Just when you think it is gone it resurfaces. You know the it that gets you lost in your mind. The it that stirs up old anger and hurt, happiness, joy, resentment, stability and all the other things that you can think of. It is the “it” that stirs up you emotional bucket. You think that you have dealt with it, grown from it and left it in the past.
SMACK! Wow that hurt. “It” hits you right in the face. Why do you think that this item can show it’s head at the most inopportune time? I really don’t have the answers at all. I will tell you that in my life I know that it represents the enemy attacking me. The enemy knows how to get under my skin and push me away from the track. The enemy knows how to get me in my own mind and thinking. You see I am a thinker and that is very powerful. It can be powerful in a positive way and it can be powerful in a negative way! Like the book says, “As a man thinketh.” That is right “it” has infiltrated the mind and is trying to eat away at all the good things that I am working toward. Things that I think will have the impact on the lives of others that I so desire. “It” wants me to start looking at the past. “It” knows that if I am looking backwards I cannot move forward with all the blessing my Father has placed before me. Heck I cannot even see those blessings if I am looking backwards.
Two Practical Ways to deal with IT!
- I like to write. Start a journal and look at all the things that you are grateful for when it comes around. Find out what it is that you have going for you and focus on that and pay “it” no attention……….
- Talk it out with a friend that would understand. One that will not judge but will listen and be empathetic to why this “it” is such a virus in your life……..
I don’t what “it” is in your life but I know that you have one. Everybody has an “it” that plaques them and resurfaces when our guard is down. I would be interested in knowing how you deal the “it” in your life and I am sure other readers would benefit from your honesty……..;
