Rearrange

If you are anything like I was then you understand what I mean when I say "I grew comfortable in my pain". It was as if I had grown accustomed to how things were and I was afraid to make any changes. Sure, it hurt, but the pain became a normal part of life; like eating, breathing, or crying... a lot of crying.

When the pain gets great enough you will move from needing change to wanting change. How great did my pain need to get? How much more could I take? Was I becoming more numb by the day? Somewhere deep down inside I knew I needed change, but did I really want it? I mean REALLY?

How great does your pain need to be for you?

Unplugged Life

What happens when we pull the plug on a lamp? The light goes out. This is easy enough to fix, but what happens when the light goes out in our lives? How do we fix that?

All of us have attempted to change. Most of us have spent all of our energies in trying new formulas or methods in order to improve our lives. Sadly, if you are reading this article, those formulas and methods have have only provided a temporary at best solution to what feels like a permanent problem. We are left with an "on again off again" problem that seems to drain us of any power we thought we might have had.

Where do we go from here?

Worry

It has been said that even when you do a hundred things right, it is the one wrong thing you do that people will remember. Well, what about us? I think we are a whole lot more guilty of this concerning ourselves!

If you are anything like me, I spend way to much time planning my failure, thinking about all that has gone wrong, and finding all the places I think God isn't at work in my life. Exhausting doesn't even come close to the emotional drain that worry has on us! So what's the answer?
