Taking it one day at a time

Hello people

I am at my desk, just got into work but could not resist the urge to just jot down a few sentences. The title of the blog today just kind of sums up how i am feeling these days in regards to dealing with Alan's death. Some days are better than others but i am taking it one day at a time. I feel sad, weak, tired and discouraged but i choose to encourage myself with the Word of God. I think in dealing with life's situations most of us have been taught that we should 'speak the word', pray, praise, worship e.t.c which i also believe that we should do but i also think that we should start with admitting where we are. We should be free to admit that we are sad, hurt, discouraged e.t.c with what it seems life has handed to us, when we can admit that we are sick then we can go on further and get our healing.
I believe God gave us emotions, not for us to be ruled by but for us to use. I am tired of acting, Christianity is not about religion, 10 commandments, do's and donts... it is about a relationship with a living being who lives on the inside of me and knows everything about me and strong relationships must be REAL..
Anyway, i've gotta get back to work now but i just want to encourage anyone out there to SMILE, no matter how the day is going, no matter what problems are out there, remember He has promised never to leave nor forsake you. Even when you do not hear His voice, be comforted in knowing that the Lord is there with you because there is no place on earth that you could possibly hide from Him.

This so true - strong relationships must be real. There must be honest communication or there can be no real trust. Very important lesson to learn. Thank so much for this reminder.
