Turning the Page

It’s no secret that I’m a *bit* melancholic. Okay, so that’s an understatement. Hell, I bask in sadness the way a pig does in mud. Mostly I felt entitled to it. #millennial

Now, though…

I feel the Lord pushing me to move forward.

Telling me to stop rereading the same chapter over and over. To see what’s next.

  • No more passive-aggressive prayers.
  • No more Jim this or depression that.
  • No more self-pity.

Christ is the Author of my faith and I’m ready to see what comes next.

So I’m turning the page.

    I’ve struggled with sadness and regret to a very deep level, but my friend said to me recently ‘live in the solution, and not the problem.’

    Easier said than done, but generally it’s better to be realistically positive than unrealistically negative. You have a lot going for you.

  2. Thank you! I love waking up feeling grateful and thanking God for getting my through it all. Plus nothing gets the enemy’s panties in a wad quite like sincere thankfulness and awe of the Lord. 😀

  3. Taking stock of what might and could have been, helps you to put a praise on. For God has been good, keeping us alive with hope. Some are hopeless you know? We have Christ Jesus so we are already at an advantage over the enemy of our soul. Gratefulness drives out depressive thought always. Wish you God’s speed and grace for this transforming turnaround. Love!

  4. Thanks for sharing your victories with us! I have experienced and know many that have found permanent mental health through prayer. One time when I was up sobbing at night, I heard a clear thought (God) that said “you don’t have to be tempted by this”. In that sweet moment I realized that the loneliness, sadness was not me and wasn’t in me…it was coming to me from outside (i.e. carnal mind, darkness). When realized it wasn’t inside of me and I didn’t have to let it in, I was cured in that moment! It was a spiritual awakening you can say. You have the mind that was in Christ Jesus.
    Wishing you love and peace on your journey.
