When our thoughts are lost in worry in can be helpful to focus our mind on something else. Prayer is an excellent solution as it focuses our mind on God.
It focuses our mind on all the times that things worked out for the best.
It can be hard when your in the grips of worry to think about anything else but this is exactly when you will feel the biggest benefit.
2020 vision is what I wrote at the start of my journal this year.
I thought it would be a year that everything would come together for me as my dad die is 2018 and the last two year have been a bumpy road, but it wasn’t meant to be.
2020 was a year for the whole world to see.
See just how much we have all taken for granted. See just how much freedom we all took for granted. The ability to do what you want when you wanted.
This is a luxury that millions of people all over the world don’t have. We got a taste of what it feels like to live in places like Africa, and other poor and badly run countries.
If we can learn anything from 2020 it is this, there is a greater power than ourselves. I think a lot of people lost sight of that fact.
Did the governments of this world think that they could keep destroying the planet and for nature not to fight back?
All we can do is pray.
Pray that we all learn from this wake up call, and start to change our ways.
At the moment, there are dark clouds overhead, and if you look around, you will notice that everyone is staring straight up at them.
And, if you’re not careful, you will start to do the same.
Yes, the sky is dark, but don’t follow everyone else, be one of the people that search’s the sky for that gap in the clouds. Sometimes the simple act of looking instils faith.
The moment that the gap appears only the ones that are looking will find it. That ray of light reminding you that behind the clouds is a clear blue sky.
It never went away, but its absence fooled everyone that it was gone.
If you look back through the last 100 years, there have been some very dark times in our history, but the darkness past and the sun shined again.
Until the sky clears the best that we can do is be the sunshine to all the people in our lives, and pray the dark clouds quickly drift from view.
Take some time to relax this weekend.
And by relax i don’t mean, your feet up in front of the TV watching a film, or scrolling through your phone.
True relaxation is when you make a conscious decision to relax. Saying, I’m going to take 5 – 10 – 15 minutes and just sit with my eyes closed in a quiet room or lay down on a bed.
Just being thankful for the week.
When you do this your body will tell you how tired you are.
It is so easy to keep going week to week without taking time out to be at one with yourself and God.
Re-energise this weekend, and inspire one person to do the same.
Wishing you health and happiness.
