Praying Through My Triggers
Sunday, February 10, 2013
Good Morning! I have ten minutes before I leave for Church and I am confronted with one of my triggers. Triggers that shoot off my emotions. Triggers that lead me into dangerous territory! I've Been readin "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKerst and she modeled a way to combat those poisonous darts that assault us and tempt us to make bad choices.
My trigger is trying to get my family to come to Church together. Last Sunday I was the only one to go but I might as well have stayed home because I was too distracted with thoughts to actively listen. I wound up getting the CD because honestly I could not recall what was being said.
No matter who comes or doesn't come with me this morning, I will still go and worship God. I will NOT let my joy be taken. I will NOT emotionally eat in response. I am turning to God right now and nipping this thing in the bud. I am asking Him for guidance and strength to make the right choices that honor HIm. I am asking Him to help me to actively listen and not get distracted. I am asking Him to keep my mind stayed on Him I ask this in Jesus Name with thanksgiving, Amen!!
