In religions around the world, the word ” faith” is used time and time again. For many, they are pure of heart and we should respect that. The big question concerning your personal faith is are willing to roll the dice and see what happens in the most difficult of times? That is a question that only you can answer.
It’s easy to say you would but would you actually roll those dice?
There is a question that needs to be looked at in a closer manner? That question is the things that are said at the time of someone’s death. The question is are the things that are said at the time of someone’s death become trite? For some people with certain held beliefs they are not and should be respected. In respects, those comments have probably become trite. This is probably caused because people really don’t know what to say? Another factor that cannot be overlooked is that as a culture we never talk about death. Which is sort of odd when you think about it? Another thing that cannot be overlooked is comments like ” nobody is getting out of this alive”. Those comments have a tendency to make light of a very serious issue. Have these comments become trite? I think it’s something that needs to have a vibrate discussion over.
As believers often we get so concerned about others that we forget about ourselves. We think if we do then we are being selfish. Over time you start to have problems sleeping (unless your a man over 50 who have another reason for not sleeping). In all seriousness often this problem is caused by what many refer to as a tired soul. You twist and turn for some reason and you can’t figure out why? Many struggles with the concept of a soul in the first place because it is not something you can physically touch. It is something that uniquely yours and you should protect it. So how do you help with that process? The first thing is you need to learn how to say no during your day. Not being able to say no just drains everything out of you. Your soul can take only so much on any given day so you need to protect it. Sure there will be people who won’t be happy when you say no but you have to ask yourself one question?
What’s more important to you making someone else happy or giving your soul some help during your day?
