Thursday's Dose - March 28th 2013 


Today's Scripture

"These liars have lied so well and for so long that they've lost their capacity for truth." - 1 Timothy 4:2 MSG.

Thoughts for Today

One danger of prolonged delusion—failing to acknowledge the problems of a loved one or our own struggles and feelings—is that our feelings become numb. We come to believe our own lies. At this point, we are blind to the problems. Others see our struggles, but we don't.

Healing cannot come until we reach the point of choosing to acknowledge the problems, the struggles, the fears and guilt—whether they belong to our loved one … or us … or both.

Consider this …

Have you denied your problem to the point that you stopped seeing it? Are you ready to acknowledge it? To face it and deal with it? To ask for help? To seek God's forgiveness and guidance?

Recognizing the feelings that might have become numb can be an important step toward dealing with them. And once you begin to know your feelings, the next step is to learn how to appropriately express them to the significant people in your life. Tomorrow we will talk about expressing your feelings with "I-messages" and "you-messages."

Prayer : "Our Loving Father, I lied to myself so long that I became blind to these problems. My eyes are beginning to open. Help me deal with my feelings and learn to express them to you and to others. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
