How to Get Through What You’re Going Through

Not again!!!!! Why is this happening? What am I going to do? I don’t want to be “the strong one” anymore. I don’t want to have to make such hard decisions.  What was I not paying attention to? What is the lesson I am to learn this time? How much more can I stand? I’m sooo sick & tired. If it ain’t 1 thing its a million.

OK wait…….. I’m better than this. I have been provided with the tools to deal with ”this”, I just have to clean them, sharpen them and use them properly. Besides more stress just causes negative energy to be release into your body, mind, soul and into your life. I have to get rid of the noisy & crazy chatter in my head. Avoid toxic people. So let me get very still, be quiet and breathe. Inhale positive thoughts - exhale negativity ones. I need to strengthen my spiritual muscles. 

I silently recall in all of my recent madness someone saying to me; “It’s OK to be mad as #*!!.  Just REMEMBER – Be ye angry and sin not. HE is using you as a testimony, HE is braggin’ on you that you will not buckle but instead claim HIM Victorious.”

Wow! That jolted me to true reality. I had to ask myself: Am I going to breakdown or breakthrough??

(excerpt below by Iyanla Vanzant)
It is often difficult to identify the exact moment that your life falls apart. In most cases, it is not a one-shot deal. If you ask most people who have had the experience of losing everything they love or believe in, they will probably say it was not one telephone call or one letter, one revelation or realization that caused the collapse of life as they knew it. I now understand that my life fell apart one piece at a time. Piece by piece; one experience, one situation, and one circumstance at a time, until I found myself standing in the midst of a heap of broken promises, splintered relationships, (failing health) and shattered dreams.  You see, somewhere deep inside, we all know that lives are not built to fall apart. That is just not what lives are meant to do. The lives we are given by God are meant to grow, to blossom and flourish. The reality is, however, lives do crumble.
I now realize that lives fall apart when they need to be rebuilt. Lives fall apart when the foundation upon which they were built needs to be re-laid. Lives fall apart, not because God is punishing us for what we have or have not done. Lives fall apart because they need to. They need to because they weren’t built the right way in the first place. I came to this realization one day, after many days, weeks, months, and years of trying to fix the cracks in my foundation. One day, one moment of time, as I sat helplessly surveying the broken pieces of my mind, heart, and life, I recognized that a broken life is a test of faith of the highest order.
So when your life falls apart, how will you pick up the pieces in order to have peace? STOP… Think About it.
