Definitely in my feels right now especially when the pain comes from someone close to you.
When a child is born, the skies the limit on what they can become. The problem arises when we as parent begin to place our dreams, aspirations, and goals onto them. Too many kids become adults with careers they are not passionate about simply because it was a path chosen for them. No wonder why we have so many adults that are miserable. Let the kids live.
I thank you for this day lord. I thank you for the reminder that things are not as bad as they seem. I thank you for you patience and I thank you for you love.
My three passions during my free time are polar opposites. On one end, we have watching TV. From sports to reality TV, I love watching it and definitely love binge watching. On the other end of the spectrum, I love reading. As early as the 5th grade, I loved reading Sidney Sheldon (as evident with me owning every book he has written. Finally, I love writing. I love writing in journals. This is something that I stared doing in 2004 and today I have volumes of books. Its really fun to read back on past entries and read about what I was going thru.
One thing I noticed in my journals is that my writings were following my feelings and my feelings were being influenced by what I was currently watching/reading. For example, I noticed on the months that I focused on reading the Bible’s daily from beginning to the end, my writings were full of love and admiration for Jesus. To be honest, its been awhile since I have done something like that. I will say that having something like this blog has been keeping my mind on God. People tell me that needthespirit has been a blessing for them. In reality, needthespirit has been the blessing I needed to keep my mind focus on God. Have a great day everyone. God Bless. PJSLB
