Looking back over my journal entries from last year revealed one reoccurring theme to me. Just how much I lived by my emotions. Not only was I pregnant during this time but to top it all off, I truly endured some rather trying test and trials. So I wanted to explore this topic because, in a sermon, I heard a pastor say "As long as you can be moved, you can't be effective!" This statement struck a chord with me because I've experienced plenty of moments where I have allowed my feelings to run the course of my day, in turn, causing me not to get much, if anything, accomplished.
Has anyone ever assumed something about you? Was it something true or was it something completely false? Many times when people believe something they take it as the truth, whether the information is right or wrong. I have had my share of different things people have assumed about me over the years. Everything from "I thought you were shy and quiet" to "I thought you had a baby while in college and that is why you dropped out."
Have you ever bitten off more than you could chew? Well lately, I have been trying to solve the puzzle of my own life to the point where it has consumed my time and attention along with my many other daily responsibilities. Yesterday during my morning routine, I felt the tugging from the Holy Spirit to spend time with God but I just could not bring myself to do it. The only thing I could bring myself to do was just vent to God about everything that was bothering me mixed in with a whole lot of tears like in Psalms 102:1. After regaining my composure, I came to the realization that I was overwhelmed.
