Prayer, meditation, talking with trusted friends and dancing to blow off steam. This morning, it is Saturday and I feel well, content and ready to take on whatever comes my way.
1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with that temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
There is always a way of escaping feelings that lead to destructive behavior. For me, being a physical person, dance is a fabulous way to release tensions and bring joy. I've been a dancer all my life. When there is music it is difficult for me to be still. It's better yet, when you are joined with a positive spirit to dance along with you.
I have been blessed to be surrounded by a group of positive, compassionate, supportive women friends. They lift me up everyday and help me to keep life in perspective. My lot in life has been a difficult one. I feel truly grateful for it. Because; I have grown spiritually, physically and feel I have and will continue to make a positive difference in the world around me.
Isaiah 61:3 “To grant those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”
One day, I will experience the fruits of my labor and be free to look back and say, job well done. Fantasizing freedom from depression.
