    I am really in need of this so far today. Perhaps you are too.

    “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30 #weary #Burden #rest #TheBible #Jesus #Faith

    The Potter Knows The Clay

    What pearls of wisdom God is showing my family and I through His Word! We are never too broken in God's eyes. We are studying through this as part of my sister's homeschool and learning a lot. My mom took pottery in College and God arranged it so we got a hold of a potter's wheel and worked on throwing pots while learning this, amazing! One analogy in pottery is how inpurities in clay cause pottery to break, but that is not the end! God can create a beautiful vessel of our lives when we submit to Him, His breaking, pounding, reshaping and firing process are the struggles and trials in life. Each pain is orchestrated by Him, from a heart of love, as He makes and transforms us. He also, as a Master Craftsman, knows exactly how much we can handle, in each stage of the process. So glad HE never gives up on us, no matter our imperfection! He gently picks up the broken pieces, time and again, starts anew, forming us until we become what He designed for us to be. Jeremiah "18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 18:3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it...cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand..."
    Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
    Romans 9:20-21 "...Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?"

    Found really neat lesson on this subject where he talks through the analogy while making pottery, very powerful!

    This song also puts it beautifully:

    May you find comfort in His providential Hand as you rest in His plan, even when it's unknown.

    Not sure ho to deal with my mean cousin saying how out of shape I am and look at her she could run circles around me and she’s ten years older then me

    She was very overweight even 2-3 years ago so to make fun of my weight talking about how in shape she is is cruel and hurtful who can offer me support and love and advice? She really hurt my feelings I didn’t ask for a pandemic to make me gain weight nor did I ask for being out of shape it’s a very personal thing I have challenges she does not have such as pcos fibromyalgia and scoliosis and siatica. So to make me feel bad for my pulling my back out yesterday from having to lift a heavy Amazon box by myself I don’t have a boyfriend or husband to help me. What can I do to help myself? #PolycysticOvarySyndrome #Fibromyaliga #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #Fibromyalgia #PinchedNerve #Bipolar2Disorder #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #BorderlineStigma #PTSD #CPTSD #CPTSDinrelationships #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #pcosfighter #Aspergers #AspergersSyndrome #Anxiety #ADHD #Exercise #Yoga #BingeEatingDisorder #Art #Depression #Photography #ArtTherapy #Sports #frisbee #Walking #Love #Hugs #Faith #god #CatholicChurch #Church #Support #SupportGroups #Music #Chatting #Chatspace #Disability #Spoonie #FlareUps #flare #BipolarDisorder #BipolarDepression #MightyFeatures #MightyBookClub #MightyQuestions #TheMightyTakeaway #MyMightyMonth #TheMighty #52SmallThings #52smalltasks #CheckInWithMe #Upallnight #Selflove #Disabled #TheSecret #TheBible #goodthoughtsyourway #Positivity #sad #lonely #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #oa #HashimotosEncephalitis #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #goals #Hope #DBT #Dbtskills

    Weather & Health analogy

    Hard to believe there's snow on the ground already, it's 6-8 weeks early as we usually don't get first snow on Halloween. Monday had a record high of 92° and yesterday a record low of chilly 31°, today another record low of 22° wind chill factor of 3°. Colorado weather is known to change very rapidly, typically don't have more than 3 weeks of Fall weather, but thus is extreme even for us! Of course weather change is hard for many of us who deal with chronic pain and makes it hard to find the motivation to get out of bed. While pondering the crazy weather and reading Isaiah 40 in my devotions, the similarities with how my health has been this year came to mind. Have some good days but this year has been punctuated by many emergencies and unforseen crisis. Have literally nearly died half a dozen times this year mostly between infections and severe blood loss anemia. It's hard when you have to have the hospice and end of life conversations at 28 years old,... Routine labs today showed i need another transfusion, only been 6 days since my last one. Seems like i can never build momentum with the cycle, jumping from storm to storm. I am so glad that the One who controls the storm is my best friend! Thanked Him today for the snow that reminded me that though things look bleak, He has always been, and will be, the great I AM. Whatever my need, big or small, He is ______ so tonight I leave my pain, the crisis, the uncertainty, in the palms of His very capable Hands. I've trusted Him for my eternity so why not the journey? Isaiah 40:12, 26, 28-31Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
    My fellow mighty warriors, how has your year been so far? Are things uncertain? I ask you to join me in casting ALL our burdens to the Lord, we were never meant to endure alone. May the God of ALL peace and comfort give you rest tonight and may you rise up tomorrow with wings as Eagles. #ChronicIllness #Upallnight #Pain #ChronicPain #Anemia #Sepsis #NearDeathExperiences #Dysautonomia #Gastroparesis #Christianity #jesuslovesyou #TheBible

    #Therapy for lifelong #Trauma #PTSD 1st time at 37 #help !!!

    #Trauma #Therapy for #PTSD 1st time really “ready” to open up with #Psychiatrist at 37 #childhoodtrauma #abuse #neglect #fearofabandonment #psychologicalabuse from a father that I would describe as #CharlesManson with a #TheBible in one hand and #Alcoholism in the other. In addition to a family that #rejected me completely so much so that on both sides of my #Divorced #Family I had rules that if I walked in the room within one minute all of my cousins had to leave my #physical presence because I was just #different but never had #behavioral #Problems just major misunderstandings and what seemed like a lot of #bad luck because of the many #Labels that seem to get stuck to me throughout the years in public #Education . So I was sent to live #alone with my #Father at 11 on a #cult like farm with no access to the outside world (no modern technology including TV, Radio or Phone) and he #brainwashed me as a #Child to never speak to anyone or they would lock me up and throw away the key or call me a liar and ignore me completely. So I have major #Trust #issues and have no clue where to begin when I see my #Therapist via video this week. I also have #ADHD with a #mind that is #hyper #creative and #super analytical seems like a #Gift and #Curse when expressing my #Thoughts and #Emotions #help #Advice #ParanoidThoughts

    I watched this video this morning and it brought me to tears . As the day went by , I decided to show it to my daughter. Her eyes grew larger as he is talking about his experiences, then she told me I thought moving objects was normal. I thought floors or walls warping outward were normal. I hugged her and I told her that she didn’t make it all the way into the deep rabbit whole bc we caught her on time. Her future is Jehovah and showing others about her hope .
    Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more
    21:4-And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
