Hurts!

By Sandra McKinley

2013-01-06

If you have ever been cut you know that it hurts, right? ... But when you are cut the cells rushes to that cut and begins a healing process ... then next thing you know there is a scab there but if you pick at it the wound is then exposed again ... but if you leave it alone there will be new skin there ... there may be a scar but sometimes it'...s unnoticeable ... well when God cuts people out of your life know that it will hurt ... but when that happens the cells (God's Spirit and the angels) come rushing in to begin the healing process ... but if we pick at the scab (whatever or whoever it is) it reopens the wound and you are exposed again ... but if you leave it alone and allow the Spirit to heal you then you will be new ... He makes everyone and everything new again ... and yes, there may be scars but it won't be noticeable

 

Hopes and Dreams!

When the fulfillment of your hopes and dreams is dependent upon the actions of someone else or circumstances you will be on a long emotional rollercoaster. If you are on an emotional rollercoaster now remember you can only change or control you and get off. As one of my co-workers said yesterday, "I am so done with IT!" It's time to be done with it.............and gain peace!
 

Life Is No Rollercoaster Ride!

By Angela Willingham

2012-07-09

A friend once told me that life is not supposed to be a rollercoaster ride.  Honestly at the time she said it I did not understand what she was telling me.  I kind let it pass right over my head.  As I have seen myself growing and maturing spiritually, I now understand.  We are not supposed to be led by our emotions.  When we find ourselves going up down and all around it is because our emotions are taking control and getting us going in a direction that is not true or may not be.  I remember all of the speculation and analyzing that I allowed my mind and emotions to take me through.  The rollercoaster ride was caused by my mind and emotions.  I have since learned that God is definitely not the author of confusion, satan is the father of lies and is always trying to keep us spinning.  In my mind I have to take a stand and in my emotions I also have to take a stand.

The question I ask, before I dismiss nonsense that would have sent me over the edge before-How would I know that?  If it is not something I know to be true or factual, it is more easily dismissed.  Guess what, even if I do know if to be factual or true, but it does not line up with the Word of God or His promises, I can dismiss that also.  There is a freedom that comes from dismissing the tricks and lies of the enemy.  The truth is that he does everything he can to operate on our minds and emotions to keep us off balance and on the rollercoaster.  But we have the ability and the authority to shut him down.  

2 Corinthians 10:3-5:

   3 -6The world is unprincipled. It's dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn't fight fair. But we don't live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren't for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.

If you base your decisions on your emotions or allow your mind and emotions to run rampant, you will never get off the rollercoaster and while rollercoasters may seem fun at the amusement park, when it is your life, it gets old quickly.  Stop the ride!!!!

 

When I originally saw this it said If A Relationship Has to Be Secret, You Shouldn't Be In It!

I often pick items that are interesting to me from a ministry perspective. This was one. The reason it peeked my interest was because of a relationship I had with a sister friend years ago. She was involved in a relationship with a gentleman and no one knew about it. Because no one knew, no one respected or honored the position she held with him. She was just another woman in the room. It caused her to become suspicious of other women, always wondering about their motives and not allowing her to develop healthy relationships with them, when the truth was they did not know, so they were continually walking around her. It was cute at first but eventually this took a toll on her emotional health and she got to a point where she did not feel she could trust anyone, including him and the relationship failed. There is a difference between being private, people know you are in a relationship, but keep your business to yourself and being secret. If you are in a secret relationship please make sure you are taking care of your emotional health. Our ministry objective is to see you fit emotionally, relationally, spiritually and physically. You are important to us so please take care of you.

Love and Blessings to you.
