How many agains can there be?

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

I am so tired of beginning again. Thankfully, this time I'm not undoing any further damage...that was taken care of before I had the strength to say go again. I MUST, MUST, MUST identify the problems.
The weight/overeating is not the disease, but the symptom.
Denying my needs.
Pretending to be superwoman.
Okay, Lord...now what? You and I both know that sharing that tidbit where it needs to be shared is not an option right now. I won't say YOU can't make it one, but I'm dealing with reality here. I need to go to YOU with my issues, and not anyone else.
Since I know who I am in Christ, it was a lie from the devil that I needed to feel accepted. YOU accepted me, and that's really all that matters. I will trust you to change those hearts and give me what I need when I need it.
Admitting that I am not in control of much at all is difficult. A truth so obvious I ignored it. Couldn't see the forest through the trees.
It mostly sucks that I can't seem to do this (the right way) by myself. I guess no man (not even me) is an island.
I need to keep positive, encouraging material before me always...lest I become distracted. AGAIN.

    I have been given so many agains in my life it is to many to count. I finally figured out why God put me on this plant after 52 years of being here, and nearly 5 near death experences, and all my do overs, I finally figured out my purpose. God is a very patient being (even though he is not a being), are time and his are to different things 52 years here could be a blink of an eye in heaven. That we will not know until we get there. So now I am working on my story, so I go tell people what I went through, to get where I am now at 54. If I can help just 1 person it will make it all worth while. emoticon Mary

    I agree with BECCASINGSLEAD. "Again" can be wondrously positive: the sun rose again, my husband said he loved me again, God forgave me for that stupid thing I just said/did/thought again. Only the Adversary tells us that we are washed up, unforgivable, not worth giving another chance to. You're God's creation: His creations always have an Again in them. Be gentle with yourself. emoticon

    There can be as many agains as you need. The Lord can give you the strength you need so don't be afraid to keep getting up and starting again as many times as it may take. Hang in there!
