Help Get Me Out Of Here!

Close your eyes.. count to three... Now open!

Close your eyes.. count to three… Now open!

I understand where you R. Been there and at times will find myself going back there. Where? Where no one wants to be alone, where there are people and yet they don’t see or hear you, and yet you feel alone. Where everyone talks about what they want to talk about and hear and yet when it’s your turn, you’re left alone. You live in a house filled with people or a mind filled with voices and yet you feel alone. People are everywhere and still there’s no one to talk to…

So you walk around like a big tear drop waiting to fall. Knowing if and when you fall the rain will come and wash your tear drops away. So you hold back and keep going knowing one day the sun will shine and dry all your tears away…..

It seems as though it’s hard getting out of there. You get there and realize the grass is not as green over there. If you didn’t go there, you wouldn’t be here. Now can you see yourself getting here from there?

Help and get me from there to here!

Life may try to flip us from one side to the other. Even though I sleep on my right side, I find myself turning on to my left side. After lying there for a few hours, I managed to turn back onto the right side and all the time while laying on the side that’s uncomfortable I asked myself …”why am I sleeping on the side that’s uncomfortable”? my answer .. “the side that’s comfortable to sleep on got uncomfortable”. When we get to comfortable, the comfortable becomes uncomfortable and can cause us to switch sides. If you choose the right side to find comfort … He promises to keep you in perfect peace as long as your mind stays on Him…… for further discussion read Isaiah 26:3

Where are you?  How did you get there? 

It’s as simple to get out of there as it was getting here.

 

 

Describe yourself by color ….

Self-Help, Color choices

What color would you use to describe yourself ? 

There are many colors to choose.  So many, I truly don’t know where to start.  Let’s say I start with a recognizable movie title, “Lady sings the Blues”.  Does this mean we associate the color blue with a life filled with drugs, depression, drama, gifts and talents that were used and abused?  Or does it mean we color the day blue because of fear and hope intertwined that’s smoldering out a hopeless fire that’s never had an opportunity to burn.

All the fire inside heating up passion, that never gets a chance to ignite, from the gift of love.  Love is there in us; we were created with love.  Somewhere somehow, it was lost or never felt it was given.  This is a hard one to figure out for most, yet simple for myself to think about.

May I ask a question?  Do you love yourself?  To love, we must know love.  Love can’t be measured, only felt from a natural reaction when we act.  The organic roots have been lying dormant attempting to root to find ways around roots that are connected and not growing love, joy, passion, peace and wealth.  Only growing into a ball of confusion, if you don’t start pruning now, these roots will grow together, becoming one.

When we remain withdrawn from letting others into our life, we’re begging to find shelter elsewhere.  We want to be comfortable in our own space.  I understand, if it’s a place filled with love and you can’t wait to get there, if it’s a place to escape from reality and we make choices like drugs, alcohol, or letting others abuse us for sexual exploitation, male or female, remember, we always go back to reality. Even if we choose to live or die, either way, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!

We must return home (reality) sooner or later.
