Creeping In Our Lives

What do we allow into our lives?

I have a few things I want out but they keep coming in.

What's creeping into our lives?

What are we allowing?

Are we allowing things that keep us from God?

I have a habit of laying in self pity, I hate it. It's hard to get out of..if you all could pray for me over that.

I WOULD love to have my hubs more traveled and read.

How do we get out of this misery?

I have had so many trials and storms but I CAN'T figure out there are so many Christians that seem to think they do it right. What is right?

My mind doesn't feel right, but it seems at times I can write, getting it all out helps a lot.

How do we get the creepies out of our lives?

I do turn to God but it seems like creepy things come back, like brain fog, not remembering, self pity, oh yes I Read the bible, and I pray, sometimes lately I just feel like my prayers are hitting the ceiling and not getting to God's throne, sometimes I JUST want it all to end.

So, I will keep praying, keep reading and keep writing..

Love BettyB

Jesus says He is my refuge, I pray I CAN always remember that..

You are not alone in the self-pity Betty, I’ve had my share of pity parties. I will pray for you. Sounds like we are in the same boat – maybe we could row together on this. Sensing you have a heart for God, may I stir up your pure mind of remembrance to this passage?

For the time would fail me to tell of… (those) who through faith… escaped the edge of the sword… Others… were slain with the sword. …of whom the world was not worthy.

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 11:32-12:2

God bless you. Thank you for sharing your heart. Vote up, useful and beautiful. ~ eddie

Very honest hub. Blues can rule many days. I've learned that when a very dark and difficult day comes it's usually a preparation for a beautiful event.

No one envies something bad. Evil can't attack something already bad. Brave through this knowing you're good and worth fighting for. Don't give in to bad thoughts. They'll pass.

One good thing already happening is your sharing your wonderful writing talents here. Don't stop. We need you.

Self pity ruins us and takes us further from God... Surrender is the opposite, trust, let him have your pain and you rest..did He not say cast your burdens on me? I Know what you are going through.. you are aware.. read 2Cor 3-5 with understanding and put it to practice. He never asks you to do what you can't. Remember that he is your strength... God bless and may His peace reign in you as you grow in knowledge of him!!

Nice hub, when it comes to your prayers and your answers that YOU want ...we have to remember one, that the Lord answers prayers on time (not when we need them) and the answers are not always what we want, but what "will" of the Lords. The one thing I can say is he may not come when I want him but he is ALWAYS on time. When asking for prayers to be answered he already knows what you are need of but it is done according to his will. Hang in there don't you dare give up he did not bring you this far to leave you one, two he never gives you more than you can handle (may not fell that way but he knows his creation) and three he says stop asking sometimes it's about telling the lord what you want him to do remember he already promised to never forsake you (he is the one and only one who does not break promises)...some time it is a test of our faith and when you continuously ask and not remind of what was promised to you it can be taken as you doubting...stand firm on his word and be upfront in what you want him to do...as the old hymn says Call him up... and tell him what you want!

nice to meet you all,

Don't we all wonder about all the bad things that happen to us? It's a sad fact of life. Good thing, there is a God that we can turn to--He's big enough to carry all our struggles and fears. Keep hubbing, you'll break through. Take care and many hugs.

Hi Betty, Just wanted to drop a note to let you know that I have been where you are .. for years actually, on and off for years. Part of my issue had to do with health (brain fog) and part was my stressing about the gravity of the situations I was facing.

I felt like you .. my prayers were not reaching the throne of God. But they were as many of your friends have already shared scriptures and the fact that He is the only one the keeps his promises. It's so true. The enemy likes to create doubt and tells us lie's. A practice I have applied this past year is to counter 'the lie' with The truth. Speaking it out loud helps your sub-conscious to catch on to a new way of thinking and when you interrupt the 'lie' with His truth it gradually changes your feelings.

His word is powerful, I know you know that already. But the power of it astounds me .. it is LIFE changing.

Sending Hugs and prayers dear one.

I voted Up and Beautiful. I as well have been there too and now when it creeps my way - I think of the many who are much worse off than I am and pray for them. If I pray for others who are experiencing bad days - it helps put that 'blue' mood in perspective. In these days when so much can bring you down - don't worry - it is human and perfectly normal. Keep on - keeping on. God Bless - How come no one ever says, May Jesus Bless You?

How do we get the creepies out of our lives? GRATITUDE! That's right gratitude. When we understand and become grateful for what has happen in our lives, thanking God anyway for our trials, you will see the reasoning of all and the message. Once knowing the message you then will understand why. Remember, there is always a MESSAGE. Love you sis, always and when you get some time, come visit. You know to that you can always e-mail me and we can talk.
