wisdom and compassion

18 07 2009

Just want to say that I am grateful for the wisdom and compassion of my friends. I am truly blessed. Read the comments on my last post and you will understand.

Sometimes, things… circumstances…  have happened so rapidly in my life that it makes my mind spin. Like a roulette wheel it turns and clicks as it considers the possibilities. will he recover? will I be a widow soon? what caused the set back? why did he fall? am i doing the right things to help him? what does God want out of all this? which is a life experience and which is a demonic assault? God, where are You in this? what is happening with our finances? click.. click.. click.

The spinning goes on and on. So I run to my Bible to remind me of what God says about Who He is and what my relationship to Him is all about.

  • He will never leave me or forsake me.
  • He has a plan for my life. A plan for good and not for evil.
  • My Heavenly father knows what I need.
  • His love is never ending and UNconditional.

Then, I run to AA to simplify it all for me.

  • One day at a time.
  • Turn my life and my will over to God as I understand Him.
  • Ask for help.
  •  K.I.S.S. > Keep It Simple Silly. ( I am not stupid.)
  • You are only as sick as your secrets. Tell someone you are hurting.

And then, I tie all that together with a big purple bow that says:

      JUST FOR TODAY, DON’T DRINK!

In times of extreme stress,I am bringing it all back to the basics. Thank God that I have the basics. Thank God that I have friends to remind me when my mind is tormented. Thank God that people pray for me (us) when I am too tangled up to pray.

Thank You God!
