SOMETIMES ITS NOT ABOUT YOU
Wednesday, April 28, 2021
I have a dear friend who has been going through so much emotional and physical pain, not to mention mental health issues and spiritual battles. She has no one outside of her husband to confide in. The drs have her on SO MUCH MEDICATION! I just recently became reunited with her after SEVERAL YEARS. She is so afraid that I'm going to turn my back on her like most everyone else has throughout her life. She's a very rooted Christian with strong beliefs but lately the enemy has made her feel worthless, doubt that her life has a purpose and driven her to think she's completely crazy. I have been a Christian since I was 10. I find myself not being " Christ like " enough for people in my congregation to accept me. I let the enemy into my head and have been out of church and out of GODS way for several months. So, long story short.. over the last few weeks my friend and I have been talking and helping each other back to where we need to be. Yesterday, she got the ok from her drs to quit many of her meds that she has been on for years. She didn't see that they were really helping her out. HER DR AGREED that she COULD QUIT THEM ANYTIME WITH NO EXPECTED SIDE EFFECTS.. so she calls me today, after going MONTHS with no sleep.. She slept last night so well that she didn't hear her husband leave for work this morning. She has energy today to get out and walk around the park 5-6 times ( about 1 mile per lap). She has not been feeling jittery and nervous and fearful. She has had no thoughts of suicide or homicide ( which last week she went to a mental hospital for those thoughts). She is enjoying her FREEDOM from the medications society has had her full of for years! All it took was spending time listening to her and helping her figure out where she was, how she got there, and how to get back towards where she wants to be. PRAYERS to our living GOD, who hears his children and is out tower and our HOPE. We are planning o do a daily bible study and prayer session together and also a morning walk. ITS MORE THAN HOW I FEEL. ITS MORE THAN WHATS GOING TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER. ITS ABOUT OTHERS! ITS ABOUT HELPING EACH OTHER! THATS WHAT MAKES YOU THE BEST VERSION OF WHO YOU CAN BE! BE BLESSED TODAY AND BE SOMEBODY'S BLESSING EVERYDAY! Look past yourself..when you do you'll open up a whole new world, a better world!
