argument to make.

If we continuously find ourselves at the same point over and over again and that is where we search for answers? Maybe God is just missing you??

We all get to the point that you are at from time to time. It's easy to pull out of it if you think. Sit down and think about what you have to be thankful for, your health, your kids, livin in a country where eventually, you can find a way to make what you need to survive long enough to get you back to where you're not just surviving.

In short look at everything that you do have instead of what you don't!! I've been pretty low more then once in my life but everytime I thought to do that it would pick me back up. Hang in there darlin and have faith that your faith and hope will return, man talk about cryptic!!! I never said I was a genius, Eye shaddup, and always remember, when you're really low and need a laugh come on here!! One of us screwballs is bound to make ya pee yourseld laughing!! And ya know what ?? Sometimes ya start laughing and then ya can't remember what put you in a funk in the first place!! Crazy but true, but so am I....crazy and true I mean!!!

Keep smilin , if nothin else think of me showing people what a viscious circle looks like, that outa do it!! Can't explain it, I'll have to show ya sometime!!!

peace

Thank you Seeme1st. I do angelic messanger cards to help me but it seems even those are not helping lately. I was just told the company i work for will be closing on June 30th. I thought i would retire from this job. I have been through so much since I left my husband, struggled, and struggled more. I have 2 kids to support with no job, Im in my 40's out looking for a job..it feels almost insurmountable this mountian i have to climb yet again. I will check out those books and thank you. Did you ever get an email from me about our ancestors? I did respond...am not sure you got it though.

I would say, Hope is BELIEVING something can happen, or change or come true, Faith is KNOWING it will happen, change or come true.


How do you lose both? Probably from being hurt, taken advantage of or lied to.

How do you get them back? Forget about your past, put a smile on your face, and keep on truckin is about all I know to do.

Hope that helps you out Lady, just my take on your questions.

Have a nice day!



great defination
