pulling strength from within
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
"Lord make me a bird so I can fly far, far away from here." This keeps playing over and over in my head today. Actually the past few days. What also is playing in my soul is the serenity prayer:
"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Sometimes just keeping these types of quotes in mind and holding them in your soul helps you get through a day. A moment.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
"The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy." ~Jim Rohn
I need to get back on that joy track and walk past the sadness I am feeling. Emotional scars are so much deeper than the ones on the skin. And it is hard to heal from these wounds when both parties aren't on the same page. But I will find strength again to move past this. I am down now, but I wont let things keep me down. I have too much to strive for.
