Broken



There will be times that you will feel down and out & you will look for someone to lean on. Where do you turn? To people or to God? I've recently learned that first turn to God.

I recently had the experience of feeling so broken that I could no longer hold in how I felt and afterwards it felt like a dam had broke! I had cried tears and then I went to bed and the next morning, I woke up feeling like a new person!
That my friends is the work of God, to take your spirit while it is broken and make you whole again.
You just have to give Him all the pieces.

For me this feeling of wholeness came after I finally let out what I had been holding in. I finally trusted my husband with my deepest feelings. It came when I finally decided to trust God with everything in me. And I PROMISE you I feel so different. I feel whole.
At first I felt broken and in a state of despair. I felt like I had no one and couldn't trust anyone. And then I released to God and released to my spouse.
Now I feel ready to take on the whole world.

The principle I'm trying to convey is to trust God. And to know you can't do everything on your own. Many times people can't help you..Only GOD CAN HELP YOU. That is why its said the impossible is possible with God.

Stand

If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.
SO in light of this information. Choose to stand for truth, for God's Word. Choose to stand to always do what's right.
God himself says that vengeance is His and His alone. If we want justice we do it the right way, pursue it legally and then take it and leave it in God's capable hands. Trusting that He will justify the right and will serve justice.
That's the BEST we can do for any and every situation. Getting angry over the situation and trying to get justice on your own is NOT trusting God and His Word.

Pray for those who hurt you, pray for those who hurt others. Pray for those who sin and have no remorse.
That is the best you can do PRAY and pray sincerely without asking for harm to befall them. Pray that God has mercy upon them.

Then you STAND. Stand tall and stand firm on God's will. Whenever you are having negative thoughts or the urge to do something not in God's will, you stand firm and quote scripture.

And even if people, man's government does not offer justice rightly. You stand firm that God will serve justice. God can touch a person where you or I never could. God can touch the mind so that there is no peace. God can turn that person over satan and allow satan to torment that person for their wrongdoing. So pray for mercy for the wrongdoer. Ask God for mercy.

And repent for every negative word towards the wrongdoer. You may not quite understand, but we are not charged to anger nor hatred but to love and compassion. This is becoming of God's children.

Vengeance is mine said the Lord.

Words

Everything that comes forth from your mouth whether it be vocally or via posts/statuses will be tested especially if they are not true. <<--- This was told to me. Granted I knew this however I'd always thought that if you want things to be so, speak them into existence so that they will become so.
So I may not feel this way however I am speaking against those feelings and calling better feelings into existence (ex.).
I say this because many of us have to realize the two-part fold. Once you speak something into existence that does not exist (better feelings, better relations) you will be tested to see if you will really uphold what you spoke. To see if you are truly committed to bringing forth it into existence.

Life is about accountability. Are you accountable for your actions? Are you accountable for your feelings? I ask these two questions because people in general are good for seeing the flaws and faults in another but rarely do they look in the mirror and point our the flaws in themselves that is visible to everyone else. We as people are good for not taking excuses or reasons for another's behavior however we expect our excuses and reasons to be taken at face value. Your feelings can play such dirty tricks on you! Have you feeling like you are unloved or unworthy when you are BOTH. Your feelings will have you so up and down till its not funny. I know this first hand and I am currently working to reign in those feelings so that I am NOT controlled by them. I don't know about others however I don't like feeling on top of the world one day and then the next week I am in the dumps. NO! I want to live abundantly every single day!

I remember reading that every single thought we have, we need to make it stand accountable to Jesus and the Lord's standards. Make every thought and feeling we have obey Christ. I think this type of action alone could greatly improve life's quality. So that's what I've decided to do to combat these 'feelings'.

So far its been good, at times my flesh is weak and unwilling. However I must always get on the prayer line for strength and peace. Actually for ALL the fruits of the spirit. They are ALL greatly needed. And then right when I can't take the feelings, God sends me peace of mind and I can relax and think rationally.

If you struggle with your words and feelings aligning according then prayer and scripture are your cure.

Here are a few verses that are of a GREAT help to me:

Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. (2Cor. 10:5)
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Ph. 4:6)
Finally brothers, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Ph. 4:8)




Peace and blessings to you
