Strength….. more than we ever thought we would have….
Looking back in my rear view mirror of my life, I often think “HOW did I ever manage to get through those times in my life? Reflecting back, do you ever remember a time that you were going through that seemed so tough? What did you draw on to get you through? What did you focus your heart on? Your mind? Or did you?
When I go back to these memories, I know that I somehow was given the ability to compartmentalize things- I was able to take out the emotion from the information- and somehow deal with that directly…. It was a survival strategy that I had been able to strum up from somewhere. And I realized I was Stonger than I thought.
But I found that in doing that – compartmentalizing things- after too long- I was really shutting down my internal emotion & closing off my heart. It was a very difficult time- it was years actually. Hard years where I just went through life on “autopilot.”
So, now looking back I am choosing to focus my mind & heart on different things. I know now that I truly am,
STRONGER THAN I THOUGHT….
I focus on what God has promised me- what his plan is for me and that thank GOD He has every detail of it!
I carry that with me. Focus on that and know that I am strong.
SO ARE YOU.
