Find Your Comfort 

Always remember that Jesus himself went through pain. He had been where you are and been through more pain than you could endure, ten times over. You Your never alone in this journey. I know it’s not easy and you want to give up but you must keep going. As long as you are waken up or maybe you never went to sleep, as long as you still have breath inside you; you must keep going. Your pain is not the end, your pain is an eye opener. 

Like Paul some of us are reminded every day that we are in constant pain and some of us can find the positive outlook on it, while others see it has a curse/touture. 

Mentally you must be strong, even when your body is weak, fore when the body is weak so can it trigger negative thoughts that cause you to fall right into all the discomforts in life. 

You must Find Your Comfort in the pain. Don’t just live with it and accept it, you must continue to find the root of it all. Is your pain as is the thorn in Paul? Are you accepting it to better yourself? Or have you accepted that your life was meant to be full of pain? 

Better yourself, your life, the smallest to the largest of things that need working on. This is the time to face truths that you’ve been lying to yourself about for years. What is God trying to change about you? Or in you/your life? 

Find Your Comfort… if it’s in your pajamas, then you proudly wear them and don’t feel guilty or worry about what others think. You have to think of yourself now. You are the one enduring the pain, not them. True friends and family that truly love you, will be right by your side and won’t judge you. Anyone who looks down on you, is not for you. Keep people around that allow you to feel peace, happiness and tranquility. 

Most importantly have people around you that motivate you to be a better you. Remember that you won’t see a difference unless you try. The pain may be there always, so if you’re going to hurt anyways, you might as well do what you enjoy. At least then you have a reason to why you’re in pain. Find Your Comfort. 


Stop Feeling Guilty

Stop Feeling Guilty

If you need rest, then rest. If you can’t right at the moment, that is okay, as long as you promise to come back and get it done. Don’t just say you can’t and quit, you can just not right now. If you can only do a little bit today, or only go one place, or only wash the clothes today. At least you got one thing done and out the way. Stop feeling guilty because you feel you owe more, or you’re not doing enough. Do you feel you’re doing enough in Gods eyes? Don’t give up and no matter how long it takes you, God will love you and be proud of you if no one else is.
Stop feeling guilty for your choices that you made to help yourself, you are no good too anyone broken and hurt. Family and friends should understand and I know most day they do but still question you. Keep yourself focused on making yourself better.
I always feel guilty for not working and watching my husband go off to work everyday, and at times I feel if I were to bring in income we would be a lot better. But that’s the thing, in my eyes we are ok and I’m basic needs are met, I have no need in being greedy. Also before we got married my husband said he was alright with me not working. It was mostly for me to focus on my writing as an author, but I was tried. From my teen and early twenties I worked and quit jobs left and right. I would start off strong and before I knew it depression and anxiety would take over me. It was a cycle that I had no control over no matter how hard I tried. I knew what my heart wanted, I wanted to be a wife, mother and author, that was my dream. Just not what plans were for me. I am a wife, wrote a little bit and self published but not up to professional standards. No kids and I feel guilty that I’m wasting my life, I’ve been trying to figure out my mission. I do t know if I will ever go back to work, but I know that money does not drive me, it doesn’t keep me or inspire me. I am, I want, I need to stop feeling guilty like I don’t bring anything to the table, because I may not bring money but I bring a lot more other things and I’m the only thing I’m guilty of is trying to become a better person in and out.

“Trust God and His Word to reveal to you when your guilt is false and your thinking is wrong.”

“Trust in Him What makes you feel guilty? What does God’s Word say about the situation? Stop believing your feelings that condemn you, and put your trust in His Word that convicts.”
