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?
There are times in life when the electricity in our home goes out. Then panic sets in because we cannot operate those many things that we rely on. Yes for many it’s a nuisance and realizes that the power will come back on. Which leads us to a more interesting question?
What is the true power source in your life? Many believers, they will say that is an easy question to answer. But is it? In a world full of sin we can all easily fall into certain traps that take us away from our true power source. There is only one true power source in all of humanity and that comes from The Lord God Almighty. So where does your power source come from?
In a sad trend that started many years ago church’s are many times the rudest place around on Sunday mornings. Part of it is just the overall crassness of our culture in the past 30 years.
What happens is that someone who walks in has somebody they are intent on speaking to even if that person is speaking to someone else. So they just walk up and start talking without any regard to the person that was not the subject of their mission. Way too often the person that was “targeted” just walks off with that person and continues their talk. In doing so the other person is left standing there alone. The hidden message is that their life is not as important. One of the most common excuses is that ” well it’s Sunday morning and people understand”. By saying something like that they are saying that on Sunday morning in a house of faith it’s ok to be rude to others that they would never do in their daily lives? How interesting?
