Eonugh is Enough

Sunday, October 05, 2008

Enough is Enough......I have finally learned or am trying to practice this, that I put my Faith first, then my family, then my finances, things will get better for me. Instead of looking at the things I don't have, I need to look at what I do have and be thankful towards God that I have what I have. And to look at making something good out of something bad. This is all so very, very hard fo me to do. I see the glass as half empty, not half full. I can say what I need to do, but doing it is another story. I have looked at things like "poor poor pitiful me. I am fat and I hate myself,my life sucks and yada, yada, yada..." Now I need to look at things like God made me with this challenge of losing weight for some reason. Maybe because it gives me one of the hardest challenges of my life, or for giving my SP, or to just give me overall health that I have never had in my life and he is saying that enough is enough, you have to get into shape. If you can do this, anything is possible, and God will be there with you every step of the way. I am also learnig to send satan away from my life. Increasing my faith will send satan packing from my life. Now the hard thing is to put this into action. I have had such a bad outlook on things and a failure at so many things that to just change overnight is by no means going to happen. I know it is a process and I need to be patient. I need to change so many years of negative thinking to being positive that I can do this, but only with the help of God. And to depend on him for so many things that I take on myself. I need to depend on him, like I do not now. I need to give him my troubles and let him work me through them. It is difficult to do, but I know I can do it and I will do it. (see already started)........... emoticon


Now that I have lectured to myself. What happens when your family is not positive towards you? I guess that is one of the reasons why Faith needs to be first in my life. To better handle family that has no faith.

With the way things are these days, no matter what happens at the election I think we are all in for more of a mess. (I am not a political person at all). I just know that we can not go one like this as a household or as a nation. The government won't help us middle class people, so whats left?

    Keep up the attitude that God will take care of you. My DH has a big problem with dwelling on the negative and getting down for days. I have been trying to get him to believe that God has a purpose and that he will take care of what needs to be taken care of. Keep up the Faith.
    God bless you.

    Wow! I've been reading your last four blogs. I think we all have times we feel down in the dumps, but maybe some of us aren't as willing to admit it. A new attitude of gratitude will help LOTS! Just remember that when the enemy comes knocking, to ask Jesus to get the door! emoticon
    I have to remind myself sometimes that He inhabits the praises of His people. Since I'm one of His, I want that "habitation" so I praise Him when I want to get negative. Do you have any Christian music? Turning on the praise music (even the Christian radio station) is another way to drive the enemy away.

    I'll be praying for you!
