Life Lesson #3: Take Time

When things get crazy in your life, it is so crucial that you take time to release, relax, and reflect. This is such a good thing to do regularly especially, so you get your emotions out instead of bottling it all up.  If you were anything like me, its easy to just keep going and going without ever taking time for yourself.

When I would get to a breaking point, I learned that it was important for me to take time to get away from everything and take time seek the Lord.  Rememering that we can go to the Lord and lay everything down at his feet.

Psalm 68:19 (New International Version)Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Selah
This one literally saved my life, because it is also when God listened to my hearts cry and spoke to me and comforted me in my time of need.

Life Lesson #2: Choose Wisely:

Everyday we are asked to make choices big and small.  Some of those choices may seem insignificant while others may affect the next 10 years of your life.

Several years ago, I visited the Potters House for a Sunday night service and I heard Pastor TD Jakes say:

"Every decision you have made in your life good and bad big or small, easy or difficult, have brought you to this very place and time to bring you here tonight"


Life Lesson #1: Quiet your Stinkin' Thinkin'

Today, I was talking with a friend who is dealing with so much uncertainty, that they were feeling so overwhelmed, hopeless, and on the verge of depression.  I told them what I went through when I was in college, so many times I wanted to give up even on my life.  If it weren't for my trust in God's faithfulness and some  life lessons He taught me along the way I am sure I wouldn't be here today.  So after sharing them with my friend, I thought i might share them over the next few blogs, and hopefully it would offer some encouragement to those going though some uncertainty of their own.

Life Lesson #1: Quiet your Stinkin' Thinkin':

Even though things don't look good right now maybe the tunnel is so dark you can't even see an inkling of a light at the end of it, I promise you everything will work out!

One of the best ways I found in the midst of so much stress and anxiety is to THINK Positively

 I know that it may be difficult to  think positively with so much seemingly going wrong.  But does thinking negatively help you either?
