oh dear Tumblr;
where do i begin? it has been some time now &i guess to sum up all that has been going on.. i can say, God REMAINS good! im now in school, trying to finish up this CJ degree i started a whiLe ago. everything is off to a great start &im just trying to focus on KEEPING it that way. im actually at school right now. LOL. im not sure when my Last post was but other than that, i’ve come in contact with an oLd friend. right now, i don’t know where things Lie but im okay with that. one day at a time, as aLways.
im still very much keeping to myseLf. i don’t hang out, i don’t go out. i don’t even keep in contact w/peopLe i used to. everyday i feel Like im changing &that’s a GREAT thing. i feel Like im one step cLoser to where i wanna be. ironically, i don’t even KNOW where i wanna be but i do know where i don’t wanna be. so, everything seems to be Looking up. i’ve had minor setbacks &downfalls &backsLides but, today’s a new day &i won’t dwell on things i can’t fix.
Lately, i’ve been trying to teach myseLf on how to NOT worry about things that don’t effect me. big or Little. Learning on how to just say what it is &Let it be. speak my peace &keep it movin. done trying to get peopLe to see things my way or agree with me or even “support” me. i can &will do what i gotta do. trying to stay stress free. Letting unnecessary probLems Lie &digress. (does that make sense? *shrugs). Learning to hoLd my tongue when i SHOULD &avoiding all possibLe “drama”! i haven’t figured it all out &im sure i never will but, im fine with that. i guess.. im jus trying to GROW UP!
yesterday i went through a Lot of my oLd bLogs &i just Laughed. i can’t beLieve who i was this year. i know where i was coming from but to see how i Let the simpLest things get me down.. never again. some posts were, of course, dramatic! but then again, that’s just me. we’re rapidLy approaching 2012 &i will NOT be who i was. (&we’ll save all that for another entry, another time.)
recentLy, i’ve reaLized that i can’t pLan my Life out. i do it all the time in my head though. im forever Looking into the future &trying to pLay out scenes from my Life then but, im working on Letting that go because i’ve wasted Lots of time trying to get “there” &have aLways faiLed. i’ve come to the concLusion that He, has a greater pLan for me. for me.. and for him. even if our pLans don’t incLude each other.
i Look back &i’ve done a LOT of growing up.. but still, im not even aLmost done.
—-now my mind’s bLank so i guess i’ll cut it here. Lol. until next time..♥ 1 Notes / Tue Dec 13th, 2011 ≡ reblog
Bible Verses for Hard Times
As believers in Jesus Christ, we can trust our Savior and turn to him in hard times. God cares for us and he is sovereign. His Holy Word is sure and his promises are true. Take some time to ease your worries and calm your fears by meditating on these Bible verses for troubled times.
Dealing with Fear
The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid? (NIV)
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (NIV)
Loss of Home or Job
One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
and set me high upon a rock. (NIV)
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (NIV)
My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing. (NIV)
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. (NLT)
Dealing with Stress
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
Overcoming Financial Worries
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
“Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (NIV)
