NO IT WASN’T A DREAM ❀
The second my eyes opened this morning,
and I realized that every worry I fell asleep with
was not just a dream, I felt immediately overwhelmed.
“I can’t start my day like this” I told myself.
I was unable to move.
I lay there with my eyes closed as the reel
of the previous days events ran through my mind.
I needed to figure out a way to deal with all this,
to fix all this, and to figure out how to make it all better.
With little to no patience for self pity,
I opened my eyes and let out an UGH!
“Get a hold of yourself and get up!” I told myself.
So I took in three big breaths
and said one of my favorite prayers. ✞
It is short, easy to remember, and it gives me strength.
More than anything it gives me the feeling
of God’s power and protection.
I know we all have these kinds of days now and again
and most of the time, we muddle through
hanging on to every minute as they pass.
But I really don’t feel well when I take this approach.
Not only do my worries bog me down
but my physical health feels compromised.
My back tightens up and my stomach
turns into a burning knot.
When this happens I can barely function.
So I said my prayers this morning;
then I said them again and again.
In fact I will say them many more times throughout my day.
Along with my Guardian Angel Prayer,
repeating these small passages
and reaching out to God for guidance and strength,
I know I can get through all this chaos
and come out the other end with my sanity in tact.
(Here are my prayers.)
✞ “My body, mind and soul
are unified within the Light of Jesus Christ
and the Fire of The Holy Spirit.”
✞ “Angel of God, my guardian dear,
for whom God’s love commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side
to light and guard, to rule and guide.”
I hope you have a blessed day my friend. ♡
