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!!

    I'm going to read Made to Crave after I finish reading The Spark. It is hard to remember that we are the only ones we can control. I'm sorry your family doesn't go to church with you, but maybe through your faithful example the will be convicted by God to go with you. emoticon

    I agree too, just keep doign what you know is right. Let God do the changing of hearts. As hard as that is to let go, and Let God. He knows your desires, keep delightin in Him :) He is more than able! Hope you were able to enjoy the CD service :)

    I hope you enjoyed the service and were able to focus and listen as you desired. It was so wise of you to pray about it prior to going to church.

    Have a lovely rest of Sunday and a great week!

    It would be nice to have your whole family with you and something you can keep praying about. I thought Sandra's response to this was great. Continue to serve Him and He will bless you beyond your imagination.

    Hugs, Sunny
