THE SHRINK'S HEART

I sit here on a beautiful, autumm, Sunday morning. I should have been just getting home from church, but I didn't go this morning. I did take Indivi for a short walk down the street and I worshipped the Lord and put my burden into His hands. I know He will take care of it. There is no thing in this world that can take care of it. Only Him. And He is able. Now I can go on with the day in joy and peace. But there is still a lingering sadness, a bit of depression, the urge to cry. I'm not sure if it is for myself or if it is for the one who is bound in miserable hatred and bitterness. It is hard to watch someone slowly dying inside from such a horrible bondage. It is hard to live with someone with this horrible bondage. So maybe it's a bit for both of us that I feel this sadness. I will place this sadness in His hands as well. He will take of that too. I will put all of these things that try to rob me my joy into His hands. And I will have a God filled day, a day of peace and praise, because the Lord is working on my behalf and is taking care of everything.

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God that transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6,7

I am finding so many troubled today. I pray for you. I always request prayer for my phamily and myself. We are trying to move and the stressfulness of it all is enough to drive one mad! I like the verses you chose today. I am thinking and praying for you. Blessings Anne

God's message for all of us today is that He is here. He is faithful. He is true to His promises. Reach out to Him and find peace.

I so needed this today.
I've placed my concerns for a loved one in God's Hands but it is so hard watching them struggle.
Please lift AMY's name in prayer...
HE knows her needs...

These are excellent verses for each of us to remember. May God bless you.

I wish I could give you a cyber hug and tell you everything will be alright. I pray that it will- It is never our decision on how things turn out. If we turn it over to God we have to trust he will do what is right for us. Sometimes all we have is Faith. I'll pray for you and yours.

I don't know what to say accept that I will pray for you. Prayer is powerful and helpful.

There are days when we need to be alone with God rather than at church. I will pray for you.
God Bless,
Ginger

This is a good reminder to all of us to place all our cares in His hands. It is a temptation to just think we have to take care of every situation ourself, and sometimes it is just too much for us. I'm praying for you.
Blessings,
Charlotte

We always want to fix things, and sometimes we have to accept the fact that we can not. We can be there for someone, we try not to let them pull us down, for we will certainly be of no use then, and we can always pray for ourselves and others, but just to turn it over to God and place it in his hands is difficult. I have never learned how to do that. It seems that caring and worrying come together hand in hand. I am not sure that I can care and not worry, but perhaps it is the height that we let the worrying climb that we are suppose not to do. Maybe we can worry, but not let it interfere with our living, and still finding joy and happiness in our own life. I guess that though we are concerned, Jesus can take the load off us so we can still enjoy his presence and the good things in life.

You did the right thing by getting alone with the Lord and giving him your burdens...just remember to leave them there...then find something to do that will put a smile into your day.

I used to be a very devote Christian. I still follow Christianity but I find that often struggle between faith and science. Have you ever experienced this?

INSIDE THE SHRINK said...

Maryia-Sky, I cannot say that I have struggled between faith and science, but I can say that science only serves to reinforce my faith. I believe that science is based on what can be proved and understood with the human mind. Faith is believing what we cannot see, what we cannot prove, what we cannot understand because we believe in the One who revealed the Word to us. You can look this up, but science has never proved anything to be true. Science can only reject what is not true. Most of what you read about science is theory. What helped me most with this issue was to ask myself "Do I believe what man in his limited knowledge and wisdom theorizes about the world and existence or do I believe the One who created it all?" Hope that helps.

It makes sense. I suppose it is not faith that I am actually thinking of. Sometimes you know somethings there and don't really need evidence to prove or disprove it. I suppose I struggle most with how people present themselves or organizations present themselves and how they actually act. Humans want to build themselves up and be great and self-less. But science would say that humans are not altruistic creatures but rather selfish creatures. Many people of faith say they are altruistic... and I struggle with this because I am not sure that is possible... I think we all benefit from it and we all know we benefit from it in some way or another. The only truly altruistic individual I can think of was Jesus. I suppose I struggle with the idea of faith making us altruistic. Though many Christians believe they are. I know I'm a selfish person, even when I try not to be. Sorry this was a long post. Guess I'm just in a chatty mood tonight.

Praying for you my friend. I have always felt that science has proven that God does exist. What happens is that we sometimes try to use science to turn the Word of God into fables so we can live our life without guilt when we allow ourselves to live as the world does. Blessings. Lloyd
