I'm trying!

I

 

I am trying…Here I am again, depressed and unmotivated. I don’t understand why I visit this place over and over again. I am sad, I get it. Things are a bit strained, I got laid off from my job…well not laid off exactly…

I am working currently for delayed pay. I know that I am doing what God requires of me. He gave me this job and the economy cannot effect what God has supplied. I firmly believe that. I am not worried about money, God has that in hand. So I donot believe that my mood dive has much to do with this developement. I see it as my reasonable service to God and my Pastors and to my church family…and I am happy to do it.

My mood…apparently is hormonally based again. It just really feels so intense right now. I don’t want to do anything, and except for my meetings I did nothing yesterday! And I am not happy about that fact. So giving in to my apathy does not make things better, and having to do them pisses me off…

Oh the joys of the human psyche.

Colossians 3:8-11

8 But now also put these things out of your life: anger, bad temper, doing or saying things to hurt others, and using evil words when you talk.9 Do not lie to each other. You have left your old sinful life and the things you did before.10 You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you. This new life brings you the true knowledge of God.11 In the new life there is no difference between Greeks and Jews, those who are circumcised and those who are not circumcised, or people who are foreigners, or Scythians. There is no difference between slaves and free people. But Christ is in all believers, and Christ is all that is important.

I am going to stand on this portion of this scripture…because these pains I am having are growing pains. I determine to develope into what and who God intended me to be!

You have left your old sinful life and the things you did before.10 You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you.

I will do my very best to put the things behind me that are no longer me and reach for the things of Christ!

I thank You Father that You sent Your Word. I thank You that the Word healed and delivered me from ALL destruction, therefore I cannot be destroyed. In Jesus’ mighty name, AMEN.

Blessings!

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

One thought on “Colossians continued…

  1. I love the picture here… so true that only God can heal – I’m not completely caught up on all of your blog entries, but truly thankful that you share this journey as this season upon us does tend to bring depression on.

    Thanks for sharing, HL
