I Can’t Wait To Grow Up!

 


When we are young we often can’t wait to grow up! Here is a newsflash to you young folks out there.

Yes, you can because there is no turning back, and they’re certainly no do-overs. As we age our bodies don’t do what they used to do. Yet the most troubling part of getting old is that one day you look around and see many of those you have known for decades leaving this earth to go be with The Lord God Almighty.

 In the bigger picture isn’t that what this is all about anyway?

Your Soul Tired?

 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?

Hats Women Wear

While observing a unique woman yesterday as she stepped out of her car she looked so beat up. I suspect this woman puts on many hats each day. She could be a mother, wife, sibling, business owner, etc. I suspect she has times when she loves many of them. Yet she could be wearing so many hats that the most important one she often forgets.

The most important one is her taking care of herself. You see if she doesn’t do that then those other things don’t matter. So the question then becomes how can we help her? Those closest to her need to take a hard look at how she is spending her day? How much of it is spent wearing the hats she loves versus those things that others can help her with and by doing that giving her time to breathe. She has to feel comfortable knowing it’s ok to take time for her. So what happens if you don’t help her along her journey?

One day her loved ones will be standing by her bedside while she fights for her life. Maybe if others along the way would have helped her out she may have had more strength and will to continue the fight?

Having been there by that bedside all alone it’s a road you don’t want to travel!

Helping Others Is a Choice

Through the years on too many times to count the number of people who have offered to help is false words. If someone truly wants to help someone they will or the excuses will come. It’s a matter of priorities in their lives. It also leads to major trust issues. It would be better and more honest if people would just come clean and say they won’t help. It also leads people who truly need help to stop asking because of these false words!

Church Topic Off Limits In Public

Churches are supposed to be a place that all areas of the Bible get discussed. In the vast majority of cases that is true. The one that gets avoided like the plague is sex. Which is sort of ironic because that is the way most people come into the world. Let me be perfectly clear here. I am not condoning in any way the mistreatment of any male or female. Sure money gets talked about openly but sex that’s another matter. In a culture in which sex is everywhere ( I am not saying that is right.) Then the question becomes. Why?

My suspicion is that there is a certain puritanical aspect to it but the real reason is that children are around and the church has to be a safe place for them to be at all times. Throughout history, children have been abused in churches, to say the least. To act like it only happens in certain faiths is irresponsible thinking.

So sex is not openly talked about in churches and that’s the way it should stay!
