A little reminder for when or if I get in a rut again..
I hope that you are doing well, I just wanted to send you a quick email.
I was reading my daily text this morning and came across a scripture in Proverbs.
"Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but a good word cheers it up."
Lately I have been feeling boggled down with the daily anxieties and worries that I have.
I’ve been isolating myself from those that only wish to help me and bring me closer to Jehovah.
I have not been holding myself accountable for my actions.
I know that in order for me to have a close relationship with my heavenly father I have to work on it. Like James 4:8 says, If I draw close to God he will draw close to me. Jehovah wants me to have a relationship with him, but he won’t force it.
So, that scripture this morning resonated with me. If I get so internally wrapped up in my own problems. Constantly looking at the negatives and worrying about things..Circumstances that I cannot control my heart will always feel heavy, but if I go to my meetings, converse with brothers and sisters in the hall and make a spiritual family for myself. By truly putting Jehovah first in my life and trusting in him and living by bible principle I will do nothing but benefit my life and live up to the potential of who Jehovah wants me to be.
I can’t tell you how many times I have cried in this past week, but last night I cried tears of happiness and relief. I had a sense of clarity yesterday. I’ve realized and accepted my actions and I took a step back and really looked at what I have been doing.
Are you available for study tomorrow?
This is how I felt on December 3rd,2013..
I had previously had a lengthy conversation with Joel about his concerns and mine as well about how I was living my life.. This email was an epiphany of some sort to my bible study teacher, a way for me to own up to my faults. Accept them for what they are and decide to make a change and do something that is incredibly important to my spiritual well being, serving and living as one of Jehovah’s people.
