NO IT WASN’T A DREAM ❀

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.
