Stop Making Excuses...do not be your own victim.

Day 1: I often find myself playing tragedies over in my head, wondering how I or loved ones would behave if something terrible happened. I also tend to reflect on the negative past, reflecting on whether I was wrong or misbehaved; thinking over my guilt’s, replaying my bad behavior and reactions…letting other’s negative behavior replay in my mind. Tormenting myself with worry, grief, and loss. I realize now that this is all wrong…I need to focus on my blessings and look to the future with hope and faith in God. Jeremiah ch. 17:5-6 says: Thus saith the Lord: cursed be the man, and marketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. So basically if I don’t follow the Lord then I will be lonely and unable to see my blessings. Pretty much sums me up now! Without God, I will be unfulfilled. Well, I already feel this way so what could I lose giving God a chance!?!? Jeremiah ch. 17 7-8 says: Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the river, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when the heat cometh; but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of the drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. WOW! What a promise! If I trust in the Lord and place my hope in him, I will be blessed and fulfilled; not even taking notice when the heat comes and never left without his blessings. Darn right I want that! I’m all in!! I’ve gone far too long without joy in my heart and trust that God will bring it back. Who wouldn’t want such a gift?!? Bring on the rain of love, happiness, and blessings :) 
