Sometimes it's the littlest of things that can help.
Today I started looking back through some things I've written down to help along this journey. I recorded quotes, sayings and words of encouragement. Some are my own, some are from others, some are from the Bible, and some are even from movies I've watched.
I'd like to share a few with you .... because I realized recently, sometimes simple words can make a huge difference when life is hard. No matter where you are on your own journey, you are not alone. You matter, you are loved, God sees all of you even the parts you try to hide ... and he loves you still!
This first saying makes me chuckle. Use whatever will help you!!! I'll add more and some art soon.
If you're ex calls you at 2 am saying he can't sleep, tell him to read
Isaiah 48:22 "There's no rest for the wicked."
They didn't discard you for someone better. They discarded you for someone who can't see who they are under the mask.
3 simple rules in life
If you don't go after what you want you'll never have it.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault and it will be given to you. ~James 1:15
If it's meant to be, it will happen.
Let it be.
What God knows about me
Is more important
Than what others think of me
When you are resting because you are exhausted, remember that you are not wasting the day doing nothing. You are doing exactly what you need to do....you are recovering.
God does not give you the people you want, He gives you the people you need.
Keep on your healing journey, try and find fulfillment in the things you like to do. This is a golden opportunity to build your life, your way.
The trauma is real and haunts us long after we are free. Healing comes as we learn to love ourselves, and unconditionally accept ourselves. Our neediness fades.
The reliance on technology to solve every question confuses people's perception of their own knowledge and intelligence. This may lead to overconfidence and poor decision making.
Neuroplasticity: brains ability to be changed and shaped by our actions and our environment
A Toxic person ~ hides who they are and tries to become who they think people want them to be. How can anyone feel loved when they hide who they are? Don't hide child of God.
Problems are a lot like that tree stump; if you work at it a little bit every day sooner or later it won't be there anymore.
Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. (Albert Einstein)
Sometimes I have to turn off my whirlwind of thoughts, and the only way for me to do that is to create art!
Jump in child, I will not let you drown! I am here.
God keeps reaching for you, pulling you out of the darkness, into His light, love and truth.
He will keep calling you back. No matter how many times you wander off course. His purpose for you is too important to be brushed aside because of fear, failures or flaws. He has you under the shadow of his wings.
What an abuser does is a reflection of his character.
How you respond is a reflection of yourcharacter.
Fight lies with facts.
React with rational thoughts not feelings.
Pray, before responding.
Sometimes, there is no need to respond at all.
It is not going to be easy. The best things never are. But how has choosing what's easy helped you so far?
Pray for God to bring people into your life who motivate, encourage and believe in you. Pray for God to reveal the truth in anyone who is deceptive or is simply a distraction from His purpose for your life. Have the courage to pull the weeds.
Reading the words of an author is equal to reading her deepest thoughts, and knowing her mind.
You are not alone!
