Can You Hear Me Now?

Mind Revival

There is always lots of STUFF going on in our lives. That’s why we’re supposed to experience the journey and not skip ahead, fully relishing every lesson and experience, good AND bad.

Here’s my journey these days:

My FAVORITE women’s group “Come As You Are” (CAYA) is resuming not church-affiliated, for all women…
Work is unstable and more layoffs are coming…
My husband still amazes me with his love everyday…
Niece still refuses to move away from abusive boyfriend…
The weather is so SPRING-LIKE…
Church is just a place to go on Sunday morning…
I get to go hear an incredible Choir this weekend…
Negative Nelly (in the cubicle in front of me) has reached an all time low in negativity…
Negative Nelly reminds me to renew my mind daily…
Paint fumes at work are burning my eyes…
Our department renovations are almost complete…

I got a new CD last weekend. It’s the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, “I’ll Say Yes” (click that link to hear some of the cd) I had forgotten how incredible it is to hear 290 voices all singing together to create an absolute angelic sound. Though from what I understand the angel chorus will be something none of us has EVER even come close to experiencing.

There is a song on this cd that I use each day as part of my ‘renew your mind daily’, it’s called “I Never Lost My Praise”.

I’ll share some of the lyrics here…

I’ve lost some good friends along life’s way
Some loved ones departed in heaven to stay
But thank God I didn’t lose everything.

I’ve lost faith in people who said they cared
In the time of my crisis they were never there
But in my disappointment in my season of pain
One thing never wavered, one thing never changed.

I never lost my HOPE
I never lost my JOY
I never lost my FAITH
But most of all
I never lost my PRAISE!

It goes on but trust me you need to hear this song!

So I’m sitting here in my MIND REVIVAL just focusing on God’s plan that overrides everything and everybody else!

I'll be praying for ya over the work thing.

Hey, sometimes women in abusive relationships believe that they can't do any better. The abuser has a way of making her think a)it's her fault, and b)she's too fat, ugly, stupid, or whatever, for anyone else to want her. (I was there once) It doesn't really help to try to tell her "you can do it", but building her confidence without seeming to lead her will help. When the time is right, she will call on that confidence to do what she needs to do. I remember Dobson once spoke about "speaking a future" into a person. He meant to look into what that person's gifts were and encourage those gifts. We have a young girl now that we are trying to encourage to go to school by showing her that she has other talents than retail work. Specifically, she is good with kids, so my husband asked her to help coach his middle school softball team. Now that she is hooked on that (she LOVES it) we are telling her things like "you are so good with the girls, you'd make such a good teacher." Whether she becomes a teacher or not, is not the point. It's trying to help her see that she has OTHER abilities and potential, that can get her past a dead-end, cut-throat retail career.

Re the previous post, what a great compliment. I could never have been a supervisor.

Kristen finally got the strength to leave her abusive husband - I saw it so clearly for such a long time. Praise the Lord!

I love the Brooklyn Tab Choir - I saw a video of them recently and was surprised to see so many white folks in the choir - we love to sing their songs in our little choir, but we don't quite get the "feeling." But we love their songs.

Enjoy the spring air! We've had a bit, too. But we need some snow so badly. Or rain.
