Blog Chill Day # 13 – Part 2

I would like to go back to Blog Chill Day # 13 for a moment.  The message in that blog post was that we can ONLY work on ourselves, we can not change the world, well you know what I mean… Many times when are lives are out of order, when things around us are in chaos, when we are in the midst of VERY difficult situations, we believe that the people around us are going to change… The husband or wife will realize that they have hurt us, the boss will understand that he/she are being unfair and unreasonable, the situation or circumstance will just turn around…. But what I have come to realize and most of us should understand is that the person that must change is YOU/ME, whether we are right or wrong.

About five (5) years ago, I hit a real low point, yes I know that it is hard to believe.  I won’t bore you with all the details, but I was in a depression.  You know the story about my son… my mother in law had been with us about 14 years…. I was over 50 (very menopausal) and tired of being taken for granted!!!!!  Yes, the  born organizer was in the midst of CHAOS.  A life without true order was very dark for me. At this point, the only place I could go was to the Lord.  I didn’t like my husband, I was willing to leave my children and as for my mother in law… no comment!

I want you all to pay REAL close attention!  What the Lord showed me was that …….  I had to change!  I kept trying to tell the Lord that I wasn’t the problem and He kept telling me that if I didn’t change THEN my situation wouldn’t change.  I don’t know when it happened, but slowly my perspective started to change.   So what am I saying?? FOCUS on YOU versus them, the situation or circumstance!  Ask the Lord to help you to work on you.  You will be amazed at how your perspective will change.  Now don’t get me wrong, life has not been perfect, but I have a PEACE now that I just cannot describe!!!!!!

  1. Have you read the Five Love Languages? I know you’ve gotten through that moment, but it’s helping me a lot, and not as far as dating. Just as far as how to treat people. Very cool article. Thanks for sharing.
