For The Ever Changing Seasons

It’s stirring up inside, I can feel the discomfort.It’s scary.I know change is coming.How do you prepare for it? When times get unbearable and you’re on the brink of major life changes, I found comfort in a few different areas and I want to share them with you.

First and foremost, dive into a life of prayer.One way to do this is by waking up to prayer meditations.At first I didn’t know what medication was, I didn’t understand how to do it.Then I realized medication is solely focusing on one thing.For example, when you worry about your bills, this means every thought typically wraps around money.So medication is the same thing but you focus your thoughts on one positive thing.When you wake up, open your bible and just read one verse.Think about what the verse means.What did God want you to take away from this verse?What did this mean for lives back then and how can you apply the teachings to your life now.Spend time with Him and His word.Another thing that can help with your prayer life…

When 2012 began I was slowly coming down from a natural high set by the year prior. 2011 was probably one of the best years of my life. I met and fell in love with a wonderful man. I felt feelings I never knew existed. I tasted true love and felt butterflies in my stomach you only hear about in love stories. It's fair to say the beginning of 2012 was somewhat of a twilight zone. The "Coming to Reality" part was difficult and I tackled my first set of road blocks empty handed. I was knocked down repeatedly, until I found myself in the bed with overwhelming feelings of hopelessness.
