Where am I?

Lost, Where Am I, Reflections, Meditation, Encouragement

Do you have those fabulous days when you feel on top of the world and everything is going your way? Then do you frown on other days when it feels like the world pushed you off the planet, leaving you bewildered, weak, abandoned, lost and defeated? At some point in everyone’s life, we may try our very best to do the right thing, but sometimes it feels like things just aren’t jelling as you planned or would like for them to. The thing to avoid is giving up, even when you may feel like you don’t have the strength or one ounce of fight left inside to do anything worthwhile.

Keeping the faith and hope is hard, but it is very possible, especially in the midst of some ferocious storms (and I don’t mean weather related either). In such moments, I have to pause, and just be still, to meditate and reflect. I know I need to make certain decisions, but if I try to be the “Fixer” when I am stepping out of order, and not listening to Divine guidance, then I could be headed over a cliff with failed brakes and no parachute.

Where am I? Sometimes I know, and at other times it seems like a great big blur. We have every right to have those downer days, when we feel off balance and can’t seem to get a grip on things. We can go there, but we can’t stay there, or it is quite possible we will never survive.

As we look out into the dense fog that mars clarity of vision and awareness, then we should close our eyes, take a deep breath and exhale slowly, deliberately and peacefully. It is then that we can possibly lower the temperature on our internal pressure cooker and some things just may eventually straighten themselves out.

Hope Through Stormy Clouds

Hope, Cloudy Day, Encouragement

I Found Hope

Hope Through Stormy Clouds

The morning is stormy, cloudy and cool
the sky painted with a sadness in gray mist
mammatus clouds hanging across the sky
gloominess, yes that lack of cheerfulness exists
groping my spirit, intrusive and revolting
suddenly a hole pierced through the thick cluster
the sun beaming boldly, warm and luminescent
there I found hope gaping majestically from on high.

Attitude Climate Change

Rainy Day, Poetry, Attitude, Weather

How do you embrace those days when inclement weather overshadows the good? Do you allow it to weigh you down, put you in a bad mood, or do you find a way to make the best of an inconvenient situation? Weather happens. Life happens. We can’t control either, no matter how much we try. But when the unexpected happens, and it will, your outlook can make a big difference on your mental health and physical wellness. 

Attitude Climate Change

Oh the rippling tide as morning unfolds
a storm or a dark cloud should never make you frown
the day is new, alive and ever evolving
a torrential downpour or Monday should never get you down

such boldness of a rainbow needs the sunshine and the rain
forming a perfect arch of brilliant Pantone hues
despite fragmented emotions and hearts of despair
one can change their climate by simply changing their attitudes.

Poetry for the Day: Riding the Storm

riding the storm, eagles fly, encouragement

Riding the Storm

In the midst of the storm, hold on and wait
strong, gusty winds are reduced to a gentle breeze
heavy downpours of rain are reduced to light showers
chaos and confusion is reduced to peace
anxiety and sadness is changed to joy
fear and doubt is changed to faith
bitterness and hatred is turned into love.

Abide in Him and He in you
invite Him to stir up your gift
as you look to the end of the storm
and see the clear, golden sky
ask what you will in His name
it shall be done.

Mount up with wings as an eagle
soar to heights never before seen
gather the long awaited harvest
that survived the deadliest of storms
your fruit shall feed many
your light will inspire and lead.
