The shadow

Discouraged in the day. Nightmares at night.

I am going to try to:
1. Focus on living in the moment according to Mt 6:34
2. Focus on others rather than myself.
3. Trust in God's providence/Pray when I feel worried.
4. Think about "whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable... anything [that] is excellent or praiseworthy."
Please feel free to share one thing you do that helps you in times like this.

Very good post. Love the objectives and the scripture quote at the end is one of my favorites!

i was struggling last month with some health problems, and letting my mind wander to those fears. my friend reminded me "be self-controlled and alert". it helped me a lot to realize that i can choose to have self-control and not entertain those fearful or discouraging thoughts and instead focus on the fact that "the Lord will uphold [my family] with His right hand of righteousness."

I'm sorry you're experiencing this.

I ask people to pray for me, especially my awesome family. Do you have a mother or mentor who you can talk to and have pray for you? I ask my husband to pray for me, too. He's not an explicitly "spiritual" type, but I still find his prayers are the most effective for me.

I will pray for you, too. :)
