Not long after that I see the news, many people shot to pieces in NYC Subway. I made the choice to look. But I wish I hadn't. I can pray for them.The "world" has a way of promoting what is not good for the heart...
Recently, I have deleted bad playlists to get closer to God. I still listen to some, but I know when to stop, listen to worship music, and just worship God. I hope as I grow in my faith, I will cut off all bad music. It will take time.
Who listens to grocery store music? I find no interest in the stuff they play…LMAO 🤣🤣🤣
I struggle more with my mind telling me bad things about myself, and anxiety, than I do with worldly music. I am slowly changing my mindset. I am so excited about this new cross necklace I just bought for myself! It is gorgeous!
Always, that is besides the point. 🥴
I realized that it can be a reminder to me that Jesus is always with me, even when bad thoughts are going through my head, and I feel alone. :)
I think "bad" thoughts are part of the stress of life, come and go. I do believe "Paul" had similar challenges. Old wounds and stuff we take on. Jesus shows how to overcome that but it's a daily "pickup your cross". In your case, you can just pickup your necklace:) Girls do love jewlery don't they!:)
Its always playing at stores and the gym, some of it is awful to my ears.
Paul went through bad thoughts? I don’t remember reading about that. 🤔
Yeaaaa…I still have a bit of childhood trauma to overcome. 🥴
Hahaha…yes, some of us do. The necklace has the Lord prayer on the inside. ^-^
I think as long as it is not a crucifix, I can wear it (I am Pentecostal). ^-^
I'd have to dig up that verse, "I do what I don't want to". Romans 7:15. he's battling his own issues...
yea, Paul had some serious trauma... chasing down Christians and having them stoned to death, seeing Stephen killed, ship wrecked... quite a life. I visited the place in Rome where he was imprissoned, wrote some of the books we read, and killed... it's a hole in the ground, frightening.
Sorry to hear that, most of us do have issues to overcome, it's a messed up world. Getting a perspective above the trauma is one thing that helps gain power over what happened.
sadly I'm not well versed in denominations (pentocostal), I am glad you got a good grip on that and found refuge. Have a good Easter/resurection day!
Oooh, I have read that chapter before. It is interesting to learn about things I missed in previous chapters. It adds more to my understanding.
That is cool! I didn’t even know that place was still around. 😮
Yes, that is true.
Thank you! Same to you! :)
