Dealing With Downers

Disappointment quote with pic of a puppy dog

Don’t entertain those

Dogged disappointment days

Dismiss and disown

Them from depressing your life

Discuss your problems

Resolve to dissolve

Seek the positive

Discover ways to overcome

Don’t let despondency win

Choka

There’s always failure. And there’s always disappointment. And there’s always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums.” —Michael J. Fox

Again

Sad, Happy emoji

I worried

And wondered although

God said don’t

Syllable Lune

Sound familiar?

God says not to worry yet again I find myself doing so.

God says not to wonder about the future yet I often do that too.

Why do I do that?

He’s shown me time and time again that He’s trustworthy, that He’ll always be there for me, that He loves me and cares for me, and wants to heal me and give me an abundant blessed life, yet when a new problem arises I somehow find myself lapsing back into worry and wonder.

Ah, “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” said Jesus (Matthew 26:41)

Forgive me God.

I love You and I am so happy that you love me and are patient with me.

…“Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief” Mark 9:24

Letting Go

Every day has its challenges.
All life has ups and downs.
 Many a day problems will come,
And turn smiles into frowns.
Focusing on what should have been,
And complaining negatively,
Is not going to change the present,
Or make “if only” come to be.
Therefore when upsets come,
It’s best to just smile and say,
“This isn’t what I hoped would happen,
But I’ll make the best of it anyway”
